Sunday Cinema: American Montage—Chinatown
This three-part Sunday Cinema series, curated by artist Adam Cvijanovic, is presented in conjunction with his exhibition American Montage. These films represent major influences on both American film and the artist’s contemporary art practice.
Chinatown (directed by Roman Polanski, 1974, 130 min.)
Los Angeles, a city already precarious in its desert location where no city should logically exist, is the site for Polanski’s noir crime drama. The city is seen as even more impermanent as wealthy crooks work to divert scarce water resources. Jack Nicholson’s character, J. J. Gittes, takes on an adultery case that becomes a meditation on the city itself.

Children with adults may pick up a self-guided activity at the Visitor Services Desk and follow the clues on this “ART-tastic” adventure. When finished with the activity, children may pick up a take-home art-making activity kit.
