DARK SHADOWS
Dir. Tim Burton
5/11
Tim Burtons highly anticipated flm adaptation of the long-running vampire
soap opera is fnally upon us! Johnny Depp plays Barnabas Collins, a vampire
imprisoned for centuries who, once freed, returns to his ancestral estate and
embroils himself in the complicated lives of his descendants. The show was a
dark, twisted masterpiece, and Burton is taking everything that was glorious about
the series and adding a welcome dash of bright, wry humor. With an outstanding
supporting cast consisting of Eva Green, Michelle Pfeifer, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe
Grace Moretz and Helena Bonham Carter, DARK SHADOWS is a fun, stylish tribute to
one of the most popular television series of all time. (Meredith Borders)
NEW RELEASES
SOUND OF MY VOICE
Dir. Zal Batmanglij
5/4
SOUND OF MY VOICE was a huge hit at both the Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals,
and it was named the Top Indie Film at 2011 Festivals by IndieWire. And now you
can see it at the Alamo! Peter and Lorna are a documentary team and couple who
infltrate a mysterious cult whose enigmatic leader says she is from the future. As
the two work from the inside to expose her secrets, they begin to question their
motives and their loyalty to one another as the tension quickly escalates. Star Brit
Marling also wrote the tense and intelligent flm. SOUND OF MY VOICE proves to be
a dark, thrilling intrigue. (Meredith Borders)
MOONRISE KINGDOM
MOONRISE KINGDOM
Dir. Wes Anderson
6/8
Patriarch of elegant quirk Wes Anderson is back with MOONRISE KINGDOM, a
flm for young lovers. Suzy and Sam fall in love and run away together, and the
small New England island where they live is tossed into turmoil as a search party
mobilizes to fnd them. Starring Anderson troupe regulars Bill Murray and Jason
Schwartzman along with Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and
Harvey Keitel, MOONRISE KINGDOM is a charming 60s romp awash in Andersons
unconventional style. (Meredith Borders)
THE AVENGERS
Dir. Joss Whedon
5/4
Avengers Assemble! At last, after years of fervent anticipation, we can all
commence with fully unfettered geeking. A team of Earths Mightiest Heroes is
here to save us from cinematic drudgery, led by Team Captain (okay, or writer/
director) Joss Whedon, a man who knows his way around both a comic book and
a witty script. THE AVENGERS gathers superheroes from the best Marvel movies of
the past few years: Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris
Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black
Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and introducing Mark Rufalos brand new
take on The Incredible Hulk. The trailer is spectacular. The cast is phenomenal.
Joss Whedon is in charge! I fnd it impossible to believe that this movie will be
anything less than brain-meltingly transcendent. Get excited. THE AVENGERS are
coming. (Meredith Borders)

MAGIC MIKE
Dir. Steven Soderbergh
6/29
At last! The long-awaited-by-me male stripper ensemble has arrived! Soderbergh
delivers the goods with this flm about a rookie exotic dancer who learns the
ropes under the tutelage of his veteran colleagues. Starring the abs and talent
of pretty boys Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer
and Joe Manganiello, I have only to ask what took Hollywood so long to ofer this
abundance of naked handsomeness to its loyal fans. (Meredith Borders)
G.I. JOE: RETALIATION
Dir. Jon M. Chu
6/29
Who wouldve thought that the trailer for the sequel to G.I. JOE would make such
waves? But with exploding motorcycles, tons of practical action sequences, a
Cobra-commanded White House, the addition of The Rock and a ridiculously
exciting reveal of the great Bruce Willis, this movie looks much, much more badass
than it needs to be. Directed with typical style and verve by Jon M. Chu (STEP UP
2 and 3, NEVER SAY NEVER) and starring a spectacularly action pedigreed cast, G.I.
JOE: RETALIATION might just be the most exciting movie coming out this summer.
(Meredith Borders)
PROMETHEUS
Dir. Ridley Scott
6/8
Ridley Scott is the master of horror science fction, and while PROMETHEUS may
not be an ofcial prequel to his brilliant and seminal ALIEN, fans know that this is
the flm weve been waiting a very long time to see. In the late 21st century, a team
of explorers discovers a star map that proves to be a clue to humanitys origins.
The crew of the spaceship Prometheus are led on a dark journey that takes them
to the furthest reaches of the universe where they must fght a horrifc war - and
the future of mankind rests on the outcome. Starring a tremendously talented cast
(Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba) and
co-written by Damon Lindelof (LOST), PROMETHEUS is an imperative. (Meredith
Borders)
BRAVE
Dir. Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman
6/22
Pixars latest is a wonder, a bright and stunning adventure epic for movie lovers
of any age. Wildly-tressed Scottish Princess Merida fghts to buck convention and
forge her own way in life, bringing pandemonium to her kingdom. She must rely on
her wits, courage and strength to undo a terrible curse and restore balance to her
home. Starring the voice talents of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson and Kevin
McKidd, BRAVE delivers a ferce new heroine, breathtaking visuals and a thrilling
journey. (Meredith Borders)

Austin City Limits Presents
JOHNNY CASH 80TH BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE
RZ 5/14
He may be gone, but The Man in Black is far from forgotten. The man, the myth,
the legend, the one and only JOHNNY MUTH@F*#%IN CASH would have been 80
years old this year. To celebrate this momentous occasion, our friends at Austin
City Limits are presenting a roaring Birthday Tribute Show featuring Johnny Cash
and the Carter Familys full, uncut 1987 performance on ACL. Its one Cash himself
considered to be one of his fnest TV performances, and includes renditions of such
mega-classics as I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, and Folsom Prison Blues, plus
tons of other rarities and highlights like a duet with wife June (Where Did We go
Right?), a heart-breaking cover of John Prines Sam Stone, and a crowd-pleasing
version of the cowboy anthem Ghost Riders in the Sky. Essential viewing for
Johnny Cash fans of all degrees.
All proceeds beneft HAAM, the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians.
ICONOCLAST
Dir. Larry Wessel, 2010, NR, 233 min
RZ 5/7
Boyd Rice may well be the only person alive whos been on a frst name basis
with both Charlie Manson and Marilyn Manson. His career has spanned more than
three decades, during which time he has remained at the epicenter of culture and
controversy. Rice frst came to prominence in the 70s as one of the pioneers of
the industrial music, gaining a reputation for live shows that were deemed the
most abrasive, minimalist, and loudest concerts ever staged (his shows regularly
clocked in at 130 decibels -- about a dozen louder than your average jet plane
taking of). As early as 1980, he was already hailed as the Godfather of Noise
Music. Since then, Rice has extended his creative pursuits to numerous felds,
even lecturing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology despite being a high
school dropout. Six years in the making and clocking in a nearly four hours(!),
ICONOCLAST is flmmaker Larry Wessels in-depth, kaleidoscopic examination of
the life, career, and obsessions of this perpetually fascinating, often disturbing,
and uniquely American artist. Screens in three parts with short intermissions
between each section.

ANDREW BIRD FEVER YEAR
Dir. Xan Aranda, 2011, NR, 80 min
RZ 6/25
Filmed during the culminating months of the acclaimed singer-songwriters
most rigorous year of touring, Andrew Bird crosses the December fnish line in
his hometown of Chicago feverish and on crutches from an onstage injury. Is he
sufering hazards from chasing the ghost of inspiration? Or merely transforming
into a diferent kind of animal perfectly adapted to the music hall? FEVER YEAR
is the frst to capture Birds precarious multi-instrumental looping technique and
features live performances at Milwaukees Pabst Theater with collaborators Martin
Dosh, Jeremy Ylvisaker, Michael Lewis and Annie Clark of St. Vincent.
MUSIC MONDAY
MYSTERY TRAIN
Dir. Jim Jarmusch, 1989, R, 110 min, 35mm
RZ 6/11 & 6/18
Man, itd be so cool to have Jim Jarmuschs life. Youd get that awesome white-
before-your-time, impeccably high pompadour. Youd get to go around smoking
cigarettes and occasionally playing in bands -- you know, just when you feel like
it. Youd be into everything way before it was hip. And every fve years or so to
make your living youd get to make a hyper-cool movie with all the awesome
actors and musicians you know, like this hyper-cool indie gem that follows three
sets of intersecting stories of those adrift in Memphis, Tennessee. Its a tribute to
the city thats home to Stax, Sun Studio, Graceland, and The King himself, Elvis
Presley, all done in high Jarmusch-ian style: witty, laconic, and beautifully shot
(thanks to cinematographer Robby Mller), and featuring a veritable roundup of
cool-ass musician types like the Clashs Joe Strummer, the late-great Screamin
Jay Hawkins, and even Tom Waits as an unseen disc jockey.
TRAINSPOTTING
RZ 5/21 & 5/28
Dir. Danny Boyle, 1996, R, 94 min, 35mm
Before he gave us movies about slumdogs and James Franco being stuck between
a rock and an amputation, director Danny Boyle gave the world TRAINSPOTTING,
arthouse sensation of 1996 -- and quite possibly right behind PULP FICTION as
one of the most infuential movies of that decade in the style and soundtrack
departments. Adapted from Irvine Welshs acclaimed novel, its a cheeky, grimy tale
of young and (mostly) handsome Scottish heroin addicts who basically just dont
give a toss about growing up to live boring middle class lives. And they like Lou
Reed. A lot. With its blend of frenetic comedy and skin-crawling horror (plunging
into flthy toilets! Wall crawling dead babies!), TRAINSPOTTING is not quite an ode
to junkies nor a preachy cautionary tale of drugs and ruin but rather some other
diferent and far more entertaining cinematic animal. Thats thanks in no small part
to the flms soundtrack, which, so loaded with choice cuts -- from Iggy Pop (Lust
for Life, Nightclubbing), to the aforementioned Lou Reed (Perfect Day), to 90s
Brit Pop (Blur, Elastica, Pulp) -- it became as much a breakout star as the flms
impossibly young and skinny lead actor: Ewan McGregor.
STUNT ROCK
Dir. Brian Trenchard-Smith, 1980, PG, 86 min, 35mm
RZ 6/4
Sometimes a movie captures the imagination of a generation. And no movie has
ever summed up the trashy yet vibrant polyester generation of the late 70s like
STUNT ROCK, a nitro-glycerin cocktail of suicide-level stuntwork and amazingly
awful mullet-rock. The band Sorcery, featured prominently throughout the
movie, pulls hilariously terrible song after song out of their size 15 Wizard Hat.
Meanwhile, we are treated to a documentary-style journey through the adventures
of badass stuntman Grant Page, who literally has no fear of anything at all -- as
he demonstrates conclusively throughout this movie. Youll see Grant set on fre,
attacked by jungle cats, blown up with TNT, hurtled over countless clifs and more.
It probably sounds like the cheesiest movie ever made and in some ways it is, after
all the band Sorcery has not one but two Wizards in their stage show, but the overall
efect is of total exhilaration and that kind of convulsive laughter that comes from
the deepest part of your gut.

BLOOD DINER
Dir. Jackie Kong, 1987, R, 88 min, 35mm
RZ 5/15
Two brothers are guided by the disembodied brain of their favorite occult uncle to
fnd a virgin and prepare a blood bufet to raise cannibal goddess Sheetar! This is
one of the most all-out bonkers gore flms of the video age. The death scenes are
wholly creative: a nude woman is rubbed in batter and deep-fried before being
decapitated, topless cheerleaders are shot to hell by a man in a Reagan mask, and
a cavorting young couple are speared mid-hump by a falling stalactite. At Club
Dread, punks slam to Austin band Dino Lee & the White Trash Revue. The singer
sports a gargantuan pompadour, ladies with blue wigs dance on stage, and all of
this is backed by a band of Nazi musicians. Zaaamm! The plot is basically (and
intentionally) the 60s classic BLOOD FEAST with an overdose-level injection of 80s
insanity. Dammit, whats NOT in this movie...with its kung-fu nudity, ventriloquist
fry cooks, wrestling Hitlers and mambo-induced car fatalities? Hey, Jackie Kong!
Come out of your hiding place, make some more perfect movies and save us all
from this worthless modern world! (Bryan Connolly, BLOOD DINER fan # 1)
BLOOD DINER
MIRACLE MILE
Dir. Steve De Jarnatt, 1988, R, 87 min, 35mm
RZ 5/8
SELECTED BY SPECIAL GUEST CO-HOST SAM McPHEETERS in celebration of the
release of his brilliant new novel THE LOOM OF RUIN! Its no news that the end
of the world will start in Hollywood. In fact, any sane person whos shelled out
to watch a studio movie in the past few years would love to see that city collapse
in a heap of blood and agony. MIRACLE MILE ofers said thrill, positioning it atop
a chillingly believable geyser of paranoia, rage and animalism. Lovable goofwad
Anthony Edwards stumbles across a ringing pay phone which informs him that
hes 40 minutes shy of a nuclear holocaust. The mounting terror efectively unfolds
in real time, as he clumsily panics across the city in a gallant but idiotic attempt
to rescue his girlfriend (Mare Winningham) from total global annihilation. This
cinematic display of mankinds base nature is the most ice-cold assault on the
nervous system that youll ever endure. But at least we know that when events
like these actually DO go down, our souls will all pass over into a beautiful, serene
afterlife. Aint that right, Tooth Fairy? (Zack)
DONT GO IN THE HOUSE
Dir. Joseph Ellison, 1980, R, 82 min, 35mm
RZ 5/1
The dawn of the 1980s saw mankind taking huge strides forward in technology,
discovery and misogyny. Like SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, this flm is built on a
seething disdain for nubile femininity, flled with powerless, tormented female
characters...and written by a woman! But that isnt to say that the other 3.5 billion
of us get away easy. Donny (Dan Grimaldi) is an emotionally stunted nutzoid shut-in
who witnesses the fatal burning of a co-worker AND his mothers death in a single
afternoon. Where most people would be bogged down in revulsion and self-pity,
our plucky hero enjoys his newfound No-Rules domestic freedom by jumping on
the sofa and building a stainless steel freproof bunker. Once its completed, Donny
heads of to the local disco to bring home some giggling, fammable houseguests.
What follows is nauseating, reprehensible and excessively entertaining. (Zack)

EVILSPEAK
Dir. Eric Weston, 1981, R, 89 min, 35mm
RZ 5/29
WEEK 2 OF OUR SATAN CELEBRATION! Its a well known fact that computers are
Lucifers Weapon of Mass Destruction in his continuing battle against the human
race. But at the apex of mankinds evolution (a.k.a. 1981), ol Beelzebub needed
only a Commodore 64 and dot-matrix printer to unleash an apocalyptic storm
of demonic possession and extermination. Legendary character actor Clint
Howard (THE ICE CREAM MAN; THE WRAITH) stars in this harrowing, vicious tale
of tortured military school dweeb Stanley. When pushed to the brink of human
endurance by his bullying classmates and drunken, rape-crazy elderly janitor (Im
gonna show you how I turn little boys into little GIRLS!), Stanley allies with an
electronic incarnation of The Dark Lord to level the playing feld. Featuring blazing
decapitations, fountainous gore, man-eating Hell-hogs and enough clergical
dismemberment and digital anti-Christian imagery to forever reinforce the fact
that Jesus Christ is a goddamn wimp. Hail Satan slash sideways smiley face dot
wink. (Zack)
EQUINOX
Dir. Jack Woods, 1970, NR, 80 min, 35mm
RZ 5/22
THE SATANO-SUPERNATURAL BLASTERPIECE THAT SPAWNED THE EVIL DEAD SERIES!!
God may have more money, but Satan knows how to party. The shamefully
underseen EQUINOX proves that forcefelds, towering neon-blue behemoths,
transdimensional castles, misshapen cavemen, tendriled beasts and sinister
forest rangers are Lucifers sharpest tools in his 24-7 war against mankind. Four
picnicking students stumble across a malevolent occult tome that tears a rift into
the demon world, unleashing impossible creatures as our hapless protagonists
bumble towards a vicious confrontation with the Prince of Darkness himself! This
rampagingly innovative feature was clearly the inspiration for EVIL DEAD and - as
far as Im concerned - CITIZEN KANE and every movie ever made, before it or since.
No other low-budget horror movie has even attempted the brazen onslaught of
hell-fueled nightmare fantasies that youll see here, much of which is stop motion
wizardry provided by the future Oscar-winning efects artist of STAR WARS. If hed
instead stuck with movies this good, maybe he could sleep at night. (Zack)
TERROR TUESDAY
DEMONS 2
Dir. Lamberto Bava, 1986, R, 91 min, 35mm
RZ 6/12
Following the rabid/confused reaction to last years DEMONS screening, it seems
only right to reignite the fres of Hell, Italy with a screening of the equally
vicious sequel. Always a bold innovator, director Bava takes his second entry
into uncharted territory, exchanging an apartment building for the frst flms
movie theater setting...and besides that its kinda pretty much the same. A
hyperspeed demonplague spreads through an upper class highrise, laying waste
to the overpaid Caucasian occupants in a frenzied hurricane of cannibalism, acidic
spewed bile and supernaturally spawned homicidal wrath. If anyone can fgure out
how we could get something like this started in downtown Austin, youd sure be
doing our city a tremendous service. (Zack)
NEVER TOO YOUNG TO DIE
Dir. Gil Bettman, 1986, R, 92 min, 35mm
RZ 6/5
It may not be a horror movie exactly, but it is THE BEST MOVIE YOULL SEE
ANYWHERE...EVER. Gene Simmons (yes, that guy from Kiss with the long tongue)
is Velvet von Ragnar, a supervillainous hermaphrodite overlord bent on world
domination. Following the death of his heroic nemesis, Ragnar and his/her army
of feral new wave warriors seem destined for victory. That is, until private school
acrobat Lance Stargrove (John Stamos!) teams up with former Prince ingenue
Vanity to bring down Ragnars genitally-overdriven domination empire! See Stamos
kickbox a mohawked bodybuilder named Pyramid! See Gene Simmons perform
a sultry cabaret act in a lace teddy! This crippled epic is a fooring example of
defantly defective action flmmaking. Not only does it require nothing from its
audience, actors or crew, but it compels you to punch a hole in your forehead,
remove your brain and set it on fre in a celebration of unbridled 12-year-old
adrenaline, as every creative standard is compromised in the name of undiluted
entertainment. NEVER TOO YOUNG TO DIE, I want you inside me. (Zack)
SAVAGE STREETS
Dir. Danny Steinmann, 1984, R, 93 min, 35mm
RZ 6/26
Nothings more satisfying than shooting someone in the dick with a crossbow.
Especially if theyve beaten your deaf-mute sister into a coma and thrown your
pregnant friend of a freeway overpass. Weve all been there, and Linda Blair was
right there with us, suited up in a skintight leather jumpsuit and stacking up lowlife
corpses like ham on a deli tray. At a moment in history when antisocial cinema
had seemingly reached its zenith, SAVAGE STREETS burst forward to obliterate
any remaining humanity in a torrid vigilante eruption of back alley brutality and
unredeemable flth. This amped-up 80s revenge fantasy is grimier than a winos
tongue and twice as hard to swallow; a squalid, emotionally involving feature that
- despite Blairs wardrobe - evokes scum rather than lurid sleaze. As with the eras
other fne, penis-shriveling anti-sexploitation flms (ANGEL; VICE SQUAD), the only
thing aroused here will be your suicidal impulse. (Zack)
NECROPOLIS: CITY OF THE DEAD
Dir. Bruce Hickey, 1987, R, 77 min, 35mm
RZ 6/19
New Amsterdam: 1686. An albino woman in black spandex achieves eternal life
by doing aerobics in front of a pentagram. 300 years later, she rips through the
streets of Manhattan atop a red motorcycle; her spiked platinum hair and studded
gauntlets whistling in the wind as she hunts for The Devils Ring. After failing to
entrap a Catholic priest, she retires to her apartment to try out some seductive
new wave dance moves. The pasty witch telepathically enters a teenage boy and
makes him say a swear word. Eventually, she calls a congregation of her undead
followers and grows four extra nipples to feed them family-style. Its moments
like this that make a not-necessarily-spectacular cinematic mess grind its stiletto
heels into your memory. Lead actress LeeAnne Baker displays false breasts but
real conviction. While researching for this write-up, I was surprised/depressed to
learn that Id accidentally seen all seven titles in her flmography. Whoops. (Zack)

THE APPLE
VICE SQUAD
Dir. Gary Sherman, 1982, R, 97 min, 35mm
RZ 5/9
A highly recommended descent into the sulfurous pit of hell known as Hollywood.
Former soap star and crooner Wings Hauser burst onto the exploitation scene
with his intense, over-the-top performance as the psychotic killer pimp Ramrod.
Seething and ranting, a homicidal twisted nerve, Hauser is incredible. This is
his show all the way, he even sings the theme song Neon Slime! Along the
way, Hauser jumps the fence from villain into full-on monster territory, making
VICE SQUAD not only one of the most exciting flms youll ever see, but one of
the scariest as well. In this truly grim urban fairy tale, a hooker named Princess
(Season Hubley) must make it through a long night in a very dark forest (the
streets of L.A.) without being gobbled up by the big bad wolf (Hauser), who himself
is being chased by the mighty hunter (the LAPD detective who earlier allowed him
to escape.) Pure, sleazed-out entertainment. (Lars)
EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK
Dir. Joe DAmato, 1976, R, 87 min, 35mm
RZ 5/2
The last time we showed a Black Emanuelle movie the audience got so jacked-
up on pure excitement that we had to use tranquilizer darts and a stun gun to
clear the theater afterwards. Two hundred plus patrons stood up in their seats and
howled for more. Well here you are, you animals! You wanted more Laura Gemser
movies you got it. Lets just hope your endocrine systems can take it this time.
EMANUELLE IN BANGKOK is one of the many egregious ripofs of Just Jaeckins
insanely proftable Emmanuelle flms (note the slightly diferent spelling). Most
of these semi-legal BLACK EMANUELLE flms teamed lithe, dusky Indonesian sex-
bomb Laura Gemser with director Joe DAmato, an exploitation legend if there ever
was one. DAmato, tragically born without the part of the brain that regulates good
and bad taste, is to sleaze what Yoda is to the force. When these two pool their
considerable resources no taboo is safe. Expect orgies, castration, perversions of
every stripe, all played out in the sin city of the universe, Bangkok. We know this
may not be everyones cup of poison but well take a double. And leave the bottle.
(Lars)
THE APPLE
Dir. Menahem Golan, 1980, PG, 90 min, 35mm
RZ 5/16
Hey hey hey, BIMs on the way! Thoroughly rogueish futuristic disco musical/
religious allegory from Cannon Films. Theres never been a movie even remotely
like this and I wouldnt bet on one being made in the future. A young couple, Bibi
and Alphie from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan come to the big city to make it big
in show business only to fall into the clutches of the satanic Mr. Boogolow, who
runs a giant music conglomorate called Boogolow International Music (BIM) thats
roughly as powerful as the Military-Industrial Complex. Bibi becomes a star and
takes Satans drugs but eventually Alphie musters the forces of Jesus to defeat
BIM and take all the true believers and white children to Heaven in a Rolls Royce.
With huge, shiny musical numbers that you wont believe youre seeing, including
one in Hell, with dog-headed musclemen and vampires dancing around Satans
throne. Non-missable. (Lars)
TOYS ARE NOT FOR CHILDREN
Dir. Stanley Brasslof, 1972, R, 85 min, 35mm
RZ 5/23
Heres a movie that takes everybody of guard, even hardened exploitation vets. Its
just impossible to believe that anyone would be sick and depraved enough to make
this movie, let alone release it, let alone watch it. So needless to say we consider
it a very great honor to present it. Its one of those melodramas where things get
worse and worse for the heroine as she gets closer an closer to the source of
her odd sexual obsession, in this case an unhealthy relationship with her toys.
As the story develops she spirals farther and farther down into the nightmarish
pit of her dark and convoluted fantasy life, losing her job, her husband and her
dignity as she becomes a high priced New York prostitute, specializing in kinky
roleplay. The ending of this movie is so shattering and unexpected that it leaves
audiences completely stunned. I wont spoil it for you but trust me, you want to
be there to see it. (Lars)

WEIRD WEDNESDAY
ESCAPE 2000
Dir. Brian Trenchard-Smith, 1982, R, 93 min, 35mm
RZ 6/6
Legendary action director and world-class blower-upper Brian Trenchard-Smith
brings you a dark portrait of the future. In the year 1995, everything will fall apart.
Well be herded into re-education camps and forced to wear yellow jumpsuits.
Occasionally well be turned loose and hunted down by the privileged rich and
their completely inexplicable dog-man henchman. Fortunately well get some
guns and completely blast the shit out of everybody and everyone. Director
Trenchard-Smith was promised a large budget with many extras and top-fight
sets and special efects but at the last minute the production lost funding and he
was forced to improvise. Fortunately he was more than up to the task and if ESCAPE
2000 lacks professional polish, it more than makes up for it in pace, excitement
and blood. Aka TURKEY SHOOT & BLOOD CAMP THATCHER. (Lars)
KIDNAPPED COED
Dir. Frederick Friedel, 1976, R, 76 min, 35mm
RZ 6/13
In the 70s, Times Square was a seedy open-air sex and drugs marketplace. And
the real hot-spots were the 24-hour movie theaters where double features of kung
fu, horror, and sex flms unreeled 24 hours a day for audiences composed primarily
of bitter, sociopathic males. Think Travis Bickle from TAXI DRIVER and youre on
the right track. It was an audience for which no extreme was too extreme. The
audience of popeyes would sit through showing after showing of gory horror,
amputee porn and worse, snifng glue and smoking dirt weed. There was enough
existential nausea in any given foot of Times Square to make Jean Paul Sartre toss
his crepes in the nearest clogged and overfowing urinal. So KIDNAPPED COED
must have hit Times Square like an artillery shell. Not since the flms of Jean-
Pierre Melville had there been an antihero quite like Jack Cannon, a self-loathing
kidnapper whose victim is stolen away from him by the mob, leading to a bloody
showdown. This is tough stuf, rough around the edges but gooily primal. If it had
been made in France it probably would have been acclaimed a masterpiece of
postwar alienation. Thank God it wasnt made in France but in the number one
country on Earth - USA America. (Lars)
THE SWORD & THE SORCERER
Dir. Albert Pyun, 1982, R, 99 min, 35mm
RZ 6/20
Weve had movies based on TV shows and video games by the dozens. Finally, here
is a movie based on an airbrush painting from the side of a custom van. Its pretty
much exactly what you would expect it to be - a very cheap ripof of CONAN THE
BARBARIAN - but it somehow manages to cram fve times as much pure fun into its
brief runtime. The muscleman (Lee Horsley) isnt exactly all that muscular, but he
does have an incredible two-bladed magic sword that saves the day from the dark
king and his evil wizard (played by Richard Moll of NIGHT COURT). Its a really silly,
undeniably hilarious movie that absolutely succeeds. One of the perfect summer
movies. (Lars)
THE BLACK SIX
Dir. Matt Cimber, 1973, R, 94 min, 35mm
RZ 5/30
See the 6 biggest, baddest and best waste 150 motorcycle dudes! During the
golden age of the drive-in there was one genre that could always be counted upon
to turn a proft: Biker movies. Scooter Trash epics like THE WILD ANGELS, BORN
LOSERS, SATANS SADISTS, and of course the major studio stepchild EASY RIDER
paid for any number of mansions in Malibu and the Hollywood Hills. The flms were
inexpensive to produce and were highly appealing to the young, mobility-mad
white audiences who frequented drive-ins. Meanwhile across town, movies like
SUPERFLY, COFFY, BLACK CAESAR and the like were packing em in at the inner city
theaters. It took an exploitation genius like Matt Cimber (WITCH WHO CAME FROM
THE SEA, HUNDRA) to bring the two audiences together in this story of an all-black
Vietnam Vet biker gang who take on a rival gang of racist rednecks. The Black Six
are all played by NFL stars, and while none are polished actors they are loose and
likable and when its time to throw an unwise user of the N-word through a wall,
they execute the playbook fawlessly. (Lars)
Weird Wednesday Surprise Title
RZ 6/27
Were going to rip the top of your head of this time with our extra special Weird
Wednesday surprise title. Its one of the three pillars of weirdness, one of the all-
time great exploitation titles ever made. 100% not for children or the humorless.
No refunds will be extended to anyone who drops dead from a brain hemorrhage

THE BIG LEBOWSKI Quote-Along
Dir. Joel & Ethan Coen, 1998, R, 117 min
SL Mondays
Man, this is one of those movies that you dont just quote-along with when youre
watching it; if youre at all like me you quote this movie every day, all through
your regular life, and at times you forget that some of the things you say all the
time are actually from the movie. Well from now on, that aggression will not stand,
man, because at long last the Action Pack has put together THE BIG LEBOWSKI
Quote-Along and we cant wait to see all of our Little Lebowski Urban Achievers
out at the theater. As always with a Quote-Along, all of your favorite lines will be
subtitled karaoke-style so it will be easy to yell out, Nobody f*cks with the Jesus!
at exactly the right time (youre on your own for getting the accent, though). Well

whites) and MORE!

sit back and relax as you sip on a tasty beverage or get yo ass on the stage and
show of your dance skills. Because were only playing the stuf that makes our
feet move and our bodies groove, its all thriller, no fller at this all-singing, all-
dancing rump-shaking good time. Expect to hear all your favorite club hits of today
and yesteryear from R. Kelly to Ke$ha. So 409 those white sneaks and put on your

Three unknowing martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete
in a tournament whose outcome will decide the fate of the world. You know the
game, you remember the platinum selling soundtrack and now prepare for ultimate
battle of textual kombat as we present to you MORTAL KOMBAT in HECKLEVISION.
Join Rayden, Liu Kang and the rest of the gang as they battle for Earthrealm against
the dreaded Shang Tsung and his deadly ninja assassins. Directed by the ever-
star cast led by the pre-straight to video Christopher Lambert, Mortal Kombat gave
us one of the frst in a long line of terrible video game adaptations. And so we ask
you to arm yourself with your wits and charge up your phones as we live stream all
your texted heckles on the screen alongside the masterpiece that is Mortal Kombat.
stuf, and then theres a man, who as far as I can tell, is made out of electricity. I

CADDYSHACK Quote-Along
Dir. Harold Ramis, 1980, 98 min
RZ 4/26, 5/3, 5/10, 5/17
Man, I wish Id worked at an amusement park, or a swimming pool, or a summer
camp, or a country club for at least one summer during high school or college. Ive
never even liked golf all that much, but I think I would if I could have a summer
like this. Not only would I get to hook up with the rich hot girl visiting from New
York, but Id get to be friends with Chevy Chase back when he was an endearing
sarcastic blowhard. Id get to hang out with Bill Murray and Id get to win a college
scholarship with the help of explosions! Come on! So maybe working at a real
country club isnt like that at all, but it sure should be. CADDYSHACK shows us
everything that an 80s movie can be, complete with the old windbag who doesnt
like kids and the misfts who just want to have fun, the random shots of boobs when
you least expect them, and, of course, quotable line after quotable line. And well
make it even better by subtitling all of our favorite lines, bringing in special props
(youd totally eat a Baby Ruth from a pool right?), and start the whole shebang of
with a bit of a putting competition. (Henri Mazza)

Goonies never say die! And because this movie is so awesome, they never have to.

friends on a journey of lost maps, treacherous traps and hidden treasures. Well
have a trufe shufe competition before the show and hand out Baby Ruths and
eye patches so we can all be One-Eyed Willies. This is a cinematic experience you
cannot aford to miss -- every card-carrying flm buf should see this movie in

swinging onto the pirate ship while youre yelling out, HEEEEEY YOUUU GUYSSS!
as loud as you possibly can with 200 other people who love this movie as much

THE THREE AMIGOS Quote-Along w/ Tacos
Dir. John Landis, 1986, PG, 104 min
RZ 5/5, 5/10 : SR 5/5
Theyre down on their luck and up to their necks in senoritas, margaritas, banditos

TOMMY BOY Quote-Along
Dir. Ben Stiller, 2001, R
RZ 6/14, 6/21, 6/28
Its been almost ffteen years since Chris Farley passed away, and yet I fnd myself
still quoting him on an almost daily basis. Whether Im opening my fridge (You
could put a six pack of b... soda in here.) or reaching for a dinner roll (Youre
naughty!), the spirit of Chris Farley remains alive and well in my vernacular. Sure,
Ive seen other comedies since TOMMY BOY was frst released in 1995, but none of
them have managed to oust the words of Tommy Callahan Jr., adorably idiotic man
child, from the top of my vocabulary. And then theres the deliciously deadpan wit
of David Spade, who plays Richard, Tommys coworker and reluctant babysitter. If
mockery is a science, then Richards jibes at Tommy (Did I catch a niner in there?
Were you calling from a walkie talkie?) should have earned him the Nobel Prize.
Together, Spade and Farley made up one of the most hilarious duos in the history of
cinema, and well celebrate them at this special Action Pack screening by quoting
of cow tipping, maniac dancing and deer that arent quite dead. And fat guys, dont
forget your little coats! (Sarah Pitre)
90s Alternative Sing-Along
RZ 5/17, 5/24, 5/31
Long hair, longer goatees, ripped up baggy jeans and fannel shirts tied around
your waist over the fannel shirt you were wearing as a shirt... the 1990s were
a ridiculous time, but they were a ridiculous time that took themselves sooooo
seriously. Only in the 1990s could someone like Eddie Vedder become a bona fde
rock star by singing a song about a kid named Jeremy who liked to draw pictures
of mountains with himself on top. Only in the 1990s could an album featuring an
underwater baby chasing a dollar bill become the anthem for an entire generation.
But only in the 2010s can we throw a party to remember that time by hitting the
thrift stores again, buying some fannel, and coming down to the movie theater to
celebrate Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Oasis, Weezer, Nirvana, and
every other band from the days when alternative actually meant something (until
those same bands made it completely meaningless). After the show, stick around
to help me destroy Gregs sweater - Im just going to pull a thread and walk away!

90s Movie Anthem Sing-Along
RZ 6/28, 7/5, 7/12
We started out doing a Sing-Along built from some of our favorite anthems of of
movie soundtracks with our 80s Movie Anthem Sing-Along. Thats an incredibly
fun show that weve done a few times over the past few years now, but it wasnt
until this past spring when we realized that, hey! theres a whole new decade of
soundtrack hits just waiting to be jammed to! We got curious, took a special trip to
the used CD section of Half Price Books to browse through our old CDs, and realized
very, very quickly that the 90s Movie Anthem Sing-Along could end up being even
more fun than the 80s show. Sure, the 80s had Top Gun and Footloose, and those
gave us plenty of great material for the last show. But the 90s gave us R. Kellys
I Believe I Can Fly from the soundtrack to SPACE JAM. And thats where we got
Coolios Gangstas Paradise, too. If those artists are too urban for you, though,
dont worry! CITY OF ANGELS also gave us Goo Goo Dolls songs on its soundtrack,
and you can bet that Iris will be included in this show. So come on out to the
Ritz this summer for the beginning of an entirely new Action Pack tradition. After
all, everything we do, we do it for you (another awesome 90s soundtrack hit!)
(Henri Mazza)
Summer of 1982 Sing-Along
RZ 6/7, 6/14, 6/21
This summer, the Alamo is revisiting the summer of 1982 by re-releasing 35mm
prints of each blockbuster hit from that banner year on the 30th anniversary of
their initial release. That program drew our attention to that summer and we
realized that theres no way the Action Pack could be left out of celebrating the pop
music that people were listening to on their way to the theater back then. Were
putting together a collection of 25 of the best hits from 1982 so after you watch
Tron, The Road Warrior, or the Wrath of Khan you can continue the 82 madness by
singing and dancing along to Olivia Newton Johns Physical, Survivors Eye of the
Tiger, the J. Geils Bands Centerfold, and maybe even some slow 82 jams like
Ebony and Ivory and Totos Rosanna. 1982 is taking over the Alamo this summer,
and this show is guaranteed to make sure you get the songs of the day stuck in
your head all over again.

This creative collision between Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall and Tobe Hooper
is the real estate horror flm of all time. Starring Craig T. Nelson as a patriarch of
a haunted household and featuring some of the creepiest supporting characters
of the 80s (wee blondie Heather ORourke as Carol Anne, the incredible Zelda
Rubinstein as Tangina Barrons), POLTERGEIST is The Great Ghost Story for this

SUMMER OF 82
CELEBRATING THE GREATEST SUMMER OF MOVIES...EVER
CONAN THE BARBARIAN
Rolling Roadshow MAD MAX 2: ROAD WARRIOR
Dir. George Miller, 1982, R, 95 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 5/18
THE BEST ACTION MOVIE OF ALL TIME!! Before Mel Gibson traded in his post-
apocalyptic leatherwear for the fowing cotton robes of Jesus, he was The Toughest
Hero in Movie History. Mad Max burned rubber across the scorched highways of the
barren Earth, on the hunt for fuel and the blood of criminal marauders. Even in the
Australian desert, some shotgun-wielding punk goon needs to be murdered every
30 seconds or so. Easy work for Max, until he runs up against post-nuke hellmaster
Lord Humungus and his crew of feral mohawked wasteoids. Suddenly, the lone wolf
of the wasteland fnds himself defending the last outpost of untarnished humanity.
What follows is inarguably the single greatest chase/fght/stunt explosion ever
captured on flm, with more car-fipping and stuntman-smashing than any 1000
American action blockbusters could dream of. Come witness the absolute ultimate
in fallen world annihilation with THE ROAD WARRIOR! (Zack Carlson)
CONAN THE BARBARIAN
Dir. John Milius, 1982, R, 129 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 5/11
What is best in life? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and
to hear the lamentations of their women. Truer words have never been spoken
by a sadistic Mongol overlord, and they truly shaped Conan and millions of his
fans. When this rampaging epic of swords and squat thrusts was unleashed at the
beginning of May 1982, the declining state of post-70s masculinity was suddenly
corrected. Arnold Schwarzenneger exploded into stardom in a hail of broken bones,
dark wizardry and superhuman combat. Aided by a fearless huntress and one of his
ol Mongol buddies, Conan will face of against the nefarious Thulsa Doom (James
Earl Jones) and battle against the enslavement of mankind. One of the most sweat-
powered flms youll ever see, and featuring the fat-out craziest giant snake in
movie history. (Zack Carlson)
ROCKY III
Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1982, PG, 99 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 5/25
In the frst flm, Rocky Balboa blew it. In the second, he conquered. But in the third,
he was permanently transformed into an immortal icon of the ring and the universal
human experience as a whole. Join everyones favorite diminutive mush-mouthed
pugilist for one of his top trademarked fall-n-rise triumphs, as he goes toe to toe
with the most unstoppable force in the boxing world: Clubber Lang (played with
truly intimidating rage by Mr. T)! On hand for the bufet of physical and emotional
brutality are all of Rockys diehard pals, including Carl Apollo Weathers, Talia

E.T.: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL
Dir. Steven Spielberg, 1982, PG, 115 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 6/8
Why did we EVER love E.T.? When he frst showed up in the cornfeld, he scared the
hell out of us. Then later, when he was sick in that creek bed, he made us cry like
little sissy babies. Plus he looks like something that fell of of Danny DeVito. But
something about that gnarled little spud spoke to every tender-hearted moviegoer
in the country, flling us with an interplanetary sense of love and wonder. Times
have changed, science fction movies have exploded into a bold new era of infated
budgets and computerized efectsand no spaceborne adventure has ever
recaptured the undisputed magic of Spielbergs incredible, original boy-and-his-
alien masterpiece. (Zack Carlson)
TRON
Dir. Steven Lisberger, 1982, PG, 96 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 7/6
Attention all Users! Follow us back to a beautiful page in history, before computer
games required a two-week vacation from work and digitally-generated special
efects dimmed the stars of Hollywood. When the visual magic of TRON hit the
screen in 1982, every jaw in the world hit the theater foors. And for our money, CGI
hasnt been this good since. Join synaptic superwarriors Clu (Jef Bridges), Tron
and Ram as they wage their epic battle against the wicked Master Control Program
in the only high-impact/low-tech epic of good versus evil to predict our modern
digital age, kind of! TRON!!! (Zack Carlson)
THE THING
Dir. John Carpenter, 1982, R, 109 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 6/22
The brain-blasting masterpiece of shape-shifting horror to destroy them ALL!
See Kurt Russell and crew battle a fesh-devouring monstrosity that defes all
comprehension! Though technically a remake of the 50s classic THE THING FROM
ANOTHER WORLD, its an entirely diferent kind of flm. The storyline follows a group
of researchers at an Antarctic base who accidentally unleash a frozen alien force
that can occupy the bodies of living creatures. The constantly metamorphosing
beasteroid is shown graphically (very graphically) thanks to the work of efects
genius Rob Bottin. Its a visceral horror movie that punches you in the face with
gross-out gore efects and then knees you in the groin with pinpoint suspense
timing. Russell is at his beardrocious best as Mac McReady, a Vietnam vet with a
shady past who is mankinds last hope against the invader. (Zack Carlson)
SUMMER OF 82
STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN
Dir. Nicholas Meyer, 1982, PG, 113 min, 35mm
Premieres RZ 6/3
Its been said that a movie is only as good as its villain. If thats the case, then STAR
TREK II is the best movie ever made. Ricardo Montalban chews a big, ragged hole
in the universe as the vengeful intergalactic exile Kahn, a more or less forgotten
enemy of the Starship Enterprise crew. But after decades of burning hatred, hes
armed with the secrets of life, some very unconventional alien weaponry, and
a rabid desire to wipe out Kirk, Spock and company once and for all. Because
as Khan often says: Revenge is a dish best served cold. And its very coldin
SPAAAACCCCE! (Zack Carlson)

FILM (screening with THE UNHOLY THREE)
Dir. Alan Schneider, 1965, 20 min, 35mm
5/14
This too-seldom-seen collaboration between silent flm legend Buster Keaton and
revolutionary writer Samuel Beckett is as impressive as it is unlikely. Keatons
mastery of slapstick combines with Becketts surrealistic assault to create an
unforgettably bizarre experience. Preserved by UCLA Film & Television
Archive. Preservation made possible through the Avant-Garde Masters
Grant funded by The Film Foundation and administered by the National
Film Preservation Foundation.
THE FILM FOUNDATION SERIES
MONDO, ALAMO AND MARTIN SCORSESES THE FILM FOUNDATION
CELEBRATE SOME OF THE GREATEST FILMS EVER MADE.
THE OLD DARK HOUSE
THE UNHOLY THREE
W/ LIVE SCORE BY PETER STOPSCHINST AND GRAHAM REYNOLDS
Dir. Tod Browning, 1925, 86 min, 35mm
RZ 5/14
From the mind of Todd Browning who was most famous for DRACULA (1931) but
who also covered some even more bizarre territory in his silent classics like this
one. The astonishing Lon Chaney plays a sideshow ventriloquist, disguised as an
old woman who teams with the circus strongman and a midget who masquerades
as a baby to commit a series of heists and con jobs. Theres a lot of the special
Browning/Chaney magic in this nightmarish visit to the dark side of humanity.
Restored by the George Eastman House in partnership with Warner Bros.
with funding provided by Warner Bros. and The Film Foundation.
SHADOW OF A DOUBT
Dir. Alfred Hitchcock, 1943, 108 min, 35mm
RZ 5/7
At times Hitchcock referred to SHADOW OF A DOUBT as his favorite of his own flms.
If you only know the Hitchcock of PSYCHO, THE BIRDS, etc. you may be surprised by
the lightness of touch Hitch displays in SHADOW. Its the story of a girls fascination
with her sainted Uncle Charlie, and the gradual realization that he may not be what
he appears when he pays the family a visit. The All-American small-town setting is
well sketched (credit that to screenwriter Thornton Wilder) and the performances
by leads Joseph Cotten and Teresa Wright are transcendent. The two are able to
convey an almost telepathic understanding of one another, and the confict of the
flm plays itself out in their eyes, in tiny turns of phrase, and in gesture. Hitchcock
and his cast pull of some of the most refned work ever done in any flm here, and
it all adds up to one of the most satisfying movies of Hollywoods golden era. (Lars)

Studios with funding provided by the Hollywood Foreign Press

THE FILM FOUNDATION SERIES
Created in 1990 by Martin Scorsese, The Film Foundation (flm-foundation.org)

THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER
Dir. Charles Laughton, 1955, 93 min, 35mm
RZ 6/18
This flm is the reason movies exist; a supremely balanced Southern gothic
fairytale of helplessness, homicide, hope and horror. Robert Mitchum channels the
Devil himself as a rabid so-called preacher on the bloodthirsty trail of two young
children. With money and murder on his fevered mind, hell stop at nothing to get
what he wants, and his berserk transformation into one of Hollywoods all-time
greatest villains is both dazzling and terrifying to behold. This flm is woven from
the dark tendrils of toddlers nightmares, and to see it on the big screen is quite
truly like no other experience in the world. NIGHT OF THE HUNTER was the frst and
fnal directorial efort from brilliant stage/screen actor Charles Laughton, because
once youve accomplished perfection, what could you possibly do next? (Zack)
Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive in cooperation with Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Inc. with funding provided by Robert Sturm and

THE FILM FOUNDATION SERIES
The Original KING KONG with Guest Host RICHARD HELL
Dirs. Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack, 1933,
100 min, 35mm
RZ 5/28
Cinema was still in its infancy in the early 30s, so imagine the breathless
amazement audiences shared while witnessing the sheer majesty of KING KONG.
More shocking is the fact that the flm is every bit as efective a near-century later,
its spectacle and tragedy undiminished by countless failed attempts to match it.
From the dinosaur-packed jungles of faraway lands to the panic-stricken mayhem
of Manhattan, The Great Apes shadow is permanently cast across our world. But
as gargantuan as the big lug is, it only takes one look at wee Fay Wray to bring
him to his knees, proving that even the worlds most powerful creature can be
struck down by the fsts of love. This very special screening will be introduced
by musical/literary legend Richard Hell, whose insights will be as thunderous as
the beast itself. Preservation funding provided in part by the Hollywood
Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation.
PATHS OF GLORY
Dir. Stanley Kubrick, 1957, 88 min, 35mm
RZ 6/4
A full decade before it became fashionable to burn your draft card, 29-year-old
Stanley Kubrick unleashed his most war-hating, violently humanitarian feature. A
platoon of WWI soldiers are ordered to march forward to certain death, and those
who refuse face an even darker fate. The viciousness of combat is displayed in
harrowing realism, but is proven to be no match for the emotionless corruption that
festers in the human soul. Kirk Douglas ofers a subtle, career-best performance
as Colonel Dax, a decorated, dedicated ofcer suddenly dehumanized by the ugliest
hypocrisies of war. Also tearing through the screen are Ralph Meeker (KISS ME
DEADLY) and impossibly powerful character actor Timothy Carey. If you thought
FULL METAL JACKET was Kubricks battlefeld masterpiece, youve got another thing
coming. Restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding provided
by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation.
RASHOMON
Dir. Akira Kurosawa, 1950, 88 min, 35mm
RZ 5/21
Kurosawas flm was such a radical blend of the classical and the modern that
today it seems to exist out of time. The storytelling structure, in which the same
story is told by diferent participants or observers, was radical in itself but the
physical look of the flm and the dynamism of the performances, particularly
Toshiro Mifune as the bandit, have made it one of the milestones of the cinema
itself. Kazuo Miyagawas gorgeous black and white cinematography is, of course,
best appreciated on the big screen and this restoration will show you facets of
this extraordinary flm you have never seen before. Restored by The Academy
Film Archive, The National Film Center of the National Museum of Modern
Art, Tokyo and Kadokawa Pictures, Inc. Funding provided by Kadokawa
Culture Promotion Foundation and The Film Foundation.
THE OLD DARK HOUSE
Dir. James Whale, 1932, 72 min, 35mm
RZ 6/11
On the heels of his iconic hit FRANKENSTEIN, James Whale could have pretty much
made whatever he liked. It is to his great credit that he made this wildly perverse
mystery set in a creepy old manor during a storm. When a party of young people
takes refuge in the old dark house of the title, the eccentricity of the inhabitants
(the Femms) seems at frst quaint and later terrifying. Boris Karlof gets top billing
as the mute butler Morgan, and hes certainly frightening enough, but top acting
honors go to the mincing Ernest Thesiger as Horace Femm, who can make even
the ofer of a potato sound odd and hilarious. Costarring Melvyn Douglas, Charles
Laughton and beautiful Gloria Stuart (whom you may recall from TITANIC many
years later). One of the most ludicrously enjoyable, subversively funny movies ever
made. Preserved by the Library of Congress in cooperation with Universal
Studios with funding provided by The Film Foundation.

Zzang!!!: BILL & TEDS EXCELLENT ADVENTURE

RZ 5/6
There are a zillion ways to earn a laugh, but one thing we can ALL agree on is
that suicidal depression is HIIIIILARIOUS! Just ask Lane Meyer (John Cusack), a
heartbroken teenager who just cant seem to catch a lethal break. Pills, nooses,
carbon monoxide poisoningnothin does the trick. But when his ex-beloved Beth
starts schmucking around with arrogant ski warrior Roy, Lane realizes that he must
put his self-destructive powers towards a better purpose: the total decimation
of The Enemy! Enter French heroine Monique (Diane Franklin), who joins school
scuzzbomb Charles De Mar in preparing Lane for the ultimate in downhill combat

Girlie Night: PRETTY WOMAN
Dir. Garry Marshall, 1990, R, 119 min
LC 5/9 : RZ 5/22, 5/29
Honestly, if you need me to convince you to come see this movie, Im not sure what
to say. Except for maybe... um... ITS PRETTY WOMAN. COME ON. Its the flm that
made me (and the rest of America) fall in love with Julia Roberts! Its the movie that
actually makes Richard Gere, not to mention the profession of prostitution, seem
really attractive! And, most important of all, it features the best shopping montage
EVER, ending with one of my favorite cinematic ef yous of all time (Big mistake.
HUGE). Is there anything PRETTY WOMAN cant do? Its the movie we turn to when
we need a reminder that not all guys are jerkfaces, that even when were down on
our luck, selling ourselves on the streets, there is still hope that one day, well get
to take a huge bubble bath and then jump on the bed in a hotel penthouse. In other
words, PRETTY WOMAN is therapy, and when you combine it with cocktails and a
theater full of people singing along to Princes Kiss, its potentially life-changing.
So hopefully Ive convinced you to join me for Girlie Night, but if not, heres one
more reason: Jason Alexander is in it! Ha ha, just kidding. The actual reason is ITS
PRETTY WOMAN. (Sarah Pitre)

Cinema Club: KISS ME DEADLY with Richard Hell
Dir. Robert Aldrich, 1955, 106 min, NR, 35mm
RZ 5/27
If you took the most misanthropic private detective in the world, injected him with
10,000ccs of testosterone and kicked him down the elevator shaft of a burning
building, youd still only be halfway to Mike Hammer. Pulp author Mickey Spillanes
two-fsted human wrecking ball had been around since the mid-40s, but it wasnt
until 1955 that the character blossomed into a crushing pillar of flm noir wrath.
Masterfully played with snide, pugilistic hatred by Ralph Meeker, Hammer sets out
on a rampage of crime-fghting, cop-fghting, and every other type of fghting he
can get his meaty mitts on. Along the way, hell orbit a few heavenly bodies and
get embroiled in a pitch black web of intrigue involving a radioactive suitcase
(which would later reappear in flms like REPO MAN to PULP FICTION). Its supreme
Hollywood masculinity, stinking drunk and stained with sweat, from visionary blue
collar flmmaker Robert Aldrich. Join us for the ultimate experience in mid-century
sex and violence, served Hammer style. ALSO! Richard Hell will be presenting
an additional Cinema Club following this screening, title TBA!

REPERTORY REVIVAL
AGFA Deep Tracks Presents: Andy Milligan Hate Fest
RZ 6/3
One of the most fascinating auteurs ever to work in the exploitation feld was
Andy Milligan, whose death date we commemorate with this double feature. He
made mostly horror and sex flms on microscopic budgets. He did it all himself:
wrote, directed, shot, edited, even costumes. Considering he must have made very
little money at it, its a marvel that these flms were made at all, but Milligan was
more than a man, he was a walking monument to hatred and dissatisfaction. His
characters rant and argue endlessly. The only happy people are the gingerbread
cutouts who function as Milligans improbably happy heterosexual heroes. If there
is a moment of peace in a Milligan movie it is sure to be short-lived. A real-life
sadist, Milligan lived to twist the knife. His movies are like no other movies at all.
This double feature brings together THE RATS ARE COMING, THE WEREWOLVES ARE
HERE (1972) about a bickering family of werewolves and BLOOD (1974), about the
contentious domestic relationship between a wolfman and Draculas daughter. Its
just about the most hate-flled and disagreeable evening we can imagine -- all in
classic 35mm. See you there!
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS Mothers Day Brunch
SR 5/13
Show us a someone that hates BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS and well show you a
someone who needs to get loose with a glass of something crisp and bubbly. Based
on Truman Capotes 1958 novella of the same name, BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS
remains one of the romantic comedies against which all others are measured.
The flm is so charming you almost forget that Golightlys a call girl and her
lovestruck best friend (George Hannibal Peppard) a kept man. Not to mention
that our romantic leads pastimes include littering, smoking cigarettes without
shame, shoplifting and being mean to animals. Peppards attempts to woo the
ADD-aficted and commitment-shy Golightly are both hilarious and heartbreaking,
and complicated further when her estranged husband (Buddy Ebsen) shows up in
NYC wanting her back. Served along with Chef John Bullingtons very delicious
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS Mothers Day Brunch menu.
Afternoon Tea: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
Dir. Kenneth Branagh, 1993, PG-13, 111 min
SL 5/26
When Kenneth Branagh released his version of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING in
1993, he proved that, even after a few hundred years, Shakespeares words remain
vibrantly beautiful and wonderfully compelling. Of course, it helps that these
words are uttered by incredibly attractive people like Denzel Washington, Emma
Thompson, Robert Sean Leonard and a super young Kate Beckinsale. Set against
breathtaking scenery, this ensemble powerhouse plays out Shakespeares comedy
of love and mischief with charm, grace and fabulous costumes. It may seem
impossible to improve upon this delightful gem, but trust us, movies are always
better when you add fancy tea and tantalizing British treats. In Mays installment
of our latest series, Afternoon Tea, youll feel incredibly cultured as the flm and
menu whisk you away on a whimsical and tasty adventure! Brimming with swoon,
laughter and deliciousness, this cinematic event is most certainly not much ado
about nothing. (Sarah Pitre)
Girlie Night: 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU
Dir. Gil Junger, 1999, PG-13, 97 min
LC 6/13 : RZ 6/19, 6/26
Sure, he made a totally creepy Joker, but in my mind, Heath Ledgers greatest
cinematic legacy will always be 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU. Following in the
grand tradition of teen adaptations of classic stories, this flm is so awesome,
Shakespeare himself wouldve written a sonnet about it. Lets start with Ledgers
Patrick Verona, the ultimate Bad Boy With a Heart of Gold (TM). And then theres Kat
Stratford, a totally ferce heroine who kicks the shizz out of girls on the soccer feld
and even fashes a teacher during a detention break cos she is THAT HARDCORE.
Not only is the swoon factor in this movie super high (who knew paintball could be
sexy?), but the supporting cast is full of my favorite high school cliches, from the
nerdy A/V guy to the high school guidance counselor/romance novelist, played by
the peerless Allison Janney. Allison, thanks to you, I will never look at a bratwurst
without blushing. Anyway! I hope youll join me in celebrating Heath Ledgers
masterpiece of flm (Brokeback who?) as we cheer on Cameron, roll our eyes
at Bianca and, of course, sing along to Cant Take My Eyes Of of You, the most
romantic bleacher serenade EVER. (Sarah Pitre)

Need a cure for DOWNTON ABBEY withdrawal? Look no further than Afternoon Teas
presentation of GOSFORD PARK, when you can get your fx of ridiculously wealthy
people, servant politics, fancy estates, polite intrigue and, most importantly, some
Maggie Smith sass. Set in 1932, Robert Altmans gorgeous murder mystery is
packed with the classiest actors in Hollywood, from the dead sexy Clive Owen to
the elegant Kristin Scott Thomas, and the plot is just as juicy as the British treats
youll be enjoying along with three courses of tea. Sip and nibble your way through
this richly clever whodunit as scandalous secrets from upstairs and downstairs are
revealed. Everyone is a suspect, and their motives form an extravagant web that
will keep you happily trapped for the afternoon. Bring your appetite and your best

Broadway Brunch: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
Dir. Vincente Minnelli, 1951, NR
RZ 6/16, 6/17
A GI (Gene Kelly) stays in Paris after the war to become an artist, and has to
choose between the patronage of a rich American woman (Nina Foch) and a
French gamine (Leslie Caron) engaged to an older man. The plot is mostly an
excuse for director Vincente Minnelli to pool his own extraordinary talent
with those of choreographer-dancer-actor Kelly and the artists behind the
screenplay, art direction, cinematography, and score, creating a rapturous
musical not quite like anything else in cinema. The fnal section of the flm
comprises a 17-minute dance sequence that took a month to flm and is
breathtaking. An American in Paris won 6 Academy Awards in 1952, including
best screenplay and best picture.
Zzang!!!: ROCKY IV
Dir. Sylvester Stallone, 1985, 91 min, PG, 35mm
RZ 6/24
In anticipation of the 4th of July holiday, Zzang!!! is proud to provide all you good
Americans with the most American movie in the history of America! In his fourth
and most momentous screen adventure, wee punchin machine Rocky Balboa
shakes the foundations of the nation when he goes toe-to-iron boot with Drago
(Dolph Lundgren), a Russian Frankenstein who looks like he uses Italians as
dental foss. But our hero remains undaunted, diving fearlessly into a montage
barrage thatll rattle you like a boxing glove fulla borscht. Join Rockys pals Carl
Weathers, Burt Young and James Brown (!) ringside to see their main man get the
holy bejeezus beaten outta him by the biggest damn commie youll ever lay your
eyes on. This movie is so red-white-n-black-n-blue that its aftershocks directly
resulted in the dissolution of Soviet Russia just six years later! Thats strength!
Thats power!! Thats AMERICA!!! ZZANG!!!
Video Hate Squad: CRIME KILLER
Dir. George Pan-Andreas, 1985, 87 min, R, VHS!
RZ 6/17
A vanity project for writer/director/star/dud George Pan-Andreas, a middle-aged,
very Greek TV actor with delusions of marketability. The opening credits provide
an immediate overdose of entertainment, as a naked marble sculpture fres lasers
out of its eyes at images of crumbling coliseums. Once the story of hard-hitting
lawman Zeus (guess who) kicks in, its a rollicking, unintentional parody of 80s
cop dramas, with dying partners, blustery chiefs, revoked badges, silk-suited crime
lords and every other component one could conceivably swipe from the assembly
block. To Pan-Andreas credit, the ESL-level dialogue is subtly unique: How did you
earn your living? Walking down Fag Lane? Women play topless tennis, turbaned oil
sheiks call each other comrade in Russian accents, and top-ranking underworld
ofcials perform kung fu torture on their own gardeners. Then things get REALLY
wild. We give a sincere salute to the penniless Hollywood producers who gave
would-be auteur Pan-Andreas the chance to buy his way into straight-to-video
obscurity. Take a walk down Fag Lane with the Video Hate Squad for our most
memorable screening yet!!! (Zack)

THE SOUND OF MUSIC
Dir. Robert Wise, 1965
LC 5/18 : RZ 5/19, 6/2 : SL 5/25, 5/26 : SR 6/1
The hills are alive with the sound of laughter as Master Pancake takes on this
beloved 1965 classic. Come see us mock the flm that New Yorker critic Pauline
Kael called the sugar-coated lie people seem to want to eat. Featuring Julie
Andrews as Maria, an aspiring nun who cant say no to fun. When Maria is enlisted
by Captain von Trapp to supervise his kids, wackiness results until she fgures
out how to win their hearts AND take on the Nazi oppressors, thus becoming
SUPERNANNY: AUSTRIA. Sugar coated lie? Or the best movie musical about
prospective nuns fghting Nazis ever!? You decide this April as we mock the hell
out of it. With special guest mocker Mary Jo Pehl of Cinematic Titanic and Mystery
Science Theater 3000.
JURASSIC PARK
Dir. Steven Spielberg, 1993
RZ 5/4, 5/5, 5/12 : LC 5/11
Hold onto your butts as Master Pancake reprises one of their most enduring
mocks: JURASSIC PARK (1993). The early 90s were a simpler time, when cerebral
character actors like Sam Neill and Jef Goldblum could play action heroes, and
bad-motherfathers like Samuel Jackson could play computer geeks. When
dinosaur special efects were created using adorable stop-motion models
instead of fakey-looking CGI. We at Master Pancake look back on that time with a
mixture of love and pity. Thats why weve dug up JURASSIC PARK and genetically
reconstructed it with a healthy dose of Master Pancake mockery mixed in. Come
see the results this April/May. Chaos is sure to ensue. (John)

Master Pancake: THE SOUND OF MUSIC
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE
Dir. David Slade, 2010
LC 6/22 : RZ 6/29, 6/30
Starting in June, by popular demand, Master Pancake moons the THIRD installment
of the TWILIGHT series: ECLIPSE (2010). If you thought the frst two Twilight mocks
were fun, wait til you see us overshadow THIS crazy-ass movie. ECLIPSE has
telepathic wolves, something called the SEATTLE NEWBORN ARMY, and the best
(i.e. WORST) wigs and hairstyles of the series. For the curious, this is the excuse
youve been waiting for. For the initiated, you know that it deserves the Pancake
treatment. Whether youre on Team Edward, Team Jacob or Team I Dont Give a Fork,
youll love Master Pancakes comedic take on this new vampire classic. (John)

then the audience will vote on which of those they want to see mocked. Be
prepared to give a short speech in defense of your movie. The audience has fnal
say. Previous winners include: Tip Toes, Logans Run,Left Behind, Demolition Man,

fun night, with lots of audience participation and the thrill of seeing a movie mock
made up right before your eyes. (John)

LATE SHOW
NEW AND CLASSIC CELLULOID CULT KICKS FOR LATE NIGHT THRILL
SEEKERS. EVERY WEEKEND AT RITZ
SANTA SANGRE
Dir. Alejandro Jodorowsky, 1989, R, 123 min, 35mm
RZ 5/11 & 5/12
This year, do yourself a favor and celebrate Mothers Day right for a change with this
story of a boy so crazy about his dear old mom that he makes Norman Bates seem
kind of balanced! With a premise slightly more straightforward than his celebrated,
psychedelic cult epics, THE HOLY MOUNTAIN and EL TOPO, Alejandro Jodorowskys
SANTA SANGRE is no less feverishly brilliant and utterly afecting. Its the story of
a boy who becomes the hands for his circus performer mother after her arms
are brutally taken, but in Jodorowskys, well, hands its a famboyant parade of
striking ideas and imagery, taking the hysteria and strangeness of Mexican pulp
art and pushing it to the limit and far beyond. Its a bizarre world of armless saints,
ruthless drunken knife throwers, deformity and madness. Along the way, there is
beauty, love and towering imagination. Its a visionary flm that critic Roger Ebert
has praised as a a collision between Freud and Fellini. Dont miss your chance to
see this cult masterpiece on the big screen with your mom
FIGHT CLUB
Fantastic Fest Presents:
LADY VENGEANCE
Dir. Park Chan-wook, 2005, R, 112 min, 35mm
RZ 5/4 - 5/6
After being wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and murdering a young child, a
beautiful young woman (Lee Young-ae) is imprisoned for 13 years and forced to
give up her own daughter. While in prison she gains the respect and loyalty of
her fellow cellmates, all the while plotting her vendetta on the man responsible
(OLDBOYs Choi Min-Shik). Upon her release she sets in motion an elaborate plan
of retribution, but what she discovers is a truth so horrifying, even revenge doesnt
seem punishment enough. The fnal flm in director Park Chan-wooks acclaimed
Vengeance Trilogy, and like the two other flms of the series, LADY VENGEANCE is
a revenge tragedy on a Shakespearian scale -- and more than a touch sensational.
And yet, for all those sensational aspects, LADY VENGEANCE observes the toll of
vengeance on the revenger; theres nothing cheap or easy about it. In short, its a
harrowing and emotionally complex masterpiece.
DARK CITY
Dir. Alex Proyas, 1988, R, 100 min, 35mm
RZ 5/18 & 5/19
An immensely stylish melding of flm noir and sci-f from director Alex Proyas,
DARK CITY was a pretty big disappointment when it frst debuted at the box
ofce back in 98. Some of us might actually remember working at the multiplex
that summer and peeking in on virtually empty houses while it played and then
disappeared in, like, a week. But like BLADE RUNNER -- certainly a big inspiration
for this unique thriller -- time has actually been pretty kind to DARK CITY. A cult
has risen up around it. Critics have praised it. The flm has been given deluxe DVD
and Blu-ray release. But you dont get to see it up on the big screen all that often.
And so we unoffcially kick of our 90s-centric run of new cult classics in May and
June with this visually innovative genre mashup about a man accused of brutal
murders and fghting for his very mind against creepy, seemingly omnipotent
beings. Eye candy bonus: The flms German expressionism-inspired sets.
FIGHT CLUB
Dir. David Fincher, 1999, R, 139 min, 35mm
RZ 5/25 & 5/26
Despite the frst rule being expressly not to talk about it, David Finchers adaptation
of Chuck Palahniuk novel was one of the most talked about flms of the late 90s.
Edward Norton co-stars as an alienated insomniac stuck in a dull white-collar
job who gets of on attending disease support group meetings. That is until he
meets Tyler Durden, wildcard soap salesman. Bonding over their mutual disgust
for consumer culture, the pair develop an unusual hobby: beating the shit out of
each other. Soon their underground club becomes a full-fedged phenomenon,
with disafected young men across the country forming their own clubs to channel
primal aggression into life-afrming brutal, bare-knuckled brawls. Then Helena
Bonham Carter gets mixed up in their bromance and things just get weirder. Sure,
a lot has changed since its initial release war and recession; Ikea has continued
to saturate our lives; the word bromance exists; and Brad Pitt is, well, still
handsome and wildly successful. Nevertheless, FIGHT CLUB still stands as one of
the most awesomely subversive movies ever to come outta Hollywood. See it, large
and in charge on the big screen. Just dont, you know, talk about it afterwards.

LATE SHOW
DONNIE DARKO
Dir. Richard Kelly, 2001, R, 113 min, 35mm
RZ 6/8 & 6/9
THE cult movie of the early aughts returns to the big screen in its original theatrical
cut. Accept no substitutions, alternate cuts, or unauthorized-straight-to-DVD
sequels! Set in a Virginia suburb against the backdrop of the 1988 presidential
campaign, DONNIE DARKO tells the story of a troubled teen whose hallucinations
may be just a product of his own brewing schizophrenia or the keys to averting
the end of the world. Jake Gyllenhaal is Donnie, the young anti-hero led by cryptic
messages from a sinister 6-foot rabbit named Frank. He tells Donnie that the clock
is ticking down to the apocalypse and urges him to commit destructive acts that
spark controversy and upheaval in the conservative community, and ultimately
push him towards his tragic destiny. A sci-f thriller with a philosophical bent
and ending that people are still talking about, DONNIE DARKO also features some
damn fne supporting players, including Jena Malone as Donnies frst love, Mary
McDonnell (President Roslin!) and the late-great Patrick Swayze as a creepy self-
help guru.
GROSSE POINTE BLANK
Dir. George Armitage, 1997, R, 107 min, 35mm
RZ 6/1 & 6/2
While by the time youre reading this we may all be shaking our heads and maybe
even our fsts at John Cusack for yet another half-baked career decision (cmon,
John, THE RAVEN, really?), lets turn the clock back to the late 1990s, back when
we were positive wed never ever get tired of seeing that awkwardly charming man
who played so many awesome 80s heroes on flm cue WAYNES WORLD fashback
sound and, hey, wait, whats this? John Cusack is starring in a comedy about a hit
man who returns to the crappy detroit suburb where he grew up for his high school
reunion. AND it stars that chick from GOOD WILL HUNTING? Sign us up! (This was the
90s, remember) Back to the present, this black-ish comedy about assassin Martin
Q. Blanks attempt to break out of his career rut (who knew career killers even had
ruts!) by returning to the town he vanished from a decade earlier, attending his
reunion, rekindling an old fame (Driver), AND pulling of one last job still holds up
as one of Cusacks fnest flms (unlike, say, 2012). Bonus Factors: Cusack also co-
wrote the snappy script; supporting performances by Joan Cusack and Alan Arkin.
Hell, even Dan Aykroyd is good in this movie!
GALAXY QUEST
Dir. Dean Parisot, 1999, PG, 102 min, 35mm
RZ 6/15 & 6/16
Yes, its hard to believe that the guy who grunted his way to stardom with his manly
man schtick on the inane sitcom Home Improvement could be in any movie worth
recommending but for those who arent already fans, its true, GALAXY QUEST
utterly rules. Its a loving, thoroughly clever sendup to cult sci-f shows like Star
Trek and the phenomenon of fandom itself. It also sports an insanely awesome
ensemble cast -- Sigourney Weaver AND Alan Rickman AND Tony Shaloub AND Sam
Rockwell AND yes, Tim Allen as a spot on mucho macho starship captain -- all
starring as the cast of a once-popular Trek-esque TV show who are all pretty much
thoroughly washed up, reduced to store openings and fan conventions. That is until
an actual alien race who took the long-running show as historical documents
beam up the ragtag crew and ask their heroes to help save their home planet.
Watch out, Mr. Red Shirt Bonus: creatures and FX by the legendary Stan Winston.
CITY OF LOST CHILDREN
Dirs. Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 1995, R, 112
min, 35mm
RZ 6/22 & 6/23
Before they warmed the cockles of hearts and dropped jaws the world over with
that cozy bit of eye candy, AMELIE, Belgian flmmakers Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre
Jeunet thrilled and unsettled theatergoers -- and no doubt drove untold legions of
stoned college students of the 90s into deep delight and mind-looping paranoia
-- with this fantastical dark fairy tale for adults. A tale of seaport towns, missing
ragamufn children, heroic circus strongmen (the ever badass Ron Perlman),
creepy crime boss Siamese-twin sisters, feas, cloned henchmen, sentient giant
brains in jars, and a dream-deprived mad scientist bent on unlocking the secret
of those nocturnal visions via stolen children. Its an utterly arresting fantasy that
seems to mash up the best parts of Terry Gilliams BRAZIL with the feel of Tom
Waits Island years-era recordings into one cohesive slightly steampunk-favored
cinematic goulash. Do your brain and eyes a favor and see it on the big screen. And
unlike sophomore year, lets not freak out this time, ok?
THE ROOM
Dir. Tommy Wiseau, 2003, R, 99 min, 35mm
RZ 6/29 & 6/30
Whether or not Tommy Wiseau intentionally shot his flm as a black comedy, or
if he is simply a completely inept flmmaker (and actor) is utterly irrelevant. THE
ROOM will stand the test of time as one of the most mind-bendingly awesome
oferings to ever drop from the celluloid heavens. Completely fnanced and
distributed by Mr. Wiseau, this divine piece of WTF-ery has built a cult following
playing midnight screenings across the country and solidifed its place as the
CITIZEN KANE of terrible movies. The Guardian described it as a mix of Tennessee
Williams, Ed Wood and R. Kellys Trapped in the Closet. Thats about as apt a
description as we could possibly provide.

will feature a lecture, a declamation, a drinking song, a flm or live musical
performance, an appeal to Dionysus, a fction-writing contest, and plenty of strong
drink. But the heart of every Dionysium is the debate, pitting two experts against

robots.

in search of authenticity and purpose in his life. This poignant flm played to

cocktails and Nazi jerks for fying cars and zany antics! A rollicking, rampaging epic

up in the bad graces of an evil baron who wants pops genius all to himself, and

Rolling Roadshow: The Austin Classical Guitar Society
presents THE UNKNOWN at Laguna Gloria
Dir. Tod Browning, 63 min
RRS 6/25
The Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow and the Austin Classical Guitar Society are
teaming to present the 1929 silent masterpiece THE UNKNOWN starring Lon Chaney
Sr. and Joan Crawford. Weve commissioned European-based ultra-inventive duo
Les Freres Meduses to compose an original flm score for two guitars and violin.
Theyll perform it live with virtuoso violinist Sandy Yamamoto (formerly of Mir
Quartet fame!). Well show the movie with 500 chairs near the water on the gorgeous
grounds of Laguna Gloria with food and wine conceived by the Alamos Executive
Chef John Bullington, and live pre-show fre twirlers and knife throwers! Alamo
founder and CEO Tim League and ACGS Matt Hinsley will talk movie and music
before the show begins. This truly spectacular and bizarre silent classic stars the
Man of a Thousand Faces, Lon Chaney. He puts in an incredible performance as
circus attraction Alonzo The Armless, who throws knives with his feet. Beautiful
young Joan Crawford plays the daughter of the circus owner. She hates and fears
mens arms. So its a match made in heaven, right? Wrong. It turns out that Alonzo
actually has a perfectly good pair of arms tucked away under his clothes and he
has on occasion used them for strangling people with - in fact his whole armless
act is a designed to throw of the police who have been pursuing him across Europe.
But with the buoyant energy of one truly in love, he bribes a doctor to amputate his
arms so he can be Joan Crawfords dreamy armless loverboy. What could go wrong?
Plenty, of course, but weve said enough. Join us for one of the most unbelievable
movies ever made, accompanied by the perfect live score!

Fords 1945 classic THEY WERE EXPENDABLE is one of the toughest and best movies
ever made about men and women in war. If there is an air of truth in it, its because
the movie is based on real people and events that occurred in the course of the
defense of the Philippines. Director Ford was a Commander in the Navy and co-star
Robert Montgomery was a Lt. Commander. The scenes of gallantry and action have
rarely been equaled on the screen. In a flm full of standout scenes, John Waynes
eulogy to his fallen comrades never fails to remind us of the great debt we owe
to those who served. Beer and food will be available and all proceeds will beneft

SEEFEST Austin: Films of Southeast Europe
Tuesdays @ 7:00 May 1 - May 22
Our frst foray into flms from Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia,
Slovenia, Albania, and Romania, we are pleased to welcome our knowledgeable
curator, Vera Mijojlic, Director of the annual South East European Film Festival
of Los Angeles, now in its seventh year. She describes the unique focus of the
festival: South East Europe is a stretch of land between the West and the East,
mixing elements of both in an explosive multi-ethnic melting pot. Meandering
through the countries of this turbulent region is the only direct land route between
Western Europe and the Middle East. Almost everything is subject to dispute:
borders, country names, languages, history; the place is rife with historical claims
which have a tendency to confuse outside visitors. Today the fragile landscape of
South East Europe is host to many initiatives aimed at creating lasting stability,
eventually leading to integration and acceptance into the European Union. SEEFest
educates about and promotes cultural diversity of South East Europe through its
annual presentations of flms from this region and year-round screenings and
programs. For the Austin presentation, we will be showing six flms shown at
previous SEEFest screenings and one TBA mystery flm from this years SEEFest.

When he comes to the door, they panic and shoot him. When they realize there is a
witness, his eleven-year-old daughter, they have an even greater dilemma to kill
her in truly cold blood or to release her and accept their fate. This is a magnifcent
wartime suspense tale relayed from diferent points of view, which remind us that
various ethnic groups lived together in the former Yugoslavia but became bitter
enemies once the central government disintegrated.

his studies, thinking it may all fall by the wayside with time, but he is mistaken.
In this riveting suspense flm, Minarolli dissects the traditions of the people of the
