About This MovieToggle

In between making The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, Francis Ford Coppola made a thriller starring Gene Hackman. Your votes are counted, and up next at the Hollywood Theatre is The Conversation, showing Thursday, July 30 at 7:30PM.

Need a refresher? Here’s the short version:

Harry Caul is a devout Catholic and a lover of jazz music who plays his saxophone while listening to his jazz records. He is a San Francisco-based electronic surveillance expert who owns and operates his own small surveillance business. He is renowned within the profession as being the best, one who designs and constructs his own surveillance equipment. He is an intensely private and solitary man in both his personal and professional life, which especially irks Stan, his business associate who often feels shut out of what is happening with their work. This privacy, which includes not letting anyone into his apartment and always telephoning his clients from pay phones is, in part, intended to control what happens around him. His and Stan’s latest job (a difficult one) is to record the private discussion of a young couple meeting in crowded and noisy Union Square. The arrangement with his client, known only to him as “the director”, is to provide the audio recording of the discussion and photographs of the couple directly to him alone in return for payment. Based on circumstances with the director’s assistant, Martin Stett, and what Harry ultimately hears on the recording, Harry believes that the lives of the young couple are in jeopardy. Harry used to be detached from what he recorded, but is now concerned ever since the deaths of three people that were the direct result of a previous audio recording he made for another job. Harry not only has to decide if he will turn the recording over to the director, but also if he will try and save the couple’s lives using information from the recording.

If only the people who were here for the Theatre’s Prohibition-era silent film premiere in 1926 could see it now. Their jaws would drop (and so might their beer). Fabulous new features: Beautiful new marquee designed after the original 1926 marquee New 50-ft. screen i... Read More.
