On 35mm, you’ll see the best of her best (9 To 5, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and the must-be-seen-to-be-believed Rhinestone, co-starring Sylvester Stallone as a wacky ersatz country star), as well as Dolly television rarities that’ll bring a song to your heart and a tap to your toe. This momentous shebang starts out at 9PM, and carries on ‘til the break of dawn — 5AM, to be exact. Throughout the night, the party also rages strong on our back patio, with a bedazzling station (make sure to bring items to bedazzle), and a hair station for crafting your own hair into a Dolly-fied towering creation! So don your sequins, adjust your wig and get ready to bask in the light of Dolly!

8/24/2011 - 8PM

Fun With Your Head: a monthly excursion down the rabbit hole and into the hitherto-unexplored furthest reaches of the collective cinematic mind, led by your tour guide John Wyatt (of L.A. filmic institution Cinespia!) Each night starts with a selection of specially-curated experimental rarities culled from the archives of like-minded intrepid collectors — a program that will alight your senses while also growing your ganglia — followed by a fantastic far-out feature! For August’s show, we bring you Taking Off — the lost, gentle Milos Forman film about well to-do New York runaways and the parents who pursue them. You’ll see Buck Henry, Ultra Violet, the always-spooky Vincent Schiavelli, a scorching, libidinous nightclub performance by the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, a young Carly Simon singing “Long Term Physical Effects,” an even younger Kathy Bates singing “Even the Horses Had Wings,” and what is perhaps the most charmingly whimsical getting-high-for-the-first-time scene ever filmed (featuring the Incredible String Band’s classic “Air”). Excelsior!
Taking Off Dir. Milos Forman, 1971, 35mm, 93 min.

An Evening With Ken Jacobs (moderated by Azazel Jacobs!)

Q&A with Ken Jacobs, legendary experimental filmmaker!

8/23/2011 - 8PM
Co-presented by Los Angeles Filmforum

Ken Jacobs has called cinema “a form of thinking;” by his own measure, we must count Jacobs among the greatest thinkers of his generation. Los Angeles Filmforum and The Cinefamily are thrilled to host a night of films and Q&A conversation with an artist whose diverse body of work, spanning six decades, contains many of experimental film’s most pioneering, provocative statements. A major figure whose works have been canonized in the permanent collections of MOMA and the Whitney, Jacobs has given us films, videos, performances and writings which have forever altered our concept of what cinema has been and can become. Alternately hilarious, hypnotic, confrontational and meditative, the films in this program testify to Jacobs’ lifelong commitments: progressive politics, the history and splendor of the moving image, and the search for new ideas/forms. Tonight’s five selections, shown on 16mm, 35mm and digital, all showcase divergent approaches to found footage, drawing on such wide-ranging sources as Jacobs’ longstanding fascination with the birth of cinema, high-speed transfer operas based on his own previous films, and fascinating newscast outtakes projected exactly as Jacobs found them in a wastebin. We welcome this legendary artist in person to discuss his work, and participate in a Q&A with another remarkable filmmaker: Jacobs’ own son, Azazel (director of Sundance hit Terri)!

La Dolce Vita (brand-new 35mm restoration!, WEDNESDAY SHOW)

A timeless gem, beautifully restored in 35mm!
ladolcevita_newsite
8/17/2011 - 7:45PM

Federico Fellini’s monumental La Dolce Vita has been transforming theaters into VIP lounges for over fifty years and is still cinema’s most groundbreaking and impossibly stylish party. Following doe-eyed newspaperman Marcello Mastroianni as he drifts through seven all-nighters (as well as occasional daylight) bursting with tailored suits, classy clubs, haunted villas, fashionable multinational women (Anita Ekberg, Anouk Aimée and Magali Noël, all supremely stunning), and over a hundred other characters, this episodic epic melts the screen with the high-voltage energy of ‘60s Rome, and continues to influence modern culture to this day with its depictions of high fashion, the role of paparazzi and so much more. With its non-traditional narrative, the film also marked a new era in Fellini’s filmmaking style, pointing away from his previous neo-realist works — but La Dolce Vita still packs as much of a strong emotional wallop as any of his previous classics, as it perfectly captures the moral ambivalence and spiritual vacuity of the “good life.” Come revel in the decadent luxury of this timeless gem as we present La Dolce Vita in a brand-new 35mm restoration!
Dir. Federico Fellini, 1960, 35mm, 180 min.

Living Light: An Evening With Linda Perhacs & Friends

A special live set from the songstress of Parallelograms!
livinglight_newsite_2
8/14/2011 - 7:30PM
Co-presented by L.A. Record, Dublab, Los Angeles Filmforum & The iotaCenter

The twinship between color and sound has captivated artists for centuries. Across film, dance, fine art and music, creators have long sought to convey the harmony between light, movement, and tone that reverberates through nature; it is this synesthetic vision that inspired turned psych-folk songstress Linda Perhacs to record her now mythic 1970 album “Parallelograms”. Crafting transcendental tonal illustrations within the seemingly simple trappings of late-’60s song structures, Linda plumbed the same well of inspiration that drove pioneering filmmakers to eschew representational cinema for a purer way of illustrating the symbiosis of the senses. Join us as we celebrate these visual and sonic explorers, with a rare live set from Ms. Perhacs and her band (featuring selections from “Parallelograms” and new material exclusively debuted at Cinefamily), as well as a selection of boundary-pushing cinema from the masters of the synesthetic form, new video works commissioned for the show, and live dance accompaniment from world-renowned dancer/choreographer Ryan Heffington!

Skidoo (brand-new HD restoration!)

skidoo_newsite
8/13/2011 - 10PM

You’ve only read about it and heard about it before — now, finally see one of the most notorious unseen studio films of the 1960s, presented in a brand-new HD restoration! Yes, Skidoo is the film where Jackie Gleason takes acid — but that’s just one of the many unpredictable pleasures of this somewhat misguided, yet constantly entertaining one-of-a-kinder! Director Otto Preminger takes on hippiedom and LSD in this freewheeling all-star comedy that endearingly zips back and forth between razor-sharp satire and sitcom schmaltz, all backed by lysergically-treated pop culture parodies (and one of the greatest end credit theme songs ever) from Harry Nilsson. Ralph Kramden’s not the only one along for this giddy ride, as a head-spinning number of familiar faces are also on-hand: Groucho Marx, Carol Channing, Mickey Rooney, Frankie Avalon, John Philip Law, Frank Gorshin, Burgess Meredith and scores more! In-between the mountains of uproarious throwaway gags, Preminger (who reportedly dropped acid under the supervision of Timothy Leary for pre-production research) also here executes some of the creepiest, craziest and most creative “tripping” sequences in drugsploitation cinema. The film caused such a critical uproar upon its release that it was almost permanently buried for good, but it’s finally back on the big screen where it belongs — so Skid-daddle on down to Skidoo, ‘cause if you Skid-don’t, then that’d be totally Skid-diculous!
Dir. Otto Preminger, 1968, HDCAM, 97 min.

An enchanted evening of film, ritual, and discussion!
seasonofthewitch_newsite
8/13/2011 - 7PM


Co-presented by Jodi Wille of Process Media & Maja D’Aoust, The White Witch of Los Angeles

The Witch has held a seductive, supernatural sway in nearly every culture since the dawn of man. Some dedicate their powers to healing and the service of mankind; others manipulate the mysteries to control or destroy others for gain. Loved, hated, revered, or persecuted — the Witch is one of the most misunderstood, demonized archetypes of all time. Join White Witch Maja D’Aoust and Process Media’s Jodi Wille for a spellbinding evening of film, ritual, and revelation as we illumine the role of the Witch through the ages, in popular consciousness and as conveyed through the cinematic eye. See the LA premieres of new, witch-made films by Sera Timms and Micki Pellerano, never-shown Source Family white magic rituals on film, a newly restored 16mm print of Curtis Harrington’s The Wormwood Star presented by artist-occultist Brian Butler, and more — along with selects of some of the most obscure, strange, electrifying, and influential moments of the Witch in film history. Afterwards, D’Aoust, Santeria priestess Marlene Vargas, and white wizard clairvoyant Aiden Chase will be LIVE onstage to discuss their craft and what it means to be a true witch in Los Angeles today!!!

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: Alex De La Iglesia's "The Last Circus"

“I’m making this film to exorcise a pain in my soul that just won’t go away, like oil stains. I wash my clothes with movies.” — Alex de la Iglesia

From the hyperdrive mind of one of Europe’s most ruthless cinematic satirists comes The Last Circus: a wicked tragicomic deconstruction of the terribly bloody Spanish Civil War as seen through the eyes of a benevolent-turned-psychotic Sad Clown vs. an evil alcoholic wifebeating Happy Clown! Alex de la Iglesia uses his nation’s greatest historical horror as the backdrop for an uncompromising tale of two equally damaged circus performers manically vying for the heart and soul of their joint obsession: their circus’s alluring female acrobat. Hysterically funny without watering down even a fraction of its harrowing message, the film matches its operatic, wildly unpredictable twists with the equally chaotic reality of life under Franco’s dictatorial rule of Spain in the 1970s. Equal parts Saving Private Ryan and Santa Sangre, The Last Circus is one helluva unique and thrilling time.
Dir. Alex de la Iglesia, 2010, 35mm, 107 min.

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: Bellflower (director/star in person!)

One of the most controversial films from Sundance 2011!

Easily one of the most controversial films at both this year’s Sundance and South By Southwest, Evan Glodell’s debut feature Bellflower is destined to leave you discussing, debating and deconstructing it for weeks after viewing.  This harrowing nightmare follows best friends Woodrow and Aiden, who spend all of their free time building Mad Max-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse.  When Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies. “What really matters [in Bellflower] is the emotional violence that unspools in the dark fears and fantasies we dream up when we’ve been hurt…It’s the kind of film that explores one person’s pain writ large, to the point that their hurt spells doom for the whole world. Glodell’s film will stick with you long after you leave the theater, and though you may have the comfort of remembering that it was all just a dream, just a film, you’ll still catch yourself sneaking the occasional peek towards the horizon for signs of a mushroom cloud.” — Renn Brown, CHUD Director/star Evan Glodell will be here for a Q&A after the film! Plus, DJ Dan Shapiro will be here to spin tunes before and after the film!

If you aren’t able to come to this screening, check out Bellflower when it opens at the NuArt Theater on Friday, August 5th!
