“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.

Meeting People is Easy (encore!)

meetingpeopleiseasy011-640x420
6/25 - 10PM
$12/free for members

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.

“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.

Go Nightclubbing's SUICIDE LIVE (1980)

Suicide Live
6/28 - 10:30PM
$12/free for members

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!
