Tonight we’re opening up two movies: Nicolas Winding Refn’s beautiful, violent and surreal Only God Forgives (Tickets) about Ryan Gosling staring at his hands; and the new Kristin Wiig comedy Girl Most Likely (Tickets). In theater 3, we’ll be holding on to The Bling Ring (Tickets) for another week and Frances Ha (Tickets) will be lingering around this weekend for a pair of midnight screenings before she finally goes off and gets a goddamn apartment for herself.
As Far Back As I Remember, I Always Wanted to be a Zombie
Our Nitehawk Nasty this month is George A. Romero’s landmark Night of the Living Dead (Tickets), one of the most important movies of the last century. When the dead start to rise, a band of mismatched survivors hold up in an empty farm house, but as they board up the windows from the undead threat, internal strife threatens their very survival. Screening in 35mm.
Our other midnight feature this weekend is Martin Scorsese’s endlessly quotable masterpiece: Goodfellas (Tickets). See what it takes to work your way up the mob ladder, including the perks and the quite costly downside. Screening in 35mm
Cartoons and Cartoon-y Art
Spoons, Toons and Booze (Tickets)is back this month with a set of sexed up cartoons that probably aren’t appropriate for anyone, much less kids. Come see your favorite characters shake their money makers.
For Art Seen this month, we’re screening Beauty is Embarrassing (Tickets), a documentary about Wayne White and his decades long quest to shake up the art scene with a bit of humor. If you’ve ever seen Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, or caught a glimpse of The Weird Al Show, White’s work should be familiar. His work is odd, fun and brilliant. Q&A with the film’s director, Neil Berkeley, on Saturday.
Monday, 10pm; Simpsons Club | Season 5 of The Simpsons continues with four fantastic episodes: Treehouse of Horror IV, Boy Scoutz in the Hood, Marge on the Lam, and Bart’s Inner Child. Keep an eye on your soul doughnut, and for the love of God, do not drink the all-syrup Squishee.
Monday, Midnight; Test Pattern Television | After The Simpsons, our After Hours happy hour kicks in for a few episodes from America’s favorite pair of idiots: Beavis and Butthead.
Tuesday, 9pm; Reel to Real: Music Video Night | Reel to Real this week switches coasts, taking a look at the best that the west had to offer in the 1990’s. Along with videos from 2Pac, Pharside, Warren G, Tha Dogg Pound and more, we’ll be serving up our Gin & Juice special, and capping things off with the full 15 minute version of Snoop Dogg’s mini-movie: Murder Was the Case. Come see Charlie Murphy peel a few skulls back. After the videos we’ll also be screening Friday — Because why not?
Wednesday, 10pm: Wrestling Wednesday | Our Pay-Per-View this week is the Royal Rumble 1992, the first time that Ric Flair stepped into the ring at the WWF. Maybe one of the best Battle Royale performances of all time. The show starts at 10pm, but our Main Event Happy Hour begins at midnight. WOOOO!
