The Provincetown Film Art Series, now in its 13th year, is sponsored by the Provincetown Film Society and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and curated and hosted by Howard Karren, arts editor of the Banner. Discounted passes for 16 films, running from November to May, cost $185 (or $135 for members of PFS or PAAM) and are available at paam.org and watersedgecinema.org. Individual tickets are $12, $8 for members, except for the launch this Sunday, Nov. 11, which is $40.
The Sunday “kickoff celebration” film is “Once Upon a Time in America,” Sergio Leone’s 1984 epic about Jewish gangsters in Brooklyn from Prohibition to the 1960s, starring Robert De Niro, James Woods and Elizabeth McGovern. This restored version runs 4 hours and 10 minutes, and will screen with an intermission. A reception will begin at 1 p.m. with the movie at 2 p.m.
