Dir. Arthur Penn - 1969 - 111m

"It is hard to imagine a more beautiful movie" (Time Magazine) than this critically acclaimed chronicle of hippie life during the late 1960s, which garnered the acclaimed director of Bonnie and Clyde his second Oscar(r) nomination*. Based on the song by folk music troubadour Arlo Guthrie, son of legendary "Dust Bowl" balladeer Woody Guthrie, this tribute film to "the lost generation" features memorable scenes with other folk artists like Pete Seeger, who join Arlo in song to make a profound statement about war, protest and change. In the late '60s, a changing social and political climate inspired a new generation to create a lifestyle outside of the mainstream. Twenty-two year-old Arlo's journey to find a place for himself and his music includes a visit to his dying father in the hospital, gigs in New York and romps with his friends Alice and Ray, who run a small restaurant in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. And when an incident at Alice's Restaurant plays a pivotal role inArlo's avoidance of the draft, it sends him down a road that he will consider a small price to pay to keep his freedom and his beliefs.  Directed by Arthur Penn(Bonnie and Clyde, Little Big Man, Night Moves)

Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years

Nov 27 to Nov 28
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Penelope Spheeris - 1988 - 93m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation!


From the Director of DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION and SUBURBIA comes the ultimate film about the world of heavy metal, THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PART Il: THE METAL YEARS. Interviews with some of the music industry's hardest rockers, like Aerosmith, Kiss, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne. Performances by Faster Pussycat, Lizzy Borden, London, Odin and Megadeth.

In the mid 80's a new scene took over the Los Angeles nightlife--Heavy Metal. Loud, rude, sexy, sexist and anti-authoritarian. Penelope Spheeris' THE METAL YEARS  takes an in-depth look at rabid fans, desperate groupies, wanna-be rock stars that go so far as to threaten suicide if they don't "make it." The film also portrays the harsh reality of the music business, where everyone's dream to become a star can't possibly come true.  It's a real life "Spinal Tap" that makes us look back and ask, "What the hell were we doing?"

"Rather like watching a car wreck on the opposite side of a motorway." - Time Out

"Fascinating." - Film4

"This is a well-made, observant documentary, with attitude to spare and plenty of justifiable laughs at the expense of its subjects." - TV Guide's Movie Guide
