So, if you can manage to chisel yourself out of your apartment this weekend, we’ve got a lot of movies for you. Think of it like huddling for warmth, except with entertainment and strangers. And food. There’s food too. For our regular programming, we’re holding on to Django Unchained (Tickets), Zero Dark Thirty (Tickets) and Silver Linings Playbook (Tickets).
Generic Title for Midnight Movie Section
Our midnight this week is Alex Cox’s cult classic Repo Man (Tickets), which we’re screening in 35 mm. It stars Emilio Estevez as a young punk who gets caught up in some space alien shit when he steals a car that glows green and can fly. Great soundtrack too.
Muppets and Pre-Code New York Docks
Moving right along, for brunch this week we have The Muppet Movie (Tickets), which will be closing out our Little Creatures series with a song in its heart. It’s also the only film in the series that isn’t traumatizing and terrifying and it’s in 35mm–so bring the kids!
For Live Sound Cinema this month, we have 1928’s The Docks of New York (Tickets), Josef von Sternberg’s pre-code drama about a NY dock worker whose life gets a bit complicated when he saves a suicidal woman from drowning. The film will be scored by Guizot.
It’s Bootlegger’s Night in the cafe on Wednesday starting at 8pm, this month we have rare concert footage from Dinosaur Jr. The $5 Beer/Shot Bootlegger’s special will be there as well as a DJ who will be playing all kinds of awesome Dinosaur Jr-y stuff.
Next Week: A whole mess of stuff: Terminator, Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Trivia, American Psycho dinner, OG Django and more!
Anyway, about my washtub. I’d just used it that morning to wash my turkey, which in those days was known as a walking-bird.
