Fairy Tales for Adults

View Past Events

Just because we grew up doesn’t mean we don’t like a good fairy tale. Many a filmmaker has used the archetypes and images of our favorite children’s fantasies, and treated them with a complexity or savagery that would make Mother Goose’s head spin—so let’s put the kids to bed and tell a real bedtime story. Sweet dreams are made of these.

Alice in Wonderland: An X-rated Musical Fantasy

6/24 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

The makers of the softcore hit Flesh Gordon returned with this naughty, notorious musical comedy featuring sweet ‘70s starlet Kristine DeBell (Meatballs) banging, blowing, and finger-fiddling her way through Lewis Carroll’s goofy gallery of beloved characters. Sweet librarian Alice gets cold feet about going all the way with her boyfriend and follows the White Rabbit (played by a pseudonymous Larry Gelman from “The Bob Newhart Show”) into a Wonderland that leaves her a whole lot less inhibited thanks to a filthy Mad Hatter, a skinny and very frisky Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and a nasty Queen of Hearts, among many others. Sweet, witty, and naughty in the way only the ‘70s could be, this nifty time capsule feels like an off-Broadway musical staged by the staff of Penthouse. Don’t bring the kiddies to come and see a side of Alice that Tim Burton and Disney would never, ever dare show you.

Dir. Bud Townsend, 1976, 35mm, 81 min.

“Mix together one cup of Natural Born Killers with a half-cup of Los Olvidados, sprinkle liberally with freeze-dried bile and bake for 98 minutes… [Matthew] Bright, mercifully, is an allegorist who consistently prefers projectiles to platitudes.” – Allan Ulrich, San Francisco Chronicle

Reese Witherspoon struts her stuff in what is easily one of her best performances, as a jailbait Red Riding Hood named Vanessa tearing down the I-5 to see her granny, all the while being stalked by cunning, murderous pervert/child shrink Bob Wolverton (Kiefer Sutherland). This clever, hilarious genre mishmash marked the directorial debut of former Oingo Boingo member Matthew Bright (who co-wrote Forbidden Zone) and is just as wild as you’d expect, in addition to offering a surprisingly effective parable about the corrosion of the American justice system! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience this disturbing and weirdly uplifting gem in a theater the way the movie gods intended.

Dir. Matthew Bright, 1996, 35mm, 110 min.

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

6/30 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

As joyful as it is impossible to pin down, Valerie is a haunting, psychoactive period piece which plunges the beautiful heroine Valerie into a phantasmagorical world of thirsty vampires, the dark arts, and dreamy free love — all set to one of the great film scores of the era, a cocktail of psych-folk and avant-garde classical by the great Lubos Fiser. The film opens with 13-year-old Valerie’s first menstruation and subsequent sexual awakening, her unsteady discovery of which lets loose a torrent of quixotic, hallucinatory experiences both terrifying and beautiful; amongst a haze of shifting tones and a flurry of role reversals and Gothic nightmares in broad daylight, Valerie floats along, buoyed by the fears and fantasies that come with nascent sexuality and teenage fantasy. This bewitching brew is a must to behold on 35mm — do not miss it.

Dir. Jaromil Jires, 1970, 35mm, 77 min.
