Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The struggle between the strictures of religion and our own brute animal nature plays out amid the beautifully forbidding landscapes of remote Iceland in this stunning psychological epic from director Hlynur Pálmason.
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
Hot-tempered and fiercely independent, Julia (Julie Ledru) is a gearhead who thrives in hostile environments and turns every situation to her advantage.
Little Richard: I Am Everything
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
Director Lisa Cortés’ eye-opening documentary explodes the whitewashed canon of American pop music, shining a clarifying light on the Black, queer origins of rock ’n’ roll, and establishing the genre’s big bang: Richard Wayne Penniman.
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men franchise) stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage).
Dracula (1931)
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
Director Todd Browning’s pre-code work of “romantic horror” DRACULA, based on the 1924 stage play “Dracula,” which in turn was adapted from the 1897 novel of the same name by Bram Stoker.
Dracula (1979)
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
Underrated at the time of its release, John Badham’s 1979 Dracula fully deserves a revival on the big screen. This lavish production was based on a successful Broadway play, with Frank Langella reprising his role as the bloodthirsty count.
Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
The world wasn’t clamoring for a new Dracula in 1992, yet master filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola managed to deliver one so lavish and finely crafted that it now stands comfortably with the best cinematic versions of Bram Stoker’s genre-defining novel.
Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979)
Harris Theater
Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
Werner Herzog’s arresting version of NOSFERATU was not, he insisted, a remake of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 classic ("the greatest German film," according to Herzog) but rather a tribute to it and the German Expressionist film tradition of the silent era.

About The Harris Theater

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust's Harris Theater is one of the most active arts facilities in the region showing art films nearly every day of the year.

Formerly known as the Art Cinema, the Harris Theater represents a milestone in the redevelopment of Liberty Avenue. The Art Cinema was the first moving picture house in Pittsburgh to commercially show art movies until competition from other city theaters led to its conversion to an adult movie house in the 1960s. As part of its mission to transform the Cultural District, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchased and restored the facility leading to further conversions of run-down properties along the Liberty Avenue corridor. With a total of 194 seats, including a fully restored balcony, the Harris Theater officially opened to the public for movies and live performances on November 9, 1995. The theater is one of the few that has retained 35mm film projectors that are utilized regularly.

The Harris was named through a gift from the Buhl Foundation after John P. Harris, co-founder of the Nickelodeon—the first theater solely dedicated to the showing of motion pictures—and a Pennsylvania State Senator. The Harris Theater features contemporary, foreign, and classic films.
