ALL OF THEM WITCHES: The Girl on the Broomstick

girlbroomstick_480_309
7/24/2016 - 7:30PM

All cooped up for 300 years, bored young sorceress Saxana (Petra Cernocka) illicitly enchants herself into the human realm, only to end up in a mortal high school. When the only way to get home is to procure a hag’s ear, Saxana embarks on her own mystical comedy of errors in which the teachers become rabbits, the principal’s head goes missing, and – worst of all – she keeps getting caught passing notes. With her own sly yet amateur brand of magic, Saxana works spells in pursuit of friendship, mischief, and to get back home to her castle – all girded by a mysterious soundtrack of fuzzy slow-jazz grooves (some of which Petra performs herself!). A fable with plenty of signature Czech charm, dramatic costuming, and tongue-in-cheek humor, The Girl on the Broomstick is a vintage treasure and a staple fantasy adventure for all of them witches out there.

Dir. Václav Vorlícek, 1972, 35mm, 76 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Day of Wrath

dayofwrath_480_309
7/23/2016 - 4PM

Against the backdrop of seventeenth-century witch-hunts, an elderly pastor’s young wife begins an affair with her adult stepson. Haunted by rumors of her deceased mother’s witchcraft and the town’s hungry moral majority, she breaks from repression and pursues this obsessive, passionate love. Has some spell sparked this wild awakening? Or has a small town gone mad with religious fear? Steeped in Lutheran-infused existential dread, and made under Nazi occupation by Carl T. Dreyer (The Passion of Joan Of Arc, Vampyr), this already loaded film might be an accidental Resistance allegory, with its anti-institutional bent and portrayal of interrogation and torture.

Dir. Carl Theodor Dreyer, 1943, 35mm, 97 min.

Kiki's Delivery Service

kikisdeliveryservice_480_309
7/17/2016 - 8PM

Coming straight off of three bonafide masterpieces in a row (Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro), Miyazaki made quite possibly the sweetest film of his career with the magical Kiki’s Delivery Service. The titular 13-year old witch, about to embark on her mandatory year of independence, heads to the big city with only her talking feline Jiji in tow. Kiki quickly takes a job at a bakery delivering goods by broomstick, but finds herself losing her abilities as the pressures and insecurities of the post-parental world set in. With the perennial push-pull of adolescent (in)dependence at stake–and in this case, the particularly loaded Japanese iteration of such–Kiki is forced to reckon with the threat of unchecked self doubt clouding her head, her heart, and her witchy instincts.

Dir. Hayao Miyazaki, 1989, 35mm (Japanese w/ English subtitles), 103 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS - Sugar Hill (w/ Dir. Paul Maslansky in person!)

sugarhill_480_309
7/16/2016 - MIDNITE

The “witch” at hand here is Marki Bey as Diana Hill, aka Sugar Hill, a glam, white jumpsuit-clad voodoo queen, out to seek revenge for her lover’s murder at the hands of a band of sleazy and racist goons. The gangsters get what Sugar decides they deserve, with the help of the voodoo lord of the dead, Baron Samedi, and his zombie army made up the preserved bodies of former slaves brought over from Guinea. This blaxploitation flick hits all the right notes, equal parts cutting and creepy, and with a forest-set “reawakening of the zombies” scene that simply cannot be beat.

Dir Paul Maslansky, 1974, 35mm, 91 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Vali

vali_480_309
7/13/2016 - 10PM

The lone documentary inclusion in our ALL OF THEM WITCHES series, Vali is also perhaps the rarest, receiving only limited theatrical distribution on the occasional arthouse screen and a brief home release from Mystic Fire Video in the ‘80s. Underground filmmaking couple Sheldon and Flame Schon (Diane Rochlin) took their 16mm camera deep into the woods along Italy’s Amalfi coast into the forest home of Vali Myers, an Australian expat, practicing artist, dancer, and general Western counter-cultural muse, who was an acknowledged inspiration to a young Patti Smith and patronized by tastemaker and The Paris Review founder and editor, George Plimpton. A distinct and autonomous entity even for bohemian types, Vali’s unique brand of mystic spiritualism has her engaging in esoteric rituals and magic spells before the Rochlins’s camera, which captures her dynamic movements with impressionistic cinematography as pure and magical as the psychedelic Witch of Positano herself. Sheldon’s graceful, lilting lensing and the duo’s playful editing highlight the magical properties of natural color and light, reinforcing the self-expression to which Vali’s lifestyle so beautifully subscribes.

Dir. Sheldon Rochlin, 1967, Digital Presentation, 65 min.

Exploding at the seams with anti-puritanical flamboyance, Ken Russell’s assuredly-directed The Devils is like a darkly humorous journey into a mind on the brink of insanity. With sumptuous set design by Derek Jarman (Jubilee, Sebastiane), and celestial and melodramatic costuming by Shirley Russell, the film tells the tale of a 17th-century priest (Oliver Reed in his most arresting performance) accused of witchcraft by Sister Jeanne (a maddeningly creepy Vanessa Redgrave), a nun firmly in the grips of erotic hysteria.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Friday Night Frights - Inferno (w/ Leigh McCloskey & Irene Miracle in person!)

inferno
7/1/2016 - 10PM

With an introduction by Leigh McCloskey, actor, author, and expert on the occult!

Foregoing conventional logic for pure nightmare dreamscape, Inferno finds director Dario Argento at the top of his game, and is the second film in his “Three Mothers” trilogy (directly following Suspiria). An American college student in Rome (Leigh McCloskey, frequent soap opera heartthrob and star of the infamous TV movie Alexander: The Other Side of Dawn) is called to New York to help his poet sister investigate the mysterious and supernatural history of her building. The threadbare plot serves as a springboard for some of Argento’s wildest set pieces (the underwater ballroom!), imaginative use of light and color, and continued exploration of visual alchemy propelled by a raging soundtrack (this time by Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s keyboard virtuoso Keith Emerson). With optical effects by Argento’s mentor, Italian grandmaster Mario Bava, Inferno is easily one of the most beautiful films in the Video Nasties canon — so don’t miss it loud ‘n large in 35mm!

Dir. Dario Argento, 1980, 35mm, 107 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: George A. Romero's 'Season of the Witch'

6/30/2016 - 10:30PM

Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive

After his first zombie classic, Romero produced this endearing and atmospheric early ’70s experiment, worthy of rediscovery. Season Of The Witch tried to find an audience under other titles (Jack’s Wife and Hungry Wives), neither of which captured this surreal portrait of a housewife who resorts to suburban witchcraft when her husband and friends fail to provide any excitement. Don’t miss your chance to catch this ultra-rare slice of Romero in a bona fide 35mm print.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Suspiria

Suspiria-318
6/28/2016 - 10:30PM

Both the pinnacle of his career and of the giallo subgenre, Dario Argento’s Suspiria ranks in the pantheon of the greatest horror movies of all time, and with damn good reason. Masterfully employing dream logic (the script was co-written by then wife Daria Nicolodi) and gloriously garish lighting techniques, the film is a true modern fairy tale that tells the story of a ballet student (Jessica Harper) who transfers to a German dance academy only to find it is run by a coven of murderous witches. Argento’s command of shock and suspense is on full display in every blood-soaked scene, but the true secret weapon of Suspiria is the unbelievably scary and propulsive score by the prog rock band Goblin. It all adds up to that rare witches brew: a perfect horror experience, and one that demands its spell be cast on the big screen.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Hangover Matinees - Bell, Book and Candle

bellbook_480_309
6/19/2016 - 1PM

Live Set from DJ Mean Mr. Mustard!
Join us on the patio at noon for libations on the patio!

Based on a play inspired by Rene Clair’s I Married A Witch, Bell, Book and Candle is the too-oft forgotten showcase of the chemistry between Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak (Vertigo was released the same year). An absolutely delightful romance of the highest order, with a healthy dose of creep seeping into the periphery, it’s a classic tale of a love spell gone wrong: Kim Novak plays a seductive art dealer who decides her neighbor’s fiancé just isn’t good enough for him, casts a spell to get what she wants, and accidentally falls in love.

Sumptuously lensed in a bewitching palette of blue, lavender, and red by none other than James Wong Howe (Indiscretion of an American Wife, Sweet Smell of Success) and capturing Greenwich Village streets at dawn and twilight, this sole Hangover Matinee entry in our ALL OF THEM WITCHES series presents a singular and uncannily practical representation of a cat’s point of view. With a lovably goofy performance from Jack Lemmon as a warlock, and Jean Louis’ inimitable costumes, Bell Book and Candle is the greatest Christmas witch film you didn’t even realize you were missing.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Friday Night Frights - The Craft

craft_website
6/17/2016 - MIDNITE

A spiritual predecessor to Joss Whedon’s TV Buffy-verse—which mined the “high school is hell” theme for several seasons—The Craft tells the tale of a high school witch coven attempting to seduce a new and powerful recruit. With a ‘90s dream team cast of young actresses—including Fairuza Balk (in a scene-stealing performance), Neve “Party of Five” Campbell, and Robin “Empire Records” Tunney—this silly/spooky flick is a deft exploration of the fragile ecosystem of cliques and teenage ties that bind, made all the more tenuous with a blast of cool magick! As an added bonus, look forward to a rockin’ 90s soundtrack…

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 up with Jim Henson to adapt a book by the bizarre and beloved author of children’s fiction, Roald Dahl (The BFG, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach). The result—a darkly comedic and, frankly, kinda disturbing fairy tale that Dahl himself declared “utterly appalling”—is an eccentric masterwork that’s been both delighting and destroying kids of all ages for more than twenty years. It’s pure kindertrauma when a coven of witches try to rid Britain of youngsters by turning them into teeny-tiny, fuzzy four-legged mice. Fiendishly funny and devilishly magical, this fantastical nightmare even supplies a deliriously wicked, over-the-top turn from Angelica Huston and imaginative mouse-a-tronic puppetry from Henson’s creature shop… entertainment perfect for The Witching Hour!

You thought bearing your first child would be difficult? Try harboring Satan’s spawn in your womb. Every female’s paranoia about pregnancy is confronted both satirically and solemnly in Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby, the filmmaker’s first major stateside effort. Mia Farrow’s Omaha-born Rosemary, burdened by a lifetime of Catholic guilt and the narcissism of her actor husband Guy (an insipidly villainous John Cassavetes), finds her ultimate goal of motherhood foisted upon her, the conception curiously timed to increased visits from a septuagenarian couple, the Castavets (Sidney Blackmer and the ever-sublime Ruth Gordon). If the chanting heard through the apartment walls in the storied Bramford building they call home and the dreams too vivid to be apparitions could once be cast off, the wrath of the black magick brought upon Ro can no longer be ignored as gestation morphs into a nightmare incarnate. Join us as we “Hail, Satan!” in a rousing toast to Upper West Side, high society witchcraft in what we consider one of the greatest American horror films ever made.

It’s pure kindertrauma when a coven of witches try to rid Britain of youngsters by turning them into teeny-tiny, fuzzy four-legged mice. Fiendishly funny and devilishly magical, this fantastical nightmare even supplies a deliriously wicked, over-the-top turn from Angelica Huston and imaginative mouse-a-tronic puppetry from Henson’s creature shop… entertainment perfect for The Witching Hour!

Dir. Nicholas Roeg, 1990, 35mm, 92 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: OCCULT LA - Haxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages w/ a live score by WHITE MAGIC (Encore!)

haxan_480_309
6/7/2016 - 7:30PM

Presented by Jodi Wille (Director of The Source Family)

Live score by WHITE MAGIC with special guests Rococo Jet (Nora Keyes + Jimi Cabeza de Vaca) & Carisa Bianca Mellado!

Conjured in an obsessive fever dream by one of the boldest auteurs of the era (with the highest budget of any Swedish silent) Haxan is a taboo-busting, genre-bending, gorgeously-filmed exploration of witch hysteria during the Inquisition. Its release was so controversial that 8,000 Catholic women protested outside a single theater in France, and UK reviewers demanded that theaters “take it off the screen immediately!” Nearly 100 years later, Haxan’s vivid and haunting imagery is still searingly potent and the film still polarizing–considered by some a macabre exploitation film and by others an unflinching, authentic portrayal of the horrors wrought in the name of God during one of the most devastating eras of human history.

LA-based WHITE MAGIC (Mira Billotte) will provide a live score to the film. Afterwards, join us on the patio to celebrate White Magic’s new record, “I’m Hiding My Nightingale,” amidst a pop-up exhibition of occult-themed posters and art from Century Guild.

Dir. Benjamin Christensen, 1922, Digital presentation, 87 min.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Friday Night Frights - Black Sunday

blacksunday_480_309
6/3/2016 - MIDNITE

The first official film by Italian horror maestro Mario Bava, Black Sunday remains one of the cornerstones of both Italian and Gothic horror, more than 50 years after its 1960 release. Considered wildly graphic for its day, the stylish and deeply unsettling film concerns the curse of a centuries old witch (played with voluptuous intensity in an icon-defining performance from Barbara Steele) who returns from the grave to wreak vengeance on the family whose ancestors burnt her at the stake hundreds of years prior. Dripping with atmosphere, Bava imbues every frame with an artistry that set the high standard for Italian horror, the spark fanned into flames by future genre masters like Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci. More visually impressive and shocking than many of its classic horror contemporaries, Black Sunday is a vital film that demands to be seen on the big screen

Dir. Mario Bava, 1960, 35mm, 87 min.

Based on the Nikolai Gogol novel of the same name (which also served as inspiration for none other than Mario Bava’s Black Sunday), and considered to be the first Soviet-era horror film released in the USSR, Viy is the hidden gem of our ALL OF THEM WITCHES series. Criminally underseen and unlike anything that came before it, Viy throws you into rural medieval Russia with a Goya-esque cast of grotesque bit-players, ingenious special effects, and dizzying, avant-garde cinematography. With tantalizing choreography that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat, the titular Viy (loosely translated as the Devil’s emissary) engulfs the film in all her ashen, earthy, sinister glory! Perfect for both seasoned and green lovers of all things occult, don’t miss a rare 35mm presentation of this Russian masterpiece.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Lost & Found Film Club - Witches

Witches_LFFC_web480
6/1/2016 - 7:30PM

We’re flying to the fringes of 16mm filmmaking to conjure a program of experimental shorts about witches and those who love them. Witchcraft has been subject to a wide variety of portrayals in short film history, from Maya Deren’s ethereal occult dreamscapes in Witch’s Cradle to the cackling cartoons of spider-webbed educational films. This moody brew features the best of both worlds! Fall under the spell of Stan Brakhage’s Cat’s Cradle, see Barbara Hammer’s Women’s Rites (shot on witches land in Northern CA), then sample the cooking of a suburban witch who specializes in trippy “magic pancakes.” Playing with animation, pixelation, time-lapse, and found footage as only the alchemical magic of film can, this is an acetate incantation for the cloak and crystal set. This supernatural 16mm spell will be cast for only one eerie eve, so transmogrify your coven’s calendar accordingly.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Teen Witch & The Worst Witch Double Feature (w/ Producer Alana Lambros & Robyn Lively in person!)

5/28/2016 - 11PM

Live Set from DJ Totally Abuse

Growing up is hard for girls. You’ve got to deal with boys, boobs, bratty brothers, and Brad, the hunky football star who has no idea you’re alive! Luckily, the Cinefamily’s got a cure for your angst in the form of a Worst Witch x Teen Witch double feature! This potion of potent pubescence is one part made-for-TV Disney nostalgia, one part Salem bildungsroman, two minutes of adorably uncomfortable ‘80s rap, and all the eye o’ newts we could find, brewed in one seething cauldron of adolescent witchiness!

Louise’s life is changed when her latent magical powers become apparent on her sixteenth birthday. Once an uber-nerd, our new Teen Witch uses her gifts for love, homework, and popularity, only to realize that her sorcery comes with serious complications. A cotton-candy comedy packed with teased-out neon fashion and an earworm’s worth of original songs (you’re gonna have to dig deep to Top That!), Teen Witch is a spellbinding staple brought to life by a cast with supernatural appeal: the sexy duo of Robyn Lively and Dan Gauthier, Near Dark’s Joshua John Miller and Poltergeist’s Zelda Rubinstein.

Dir. Dorian Walker, 1989, 35mm, 94 min.

Speaking of potions both innocuous and iniquitous, who could forget 1986′s Disney Channel original, The Worst Witch? We follow the clumsy Mildred (Fairuza Balk, before her turn as The Craft‘s nefarious Nancy) in her efforts at Ms. Cackle’s International Academy for Witches. Between terror tag, broomstick lessons, and potions class, Mildred’s school year is turning out to be abracadismal—if only she believed in herself! Featuring a musical showstopper from the Grand Wizard (who else but Tim Curry himself), The Worst Witch is where Halloween kitsch meets girl power, where a girl (or ghoul) like Mildred can realize that no matter her doubts, “Once in a purple moon, there is a special young witch who shines above the rest!”

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Eyes of Fire

The woods of early American settlers were a territory of savage darkness:the home of the devil and mysteriously foreboding. Like the untamed American continent itself, the woods were an unknowable place,and still remain ripe for projections of fantasy and horror (see: The Witch). Surrealist photographer (and first time filmmaker) Avery Crounse’s Eyes of Fire seizes the psychology of these early settlers in this poor-man’s-punk take on the supernatural battle between good and evil, rife with impressively fantastical set pieces—from trees with faces and a mysterious naked forest-dwelling sect to rains of skulls and bones—all swung on a shoestring budget. ALL OF THEM WITCHES proudly resurrects this fierce, DIY horror flick, excavated from several realms beyond the consciousness of even the committed cult-film lover, for your late-night enjoyment.

ALL OF THEM WITCHES: Practical Magic + ‘90s Dress Up Party!

5/21/2016 - 10PM

DJ set by Arjuna Genome

It’s the late ‘90s. Lilith Fair rules the airwaves, midriffs are exposed, and Griffin Dunne is directing the witch movie you didn’t know you needed. In a small town, idyllic save for the crowds of children chanting “witch, witch, you’re a bitch” at the leading ladies, a family of witches cursed in love come together to banish a boyfriend who just won’t take the hint. Sisters played by Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman get themselves into a big enough mess with a certain Belladonna that they have to call upon their meddling aunts (Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest) for help, with their own young daughters (also witches) along for the ride. They cast spells, eat ice cream for breakfast, and drink margaritas at midnight in this indulgent witch-flick rom-com mash up. We’ll watch the film and then party on our patio, witchy ‘90s Nicole Kidman style (meaning: wear a choker).

Dir. Griffin Dunne, 1998, 35mm, 104 min.
