In the swift, cynical Sweet Smell of Success, directed by Alexander Mackendrick, Burt Lancaster stars as the vicious Broadway gossip columnist J. J. Hunsecker, and Tony Curtis as Sidney Falco, the unprincipled press agent Hunsecker ropes into smearing the up-and-coming jazz musician romancing his beloved sister. Featuring deliciously unsavory dialogue, in an acid, brilliantly structured script by Clifford Odets and Ernest Lehman, and noirish neon cityscapes from Oscar-winning cinematographer James Wong Howe, Sweet Smell of Successis a cracklingly cruel dispatch from the kill-or-be-killed wilds of 1950s Manhattan.

- ‘The After Hours’ is a program that runs on weeknights, mainly focusing on 20th-century gems. The goal is to encourage Jakartans to tweak their work-gossip-complain-work lifestyle to something more substantial to dig (well..once in a while). The films are mostly 100 mins or less but with no subsequent official discussion. We guarantee you’d have a good course of topic to talk about with colleagues the next day. If not, then we fail.
- Notes for attendees: The After Hours has 'first come first serve policy'. So if you are on the waiting list you can still watch the movie as long as you come early/on time to attend the screening. Also, after 08.15 pm we won't accept anymore guest because we do not want our attendees who come on time to be disturbed while watching the movie.
