The Nitrate Picture Show, put on by New York’s George Eastman Museum, comes West with a special series co-presented by the American Cinematheque. The weekend event kicks off with a rare screening of Powell & Pressburger’s Gone to Earth, a richly colored 1950 drama starring Jennifer Jones. The intensity of the hues is amplified by the ultra-rare nitrate print, which shimmers like no acetate-based film stock can. The flammable nitrate material will be handled by certified experts under fireproof conditions. The series continues with a Hitchcock double feature on Saturday and a film noir pairing on Sunday.

Egyptian Theatre, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood; Fri., Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m.; $15. (323) 466-3456,
