TERMORS (1991 / DCP)

Fri Jan 18th 2pm, 4pm, 6pm & 8pm / The Frida Cinema, Santa Ana CA

Would you have guessed that this is one of the longest ongoing movie franchises out there? Varying in quality (it’s been straight to video fare since part 2), the original TREMORS is a simple yet sharp thriller with just the right amount of humor and cleverness in execution that it satisfies like a home cooked meal. Concerning a small town in the middle of nowhere USA, two friends decide to hit the road, but not before the discovery of right some 30 foot long man eating worms determined to suck their human prey underground! It’s a perfect 50s monster movie salute. Oh, and you get some Kevin Bacon too.

LADY AND THE TRAMP (1953 / 35mm Print)

Sat Jan 19th 12:40pm / Prince Charles Cinema, London UK

Disney animated classics are a rarity in 35mm, and if one pops up, you owe it to yourself to see it. There’s something about the era of paint on 2D animation cels, especially in the Technicolor era, that translates so beautifully to 35mm in a way that digital renders as too clinically pristine. This Saturday, London’s Prince Charles Cinema has their hands on the romantic tale of Lady And The Tramp. No details as yet if there’s an interactive spaghetti sharing moment at this screening. Hopefully not!

CAMERAMAN2050.jpg

BUSTER KEATON’S ‘THE CAMERAMAN’ (1928 / 35mm Print)

Sun Jan 20th 12pm / Loft Cinema, Tuscon AZ

Keaton was the absolute master of physical comedy that is still yet to be bested today due in part his deadpan delivery, but also the need to capture all timing in camera. In The Cameraman finds our hapless hero falling for a beautiful woman working at MGM, and decides to woo her by becoming a camera operator. Naturally he becomes a magnet for disaster. Screens with Keaton short ‘ONE WEEK’.

AMERICAN GRAFFITI (1973 / 35mm Print)

Sun Jan 20th 3pm / Film Forum, New York City

Still one of the new young upstarts in Hollywood, George Lucas was coming off the back of his divisive yet stunning debut feature THX 1138.

SHOGUN ASSASSIN (1980 / 35mm Print)

Sun Jan 20th 7pm / Hollywood Theatre, Portland OR

It could be one of the most iconic pieces of Samurai cinema ever made. Based on the brilliant manga ‘Lone Wolf and Cub’, the lone warrior takes ‘the road to hell’ with his infant son on a quest of vengeance for the honor of his murdered wife. More blood spraying than you can probably handle. Unmissable and a rare treat to see in 35mm.

THE BUGS BUNNY / ROAD RUNNER MOVIE (1979 / DCP) + SPACE JAM (1996 / DCP)

Sun Jan 20th 2pm / Astor Theatre, Melbourne Australia

Melbourne’s beloved Astor dishes out a giant toon Double Feature for the weekend. A kind of ‘greatest hits’, this Loony Tunes feature assembles a collection of the greatest animated shorts of the era, strung together by master of ceremonies Bugs Bunny himself. Following that up is the 1996 pairing of Bugs and the gang with basketball legend Michael Jordan. Oddly enough, it wasn’t the most well received feature upon release, but time hasn’t stopped it from becoming a much loved piece of 90s nostalgia in recent years, gaining a very enthusiastic cult following, spawning an upcoming remake.

MIDNIGHT MOVIES

ENTER THE DRAGON (1973 / 35mm Print)

Fri Jan 18h / Coolidge Corner, Brookline MA

The film that was to launch Bruce Lee in the west did just that, but sadly also marked the tragic and too-soon passing of the charismatic martial artist turned actor. An absolutley lush Cinemascope frame is complimented by Lalo Schifrin’s jazzy score. Highly recommended on the big screen for the full widescreen frame, given streaming platforms like Netflix have still yet to work out how to deliver these aspect ratios, resulting in a cropped image. Sacrilege!

All screening Fri, Sat and Sun / IFC Center, New York City

The IFC Center is NYC’s original home of midnight movies and their midnight trifecta this week includes the big screen prequel to TWIN PEAKS that holds more in common with the show’s recent third season than the actual original series itself.

THE SIXTH SENSE (1999 / 35mm Print)

Fri Jan 18th & Sat Jan 19th / Nitehawk Cinema, Brooklyn NY

Hey guess what? THE SIXTH SENSE is turning twenty. Which means you’re pretty old now! But for real, this cold creepy was a true shocker when released, with solid performances from Bruce Willis, Toni Collette and of course, Hayley Joel Osmont, and THAT ending. Keep an eye out for a young Mischa Barton vomiting cereal, and a very skinny former New Kid on The Block Donnie Wahlberg. (Williamsburg location only)

JACKIE BROWN (1997 / 35mm Print)

Fri Jan 18th / New Beverly Cinema, Los Angeles CA

QUENTIN TARANTINO’S PERSONAL 35MM PRINT! Makes sense; watching Tarantino’s own, personal 35mm print of his blaxploitation era homage, in the movie theatre he owns. Sounds good to us. His follow up to PULP FICTION follows a different rhythm to the aforementioned classic, and sports a great cast including Pam Grier, Samuel L Jackson, Robert De Niro, Micheal Keaton, Bridget Fonda, and of course, Robert Forster.

THE ROOM (2003 / 35mm Print)

Fri Jan 18th / Music Box Theatre, Chicago IL

Subject of the recent THE DISASTER ARTIST, this shockingly bad melodrama from the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau has become this generation defining midnight cult movie. Come see what all the fuss is about, and admire the absolute passion Wiseau has for this sinking ship of a film. Don’t forget; these midnight sessions can get pretty raucous!
