Once Upon a Time . . . at the Dryden

As Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time . . . In Hollywood continues to be placed on year-end top-ten lists, the Dryden Theatre takes the opportunity to look back at late-1960s American cinema. The film industry was in transition, still turning out all genres—action, comedy, melodrama, musical, horror—but with a tenor much different from that of previous decades. This spurred the birth of what would come to be known as “The New Hollywood.” All titles in this series are seen or referenced in Tarantino’s latest film and represent an industry trying to find its footing in the middle of a downturn, just prior to exploding again.
