Film (Summer Classics): "Chinatown"

-

Location: Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Directed by Roman Polanski 
With Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston 
Rated R, 130 minutes, BluRay 
English with Spanish subtitles 

Chinatown ultimately became Roman Polanski’s last film to be shot in the United States and remains a classic depiction of Los Angeles, which is no short order. The neo-noir mystery follows fedora-wearing private investigator Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) as he picks up a seemingly routine infidelity case involving Mr. and Mrs. Mulwray. When Mr. Mulwray is snuffed out, the plot thickens as Jake noses around Depression-era Southern California.
