Terminator 2: Judgment Day (archival 35mm print!) ENCORE SHOW

The most killer action movie of the Nineties!
terminator2_website
3/27/2013 - 9:35PM

It’s hard to fathom that the most mega-important, killer action film of its era is a rare thing to partake in, theatrically speaking — but that’s exactly the case these days with Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Get set to enjoy this marvel of modern whizz-bangery from an archival 35mm print! Most of the time, sequels suck. With full knowledge of this inexorable fact, and with the experience of Aliens’ terrifying awesomeness under his belt, James Cameron didn’t just create a carbon copy of 1984’s The Terminator — he upped the ante through the roof and into the heavens for T2, raising the bar for action movies the world over, and pioneering the usage of a unequivocally game-changing method of SFX in the process. In a genius role reversal, Cameron posits Schwarzenegger as the good guy, leaving the villain slot open for an astounding Robert Patrick, who portrays one of cinema’s most perfect embodiment of nightmare-fodder clinical evil. Just about every single thing about T2 still holds up; come experience it again with us.
Dir. James Cameron, 1991, 35mm, 139 min.

You Know, For Kids: A Middle East Tour Film w/ The Black Lips and Lazzy Lung (sneak preview!)

Director and band members in person!

3/25/2013 - 8PM

After two years of planning and tremendous changes throughout the region, the Black Lips’ tour of the Middle East finally came to fruition in the fall of 2012, but it wasn’t easy: promoters in Jordan and Egypt backed out because the band had just played in Israel, and a show in Iraq had to be changed at the last minute when an explicit band video was viewed by a government official. You Know, For Kids documents this journey through one of the most exciting regions in the world, including three groundbreaking stops in Egypt (the last known American rock band to play in that country being The Grateful Dead in 1978!) Get on the bus with The Black Lips and their friends, Lebanese indie rockers Lazzy Lung. See the people of the Middle East the way they really are: shopkeepers and restaurant owners, skaters, graffiti artists and musicians, revolutionaries and dreamers. Kids like you and us. You’ll never look at the Middle East the same way again. Director and Black Lips band members in person — plus, Cole Alexander will DJ after the film!
Dir. Bill Cody, 2013, digital presentation, 81 min.

Searching For Sugar Man

Oscar winner for Best Documentary Feature

3/14/2013 - 7:30PM

Winner of the Best Documentary Feature Oscar just a few short weeks ago, Searching For Sugar Man comes to the Cinefamily screen in a 35mm presentation! The truly outstanding, totally engrossing yarn of a long-lost folk rock legend suddenly found! In 1968, there emerged a charismatic Detroit singer/songwriter named Rodriguez, who attracted a local following with his mysterious presence, soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. A Chicano Bob Dylan, Rodriguez was the greatest ’70s icon who never was, but his debut album was a commercial disaster, marking the premature decline of his career — and the widespread rumors of his suicide. Years later, in South Africa (of all places), Rodriguez’s musical message connected with an entire generation of liberal youth totally at odds with Apartheid. Upon the belated CD release of his second LP, two South African fans take it as a sign to look into the mystery of how Rodriguez died, and what happened to all of the profits from his album sales. Thus begins a wild obstacle ride documented in this heartbreaking, humorous, shocking and hopeful story about the resonating, life-changing power of music.
Dir. Malik Bendjellou, 2012, 35mm, 85 min.

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (restored 35mm print, 3/12, 7:45pm)

Restored 35mm print!

3/12/2013 - 7:45PM

“With every passing interval of time — and that’s what the film is about, after all — it seems to have become more profound. You could say that it’s the epic of an ordinary life. And what you retain from this epic is an overpowering sense of warmth and love and friendship, of shared humor and tenderness, and a lasting impression of the most eloquent sadness.” — Martin Scorsese

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s epic satire still feels (in the best way) like the most British film ever made — a sprawling melange of propriety and profundity, packaged with a Technicolor elegance and bone-dry humor not replicated before or since. Dashing Powell/Pressburger mainstay Roger Livesey plays General Clive Wynne-Candy, in an epic feature-length flashback exploring forty years of his life’s most charged chapters: political and personal intrigues both lofty and cartoonish, along with Zhivago-scale loves and longings. The stunning, incandescent Deborah Kerr (The King And I) plays the multiple roles of the three most impactful women in Candy’s decades-long journey — from feisty neophyte to stiff-upper-lipped WWII vet. Witnessing Kerr’s chameleonic shifting is one of the most delightful elements in a film packed to the brim with cinematic virtuosity: depictions of wartime take on the scope of a funhouse-mirror Eisenstein, while intimate emotional interplays between the film’s love triangle take on the gravity of an eloquent chamber piece. In the hands of Powell & Pressburger, the subjects addressed are elevated to a nuanced, grand and comical symphony — and one that’s a true pleasure to witness. Restored 35mm print!
Dirs. Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger, 1943, 35mm, 163 min.

Miami Connection (March 9th)

Proof that God exists!

3/9/2013 - 11PM

“Awesome & proof that God exists…A Psychotronic Masterpiece!” — Ain’t It Cool News

“Hilarious Yet Oddly Touching, Goofy, Yet Totally Sincere, This Is One Of The Most Entertainingly Bizarre Movies I’ve Ever Seen.” — Matt Singer, Screencrush

“Miami Connection has repeatedly destroyed our audience in a more powerful way than anything else in the 15 years of our theater’s existence.” – Zack Carlson, Alamo Drafthouse

There are films that we save for a rainy day — and, baby, it’s fucking pouring! The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice in the streets of Orlando, Florida. Directed by 9th-degree black belt philosopher/author/inspirational speaker Grandmaster Y.K. Kim, Miami Connection is pretty much the most entertaining film you will ever see. EVER. Be there.
Dir. Richard Park, 1987, 90 min.

Heart Of Darkness (feat. live sets by Reggie Watts, Greg Barris and more!)

A staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene, Greg Barris is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that just recently had its 20th sold-out show in a row, at Union Hall in Brooklyn!  Heart Of Darkness has been a frequent TimeOut New York critic’s pick, and has also been hailed by the Village Voice and the New Yorker as well — and BrooklynVegan calls it “NYC’s most awe-inspiring comedy/variety/brainz shows.”  Tonight’s show features live music/video/comedy and insight from Reggie Watts, Everything is Terrible!, Rory Scovel, Kate Berlant and Greg Barris, plus other special things.  Bring a sin and be forgiven.

Primer (encore screening!)

Encore of indie time travel marvel!

3/3/2013 - 7:45PM

“In one way, we have Abe1, Abe2(from Feb), and Abe2(from March) — perhaps it becomes easier to call Abe2(from Feb), Abe3. Recently, I started to refer to Abe3 as Abe2a, and Abe2(from March) as Abe2b. Thus Aaron2 in March is really Aaron2b. This is mind-numbing.” — The Primer Universe

Science fiction (the good kind, anyway) is based on a beautiful river of “what-ifs.” Here’s one: what if Robert Zemeckis had a degree in mathematics and was a former engineer? Would he have made a film like Primer, which treats time travel with total realism, hewing closely both to the physics behind it and the actual culture of technological advancement? Because that’s what, on a budget of only $7,000, director Shane Carruth did, as well as serving as writer, editor, star and composer as well. Dedicated to portraying scientific advancement the way it really happens — in the garages of engineers, after the formal work day is done — Primer didn’t just blow minds, it short-circuited them as they tried to follow the intricacy of its unprecedentedly accurate portrayal of the implications of what it would really be like to travel through time. Awarded the 2004 Sundance Grand Jury Prize, Primer has steadily built a devoted, if bewildered, cult following ever since.
Dir. Shane Carruth, 2004, 35mm, 77 min.
