Francis Ford Coppola’s One From the Heart was a colossal flop when it was first released in 1982, but it has aged surprisingly well. With colourful, slightly surreal cinematography and a terrific soundtrack by Tom Waits and Crystal Gayle, it’s well worth revisiting – the Cinémathèque is presenting a newly-restored 35mm print as part of a retrospective on colour in film curated by Hors-Champ magazine. 335 de Maisonneuve E., 7 p.m., $10/$9 students
