Go Nightclubbing's SUICIDE LIVE (1980)

Suicide Live
6/28/2017 - 10:30PM

Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New York’s nascent punk and no wave scenes. Armed with portapak cameras, they shot now legendary shows and on-camera interviews, including this amazing Suicide performance.

Conventional wisdom tells us that punk began in ‘75 or ‘76. Not for Suicide, a punk band since 1970. Innovators Alan Vega and Martin Rev put forth the model for the synth duos that went on to dominate the ‘80s – but with their own unmatched style and legendary use of drum machines, organs, and synths. Travel back in time with us for this SUICIDE LIVE show!

Meeting People is Easy (encore!)

meeting_people_is_easy2
6/27/2017 - 10:30PM

This summer marks 20 years since Radiohead unleashed their epochal art-rock masterpiece OK Computer on an unsuspecting world. Thom Yorke’s angst-laden lyrics painted a digitally disconnected age of unease marked by globalization, paranoia, and the wish that aliens would just take us away from it all (sounds about right). It’s precisely this mood of modern melancholy and isolation that documentarian Grant Gee expertly captured with Meeting People Is Easy, a cinematic counterpart so fitting it might as well be OK Computer: The Movie. Impressionistic and wildly experimental, Gee oscillates between film and digital, black & white and hyper-saturated color, double-exposure and time lapse, languid takes and stroboscopic editing to create an appropriately unnerving visualization of both the album’s themes and the band’s mental state. We get a fly-on-the-wall’s eye view as they dodge questions from journalists, hide out in hotel rooms, rehearse and undertake a recording session for an elusive (and still unreleased) song – all interspersed with incredible live performances and moments of naked candor.

Film preceded by a lovingly curated mix of vintage Radiohead favorites and rarities!

Dir. Grant Gee, 1998, 35mm, 99 min.

The House on Coco Road (with director Damani Baker in person)

House+on+Coco+Road+Press_+DAMANI
6/27/2017 - 7:30PM

“Grenada was a beacon of light for oppressed people all over the world.”
—Angela Davis

Set amidst the Grenada Revolution, The House on Coco Road follows one family’s flight from racial tensions in 1980’s Oakland, California, only to find themselves settled directly in the path of a U.S. military invasion in Grenada. First hand accounts from activists Angela Davis, Fania Davis and Fannie Haughton weave together director Damani Baker’s family portrait of utopic dreams, resistance and civil unrest with music composed by Grammy Award nominated luminary, Meshell Ndegeocello.

Dir. Damani Baker, 2016, DCP, 78 min.

Harold and Maude

harold and maude2
6/24/2017 - 7:30PM

“I don’t like to tell lies.” -Hal Ashby

In the words of Greg Proops, this is the movie we need right now: While Orange 45 confuses and depresses us with chaos and misrule, we can grab life by the neck and give it a big kiss. Harold is a young man who doesn’t want to live. Maude is an older woman who has a talent for living. They meet at a funeral and the fun begins there. The quirky and intelligent Hal Ashby (Being There, Coming Home) made a poignant, romantic film that wasn’t initially a hit but became the very definition of a cult classic. Written by Colin Higgins (9 to 5), Harold and Maude is an amazingly moving comedy about life, love, loss, and family. Maude is a cheerleader for living your life, doing her best to persuade the suicidal Harold of what is important: singing, not respecting authority, and running around the world like a mad person. Ruth Gordon is delightful and wise as Maude, and Bud Cort, for better or worse, defined his career with his brilliant take on the morbid Harold. Come down to the movies with your friend or date and have some popcorn and soda and laugh and cry goddammit. LIVE, LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.

Dir. Hal Ashby, 1971, 35mm, 91 min.

6/23/2017 - 7:30PM

With a set by DJ Jimi Hey of Dublab

Cinefamily Show & Tell invites artists, filmmakers, musicians, and other cultural heroes to divulge their deepest, darkest media obsessions by opening their closets, digging through their attics and plundering their garages to curate an evening of… whatever they want to share! From thrift store finds to late-night Tivo, from foreign film bootlegs to home movies, from the popular to the perverse — all media will be presented live by the honored guests, as they take us on a personal tour of the audio, video, and other ephemera that has inspired them, delighted them, or just plain freaked them out. This edition brings Martin Rev, one half of the legendary proto-punk band and synth duo Suicide – arguably the first band to call themselves “punk” and one of the most seminal bands of the 80s – whose influence is felt more than ever today. Come join us for this evening of rare clips, conversation, photos, fliers, and maybe even a classic drum machine.

Monterey Pop 50th Anniversary

020.tif
6/20/2017 - 7:30PM

Presented by Don’t Knock the Rock

50th Anniversary Release! New restoration from Janus Films.

The electric, magnetic, vital portrait of one of the most incredible musical lineups ever assembled — and the gold standard for all rock festival films! Produced by impresario Lou Adler and The Mamas And The Papas’ John Phillips, 1967’s Monterey International Pop Music Festival was the first of its kind, and featured career-making crossover moments for Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding — alongside equally shattering performances from The Who, Canned Heat, The Animals and a blissful Ravi Shankar. In Monterey Pop, director D.A. Pennebaker (fresh off the legendary Dylan doc Don’t Look Back) captures these landmark live sets intersecting with the very best of vintage peaceful California culture. Alongside the on-stage splendor of guitars and harmonies, Pennebaker’s roving cameras capture a host of vivid and stimulating eye candy amongst the throngs of festival-goers, also making the film an essential sociological document. With beautiful people, beautiful sounds and kaleidoscopic sights, Monterey Pop is an indispensable historical treasure — and a smashing good time.

6/20/2017 - 7PM

This show will take place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, located at 1345 W. 1st St, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Presented by Atlas Obscura and Science Friday

They’re quick, they’re clever, they’re masters of disguise and every year public radio program Science Friday dedicates a week to celebrating them. Cephalopod Week, Science Friday’s annual celebration of some of the smartest, most interesting invertebrates on Earth, is back for its fourth year, and Atlas Obscura, Science Friday, and The Cinefamily are teaming up to make it a total cephalo-party!

Join us for an evening of talk, tentacles, and underwater puppets, featuring four original short films from Science Friday at The Bob Baker Marionette Theater. This evening is a chance to rub elbows with SciFri Senior Producer Christopher Intagliata, and get a chance to see two brand-new SciFri short films and two classics from the SciFri vault, all about these amazing, adaptive, and sometimes creepy creatures.

One of the longest-running puppet theaters in the country, The Bob Baker Marionette Theater has been delighting, charming, and amazing people of all ages with its nearly 3,000 handmade marionettes for five decades. To celebrate Cephalopod Week, they’ll be performing an underwater sequence that has never before been showcased — part of Bob’s “Arabian Nights” show that was sadly never finished.

Kékszakállú

kekszakallu
6/17/2017 - 5PM

Presented by Acropolis Cinema

“A film whose every moment is the product of a nervous gamble, a young person’s search for a reason for being, and thus a beguiling mirror of its heroine’s journey.” – José Teodoro, Cinema Scope

A meandering portrait of several young girls, Gastón Solnicki’s Kékszakállú is a beautifully ephemeral palette of color and tones. In the intensely creative world of independent Argentine filmmaking, Solnicki occupies a unique place. A trained musician, he has jumped from films about music composition and performance (Süden) to reformulating his own family’s home movies (Papirosen) to this latest, a Bluebeard inspired, impressionistic coming-of-age nonpareil. It’s a mesmerizing string of photographically and architecturally inspired set pieces, held together by a soundtrack blasting with Bela Bartok’s electrifying opera, “Bluebeard’s Castle.” Kékszakállú (“Bluebeard” in Hungarian) isn’t about the notoriously bloodthirsty character, but rather the drama of young women’s departure from childhood. Narrative conceit aside, Kékszakállú is heavy with the allure of adolescence and gracefully matter-of-fact in regards to its accompanying losses.

Dir. Gastón Solnicki, 2016, DCP, 72 min.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me

fire walk with me
6/14/2017 - 10:30PM

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me rates as one of Lynch’s most shattering works, a true horror film that shocks and haunts the viewer long after the final frame. Following the secret, sordid life of golden girl Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) as she descends into drug-fueled madness due to years of abuse at the hands of her possibly possessed father (an incredible Ray Wise), the film eschews much of the show’s lighter touches for hysteria and terror – a choice that suits the dark roads leading to Laura’s inevitable outcome. Surrealistic flourishes abound, brought on in part by Laura’s chemically-induced mania but also as mythology elements, like the infamous Black Lodge – a disembodied location where strange characters deliver cryptic messages to future hero Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan). Aside from the cast regulars the film also features cameos from Lynch himself, crooner Chris Isaak and a particularly bizarre and wonderful turn from the late great David Bowie.

According to Lynch himself, a refresher-viewing of Fire Walk With Me is highly recommended before indulging in Twin Peaks Season 3…

The Phantom Carriage w/ live accompaniment by Matti Bye

phantomcarriage_website
6/7/2017 - 7:30PM

Featuring accompaniment by pianist and composer Matti Bye!

A gorgeous liquid nightmare of a movie, the dark Swedish masterpiece The Phantom Carriage is still, over ninety years since its release, nothing short of shocking. Filmed in 1920 and released the following New Year’s Day, this story of a girl’s dying wish to redeem one troubled man’s soul remains one of the most sumptuously shot and technically accomplished films ever made, silent or otherwise. Years before the availability of the optical printer, director/star Victor Sjöström utilized painstakingly timed hand-cranked cameras and intricate edits to execute its flashbacks-within-flashbacks and countless double exposures — lending this ghost story a haunting, vivid dimension, from the otherworldly and familiar specter of Death to the chilling Swedish landscape that exists as its own character. As well, it has the distinction of originating an immeasurable number of elements throughout cinematic history, from The Seventh Seal’s hooded Reaper to Nicholson’s axe-wielding rampage in The Shining. It’s no wonder that Ingmar Bergman called it “the film of all films,” and watched it at least once a year following his first viewing at age fifteen. It’s a film that elevated its medium to heights it still, to this day, only rarely attains.

Dir. Victor Sjöström, 1921, DCP, 104 min.

Dr. Katz: The Audio Files Live!

960
6/6/2017 - 8PM

Presented by Audible Comedy

When the beloved, Squigglevision-animated Dr. Katz aired its final episode in 1999 – after six memorable and amazing seasons – we were all left with comedy abandonment complexes. And maybe we’re projecting, but Dr. Katz was more than a comedy therapist to us; with his soft-spoken and laid back wit, empathetic spirit and kind humour, he was also one of the best TV dads around. Well, he’s back and ready to heal our wounds and renew our entertainment attachments, with a new audio series on Audible – the perfect format for his musical cadence and dry improvisational stylings. It’s Dr. Katz: The Audio Files – and we’re lucky enough to record one live here at Cinefamily, with Jonathan Katz, Laura Silverman, and 5 very special celebrity patients!

VIP Tickets include priority seating. Purchase them here.

Jackass Number Two

jackass 2
6/4/2017 - 10:30PM

Jean-Luc Godard wrote of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Wrong Man, “the subject of this film lies less in the unexpectedness of events than in their probability.” He might as well have been writing on the opening scene in Jackass Number Two – in which Chris Pontius slips a mouse costume over his genitals, then feeds it through a glory hole into a snake-filled tank. Or when Bam Margera sketches a stunt involving Wee Man jumping off a bridge whilst tied to Preston Lacy with a bungee cord. Or even when Steve-O runs a fish hook through his cheek and dives into shark-infested waters. Though the gross-out factor puts Jackass Number Two closer to De Palma than Hitch, this sequel’s true modus operandi is to up the ante Gremlins 2 or Magic Mike XXL-style; it’s ruthlessly funny, expertly paced, and so uncompromising in its vision of reckless asininity that it approaches an almost pure cinema.

Dir. Jeff Tremaine, 2006, 35mm, 92 min.

Jackass: The Movie

Jackass The Movie (1)
6/4/2017 - 8PM

Charlie Chaplin-via-Slayer; low-budget exploitation suspense on a skateboard; The French Connection made by morons; or, for Richard Roeper, the “feel-sick movie of the year.” Jackass feels just as delectably twisted and abhorrent today as it did in 2002 – a primal scream of pointless white-boy idiocy whose influence is felt in everything from Ali G to Odd Future to The Eric Andre Show. A long-player version of MTV’s hit TV show, Jackass follows Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Wee Man, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn and company (partially assembled from affiliates of Big Brother magazine) as they dive into alligator-infested waters, crash golf carts, affix muscle stimulators to genitals; and defecate in public, amongst other hilarious, repellant, utterly enrapturing stunts. It’s also a time capsule, a document of The Wild Bunch of skateboarding riding the irrationally exuberant 1990′s straight to hell. Co-starring Rip Taylor, Mat Hoffman, Spike Jonze, Henry Rollins, and Tony Hawk.

Dir. Jeff Tremaine, 2002, 35mm, 87 min.

Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine (Free sneak peek!)

Paulo Diaz Big Brother Magazine
6/3/2017 - 8PM

Jeff Tremaine, Sean Cliver, Patrick O’Dell, and Rick Kosick in person!

When maverick skateboard company owner Steve Rocco kept having his controversial ads rejected by the prominent skateboard magazines in 1992, he did the next logical thing: create his own magazine to publish anything he wanted. Founded on being censorship-free in a time before the internet, Big Brother went on to gain cult notoriety for its irreverent, naughty, and blatantly stupid content.

Told through present-day interviews and archival footage – much of which has never been seen before – Dumb is a look back at the story of Big Brother and the dysfunctional family of misfits – including Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, Chris Pontius, and Steve-O – that eventually outgrew the pages and home videos of the magazine to give birth to MTV’s Jackass, forever leaving a smear on pop culture. A Hulu Original Documentary.

The film will be accompanied by an exhibition in our Looking Garden Gallery – featuring works by Big Brother Magazine photo editor Rick Kosick, original ephemera, magazines, and more. On view through Sunday, June 4th.

Dir. Patrick O’Dell, 2017, DCP, 79 min.
