New Restoration! 50th Anniversary!


In Norman Jewison’s explosive, racially-charged film, Sidney Poitier stars as Virgil Tibbs, Philly’s #1 homicide detective who finds himself at odds with everyone from cops to killers when he gets swept up in a murder investigation in small town Mississippi. Rod Steiger co-stars as the town’s racist sheriff who begrudgingly admits that he could use the help of this big-city ‘boy.’


With staggeringly powerful performances by both Poitier and Steiger, IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT was a monster hit upon its release and won 5 Oscars including Best Picture (though, tellingly, Poitier wasn’t even nominated). It remains, to this day, a superlative film with remarkable talent both in front of and behind the camera – shot by Haskell Wexler, edited by Hal Ashby, music by Quincy Jones – and is not to be missed on the big screen in this new 50th anniversary restoration.


IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT (1967) dir Norman Jewison w/Sidney Poitier, Rod Steiger, Warren Oates, Lee Grant [109 min; DCP]
