Headliner RUSTY RUTHERFORD

Rusty Rutherford’s twisted comedy has "More Energy Than A High School Cheer Squad" (Montreal Fringe Festival). You'll question if Rusty is sane one minute with his dark, offbeat humor, then question if he's a "Comedic Genius" (Rusty's mom) the next when he seems to incorporate every member of the audience into an on-the-spot freestyle rap. Rutherford was recently voted 2nd best Albuquerque comedian in the Weekly Alibi's "Best of Burque'."  His comedic journey has taken him to venues of all shapes and sizes across America and Canada and has even landed him a spot on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Rutherford graduated from the University of New Mexico where he studied Theatre, Media Arts, Psychology, and Communication and has been member of Blackout Theatre Company and Eat, Drink and be Larry sketch comedy troupe. He has trained with Tricklock Theatre in Albuquerque, NM and The Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, IL. Whatever you expect, throw it out the window and expect the unexpected in what can only be described as structured insanity.

Featuring KENDRA JEAN

Kendra Jean first fell in love with stand up in 2004, but was too shy to introduce herself. She dated sketch and improv comedy from 2010-2016. After a one night stand with stand up, she lost stand up’s number. Now in a serious committed relationship with stand up, as of 2017, she's eagerly waiting for stand up to break her heart. 

Hailing from the exotic Daytona Beach, Florida Kendra Jean is now residing in the mean streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her material is often personal, sometimes punny, and is always known to make audiences weep long after she has the left the stage.

JAMAR HALL

 While on stage, Jamar has been described as a cleverly blatant conversationalist. Originally starting in 2009, Jamar finally took to comedy in late 2012. Influenced by the likes of Bill Cosby &  Rodney Dangerfield, Jamar illustrates his misfortune in a storytelling fashion. One fellow comic has been quoted saying "Jamar adds logic to absurd situations." Having toured through most of the southwest and the east coast,  his main goal is to just spread the laughter.

Moka

Jun 23 to Jun 26
Friday to Monday 4:00, 8:15

Dir. Frederic Mermoud - 2017 - 89m - France - In French with English subtitles

Based on the best-seller by Tatiana de Rosnay (Kristin Scott Thomas hit “Sarah’s Key”, “A Secret Kept”) - Following in the footsteps of Alfred Hitchcock and Claude Chabrol, Moka is a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller in the vein of celebrated story-teller Patricia Highsmith, starring legendary actresses Nathalie Baye (Catch Me If You Can) and Emmanuelle Devos (Coco Before Chanel).

After being released from a sanatorium, Diane (Devos) is still shattered from the death of her son in a hit and run accident. Diane's search for the driver leads her to the stunning spa town of Évian. After meeting Marlene (Baye), a glamorous beautician, Diane is convinced she has found the culprit...

"The reliably interesting Emmanuelle Devos brings complexity to this sleek, Chabrol-like story of a mother's revenge mission." – Guy Lodge, Variety

"A mother's haunting grief propels her on an obsessive quest for answers and possible revenge in Moka, a mournful, slow-burning psychological thriller adapted from the 2006 novel by Tatiana de Rosnay. Frederic Mermoud's return to feature films...has a strong affinity with the writing of Patricia Highsmith and the films of Claude Chabrol and should appeal to an audience seeking moral complexity in their thrillers..." – Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

"A classy and classical psychological thriller." – Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

Nise: The Heart of Madness

Jun 23 to Jun 26
Friday to Monday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Roberto Berliner - 2017 - 109m - Brazil - In Portuguese with English subtitles - No Matinees

In 1940s Rio de Janeiro, Dr. Nise da Silveira - Brazilian actress Gloria Pires In a bravura performance - is one of the first women in the country to ever study medicine. She starts work in a psychiatric hospital where she refuses to employ the new and violent electroshock treatments for schizophrenics. Ridiculed by other doctors, she is exiled to the nearly abandoned occupational therapy unit, where Instead she starts a revolution through paints, dogs and love. Based on a true story, Nise: The Heart of Madness (Nise: O Coração da Loucura) vividly shows the pioneering work that led to the liberation of patients given the freedom to express themselves, and their paintings that become art world sensations. The great Carl Jung in real life became an admirer of Nise, and said she had turned her hospital into a place that was inhabited by people who "weren't afraid of the unconscious."

"Elegantly combining a triumph-over-adversity yarn with a sensitive exploration of the redemptive power of artistic creation." - The Hollywood Reporter

Donnie Darko - the original theatrical cut!

Jun 30 to Jul 1
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Richard Kelly - 2001 - 113m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation - $8 general / $6 students

DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF BUBONICON 49

BONUS!  LOCAL ARTIST POSTER FOR SALE BY JEREMY MONTOYA!

Fifteen years before Stranger Things, Richard Kelly set the template and the high-water mark with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium.

Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank's maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.

Described by its director as ''The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick'', Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and ER star Noah Wyle and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran.
