“[L]ooks to be full of the campiest costumes and makeup and jewelry this side of ‘The Cremaster Cycle’.” — The Fader

Fresh from their gig at the FIGAt7th downtown festival, Paw Tracks recording artists Prince Rama join us to present the L.A. premiere of their brand-new extended music video Never Forever. Full of zombies, jacuzzis of blood, sci-fi disco, muscle men and exotic animals, director Lily X. Wahrman’s new work is one big hyper-dimensional pile of synthy, saturated crazy. Plus, after the premiere, it’s the one film that completes the most perfect double feature possible with Never Forever: the gaudy, futuristic rock musical The Apple. Set in “1994”, this absurd-o Biblical allegory concerns the perils of a young couple discovered by an all-powerful fascistic funk band’s Satanical manager, who exploits them for his own ungodly gain. If that already sounds like a hoot, toss into the mix gay henchmen, bad accents, chorus-girl fire squads, circus acts, disco odes to amphetamines, hippies, sequined jockstraps, kvetching yentas, clothed orgies, Carpenters rip-offs, flying Cadillacs and a jivin’ production number set in the depths of Hell — all brought to you by director Menahem Golan, also responsible for Over The Top and The Delta Force!
Never Forever Dir. Lily X. Wahrman, 2013, digital presentation, 15 min.
The Apple Dir. Menahem Golan, 1980, 35mm, 86 min.

PRESENTED BY CINESPIA.

Location: Saban Theatre, 8440 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA, 90211. Doors: 7:30pm. Band “The Strawberry Alarm Clock” performing LIVE: 8:30pm. Show: 9:00pm.

In loving memory of beloved film critic Roger Ebert, Cinespia has partnered with The Cinefamily to host a screening of the Ebert-penned cult classic, Beyond The Valley of The Dolls, at the newly-restored 1930s Art Deco movie palace The Saban Theatre! Ebert’s passing in April reminded film fans everywhere of his prolific contributions to popular criticism, TV entertainment and film advocacy — but no tribute would be complete without a salute to Ebert the screenwriter as well, so we’ve got for you a rare archival 35mm print of the landmark 1970 Russ Meyer camp-tastic carnival of carnal freakouts. Plus, guest of honor Chaz Ebert will present “Siskel & Ebert” memories and outtakes, ‘60s psych rockers The Strawberry Alarm Clock will reunite to perform live, Beyond bombshell Erica Gavin and the film’s groovy music team Stu Phillips and Igo Kantor will be in-person, and we’ll have booze and dancing. It’s not just a tribute, it’s a HAPPENING!
Beyond The Valley of the Dolls Dir. Russ Meyer, 1970, 35mm, 110 min.

CO-PRESENTED BY THE GRINDHOUSE FILM FESTIVAL

“A wall-to-wall Lazy Susan of tits, ass and hilarity!” — John Waters

From the minds of Something Weird Video and Frank Henenlotter (director of not only such exploitation classics as Basket Case and Frankenhooker, but also the definitive doc Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore), it’s forty years’ worth of sex in the cinema. See rare and lost clips from vintage “adults-only” feature films, shocking short subjects, quaint coin-drop arcade loops, naughty stags and smokers, and graphic sex educationals from days gone by. Archival footage shows the many genres that developed over the decades: sex hygiene, drug scares, glamour, panties and pasties, pretty pin-ups, goona-goona exotica, nudist camp, striptease and burlesque, arthouse sinema, nudie cuties, roughies, sexy psychedelia and pre-hardcore white-coaters. Come trip the nip fantastic with us through this seldom-seen, salacious side of American film history. All ticketholders will receive original copies of the vintage sex-ed/sex-hygiene manual “The True Facts of Life,” sold in the ’40s and ’50s after screenings of the film The Wages Of Sin!
Dir. Frank Henenlotter, 2013, digital presentation, 136 min.

FATHER'S DAY MATINEE: Chaplin's "The Kid" & "A Dog's Life"

Charlie Chaplin classic for daddy day!
thekid_website2013
6/16/2013 - 2PM

In this perfect show for Father and Co., Cinefamily presents one of Charlie Chaplin’s milestone early features! In The Kid, the Tramp adopts an abandoned toddler (Jackie Coogan) whom he discovers in an alley, and raises him to become his sidekick in a variety of schemes and cons. Chaplin’s first feature-length directorial effort, The Kid is a moving and hilarious portrait of paternal love, or as the film’s first intertitle says, “A picture with a smile, and perhaps a tear…” As well, it’s the landmark work of genius in which Charlie the jester metamorphasized into Charlie the full-blooded actor, whose iconic dignity in the face of comic adversity made him one of our greatest cinematic treasures. Plus, we also have A Dog’s Life, the 1918 short that the presages The Kid, and features the Tramp’s sweet misadventures in the company of a young pup, who happily watches as Chaplin hides from the cops, taunts hard-faced gangster types, and tries to get the girl!
The Kid Dir. Charles Chaplin, 1921, 35mm, 68 min.
A Dog’s Life Dir. Charles Chaplin, 1918, 35mm, 33 min.

Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, oh my!

6/15/2013 - 7:45PM

Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, oh my! No stranger to the maligned and the misunderstood in the realm of cinema, Cinefamily is thrilled to now turn the lights up on one of our favorite musical dreamscapes — one traditionally scoffed at by critics, and dismissed by the fairweather flock: vintage progressive rock. To celebrate the publication of “Yes Is The Answer”, the first literary anthology devoted to prog rock’s legacy (featuring contributions by acclaimed novelists Rick Moody, Wesley Stace, Seth Greenland, Charles Bock, and Joe Meno, as well as musicians Nathan Larson and Peter Case), it’s a heady stew of rare 35mm prints, excerpted readings from the book by its authors, and video rarities up the wazoo. First up, the book’s local contributors read from their pieces, followed by killer footage of the bands in question — and then it’s onto the evening’s archival film prints: 1977’s sublime 45-minute Genesis: In Concert, filmed in expansive Cinemascope and unscreened in Los Angeles for decades — and 1983’s Kilroy Was Here, Styx’s 10-minute dystopian filmed “intro” to their worldwide tour of the same name. “Yes Is The Answer” is the first book that dares to thoughtfully reclaim prog rock as a subject worthy of serious consideration — so take a Topographic Journey into the 21st Century Schizoid land of Prog-Lit!
Genesis: Live Dir. Tony Maylam, 1977, 35mm, 45 min.
Kilroy Was Here Dirs. Brian Gibson & Jerry Kramer, 1983, 35mm, 10 min. (Archival print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive)

Ain't In It For My Health: A Film About Levon Helm (director in person!)

Filmmaker in person!

6/12/2013 - 7:30PM

“A captivating look at a musician hanging onto his art for dear life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“His is a story of survival, and singing in the face of death.” — Variety

“Listen, kids: long before Mumford & Sons grew out their facial hair and went digging for musical roots, there was the Band, who made a whole new thing out of old-time American music, even though they were 80% Canadian. Less an archival clip job than a late-night jam session, [‘Ain’t In It For My Health’] is informal and inviting.” — The New York Times

Filmmaker Jacob Hatley’s intimate documentary finds the late Levon Helm at home in Woodstock, NY, in the midst of creating his first studio album over two decades. Shot over the course of two-plus years, this highly anticipated film focuses in on the four-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member after his 2007 comeback album, “Dirt Farmer”, brought him back to the spotlight. Jacob Hatley in person for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Jacob Hatley, digital presentation, 83 min.
