The Seventh Seal

Sun Mar 18 2018, 07:00 PM - 09:30 PM

2018 is the great Swedish director Ingmar Bergman's centenary year. Throughout the year, we'll be showing his films as part of our various special events series, as a testament to the power and breadth of his achievement.

Clyde Coffee and The Roxy Theater are thrilled to present Cinema Abroad, a series of classic and contemporary foreign films.

Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.
