CAPTAIN AMERICA (1990) The Director’s Cut, One Screening only this Sunday with Director Albert Pyun

 

Everyone's on the edge of their seats looking forward to the latest Marvel adaptation, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. But there's a long history of Cap on film. And by far the most interesting so far has been Albert Pyun's troubled 1990 adaptation of the character. A few weeks into production on this big-budget spectacle, funding was pulled back drastically and the finished product never really satisfied anyone, least of all director Pyun, who had high hopes of bringing Captain America into a relevant modern framework. Now, Pyun has rescued the original elements of the film and created a restored director's cut.

This Sunday night at the Ritz, we'll be showing Pyun's own cut of the film and welcoming the man in person to tell his own story of its making and of the joy of bringing it back from the dead. Buy tickets here for this very special show.

The following afternoon we'll also be showing Pyun's latest, TALES OF AN ANCIENT EMPIRE. If you loved THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER, and lord knows we do, don't miss this.
