60th Anniversary Screening. The raw emotions and crackling dialogue rumble like a thunderstorm in this screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman. As the family of a wealthy Southern patriarch (Burl Ives) learns he is dying of cancer, lies and secrets surface which threaten to rip the family apart. One self-seeking son (Jack Carson) claims to love his father, while favorite son and troubled ex-sports hero Brick (Newman) drinks too much, won’t have sex with his beautiful wife (Taylor) who adores him, and refuses to confront the reason why. The film garnered six Oscar® nominations, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Picture. (2K DCP Presentation)
