PEEP SHOW: Opening Night: An Evening of Porn Chic (feat. Sexperiments Shorts Package +Through the Looking Glass)

Co-presented by Distribpix

Presenting sexperimental shorts and a rarely-if-ever-screened 35mm print of the X-rated supernatural horror film Through the Looking Glass (1976)…and to top it off, an exhibition of original, eye-popping sexploitation posters of the era, courtesy of Lethal Amounts Gallery!

Come dressed in your finest as we inaugurate our Peep Show series with a special opening night party and an evening of sophisticated sexy cinema for discerning adults, featuring some of the wildest and weirdest samplings of adult cinema’s golden era (1969-1981).

The foreplay begins with Sexperiments, a program of rare experimental shorts with luminaries like Gunvor Nelson and Constance Beeson and animators like Vince Collins, who employed a myriad of styles, from strobic overstimulation (Take Off) and haunting meditations on the human form (The Operation), to freaked-out comics of morphing genitalia (Desire Pie).

Then, after a break on the patio as we mingle, sip aphrodisiacal concoctions, sample some Art of Edibles cannabis chocolates, and view a special exhibit of rarely-seen vintage sexploitation movie posters, we return to a gorgeous, 35mm print of Through the Looking Glass—arguably the most artistically ambitious adult film this side of The Green Door—a phantasmagoric exploration of the taboo-laden secret fantasies and debaucheries of a heiress in her country manor, obsessed with her demon lover.

Join us on the patio prior to the films for a pre-reception of sexploitation posters, cocktails and cigarettes. Strict dress code: Evening attire only!

Sexy! Sounds! MEAN MR MUSTARD (from Funky Sole) DJ set tonight!

Through the Looking Glass: Dir. Jonas Middleton, 1976, 35mm, 91 min.
