Chinatown Unboxing

One of the greatest films of all time, Roman Polanski’s noir masterpiece Chinatown makes its long-awaited 4K UHD debut with breathtaking results. The film looks and sounds absolutely magnificent, pulling us right into the corrupt, sweaty 1937 Los Angeles like never before. This film should be considered truly essential to any self-respecting film enthusiast’s collection, and Paramount’s lavish Limited Edition is an embarrassment of riches – a poster, art cards, prop reproductions and the film all housed within a beautiful rigid slipcase.

Synopsis

One of the most essential film noir classics, CHINATOWN comes to 4K Ultra HD™ for its 50th Anniversary. Jack Nicholson is unforgettable as private eye Jake Gittes, living off the murky moral climate of sunbaked pre-war Southern California. 

Hired by a beautiful socialite (Faye Dunaway) to investigate her husband’s extra-marital affair, Gittes is swept into a maelstrom of double dealings and deadly deceits as he uncovers a web of personal and political scandals that come crashing together in one unforgettable night.

  • Rigid board slipcase
  • Theatrical poster
