‘Heaven’s Gate’ to close Lumiere festival

Classic film event to screen newly restored print

PARIS — A newly restored print of Michael Cimino’s Western epic “Heaven’s Gate” will close Lyon’s Lumiere Film Festival on Oct. 21.

The 1980 pic, which flopped at the U.S. box office after being heavily trimmed by United Artists, has been digitally restored by U.S. distributor Criterion in a 3:36 version edited by Cimino. The film, which will screen in Lyon on Oct. 21, will be presented by French thesp Isabelle Huppert.

The restored print preemed at the Venice fest, and it’s also set to unspool at the New York festival on Oct. 5.

Carlotta, a distributor specializing in classics, will release the pic in France in January.

Criterion, which will be feted at the Lyon fest for its contribution to the distribution of classic pics, will roll-out “Heaven’s Gate” on DVD and Blu-ray in November.

Presided by vet helmer Bertrand Tavernier and headed by Cannes fest topper Thierry Fremaux, the Lumiere festival celebrates film legends and classics from around the world.

Fest runs Oct. 15-21.
