The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present a newly-restored print of the 1967 classic “In Cold Blood” on [ Friday, November 10th ] at [ 8PM ] at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre. The screening will be followed by a reunion of some of the film’s key players, including stars Scott Wilson and John Forsythe; cinematographer Conrad Hall, who received an Academy Award nomination for his work on the film, Quincy Jones, who wrote the film’s Academy Award-nominated original music score, and assistant director Tom Shaw.

The pair were captured, imprisoned and ultimately hanged for the crime.
