To celebrate the 100th anniversary of cinema in 1995, the Vatican created a list of 45 recommended movies divided into such categories as religion, values and art. The American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood will be presenting five movies from the list Easter weekend beginning April 18 with Akira Kurosawa's 1975 Oscar-winner "Dersu Uzala" and Ingmar Bergman's stunning 1957 allegory "The Seventh Seal." Orson Welles' 1941 debut feature, "Citizen Kane," and John Ford's influential 1939 western, "Stagecoach," screen April 19. Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent masterpiece "The Passion of Joan of Arc" concludes the series on Sunday with live music accompaniment.
