DAYS OF HEAVEN (1978) Directed by Terrence Malick, 95 min.

"Days of Heaven is above all one of the most beautiful films ever made. Malick's purpose is not to tell a story of melodrama, but one of loss. His tone is elegiac. He evokes the loneliness and beauty of the limitless Texas prairie." - Roger Ebert

"To hell with equivocation or beating around the bush: Terrence Malick's 1978 Days of Heaven is the greatest film ever made. And let the word film be emphasized, since Malick's sophomore masterpiece earns this exalted designation from its position as a work of pure cinema." - Nick Schager, Slant


Masks required.

Concessions will be available from Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens. Outside food and drink not permitted.

Stan Hywet grounds will open at 7:00 p.m.

Chairs provided for first come, first served seating.

We will space groups up to four people each.

The Nightlight’s programs have been made possible by grants from GAR Foundation, Akron Community Foundation, Ohio Arts Council and Corbin Foundation.

We are unable to offer member discounts to this series, but all current memberships will be extended by the length of The Nightlight's closure.

About the Admission + Donation options

On March 15th, The Nightlight Cinema moved to an online virtual cinema platform due to Covid-19. With the Nightlight Under the Stars screening series, we are excited to safely offer a live cinema experience as an option for our audiences while we continue to operate our virtual screening rooms. Making this commitment takes money, but we also must remain accessible and keep ticket prices affordable. Will you consider a donation to The Nightlight in addition to your ticket purchase? Together, we can continue to advance cinema and community in tandem. The Nightlight is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit art house theater in the heart of Akron. Your donation is fully tax deductible. If you are interested in making a larger donation or becoming a marquee sponsor for our screening series, please email Board Chair James Crutchfield at info@nightlightcinema.com.
