THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND (1968 - 2018 / 35mm Print)

Mon Jan 21st 4:30pm & 9:00pm / Metrograph, New York City

Fifty years after he rolled cameras on his rather meta final film, Director Orson Welles’s final morion picture was completed by his collaborators. A very personal project and what is seen as autobiographical, it tells the story of a maverick director who returns to Hollywood to finish his comeback movie after years of exile in Europe,

FATAL ATTRACTION (1987 / 35mm Print)

Tues Jan 22nd 7:30pm / Dryden Theatre, Rochester NY

Nominated for six Oscar’s, Micheal Douglas and Glenn Close star in this thriller of a married man's one-night stand that comes back to haunt him when that lover begins to stalk him and his family. Close’s performance is brilliant, but she has since disparaged the role as it doesn’t offer context to her character’s mental illness. Close started a foundation to bring awareness to mental health.

BOB AND CAROL AND TED AND ALICE (1969 / DCP)

Tues Jan 22nd 2:50pm / Film Forum, New York City

What does Robert Culp do when, back from an affair himself, he finds another man in bed with wife Natalie Wood? Offer a friendly drink, of course. Bitchy Dyan Cannon and uptight Elliott Gould complete the bed-sharing foursome in a smash hit that once epitomized the “New Permissiveness.

SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER & UNCUT (1999 / DCP)

Tues Jan 22nd 10pm / Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, Austin TX

Movie Party! Can you believe it’s twenty years old?! The Alamo is throwing a raucous movie party around this hilarious and wonderfully rude big screen outing of the cut-out cartoon characters where you can wave Canadian flags while you ‘blame Canada’ , blow bubbles to fill the auditorium and much more. Interesting to note that Paramount wanted Trey Parker and Matt Stone to turn in a PG film. They told them to sod off and went for the R rating. Lucky us!

JU-ON: THE GRUDGE (2002 / 35mm Print)

Tues Jan 22nd 9:30pm / Alamo Drafthouse, New York City

$10 Tickets! Remember the scary ghost kid phase in Asian Cinema? It worked because they just knew how to make things ‘creepy via a less is more approach. American studios couldn’t figure that out of course, making for some questionable attempts at remakes of The Ring’s sequels, Dark Water, One Missed Call, etc. Thankfully we can still revisit the original and the best, and NYC’s Alamo is digging out a 35mm Print of this utterly terrifying original, where a social worker is terrorized by a shapeless void in an upstairs hallway.

NETWORK (1976 / DCP)

Wed Jan 23rd (also screens Thurs Jan 24th) 2:30pm, 5:30pm, 8pm/ Frida Cinema, Santa Ana CA

Directed by Sidney Lumet, Network is one of the greatest films of the 1970s. A television network cynically exploits the wild ravings of ex-TV anchor Howard Beale (Peter Finch, winner of the Academy Award’s only posthumous Best Actor Oscar) as he takes to the air exposing revelations about the media – chiefly, the dangers of corporations taking control of the news. As Beale’s platform grows, he begins to challenge forces that might be too much even for him to take on. Timely, and as relevant today as it was upon release.

THURSDAY JANUARY 24th

OFFICE SPACE (1999 / DCP)

Thurs Jan 24th 8pm / Castro Theatre, San Francisco CA

20th Anniversary Special - writer/director Mike Judge and cast including Diedrich Bader ("Lawrence"), David Herman (“Michael Bolton”) and more in person for Q&A. An assuming parody of, and all too real look into, the banality and crushing inhumanity of the 9 to 5 office job that gained a growing cult following, becoming one of the 90s most memorable movies. Still spawning meme’s a-plenty today.

THE WITCHES (1990 / 35mm Print)

Thurs Jan 24th 7:30pm / Texas Theatre, Dallas TX

Nicolas Roeg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s wicked fantasy story is made all the more memorable thanks to Angelica Houston’s icy performance, and the marvelous puppetry and creature creations from Jim Henson’s company, marking the final film he worked on before his untimely death in 1990.

The-Company-of-Wolves.jpg

THE COMPANY OF WOLVES (1984 / 35mm Print) + GINGER SNAPS (2000 / DCP)

Thurs Jan 24th 7pm / Brattle Theatre, Cambridge MA

Another wicked wolf themed Double Feature from the filks at The Brattle! Neil Jordan’s Company Of Wolves reimagines Little Red Riding Hood as a werewolf /coming-of-age tale using a story-within-a-story structure. The second feature is the highly underrated cult film effectively connecting puberty with lycanthropy that sees a high school girls’ first period attracting a lurking monster, granting her a few more changes than she originally expected.

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL (1979 / DCP)

Thurs Jan 24th 9:15pm / Roxie Cinema, San Francisco CA

The Ramones are made honorary school students and teachers everywhere are having nervous breakdowns! Sounds like a recipe for a great cult film and that’s what you get in this romp that sees a high school student determined to meet her favorite band after a nasty high school principal takes away her Ramones tickets.

Suspiria lead edit.jpg

SUSPIRIA (1977 / DCP) + CARRIE (1976 / DCP)

Thurs Jan 24th 7:30pm / Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood CA

DARIO ARGENTO / BRIAN DE PALMA DOUBLE FEATURE. Two masters of the psychological thriller and nightmarish screen visions go back to back in a Double Feature of two of their (arguably) best works. The twisted, disorientating world of Suspiria makes way for the high school prom slaughterhouse that would define the closing moments of Carrie.
