Unicornucopia (feat. "The Last Unicorn" & "Legend"!)

The eager, heart-doodlin’ lil’ sister with orthodontic headgear in the household of Dark Crystals, Legends and Secret of NIMHs, The Last Unicorn sparkles like the glimmering rainbow trails of a young girl’s dreams in fabulous 35mm. This neo-folk feminist odyssey, animated by the Japanese group of artists that later became the Studio Ghibli of Princess Mononoke fame, hits all the major chords of a fondly remembered fantasy epic. Replete with songs by rock group America and featuring the voice talents of Mia Farrow, Jeff Bridges, Christopher Lee, Angela Lansbury and Alan Arkin, converge to create a viewing experience akin to staring at that trippy poster in your teenage squeeze’s bedroom after smokin’ yer best stash.
Dirs. Jules Bass & Arthur Rankin, Jr., 1982, 35mm, 84 min.

LEGEND – approx. 10:00pm
After the one-two knockout of Alien and Blade Runner>, director Ridley Scott continued his tradition of creating impossibly well-designed, hermetically-sealed worlds with this astounding visionary jaunt into the realms of the mythical, with unicorns (natch!) playing a central role in the balance of the universe. As the Lord of Darkness (Tim Curry, decked out in one of the most incredible prosthetic makeup jobs in fantasy film history) orders his goblin minions to snatch both princess Mia Sara (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) and the unicorn horns that keep the world in daylight, it’s up to Tom Cruise’s young forest-dweller to travel through the underworld and rescue them. Delivering some of the most iconic fantasy images of its era — thanks in part to the superb makeup effects work by The Thing’s Rob Bottin — Legend has remained a perennial favorite, with lush tones and expansive, imaginative vistas that can only best be witnessed on the big screen. 94-minute European theatrical cut!
Dir. Ridley Scott, 1985, 35mm, 94 min.
