$20/$10 for members

LOCATION: The Vista Theater, 4473 Sunset Dr., 90027. NOTE: This show does not take place at the Silent Movie Theater location.

Join Dan Harmon, the “Harmontown” cast, plus special guest Kumail Nanjiani for a podcast taping along with our opening night screening!

Best known to the masses as the man fired from his own network sitcom Community — but known to podcast fans as the center of gravity on the long-running, freeform joint “Harmontown” — Dan Harmon trawls his deepest depths of shame and self-doubt for humor and humanity on this rollicking party bus full of genuinely heartwarming moments.  This seriously funny road trip doc follows the descent and uneasy redemption of genius/vessel-of-god Harmon (both his own ironic phrases) on tour with girlfriend Erin and podcast co-stars Jeff and Spencer, as they record their show to packed houses across the country, and as they hang with friends like Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman and Jack Black along the way.  Helmed by Neil Berkeley (director of the Wayne White doc Beauty Is Embarrassing), Harmontown earns every deliciously gooey minute of moonshine-fueled, intimate fun.   And, as it offers up a touching celebration of the universal need to connect and create happiness, Harmontown reveals what it truly means to be a Harmenian: “a nerd who’s filled with love.”

Samurai Cop (encore screening!)

samuraicop_website
10/3 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Even in an era when action sludge was more common than shoulder pads or skinny ties, 1989’s Samurai Cop stood out as a true anomaly. Perhaps living legend Joe Bob Briggs summed it up best: a “recently unearthed, soon-to-be-classic kung-fu action-comedy skin flick with gratuitous gore elements.” That’s a good start, and yet there’s so much more. Ex-Stallone bodyguard Matt Hannon stars as Joe Marshall, a rock of a man who will do literally whatever it takes to punish the guilty — even if that means taking dozens of innocent lives in the process. Teamed up with truly hilarious sidekick Frank (whose African-American-ness and genitals are mentioned waaaay more than once), Joe embarks on an adventure so psychedelically violent and sex-tastic, there’s a chance Hunter S. Thomson will return from his “space ashes” just to drool along with us. Oh, and fear not, Robert Z’Dar fans, you’ll see plenty of the chin that made the Z famous, in rare bearded form.
Dir. Amir Shervan, 1991, digital presentation, 96 min.

THE SILENT TREATMENT: Lon Chaney in "West of Zanzibar" + "The Unknown"

CO-PRESENTED BY WARNER ARCHIVE

Through unparalleled makeup craftsmanship, physical endurance and skilled pantomime, Lon Chaney, Sr. shocked silent audiences with an endless variety of transformations that earned him the nickname “The Man of 1,000 Faces.” Through his sensitivity, Chaney lent his monsters what Eugene O’Neill called “the transfiguring nobility of tragedy [in] seemingly the most ignoble, debased lives.” Lon met his artistic match in filmmaker Tod Browning, the vibrant artist behind such talkie gems as Freaks and 1931’s Lugosi-laden Dracula, who would collaborate with the fearless Chaney for a total of 10 incredible features. This afternoon’s double bill represents the apex of their relationship, and two of the most bizarre silent features ever filmed: West of Zanzibar, a wild-spirited, deliciously convoluted jungle revenge picture featuring Chaney as a man with no legs and a twenty-year score to settle — and The Unknown, all about unrequited love, circus freaks, blackmail, amputation and a phobia about being touched by others’ hands (plus, it’s co-starring Joan Crawford!)
West of Zanzibar Dir. Tod Browning, 1928, 35mm, 65 min.

“You’ll hear names like Hitchcock and DePalma thrown around in discussions about Open Windows. Make no mistake; while such influences may be evident, what you’re left with after they’re processed through the wit and insanity of the man’s brain makes Open Windows pure Vigalondo.” — Brian Kelley, Fantastic Fest

Nacho Vigolondo & Sasha Grey in person, plus Elijah Wood via Skype! Oscar-nominated writer/director Nacho Vigalondo has quickly blossomed one of our favorite devious moviemaking minds. From his award-winning shorts to Timecrimes, to Extraterrestrial and beyond, his consistent knack for inventive plot devices that transform the mundane into the extraordinary ends up blindsiding his characters into the most thrilling of circumstances. To that effect, Open Windows — his most ambitious project yet — stars Sasha Grey and Elijah Wood as a film star and her ultimate fan, in a completely unique and endlessly creative thriller for our age that takes place entirely on a single computer desktop. After the break, we’ll dive into Drafthouse Films’ newly-released special Confetti of the Mind, a tour of Nacho’s most brilliant shorts collected for the first time, and personally curated by Nacho and his longtime collaborator Nahikari Ipina. Confetti is not optional.
Open Windows Dir. Nacho Vigalondo, 2014, DCP, 100 min.

GREG PROOPS FILM CLUB: I Married A Witch

Greg Proops (one of the most mind-warpingly quick-draw improv comics on earth) records his monthly Film Club podcast live — and then it’s time for and then it’s time for a most whimsical Forties fantasy romance. Greg sez: “Long-haired vixen Veronica Lake is burned at the stake for being a Witch in colonial Salem. She puts a curse on her accuser, the staunch bummer Puritan Jonathan Wooley (Fredric March), forever making his male descendants marrying the wrong woman — until lightning hits the tree she and her alcoholic Warlock Dad are buried under. After that, the witches are free to make the curse happen in person. Directed by French master Rene Clair, this delightfully sexy romp was ripped off for the Bewitched TV show. Difference is, this movie is hilarious and filled with surprises. This Halloween, let’s laugh instead of wallowing in pain. Save that for when you get back in your car to drive home through Hollywood.”
Dir. Rene Clair, 1942, digital presentation, 77 min.

Q: Does Greg talk over the movies, like the Benson Interruption?
A: No. It is a recording of his podcast, followed by a screening of the film.

MEMBERS-ONLY: Whiplash (sneak preview, star Miles Teller & filmmaker Damien Chazelle in person!)

whiplash_website2
10/8 - 8PM
free for members +1 (first come, first served)

Filmmaker Damien Chazelle didn’t just leap, but exploded onto our collective Cinefamily consciousness with this debut feature — one which, ever since we caught it on opening night of Sundance 2014, we’ve lovingly referred to as “Full Metal Jazz Band.” With a twin set of provocative, boiling-point performances from Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) and J.K. Simmons (Oz), Whiplash thrills every second of the way.

“Damien Chazelle’s stellar career-starter…demolishes the cliches of the musical-prodigy genre, investing the traditionally polite stages and rehearsal studios of a topnotch conservatory with all the psychological intensity of a battlefield or sports arena. Chazelle proves an exceptional builder of scenes, crafting loaded, need-to-succeed moments that grab our attention and hold it tight, thanks largely to co-star J.K. Simmons as the school’s most intimidating instructor. The energy also comes through in Miles Teller’s hyper-physical performance — yet another radical departure for an actor who’s been out-transforming nearly everyone in his generation.” — Peter DeBruge, Variety
Dir. Damien Chazelle, 2014, DCP, 106 min.

DEAD SNOW – 7:30pm
What’s better than a zombie movie? How about a tank-driving, gun-toting Swastika-emblazoned Fascist bastard of a zombie movie?! Indie horror filmmaking of the early day Raimi/Craven kind is alive and well in Norway; with 2009’s Dead Snow, Tommy Wirkola (who would later go on to helm the Hollywood flick Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters) adds his icy touch to the kind of low-budget, high-concept gore which those celebrated forefathers made great. Utilizing all the classic set pieces — the remote cabin, a group of rowdy, randy students, the stranger at the door, a white-out blizzard which makes escape impossible — Wirkola adds high speed humor and bucket loads of blood to come up with a fresh powder take on the walking-dead genre.
Dir. Tommy Wirkola, 2009, 35mm, 91 min.

DEAD SNOW 2: RED VS. DEAD – approx. 9:15pm
Director Tommy Wirkola, plus cast members Martin Starr & Jocelyn DeBoer in person! Picking up just a few moments after the first film left off, the brand-new Red vs. Dead offers a dizzy second round of fascist flesh feasters and Nordic black humor. Once again, the stark winter wonderland is stained crimson with the blood of innocents, as Colonel Herzog and his enraged battalion of decomposing National Socialists descend to enact ultra-violent revenge. With his fighting arm amputated and mysteriously replaced with a zombie-fied limb, Dead Snow’s protag Martin elicits the help of a motley group of American zombie film nerds (including our favorite Freaks and Geeks/Silicon Valley uber-dork Martin Starr) to take on the hordes of undead. Just plain good, goofy, gory fun!

Chantal Akerman's "One Day Pina Asked..." (10/11)

Repères sur la modern dance Pina Bausch : Un jour Pina a demandé
10/11 - 1PM
$12/free for members

“Astonishing! Using lengthy takes and exacting compositions (two of her stylistic signatures), [Akerman] encourages us to reflect on how the dancers’ bodies give form to Bausch’s ideas. — Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader

An encounter between two of the most remarkable female artists of the 20th century, One Day Pina Asked… is a look by Chantal Akerman (Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles) at the work of choreographer Pina Bausch and her Wuppertal, Germany-based dance company. “This film is more than a documentary on Pina Bausch,” a narrator announces at the outset, “it is a journey through her world, through her unwavering quest for love.” Capturing the company’s striking dances and elaborate stagings (a mixture of movement, monologue and narrative elements that drew upon explosive, often painful emotions) over a five-week European tour, Akerman takes us inside their process. The dancers describe the development of various dances, and the way that Bausch calls upon them to supply autobiographical details around which the performances were frequently built. Akerman also shows us excerpts from performances of Bausch dances, including Komm Tanz Mit Mir (Come Dance with Me) (1977), Nelken (Carnations) (1982), Walzer (1982), and 1980 (1980), all recorded with Akerman’s singular visual touch. Plus, short subject before the feature TBA!

HEAVY MIDNITES' "THE WITCHING HOUR": The Witches

THE WITCHES (BR1990) ANGELICA HUSTON
10/11 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

“Deliciously cruel to children; Roeg remains true to [Roald] Dahl’s underlying sense of real horror.” – Empire Magazine

In what may be the strangest family flick collaboration on record, British auteur Nicolas Roeg (Don’t Look Now, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Bad Timing) teamed in the late-’80s with Jim Henson to adapt a book by Willy Wonka creator Roald Dahl. The result: a eccentric masterwork that’s been both delighting and destroying kids of all ages for more than twenty years — a darkly comedic and, frankly, kinda disturbing fairy tale that Dahl himself declared “utterly appalling; I want it known I wouldn’t allow a child to see it!” It’s pure kindertrauma, as a coven of witches tries to rid Britain of youngsters by turning them into teeny-tiny, fuzzy four-legged mice. And, this fantastical nightmare fuel is centered around a deliriously wicked, over-the-top turn from Angelica Huston and imaginative mouse-a-tronic puppetry from Henson’s creature shop. Fiendishly funny and devilishly magical entertainment perfect for The Witching Hour.

An encounter between two of the most remarkable female artists of the 20th century, One Day Pina Asked… is a look by Chantal Akerman (Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles) at the work of choreographer Pina Bausch and her Wuppertal, Germany-based dance company. “This film is more than a documentary on Pina Bausch,” a narrator announces at the outset, “it is a journey through her world, through her unwavering quest for love.” Capturing the company’s striking dances and elaborate stagings (a mixture of movement, monologue and narrative elements that drew upon explosive, often painful emotions) over a five-week European tour, Akerman takes us inside their process. The dancers describe the development of various dances, and the way that Bausch calls upon them to supply autobiographical details around which the performances were frequently built. Akerman also shows us excerpts from performances of Bausch dances, including Komm Tanz Mit Mir (Come Dance with Me) (1977), Nelken (Carnations) (1982), Walzer (1982), and 1980 (1980), all recorded with Akerman’s singular visual touch. Plus, short subject before the feature TBA!

“Perverse, uncensored, deeply nerdy and spit-take hilarious.” — Rolling Stone

“A portrait of a legitimately fascinating unlikely superstar, the film really works.” — Indiewire

Best known to the masses as the man fired from his own network sitcom Community — but known to podcast fans as the center of gravity on the long-running, freeform joint “Harmontown” — Dan Harmon trawls his deepest depths of shame and self-doubt for humor and humanity on this rollicking party bus full of genuinely heartwarming moments. This seriously funny road trip doc follows the descent and uneasy redemption of genius/vessel-of-god Harmon (both his own ironic phrases) on tour with girlfriend Erin and podcast co-stars Jeff and Spencer, as they record their show to packed houses across the country, and as they hang with friends like Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman and Jack Black along the way. Helmed by Neil Berkeley (director of the Wayne White doc Beauty Is Embarrassing), Harmontown earns every deliciously gooey minute of moonshine-fueled, intimate fun. And, as it offers up a touching celebration of the universal need to connect and create happiness, Harmontown reveals what it truly means to be a Harmenian: “a nerd who’s filled with love.”

HEAVY MIDNITES' "THE WITCHING HOUR": Troll

troll_480_309
10/18 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Ten years before J.K. Rowling, Hogwarts and quidditch entered the pop culture lexicon, a very different spellbound boy named Harry Potter faced witches, goblins and other ghoulish delights in the mysterious, magical, mini-obsessed VHS-era brainbomb Troll. When Harry (NeverEnding Story teen heartthrob Noah Hathaway) and his family move into a new apartment complex, something mischievous takes over little sister Wendy. She roars, she bites, tosses people across rooms and even punches dudes in the nuts. And that’s not to mention the mystical fairytale forests that are suddenly popping up everywhere. Packed with wild optical effects, a trunkful of creepy critters from Charles Band’s Empire Pictures warehouse, and an all-star cast from Mars including cult film fave Michael Moriarty, Sonny Bono, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Charlie’s Angels’ Shelley Hack, Troll is a totally awesome good time.

Co-presented by the STANLEY FILM FEST. A 4-day horror celebration at the hotel that inspired The Shining. Come play with us.

After the show, stay for our absinthe bar on the back patio! One of the greatest films in the annals of sci-fi, musically accompanied by the return of one of Cinefamily’s favorite analog synth wizards! A time-honored, pioneering portrait of an Expressionist Tomorrowland, Fritz Lang’s Metropolis had it all (according to its original press release): “8 stars, 25,000 men, 11,000 women, 1,100 bald people, 250 children, 3,500 pairs of special shoes, 50 cars.” What it also contained was a brilliant distillation of the Germany’s unconscious Zeitgeist energies, as that country lurched toward fascism in the Thirties — not to mention a peerless batch of indelible images. As we celebrate Metropolis as yesterday’s fantasy of what tomorrow could be, we welcome Stones Throw recording artist Chrome Canyon as the temporal technician for the job. The solo project of New York artist Morgan Z (who touched down upon Angeleno soil last year to permanently reside alongside us), Chrome Canyon creates synth sounds that move between eras past and ages imagined — an aural palate that’s a whizz-bang accompaniment for Fritz Lang’s classic version of an alternate now.

HEAVY MIDNITES' "THE WITCHING HOUR": Teen Witch

Being a teen girl is hard. You’ve got to deal with boys, boobs, bratty brothers and Brad, the hunky football star who doesn’t even know you’re alive. Uggghhh! But when you find out on your 16th birthday that you’re descended from Salem witches, life is, like, totally going to get complicated. Sure, Teen Witch is a sweet-natured coming-of-age fairy tale — but it’s also a top-tier rager: a mind-blowing non-stop fun machine dealing with the tough topics of today (rap battles, magical ability), a cotton-candy comedy packed with teased-out neon fashion, and a you’ll-never-get-it-out-of-your-head soundtrack of original songs (seriously, you’re gonna have to dig deep to Top That.) Plus, the cast’s got supernatural appeal: the sexy duo of Robyn Lively and Dan Gauthier, Near Dark’s Joshua John Miller and Poltergeist’s Zelda Rubinstein, just to get started. Grab your wand and head to Cinefamily to fall under the Teen Witch spell all over again!

The Tingler (10/26)

10/26 - 7:30PM
$12/free for members

Our annual month-long horror celebration concludes with the spine-tingling horror of The Tingler, Castle’s weirdo masterpiece of gimmickry about a lobster-shaped monster that feeds on terror within the human body. Aside from being the first film to use LSD as a plot device, the original theatrical run was presented in “Percepto,” whereby theater patrons were administered buzzer shocks in their seats, to simulate the monster’s attack. The result, of course, was giddy insanity, as star Vincent Price’s voice urges patrons to “scream for your lives!” Best of all, The Tingler features a major subplot based on the original Silent Movie Theatre itself and its creators, the Hamptons. Feel a tingle up your spine as you watch these scenes set in the very location where you are sitting — and maybe a tingle on your tuchas when we shock you Castle-style with real wired seats!

Pulp: a Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets (11/26)

pulp3_480_309
11/26 - 7:30PM
$12/free for members

Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of Sheffield, their hometown. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival)
