Look up in the sky! It’s a bird? it’s a plane? NO! It’s this month’s crime fighting, justice preserving, gadget wielding Cartoon extravaganza! From heroes to mutants, and villains both sympathetic and sociopathic, cartoon caped crusaders have been part of our lives long before Christian Bale made Batman into nothing more than a voice, or Marvel mad a whole universe of movies. Underdogs and super rabbits, powdered toast men and jokers, cartoon superheroes and villains, even before the comics themselves, have been how we learned about right and wrong, bravery and cowardice and how to rock tights and still look good. Saturday morning cartoons have always had superheroes at their core, and we are very proud to finally give them their time in the bat-signal spotlight. So join the Cinefamily and Animation Breakdown for a heroic way to get your Saturday going. We will be showing a great mix ranging from the colorful madness of Ralph Bakshi’s Mighty Mouse to the gothic awesomeness of Batman the Animated Series to the irreverent insanity of Amy Poehler’s The Mighty B.

Snacks, as well as our all you can eat cereal bar (with the month’s special cereal mix) will be provided – and all kids under 14 get in for free! See you Saturday and don’t forget to bring your most heroic pajamas.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl (Free Sneak Peek!)

diaryofateenagegirl_480_309
8/1 - 2PM
Free (first-come, first-serve)

Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, The Diary of a Teenage Girl recounts the coming-of-age adventures of Minnie Goetze, a San Francisco teenager growing up in the counterculture haze of the 1970s. Lonely and artistic, Minnie chronicles her trials through expressive drawings and painfully honest missives confided to a tape recorder. One fateful evening alone with her mother’s boyfriend, Minnie is confronted with her burgeoning sexuality for the first time, and suddenly this precocious teen is in way over her head. In an astonishing feature debut, writer/director Marielle Heller renders a hybrid of live-action and animation, offering a subtle, detailed window into the psyche of a bright, young woman. Brimming with wit and intelligence, and spurred by exquisite performances from Alexander Skarsgård, Kristen Wiig, and a star-making turn by Bel Powley as Minnie, The Diary of a Teenage Girl captures the anxiety, passion, and wonder of adolescence. —Sundance Film Festival

Pulp My Daisy: Jazz, Noir & Beatniks - Elevator to the Gallows

elevator_480_309
8/1 - 5:15PM
$12/free for members

co-presented by

If there is an Ur-moment for the meeting of movies and jazz, Elevator to the Gallows is it. Director Louis Malle’s rookie feature is a super stylish crime thriller, scored by Miles Davis, about illicit lovers Florence and Julien whose plans to be together are interrupted by a fatal error and a couple of ill-placed blousons noirs—idiotic teens in black leather. The latter spend the night in the swankiest motel you’ll ever see, while Julien is locked in an elevator and Florence, played by the luminous Jeanne Moreau, wanders the streets of Paris in a daze. Moreau is more beautiful the more melancholy she becomes—and no wonder: Henri Decai, high priest of the French New Wave, was cinematographer, and Miles’s improvised score made use of the modal experiments that would be central to Kind of Blue and altar the course of music history. Do not miss Elevator.

Dir. Louis Malle, 1958, 35mm, 91 min.

The Films of Roy Andersson: Songs from the Second Floor

songs_480_309
8/1 - 7:45PM
$12/free for members

In a 180º stylistic twist, Swedish auteur Roy Andersson reinvented himself and built the bizarre and enchanting world of Songs From the Second Floor—the first entry in his “living trilogy”—completely from scratch. Shot entirely on sound stages over four years, with weeks spent shooting single scenes, the film is visually astonishing, like being thrown into an elaborately contrived Scandinavian Twilight Zone. Andersson’s darkly comic vignettes look like massive dioramas or tableau vivants run amok, loosely conjoined by the poetry of César Vallejo and a hapless protagonist named Kalle, who trudges through the film’s unbelievable and hyperreal universe—shot in long, magnificent takes with immense depth of field—like a cartoon come to life, or a SIM avatar; uncannily like a person, yet not quite recognizable as one. This world, albeit a grim one, is spectacular to behold; with choreography that echoes Tati, nods to the existentialist absurdity of Beckett, and a look entirely its own.

The second installment in Roy Andersson’s “living trilogy” inhabits the same creepily beautiful milieu as its predecessor, Songs from the Second Floor. Zombie-like characters lumber through another batch of grim and risible vignettes, like a poem cycle starring a collection of droopy clowns. Despite the characters’ existential dread, the film is brisk and silly—like a mash-up of Buster Keaton and Kafka—with a particularly spirited soundscape. Cartoonishly oversized trumpets and drums, the sounds of the Swedish city, ceremonial refrains, a dirge, the strumming of a rock guitarist—and most importantly, the weary characters’ whiny soliloquies—form a veritable symphony, buoying along mundane and miserable lives with irreverent pomp. Aided by this propulsive musicality, Andersson’s quippy critiques of capitalism and indulgences in paranoia move from funerals to nightmarish trials, stunningly presented with his trademark static shots of his hand-built alternate reality.

Feather your hair and grab your short shorts; we’re headed back to Camp Firewood with the endlessly quotable, obsessively rewatchable cult comedy that still has us giggling with glee and celebrating high times, hard bodies and soft rock. A pitch-perfect spoof and loving tribute to the classic teen sex romps of the ‘80s, Wet Hot American Summer gloriously captures the hormone-soaked hilarity of youth while totally nailing the period details of our nation’s last great era. Bursting from the inventive minds of David Wain and Michael Showalter (both from MTV’s The State), the film features a lightning-in-a-bottle ensemble cast of up-and-comers including Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and many more (including Heavy Midnites hero Janeane Garofalo!), leaving an indelible mark on a generation of emerging comedians. So revisit the French kissing, sweater-fondling, level-5-charm-spell spectacular before hitting your bunk with the new Netflix show Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp!

callmelucky_480_309
8/3 - 7:30PM
$14/free for members

Call Me Lucky is the inspiring, triumphant and wickedly funny portrait of one of comedy’s most enigmatic and important figures: Barry Crimmins. The beer-swilling, politically outspoken and whip-smart comic whose efforts in the 70s and 80s fostered the talents of the next generation of standup comedians. But beneath Crimmins’ gruff, hard-drinking, curmudgeonly persona lay an undercurrent of rage stemming from his long-suppressed and horrific abuse as a child – a rage that eventually found its way out of the comedy clubs and television shows and into the political arena. Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, Call Me Lucky bravely tells Crimmins’ incredible story of transformation from a rage-fueled funnyman into an acclaimed proponent of justice who personified the healing power of comedy.

The most distinctive Swedish filmmaker since Ingmar Bergman, Roy Andersson concludes the trilogy he began with the acclaimed Songs from the Second Floor and You, the Living with this astonishing mixture of the absurd, the hilarious, the shocking, and the horrifying. Presented as a series of darkly comic vignettes, Pigeon shifts between two loose narrative strands: in one, two hapless novelty salesmen wander around town trying to sell their inventory of vampire fangs and rubber masks; in the other, Charles XII, Sweden’s most bellicose king, reappears in modern times to carry on his series of disastrous defeats. Shifting between nightmare, fantasy, reverie, and even an impromptu musical number, Pigeon is a dazzling, provocative, and very disturbing critique of our times. —TIFF

Lost & Found Film Club - Ornette: Made in America

unnamed (1)
8/5 - 10:30PM
$12/free for members

In June, we lost perhaps our greatest living jazz musician in Ornette Coleman, whose records The Shape of Jazz to Come and Free Jazz forever altered the musical landscape. Thankfully, Ornette’s unique perspectives on modern music, the universe, and even Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes were captured by legendary experimental filmmaker & documentarian Shirley Clarke (The Connection, Portrait of Jason). Made In America combines rare 60’s footage with 80′s interviews, performances, and video effects for an idiosyncratic multimedia exploration as refreshingly unconventional as Ornette’s music. Featuring appearances by William S. Burroughs and Don Cherry along with revealing footage of Ornette and his son Denardo collaborating with an orchestra for Skies of America, Clarke’s camera captures a personal glimpse into the world of an oft-misunderstood genius well-known for his shyness. Originally shot on 16mm, this rambunctious rhapsody (Clarke’s final work) has been lovingly restored and blown up to 35mm for the ultimate viewing experience, a fitting tribute to Ornette’s lasting legacy.

“The place to go to unlock some of the most precious secrets of Ornette.” – Village Voice

“A free-form fantasia… The film itself is a species of jazz. It’s offbeat without missing the beat.” – CS Monitor

“It’s like organized disorganization, or playing wrong right. And it gets to you emotionally.” – Mingus

In the 90s he resurfaced as a cult figure with the tiki/lounge music aficionados and ended up immortalized in the film Ed Wood. Often pegged as a “man of mystery,” Korla lived up to that billing when he took an amazing secret with him to his grave in 1998—one that is finally revealed in Korla.

In the light of day she is stalked, attacked by half-naked figures that none of her friends can see. These apparitions are driven by a single desire: to see her dead. Director Mitchell handles teenage sexuality in a non-exploitative and sensitive manner, allowing his characters to make sympathetic choices, yet maintains a chilling atmosphere of dread and suspense amidst the decaying suburbs of Detroit, creating a relentless and deeply creepy monster chase that culminates in a fresh and freaky final showdown.” — Toronto Int’l Film Festival

“In the real world, you have to be realistic. You have to make compromises.” Such is spoken to Mickey One, a rising young nightclub comedian running from the mob for reasons he’s never told. This simple premise is the launchpad for Warren Beatty and Arthur Penn’s complex, scabrous metaphor for trying to survive in the film industry—based, not on your talent or what your ambitions can offer, but how well you bend and obey the powers that be. Given dreamlike structure by avant garde editor Aram Avakian (future director of END OF THE ROAD) and a free-wheeling Eddie Sauter jazz score (with sax improvs by Stan Getz), MICKEY ONE is at once a celebration of the possibilities offered American mainstream cinema by the new British film and French New Wave—it appears a cross between Richard Lester’s THE RUNNING, JUMPING AND STANDING FILM and Welles’ THE TRIAL while predicting films like Roeg and Cammell’s similar PERFORMANCE.

Join us for a great, heartwarming night, with a screening of the recent Swedish coming-of-age smash about the youngest of punks in ‘80s Stockholm, followed by a live performance from some of the Rock ‘N Roll Camp For Girls L.A.’s latest young students.

The folks from our local branch of the Camp have long been a supportive presence at our annual Don’t Knock The Rock fest — and when the highly crowd-pleasing We Are The Best came along, with its tween punk girls and infectiously fun vibe, we knew we had a perfect pairing. Filmmaker Lukas Moodysson has crafted what might be the best look into middle school-dom in recent memory, perfectly capturing how 13-year-old outcast girls would react to indifferent parents, sleepy snow-covered towns offering little to do, alcohol, parties, forming a band with no previous experience, and how to deal with each other when boys get thrown into the mix. Best of all, We Are The Best never panders to either punk or femme stereotypes, instead giving us one of the strongest groups of teenage characters since John Hughes’ heyday.

Based on Charles Busch’s hilarious long-running stage play, Psycho Beach Party is a wickedly funny genre mashup, turning high camp into high art with a double entendre-loaded pop culture stew of Frankie & Annette beach antics, Douglas Sirk melodrama and ‘80s slasher carnage. Chicklet (Can’t Hardly Wait’s Lauren Ambrose), a wannabe surf-girl with a split personality, becomes the primary suspect after a string of humorously gruesome Malibu murders terrifies the teen set. When the clues take her seaside, the fun and suspense really begin. Featuring a young, bikini-clad Amy Adams, Dharma & Greg’s Thomas Gibson as a burnt-out guru, Buffy’s Nicholas Brendon as a sexy surfboy and playwright/drag legend Busch in a juicy role as the fabulously stylish homicide detective.

Michael Des Barres may be the most famous person you’ve never heard of. From a student in Sidney Poitier’s class in To Sir, With Love to frontman at Live Aid, from Led Zeppelin’s darling to MacGyver’s nemesis, from The Rockford Files to Seinfeld, Michael has found a way to reinvent himself, era after era, though 50+ years in entertainment. As John Taylor of Duran Duran puts it: “He’s like that Woody Allen character, Zelig- he was THERE.” Des Barres’ personal life proves to be as unusual as his career as he recounts his early years being raised in flophouses among English burlesque performers and prostitutes, his sudden transplant to upper crust English boarding schools and the world of sexual abuse that accompanied it, and on through his tumultuous marriage to the “Queen of the Groupies,” Pamela Des Barres, and his struggles with rock and roll excesses of all kinds.?? Using a wealth of archival footage and photos and told through interviews with Des Barres and a wide-ranging cast of witnesses to his fascinating life, including: Gabriel Byrne, Don Johnson, Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), John Taylor (Duran Duran), Allison Anders, Ed Begley Jr., Pamela Des Barres, and many others. J. Elvis Weinstein (Mystery Science theater 3000, Freaks and Geeks) makes his feature directorial debut.

The Films of Roy Andersson: A Swedish Love Story (8/18)

Swedishlove_480_309
8/18 - 7:30PM
$12/free for members

A tale of youthful optimism and hope flourishing in the face of the compromises of adult life and its shipwrecked dreams, Roy Andersson’s debut feature A Swedish Love Story made him a talent to watch in the early 1970s. Following the story of two fifteen-year-olds, A Swedish Love Story presents an all-too-real look at the first time attraction becomes love in a person’s life. With stellar performances, this coming-of-age tale explores how politics and class struggles shape the world around us, and also that universality of love creates its own personal world outside of the pressures of everyday. —Museum of Arts and Design

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: Her Aim Is True (w/ Director Karen Whitehead in person!) + Fortune - A short film by Naomi Yang (w/ live score by Damon & Naomi!)

HERAIMISTRUE_480_309
8/20 - 7:30PM
$16/free for members

This award-winning film by British filmmaker Karen Whitehead, tells Jini Dellaccio’s incredible and unlikely story as the first woman photographer of rock ‘n’ roll in its early years. Snubbing convention, Dellaccio reinvented herself in the mid 1960s as one of the most daring and innovative composers in the field, working with legendary rockers from The Sonics to Neil Young, and even capturing early performances by bands such as The Who and The Rolling Stones. For the first time in 50 years, Dellaccio shares her story and stunning archive, reuniting with musicians and rock photographers for a riveting voyage tracing the roots of her avant-garde artistry and fearless life including her stint playing jazz saxophone with all girl bands in the 1930s and crafting jaw-dropping portfolios for models, that began when she was living in California. With a soundtrack and interviews that capture the vibrant music subculture behind the “Northwest Sound”, the film celebrates a legacy lost and found in an enduring story about love, music, indie spirits and breaking the rules. HER AIM IS TRUE has been executive produced by Eddie Vedder (“Pearl Jam”).

Dir. Karen Whitehead, 2013, 70 min.

A silent film directed by musician Naomi Yang (formerly of Galaxie 500), with original soundtrack by her current band Damon & Naomi.

NORMAN’s father was a society portrait painter. After his father’s death, Norman faces the burden of inheriting his father’s life’s work. He struggles with conflicting feelings about a man who was a gifted artist, but a difficult and unsupportive father. In this emotional journey Norman reconnects with his own artistic nature, something that had not been possible while his father was alive — finally emerging from his father’s shadow, and the shadow of his grief.

Co-edited with acclaimed experimental filmmaker Nathaniel Dorsky.

Dir. Naomi Yang

HEAVY MIDNITES: Over The Edge (Rare 35mm print!)

overtheedge_480_309
8/22 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

They were old enough to know better but too young to care. Over the Edge is a teen rebellion ripper, a must-see coming-of-age masterpiece that rages with pure passion and inevitable doom, perfectly capturing the youthful mix of alienation, anarchy and boredom of the teenage wasteland generation And it feels totally fucking authentic: featuring real kids (including a 14 year old Matt Dillon) giving naturalistic performances, documentary-like cinematography (by future Under Siege director Andrew Davis!) revealing the scorched suburban experience, a true-to-life Charles S. Haas (Gremlins 2) / Tim Hunter (River’s Edge) script and a rockin’ soundtrack that absolutely nails the era. Kurt Cobain once said the “movie pretty much defined my whole personality” and we couldn’t agree more. This is one of the great ones and a film nearly impossible to see in 35mm.

Dir. Jonathan Kaplan, 1979, 35mm, 95 min.

DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK: Danny Says (w/ Dir. Brendan Toller in person!)

DANNYSAYS_480_309
8/27 - 7:30PM
$14/free for members

Danny Says is a documentary on the life and times of Danny Fields. Since 1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and “culture” of the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5 and the Ramones. Danny Says follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to “punk pioneer” and beyond. Danny’s taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, has turned out to have been prescient. Danny Says is a story of marginal turning mainstream, avant garde turning prophetic, as Fields looks to the next generation. Danny Says is lead by Fields voice and is largely crafted from over 250 hours of present-day interviews and items from Danny Fields’ immense archive (thousands of photographs, audio cassettes, ephemera).

Dir. Brendan Toller, 2015, 105 min.

Pulp My Daisy: Jazz, Noir & Beatniks - Blast of Silence

blastofsilence_480_309
8/29 - 2PM
$12/free for members

BLAST OF SILENCE is Allen Baron’s primal noir running from the shadows of Robert Rossen and lit in the natural dinge of Cassavettes. Soulless, lonely, misogynist, racist Cleveland hitman Frankie Bono (played by Baron) is contracted to extract a NY mob boss, but the Christmas season preys on his conscience and propels him into a ferocious internal battle to become “human.” It’s a losing battle. Hailed as the “new Orson Welles” at the ‘61 Cannes festival, Baron has since become a prolific director of iconic 1960’s and ‘70’s TV sitcoms and cop shows, but it’s the stripped-down, raw-nerved and impossibly bleak BLAST OF SILENCE he will forever be remembered for. With classic oddball beat characters (like Larry Tucker’s grotesque “Big Ralph”), a churning atonal jazz score by Meyer Kupferman and a black-hearted internal monologue voiced by an uncredited Lionel Stander, BLAST OF SILENCE is one of the boldest independent thrillers of the post-WW2 era and an obvious template for future mainstream classics like Scorsese’s TAXI DRIVER.

Dir. Allen Baron, 1961, 35mm, 77 min.
