Restored ‘Tabu’ Showing In Frisco

The Castro Theater will screen a restored print of “Tabu” Jan. 28 and 29 (with Bob Vaughn on the Wurlitzer). F.W. Murnau and Robert Flaherty’s collaboration was pulled from distribution in the 1930s and hasn’t been seen by U.S. audiences since, except for a censored version released in 1948.

The Castro Theater in San Francisco also will unspool, from Feb. 1 to 7, a restored, uncut (311 minutes) print of Bernardo Bertolucci’s “1900,” now rated NC-17. Initial, R-rated version lost some of its spice when it was cut to 243 minutes for its 1977 debut.
