Rialto returning Fellini’s ‘Nights’ to the big screen

'57 foreign Acad winner gets 35mm print

NEW YORK — Rialto Pictures plans to release a restored version of Federico Fellini’s Oscar-winning “Nights of Cabiria.”

Pic will open in June at New York’s Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.

“Nights” won the Academy Award for best foreign-language film in 1957. It starred Fellini’s wife, Giulietta Masina, as a streetwalker living on the outskirts of Rome.

For the past four decades, “Nights” has been shown in 16mm prints and video. Rialto’s new 35mm print will be made from a fully restored negative. Restoration work is being done in Rome by specialty lab Studio Cine under the supervision of Canal Plus Image Intl.

Rialto co-presidents Bruce Goldstein and Mike Thomas, a former co-president of Strand Releasing, joined forces last year following their success with the re-release of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Contempt.”

The company plans to re-release American and European classics by such helmers as Luis Bunuel, Jean-Pierre Melville, Carol Reed, John Schlesinger and Michael Powell.
