At the Arthouse 

Some new, some old, all good

Mr. Hulot's Holiday

Director Jacques Tati's breakthrough movie (from 1953) doesn't offer much of a plot: Monsieur Hulot (played by Tati) goes to the beach for a summer vacation. But that's just an excuse to toss the bumbling character into a bunch of slapstick situations by the water for an hour and a half. The near-silent film has influenced generations of filmmakers — from Peter Sellers (The Party and The Pink Panther movies both pay tribute) to Jean-Pierre Jeunet (its inspiration is all over Amélie). The Cinematheque is showing a shiny new restored version this week. The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. At 7 p.m. Thursday, November 4, and 5:15 p.m. Saturday, November 6.
