7/23/2011 - 10:30PM

Not to be confused with Skatetown U.S.S.R., this film is as American as baseball, preemptive strikes and large-breasted women in tight polyester. Dozens of movie clichés are thrown in a blender and then poured all over a mirror ball and refracted onto the Skatetown U.S.A. roller rink, where everyone from Flip Wilson to Billy Barty to Scott Baio to Ruth Buzzi to Dorothy Stratton collide headfirst with Patrick Swayze (in a smoldering debut as bad boy disco skate gang leader “Ace”.) This insane and entertaining movie has romance, drug humor, blindsiding slapstick violence and a motorized skate race on a pier that compares with the chariot race in Ben Hur, but staffed by Air Supply lookalikes. Alongside the garish clothes and DJs magically shooting lasers out their fingers is some honestly terrific skate choreography — and Marcia Brady making out with Horshak from “Welcome Back, Kotter.” In short, it’s The Rock and Roller Disco Movie Of The Year! DJ Dia (KSPC) will be here to spin tunes before and after the film!
Dir. William A. Levey, 1979, 35mm, 98 min.

7/20/2011 - 8PM

A debut monthly excursion down the rabbit hole and into the hyper-saturated, hitherto-unexplored furthest reaches of the collective cinematic mind — led by your tour guide John Wyatt (of L.A. filmic institution Cinespia!) Kaleidoscopic cityscapes, the geometry of language, inner trips and prismatic visions of the human soul collide in a session of electric viewing never to be duplicated. John’s specially curated programs of experimental rarities, culled from the archives of like-minded intrepid collectors, will alight your senses while also growing your ganglia.

For Fun With Your Head’s debut presentation, we have one of the rarest and coolest vintage psychedelic movie experiences you’ve never seen: Wow, directed by Claude Jutra (Mon Oncle Antoine), one of Quebec’s most celebrated filmmakers! This French-Canadian filmic phantasmagoria from 1970 — which has gone almost completely unseen in the U.S. — is the story of nine young adults who act out their dreams in a series of swirling tableaux that encompass not only incredible visual effects, but also the most explosive subjects of its era: authority, drugs, social conflict and sex. So bring some adventurous friends, settle in and kick-start yourself into seeing the plane beyond the brain!
Wow Dir. Claude Jutra, 1970, DigiBeta, 94 min. (Archival print source courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada)

7/16/2011 - 7PM

A witty, hot pink girl-power opus, Legally Blonde wears its “chick flick” label as proudly on its sleeve as its heroine wears her Delta Nu pledge pin. Reese Witherspoon rules in her star-making turn as Elle Woods, a bright-eyed cross between Malibu Barbie and Justice Ginsberg. Blonde follows its Prada-clad queen as she determinedly trots through Harvard Law School, raising eyebrows and evolving from a ditzy, heartbroken sorority president into a go-for-blood-Jonnie-Cochran-esque defense attorney — with sound integrity and better hair. Dazzlingly playful and unapologetically addictive, this is the movie that comes on on a Saturday night while you’re getting ready, and makes sure that you never quite make it out of the house. Legally Blonde co-writers Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah will be here for a Q&A after the screening, accompanied by more special guests TBA!
Dir. Robert Luketic, 2001, 35mm, 96 min.

NOTE: This show is free (first-come, first-serve).  To help us track attendance and limit waiting line size, you must pre-register for “first-come, first-serve” admission.   One registration per person.  All current Cinefamily members get first entry (and +1).   Your registration does not guarantee you a seat.  Early arrival is highly recommended.  Doors will open 30 min. before showtime.  No one will be admitted after the film has begun.

Equal parts love story, film noir, brainy B-movie and demented fairy tale, the brand-new feature from Academy Award-winner Errol Morris (The Fog of War, Gates of Heaven, The Thin Blue Line) is a delirious meditation on hysteria — both public and personal — from a filmmaker who continues to break down and blow open the documentary genre with his penetrating portraits of eccentric and profoundly complex characters. In Tabloid, Morris concocts another jaw-dropping portrayal, this time of phenomenally driven former “beauty queen” Joyce McKinney, whose romantic single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe, and directly onto the front pages of the ruthless British tabloid newspapers. Morris effortlessly pilots you through Joyce’s much-stranger-than-fiction journey, as he weaves a web of gunpoint abduction, manacled Mormons, oddball accomplices, bondage modeling, magic underwear and dreams of celestial unions! Errol Morris will be here in person for a Q&A after the screening!
Dir. Errol Morris, 2010, 35mm, 87 min.

If you’re unable to make it to this screening, Tabloid opens on July 15th at The Landmark, Sunset 5, Town Center 5 and Playhouse 7! Check out the Tabloid Facebook page here!
