FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Sleepwalkers (director Mick Garris, co-stars Brian Krause & Madchen Amick, and Anders Holm of "Workaholics" in person!)

Director Mick Garris, along with co-stars Brian Krause and Mädchen Amick, and Anders Holm from Workaholics (a huge fan of the film) all in person! Sleepwalkers marked the first of many collaborations between Stephen King and director Mick Garris, who would later go on to helm the TV versions of The Shining, The Stand and Desperation — and damn, is it a doozy. Brian Krause and the always-haunting Alice Krige star as a mother/son team of shape-shifting energy vampires whose natural form is a sort of were-cat. Not weird enough for you? How ’bout adding some highly-charged incest into the mix? Stir in a hot dollop of Twin Peaks‘ Mädchen Amick as the love interest/heroine, as well as many horror icon cameos from the likes of John Landis, Joe Dante, Clive Barker, Tobe Hooper and Stephen King himself, and you’ve got an over-the-top saucerful of silly fun. As mentioned before, King and Garris would team up for many adaptations, but Sleepwalkers (an original screenplay) sees the dynamic duo at their whacked-out best.
Dir. Mick Garris, 1992, 35mm, 91 min.

Plus: are the family’s performances staged, or is that true fear in their eyes? Either way, there has never been anything like Roar, and there likely will never be again.

The Book of Life

4/25 - 4PM
$12/free for members

With eternal rock legend P.J. Harvey as his muse — playing the often silent but contemplating (Mary) Magdalene, who could potentially be God herself — Jesus finds that humans may not be so bad after all. The Book of Life opens with Hal Hartley’s main man Martin Donovan, this time characterized as the Messiah, who, reluctantly returning to Earth on the eve of the Millennium, must bring about the Apocalypse. Donovan is suave and edgy as always, here ranting whilst clean-shaven, blue-eyed and decked out in a smart suit. Released in 1998, practically on the eve of “Y2K”, Hartley’s shot-on-video visions are bolstered by a hypnotic shoegaze/grunge/dubstep soundtrack, and an appearance by Yo La Tengo as an off-kilter Salvation Army band. With one liners like “…wham, you’re addicted to human beings,” and “the potential for synthetically fabricated organic diseases,” this Hartley jam requires your utmost attention.
Dir. Hal Hartley, 1998, digital presentation, 63 min.

A 25th Anniversary Tribute To "The Flash" (John Wesley Shipp, Mark Hamill & many more cast/crew in person!)

4/25 - 7PM
$12/free for members

Many years ago, in the “dark ages” of TV-ized primetime comic book characters — back when, to survive on the air, a hefty dose of camp a la Wonder Woman — one show stood out as a beacon of hope for the faithful. Coming right behind the first Tim Burton Batman film, the 1990 incarnation of The Flash, starring John Wesley Shipp in the title role, lasted only a single season, yet the reverberations of its tone, approach and show-stopping SFX are still felt today in every episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Arrow and, well, the new version of The Flash. This show was a bold move for a major network, in terms of scope (at a budget of over $1million per episode) and in rendering a fantasy world rich with gutsy, complex drama.

Join us for an onstage chat with star John Wesley Shipp, along with producers/creators Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo, co-stars Mark Hamill (“The Trickster”), Mike Genovese (“Lt. Warren Garfield”), Joyce Hyser (“Megan Lockhart”), Corrine Bohrer (“Prank”) and Vito D’Ambrosio (“Officer Tony Bellows”), director Bruce Bilson, co-producer Michael Lacoe, writers Howard Chaykin and Gail Morgan Hickman, 1st AD/writer David Newman, suit designer Robert Short, and Arrow/Flash reboot producer Andrew Kriesberg, all moderated by Badass Digest lead scribe Devin Faraci — plus, we’ll screen selected Flash episodes for devotees and neophytes alike.

HEAVY MIDNITES: Problem Child & Problem Child 2 (25th Anniversary, cast/crew in person!)

“How much farting, pooping, peeing, and puking can you put in a single movie?”
– IMDb user review

Back in 1990, Problem Child tormented critics, terrified parents and pushed the limits of decency to delight kids of all ages — not to mention its spawning protests, sequels, an animated series and countless schoolyard shenanigans while leaving a powerful impact on a generation of young movie maniacs. To celebrate its 25th anniversary we’ve packed more mischievous mayhem into a single night than should be legally allowed, all to create the most epic event in Heavy Midnites history. We’re breaking out the big guns: two gorgeous, rarely-screened archival film prints, plus the special guests to tell us what really happened. Writers/creators Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander, actress Amy Yasbeck, actor Eric Edwards and Problem Child 2 director Brian Levant IN PERSON to discuss!

PROBLEM CHILD
Before becoming Hollywood’s go-to guys for offbeat biopics, (Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt, Man In The Moon) writers Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander launched their careers with a deliciously deranged tale of a red-haired tyke’s wild exploits and the full-scale comic nightmares that follow him. Larry and Scott’s skilled touch shows, elevating a simple premise to unforeseen heights of blackly comic absurdity. When obnoxious seven-year-old monster Junior is adopted by Ben & Flo (the lovable John Ritter and his soon to be real-life wife Amy Yasbeck), all hell breaks loose as the blue-eyed cutie terrorizes all that cross his path. No cat, campout, birthday or ball game is safe from this Satanic hellspawn. Co-starring franchise MVPs Jack Warden and Gilbert Gottfried, plus Seinfeld’s Michael Richards as an escaped serial killer convict known as The Bow Tie Killer!
Dir. Dennis Dugan, 1990, 35mm, 81 min.

PROBLEM CHILD 2
Here it is, the legendarily not-safe-for-parents, PG-13 Problem Child follow-up that goes waaaay beyond bad taste to become one of the most hilariously inappropriate comedies ever unleashed. Doubling down on the wild antics of the first, Junior meets his match in pint-sized psychopath Trixie. He’s bad but she’s worse, and the tiny terrors will stop at nothing to get their single parents together. It’s the closest and grossest we may ever get to a John Waters-inspired family film, and it’s what the Orlando Sentinel called “the most sheerly repulsive kiddie movie ever filmed.” We love it.
Dir. Brian Levant, 1991, 35mm, 90 min. (Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive)

An Evening With Theresa Russell (feat. "Bad Timing!")

theresarussell_generic_website
4/26 - 7:30PM
$12/free for members

Join us for an in-depth onstage chat with actress Theresa Russell (Bad Timing, Black Widow, Track 29, Straight Time, Eureka, Cold Heaven and many more) about her illustrious career, followed by a 35mm screening of perhaps her greatest collaboration with filmmaker Nic Roeg! After coaxing strong turns from pop music personalities in Performance (Mick Jagger) and The Man Who Fell To Earth (David Bowie), Nic Roeg found his next leading man in the unlikely Art Garfunkel, who turns in one hell of an intense performance opposite an equally on-fire Theresa Russell. Elliptically skipping back and forth through time, we open with a catatonic Russell undergoing a mysterious operation while Garfunkel looks on and recalls their stormy relationship — one which quickly degenerated into a series of psychologically violent games that treat sex and power interchangeably. Not sparing the mutual immolation of its leads for one moment, the film culminates in a searing final act that takes a Possession-like wrecking ball to the audience.
Dir. Nic Roeg, 1980, 35mm, 123 min. (Archival print courtesy of the BFI)

4/27 - 8PM
all tix $18

A special night of rare imagery and genre-defying music by guitar god Sir Richard Bishop, plus A/V performances by Sublime Frequencies artist Robert Millis and comedian/longtime Bishop friend Neil Hamburger. A founding member of ethno-improv weirdo-rock pioneers Sun City Girls (1981-2007, known for their obsessions with UFOs, mysticism, religion and ritual), Sir Richard’s also spent the past decade confounding and astounding audiences as a shape-shifting solo artist. His transcendental emanations and mind-boggling juxtapositions of pan-continental styles have garnered him an international following including Animal Collective, Will Oldham and Devendra Banhart, all of whom he’s toured with extensively. This time he’s in town for the release of his new platter, Tangier Sessions, a largely improvised album recorded during a brief stay in Morocco. With influences from Django Reinhardt to Jimmy Page to his own Middle Eastern musical heritage, one thing’s for certain: we can tell you roughly what you’ll be seeing tonight, but with Sir Richard, you never know what you’re going to get. And, whatever it is will Blow. Your. Mind.

“A joyous celebration of creativity and razor-sharp wit sustained into old age, ‘Iris’ also offers proof of Albert Maysles’ continued vitality as a documentarian.” — Variety

From the director of Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter! Iris pairs the late, legendary documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven whose outsized presence has graced the NYC fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, it’s a story about creativity, and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. This “rare bird of fashion,” as she is now known, first came to prominence in the 1950s when she and her husband Carl — who turned 100 during filming — founded Old World Weavers, a textile company hired by nine presidents for White House restorations. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”
Dir. Albert Maysles, 2014, DCP, 83 min.

This “rare bird of fashion,” as she is now known, first came to prominence in the 1950s when she and her husband Carl — who turned 100 during filming — founded Old World Weavers, a textile company hired by nine presidents for White House restorations. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “I feel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”
Dir. Albert Maysles, 2014, DCP, 83 min.

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Piranha - The Ultimate Edition

piranha_website
5/8 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Our screening comes from the lone 16mm print of Piranha: The Ultimate Edition, a new fan edit which includes scenes only found in the TV broadcast version! In the bloody, movie biz-altering, blockbuster wake of Jaws, an ocean of cheapo sea-creature features rushed in to chomp out their share of the ferocious fishploitation market. The very best of these was Corman’s 1978 jam Piranha, directed by up-and-comer Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins, The ‘Burbs), and written by master scribe John Sayles, who balanced an “indie darling” filmmaking career with Corman flicks like Alligator and Battle Beyond the Stars. Starring Keenan Wynn, Kevin McCarthy, Barbara Steele and Dante stalwart Dick Miller, the plot finds weaponized piranha bred by the military set loose on a resort water park, resulting in some major teeth-chomping bloodshed. Dante’s love of 50′s sci-fi/horror and playful sense of mayhem make the film a rare delight — a knockoff that’s just as fun as the original, with fledgling SFX guru Rob Bottin’s puppet fish as a wonder to behold.
Dir. Joe Dante, 1978, 16mm, approx. 104 min.

Desperate Living (Mink Stole in person!)

Co-presented by LETHAL AMOUNTS, WESTGATE GALLERY and VINEGAR SYNDROME.

The fabulous Mink Stole joins us in person to talk about filming one of the most out-there ’70s films PERIOD! John Waters’ first film without regular leading lady Divine is also one of his most extreme and gut-busting trash epics, kicking off with perhaps the funniest ten minutes he ever filmed as harried mental patient Peggy Gravel (Mink Stole) loses her marbles and, with the aid of obese maid Grizelda (Jean Hill), smothers her husband to death. On the lam, these “sisters in crime” wind up in the evil magic kingdom of Mortville, presided over by the sadistic and completely insane Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey) who forces her male guards to perform strip routines. Toss in a dog food murderer, a nudist garbage man, a panty-sniffing patrol cop, gaudy production design including a cut-rate Day-Glo palace, a rabid princess, and a most wince-inducing scissors sex change, and you’ve got an X-rated bedtime story that only the maker of Pink Flamingos could tell.
Dir. John Waters, 1977, 35mm, 90 min.

THE SILENT TREATMENT: Frank Capra's "Submarine"

submarine_website
5/16 - 2PM
$12/free for members

While Frank Capra (It Happened One Night, It’s A Wonderful Life) was one of the early sound era’s first great innovators, never forget that he was first schooled in purely visual storytelling. When watching his earliest works, you can see the endless directions this talented young man was capable of traveling in; he clearly had the “touch,” with his flair for comedy (in directing Harry Langdon’s greatest hits), melodrama (as seen in the incredibly dark and powerful The Way Of The Strong), and adventure blockbusters like this red-blooded tale. Navy man Jack Reagon (Jack Holt) falls for and marries dance-hall girl Bessie (Dorothy Revier), an indecisive lass who can’t adjust to matrimony. Natch, a love affair starts between Bessie and Reagon’s longtime Navy pal Bob Mason (Ralph Graves), who later becomes trapped underwater in a sunken submarine — and it’s up to Jack to put aside his anger to save his friend’s life. So successful was Submarine that Capra re-teamed with Holt and Graves for two more romantic-triangle rescue dramas: his early talkies Flight (1929) and Dirigible (1931).
Dir. Frank Capra, 1928, 35mm, 93 min.

The 5 Minutes Game: 2015 Edition

$12/free for members

It’s one of our oldest Cinefamily traditions, having lasted since our very beginnings. And it’s been damned fun, too, every time. Summer’s around the corner, and you know how we here at the theater love two things in tandem: busting out the patio grill, and The Five Minutes Game. What’s all this about a game, you ask? We’re firm believers in “Every movie is interesting for at least its first five minutes”, those fascinating moments when you’re still entering the new world a film presents you, and trying to figure out what the hell’s going on. What we’re gonna do is choose fifteen movies you’ve likely never seen before (with most of them still unavailable on DVD), line ‘em up and only show you the first five minutes of each, not counting their opening credits. After all that, you, the audience, votes on which film out of the fifteen we all then peep in its entirety. So bring something to cook on our grill and let’s get started!

5:00-6:30PM – The Five Minutes Game!
6:30-7:30PM – we tally the votes and BBQ on the patio!
7:30-9:00PM – we watch the winning film!

These delightfully delirious colorful Christian interpretations of the 70s/80s occult movement will have you questioning your faith— or at least your faith in objective documentaries— as we: visit San Francisco’s First Church of Satan, get to know a Grandmaster Warlock, perform the ancient rite of the backwards Zeppelin record, dust off our stonehenge theories, bust out the Ouiji boards and hypnotize ourselves silly. Join us, seekers, as we toast to our favorite esoteric phenomenon of them all; the glory of cinema!

FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Madman (brand-new restoration, producer Gary Sales and star Paul Ehlers in person!)

madman_website666
5/29 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Co-presented by VINEGAR SYNDROME

Producer Gary Sales and star Paul Ehlers in person! “Hangs you up, breaks your neck / Swings the axe, chops your head / Bloody stump, gushing red / Body jerks, till your dead.” So waxes the theme song of Madman Marz, the titular creeper of Joe Giannone’s 1982 deep-cut slasher flick Madman. Originally designed as a film about the East Coast urban legend Cropsey, Giannone was forced to change his script after The Burning (also about the bloody carnage of Cropsey) was released. But the world was better for it, since we now have the legend of Madman Marz — now a total maniac who murdered his family and who will supposedly appear if you call out his name near his old cabin. Of course, a foolish and curious camp counselor does just that, unleashing a gory massacre. Wonky and oddly wonderful, Madman is a must-see to round out your slasher subgenre education. Front-and-center in this film is actress Gaylen Ross, whose only three onscreen roles happened to be in this, Dawn of the Dead and Creepshow.
Dir. Joe Giannone, 1981, DCP, 88 min.
