Still image from the film The Last Emperor
Peking, 1908: A three-year-old boy is removed from his home and mother and is carried through the night to the Forbidden City in the heart of China. His name is Pu Yi and his abduction will alter China’s history forever. Despite its cast of thousands, palatial and exotic locations, and sumptuous designs, the film remains an intimate portrait of an extraordinary and unique man and his journey of self-discovery. The film won nine Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Costume Design, for James Acheson. (35mm presentation)

James Acheson is scheduled to be present.
