MOCA Cleveland Hosts Screening of 1956 James Dean Film ‘Giant’ at the Cinematheque

Thu 7/27 @ 6:30PM

MOCA Cleveland is partnering with its neighbor a block away, the Cinematheque at the Cleveland Institute of Art, to present a special screening of a classic film. The 1956 film Giant was the last screen appearance by James Dean before his legendary death in an auto accident. It paired him with two other stars associated with tragedy: Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson, both then at the peak of their beauty and allure, as well as a star who was lesser known at the time, Dennis Hopper.

MOCA is sponsoring the screening to complement one of its current shows, Keith Mayerson: My American Dream, which features more than 100 paintings, many of subjects from popular culture, including James Dean — one of them inspired by Giant.

Admission is $11; it’s $8 for MOCA and Cinematheque members and those under 25.
