A carefully curated collection of pizza party classics, fist explosions, international adrenaline-pumpers, ‘80s funbombs, white-hot laugh factories, total freakazoids and more. But this is no MST3K chucklethon; this is a dedicated study of all that is, and can be, AWESOME. Nothing makes us happier than: 1) B-list pics delivering A-list thrills; and 2) the glorious time when the weathered faces of Warren Oates and Charles Bronson were marquee idols.

“One night, I sat down, the ideas came in, and it was a most beautiful experience.” – David Lynch, 2001

“The best film of the decade” – Los Angeles Film Critics Society

David Lynch’s auteurist fantasia is dense, hypnotic, intoxicating and absolutely impossible to forget. What better anniversary of its to celebrate, other than its lucky 13th? There’s never been a better time to surrender yourself to this modern masterpiece of fragmented beauty and enigmatic, mind-shredding power. Lynch creates a visionary Los Angeles nightmare, a stunningly photographed neo-noir of danger, dread, deep mystery, dark humor and Sapphic desire, dismantling the Hollywood dream like pieces in a subconscious puzzle. Riveting performances from Naomi Watts and Laura Harring anchor a narrative that swallows itself whole, while a gorgeous Angelo Badalamenti score and impressive supporting cast of up-and-comers (Justin Theroux), cinematic legends (Ann Miller, Lee Grant) and genre film favorites (Robert Forster, James Karen) keep us consistently spellbound. It’s perfectly uncompromising, and all the more compelling for it.
Dir. David Lynch, 2001, 35mm, 147 min.

HEAVY MIDNITES: Craig Denney's "The Astrologer"

11/8 - 10PM

“You’re not an astrologer…YOU’RE AN ASSHOLE!” — Arthyr Chadbourne, in The Astrologer

Our compatriots at Austin, TX’s American Genre Film Archive bring us a lost masterwork of such feverish potency that it immediately evokes memories of Top 10 Cinefamily Bizarro Moments Of All-Time like Dangerous Men, Lost In The Desert and After Last Season. The brainchild of writer/director/star/supposed celebrity astrologer Craig Denney, 1975’s The Astrologer is a self-aggrandizing yet completely dislocating auto-biopic journey into “What makes a world-famous zodiac peddler tick?” Natch, it involves humble beginnings as a carnival huckster, diamond smuggling, African jail, Indiana Jones-level daring-do, carousing in Valley dive bars with haggard-as-hell barflies, an avant-garde film-within-the-film (titled The Astrologer), slo-mo food fights and more Moody Blues than you can handle. No situation is too nutz for Denney to flash his irascible smirk at — and no single scene will ever prepare you for what the next will be. A shattering missive from the outermost limits of cinematic sanity — and the most delirious film find of 2014, discovered amongst the impossible hodgepodge of over one thousand donated 35mm prints from a single humungous batch. HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
Dir. Craig Denney, 1975, 35mm, 77 min.
