Hard Eight in 35MM

Professional gambler Sydney teaches John the tricks of the trade. John does well until he falls for cocktail waitress Clementine.

John has lost all his money. He sits outside a diner in the desert when Sydney happens along, buys him coffee, then takes him to Reno and shows him how to get a free room without losing much money. Under Sydney's fatherly tutelage, John becomes a successful small-time professional gambler, and all is well, until he falls for Clementine, a cocktail waitress and sex worker.

The debut of PTA (There Will Be Blood, The Master), presented on 35mm!

"This first feature by writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson is impressive for its lean and unblemished storytelling, but even more so for its performances." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

"Movies like Hard Eight remind me of what original, compelling characters the movies can sometimes give us." - Roger Ebert

"Gamblers live for the moment - for the next bet, the one that will take them over the top - and this gilt-edged noir contraption is an enjoyable wallow in life-is-a-craps-table existentialism." - Entertainment Weekly
