Britt Marie Was Here

Nov 15 to Nov 18
Friday to Monday 4pm, 8:15

Dir. Tuva Novotny - 2019 - 94m - Sweden - In Swedish with English subtitles

Based on the bestselling novel by author Fredrik Backman (A Man Called Ove), this warmhearted comedy-drama finds Britt-Marie, age 63, suddenly reconsidering her purpose in life after she discovers her husband of 40 years has been cheating on her. Accepting a supremely unglamorous job at a ramshackle youth center in the backwater town of Borg, she reluctantly takes on the impossible task of coaching the children’s soccer team to victory. Despite having no experience and no resources, Britt-Marie is invigorated by the team's infectious energy and, for the first time maybe ever, allows herself to step out of her comfort zone—and into a potential romance with a charming local police officer. Anchored by an affecting performance from Swedish stalwart Pernilla August (Fanny and Alexander), this sophomore feature from actor turned director Tuva Novotny (Blind Spot) is both a tender and droll reminder that it's never too late for second chances.

"A lovely tale of reinvention from the writer of A Man Called Ove, featuring Swedish acting royalty Pernilla August." - James Verniere, Boston Herald

"[Backman] and director Tuva Novotny keep the characters astringent and his tone wry, so it never gets cuddly or cloying." - Nell Minow, RogerEbert.com

Mister America

Nov 15 to Nov 18
Friday to Monday 6:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Eric Notarnicola - 2019 - 86m - No Matinees

MISTER AMERICA follows Tim Heidecker's delusional attempt to enter the world of politics. After beating a murder charge for selling faulty e-cigarettes at an EDM festival, Tim seeks revenge by running an absurd campaign to unseat the San Bernardino District Attorney. Fueled by ego and ignorance, he tries to surmount a lack of experience, funds and likeability by personally connecting with unsuspecting constituents. It does not go well.

"This ever-growing mythology is impressive, creating a satirical monster that continues to grow more and more tentacles while cleverly lambasting one topic after another." - Adam Patterson, Film Pulse

"If nothing else, Mister America cements Tim Heidecker as one of our more unique and uncompromising comic visionaries." - Nicholas Laskin, The Playlist

Wrinkles The Clown

Nov 15
Friday 10:30pm only!

Dir. Michael Beach Nichols - 2019 - 78m - No Matinees

BONUS!  Introduction by Benjamin Radford, author of Bad Clowns, who appears in the film!

"Wrinkles the Clown is more Banksy than Bozo." - Josh Goller, Spectrum Culture

In late 2014, a low-res video of a person in a clown mask emerging from underneath a sleeping child's bed appears on YouTube. The description below the video claims that the clown is named "Wrinkles," that he lives in southwest Florida, and that he's been hired by the child's parents to frighten her for misbehaving. The video goes viral. Soon, more mysterious videos of Wrinkles scaring children appear online, along with a phone number to hire him for "behavioral services." Wrinkles becomes internet lore - a whole genre of YouTube videos of kids filming themselves calling him appears online, and over a million messages are left at the number. Voicemails range from disturbing to hilarious to terrifying: parents use the number to terrify their children, kids who are obsessive fans of creepy clowns reach out to make a new friend, children threaten to inflict wildly creative violence if he comes anywhere near them. But who is Wrinkles, and why is he doing this? With incredible access to the mastermind behind the mask, Wrinkles the Clown is a cryptic and playful exploration of these questions, as well as an inside look at myth-building and the unpredictable spread of imagination in the Internet age.  

"Comedic elements [are] key to the film, which soon delivers a twis that casts its entire portrait in a different light, causing viewers to reassess not only what they've just seen, but also their assumptions about cinematic and internet truth circa 2019." - Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

"Nichols knew how to hold my attention, Wrinkles the Clown a celebration of petrifying delights that had my guts twisted into unbreakable knots." - Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

Nov 19 to Nov 21
Tuesday to Thursday 4:30, 8:30

Dir. Robin McKenna - 2019 - 90m

ALSO PLAYING TUESDAY NOVEMBER 26 TO THURSDAY NOVEMBER 28 AT THE SAME SHOW TIMES!

Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, GIFT is a richly cinematic film, interweaving character driven stories. On North America’s Pacific Northwest Coast, a young Indigenous artist and carver undertakes the elaborate preparations for a potlatch – to make a name for himself by giving everything away. In Rome, Italy, a factory occupied by migrant families is transformed into a living museum, protected by a barricade of art : a model of resistance, and an invaluable gift. In the pirate utopia of Burning Man, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey in a post-­apocalyptic desert landscape. Meanwhile, in Auckland, New Zealand, artist Lee Mingwei prepares to launch Sonic Blossom – a “transformative gift” of song.

GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labour in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination.

"At a time when art is relentlessly commercialized and commodified, Robin McKenna's "Gift" provides a gentle and welcome reminder of other values." - A.O. Scott, New York Times

"A call to action to bolster the transformative power of gifting globally, McKenna’s film is a much needed meditation on the role of sharing in the world today." - Creative Commons

"Stunning" - National Gallery of Australia

"Marvelous and inspiring" - Lewis Hyde, author of The Gift 

“GIFT presents us with a rare opportunity to escape the relentless logic of the market and to reclaim a little bit of our human freedom.” - -Le Devoir

A Bigger Splash: A New Restoration of the 70s David Hockney doc!

Nov 22 to Nov 25
Friday to Monday 6:15pm only!

Dir. Jack Hazan - 1973 - 106m - No Matinees

"One of the finest films I've seen about an artist and his work." - Martin Scorsese

An intimate and innovative film about English-born, often California-based artist David Hockney and his work, honoring its subject through creative risk-taking.  Hazan creates an improvisatory narrative-nonfiction hybrid featuring Hockney, a wary participant, as well as his circle of friends, capturing the agonized end of the lingering affair between Hockney and his muse, an American artist named Peter Schlesinger. The result is at once a time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 1970s, an honest-yet-tender depiction of gay male romance that dispenses with the then-current narratives of self-hatred and self-pity, an invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.

"A too-little-seen masterpiece of queer cinema, ‘A Bigger Splash’ honors Hockney and his mesmerizing work with a portrait of the artist worthy of his creative genius.” - Jude Dry, IndieWire

“An intimate portrait of David Hockney and his friends and lovers in the early 1970s, almost each frame a vibrant picture of a time, place, and sensibility in the arts.” - Andy Humm, Gay City News 

"Best film of the year. Outstanding for its nearly perfect stylistic recreation of the deceptively placid surfaces of the painter's canvases, as well as in conveying the humour, irony, and theatricality which go to make up Hockney's sensibility. No film I have seen this year has left me with quite so many vivid visual images to cherish." - Jack Babuscio, Gay News

“A landmark of queer cinema.” - Leo Allanach, The Advocate 

“An important flashpoint in the history of LGBT cinema. ‘A Bigger Splash’ finds intimacy in the space between life and art.” - Wes Greene, Slant Magazine 

“A time capsule of hedonistic gay life in the 70s, an honest-yet-tender depicting of gay male romance that dispenses with the then-current narratives of self-hatred and self-pity.” - Nicole DeMarco, i-D 

“Hot, heavy, and romantic. 'A Bigger Splash' is a rare film from the era that represents both gay love and gay sex.” - Justine Smith, Hyperallergic 

"A synthesis of documentary, cinema verite and psychodrama that's entirely original." - Derek Malcolm, Arts Guardian

“Among the most strikingly original films on a modern artist.” - Philip French, The Guardian

“An invaluable view of art history in action, and a record of artistic creation that is itself a work of art.” - Mark Johnson, Gay Star News 

“A seminal cinematic portrait of David Hockney…true to Hockney’s now-iconic form.” - Samuel Anderson, V Magazine 

“Truer than the truth…a valuable record of a world now vanished.” - Vincent Dowd, BBC News 

“At once precise and dream like. Through Hazan's use of imaginative camera set ups and his contempt for the traditional unfocussed backgrounds, the film acquires a visual solidity and strength, maintaining a genuinely surreal insight into the merging worlds of internal fantasy and external 'reality'...Art imitates life and life imitates art. In the film the two are an organic whole, inseparable elements of an individual consciousness." - Margaret Tarratt, Films and Filming

“Restored down to the last ripple, like Hockney himself, hale and fruitful at the age of eighty-one, the film has weathered well.” - Anthony Lane, The New Yorker 

"Beautiful to behold." - Melissa Anderson, Artforum

Tammy and the T-Rex (Gore Cut) - the 1994 wtf rediscovery flick!

Nov 22 to Nov 23
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Stewart Raffill - 1994 - 90m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 General / $6 Students

"The cult entertainment level of Tammy And The T-Rex is simply off the charts." - Ed Travis, Cinapse

DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF BUBONICON 52 !

It’s the 25th Anniversary of 2019’s most unbelievable repertory film discovery. Directed by Stewart Raffill (MAC AND ME, THE ICE PIRATES), TAMMY AND THE T-REX is a love story as old as time.

This post-JURASSIC jam stars Denise Richards (STARSHIP TROOPERS, WILD THINGS) and the late Paul Walker (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS) in an unprecedented mishmash of rom-com tropes and R-rated horror thrills. When Paul's mauled by the local zoo’s toothier residents, his love affair with Denise doesn’t cease — even after his brain is transplanted into an ancient animatronic predator. Oh, and did we mention “Bernie” from WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S is the villain?

Originally filmed as a gorefest w/ impressive splatter by SFX guru John Carl Buechler, TAMMY’s only minimal release back in the day was cut to PG-13, funneled straight-to-video and inexplicably marketed as a “kids’ film.” Thanks to the intrepid efforts of top-notch archival pals Vinegar Syndrome, this gonzo gem is fully restored and ready to scorch your audience's ganglia into dust!

"You're watching Tammy and The T-Rex with a room full of friends, additional substances to ease out forthcoming giggles, and hunger for "so bad it's good" cinema on an inconceivable level." - Matt Donato, Slashfilm

The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

Nov 22 to Nov 25
Friday to Monday 4:15, 8:30

Dir. Alison Reid - 2019 - 83m - Canada

In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, 23-year-old biologist Anne Innis Dagg made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to study giraffes in the wild.  In THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES Anne (now 85) retraces her steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today. Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist’, whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have each experienced triumphs as well as setbacks. THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES gives us a moving perspective on both.

"Alison Reid deserves high praise for fine storytelling, combining ecology and social-justice issues while focusing on a woman ahead of her times, whose ambitions were thwarted by institutional sexism." - Bruce DeMara, Toronto Star

"The film is a triumph and inspiration." - Steven Prokopy, Third Coast Review

"The Woman Who Loves Giraffes shows the important scientific contributions and fascinating life of a giraffe-loving feminist pioneer." - Gillian Anderson, The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

Greener Grass

Nov 29 to Dec 2
Friday to Monday 8:15pm

Dir. Jocelyn DeBoer & Dawn Luebbe - 2019 - 97m - No Matinees

"A movie that's not only immediately destined for cult status - it's the rare movie that truly earns it." - Geoff Berkshire, Los Angeles Times

In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life—starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That’s just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is the feature debut from writers-directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, a hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to be an instant cult classic.

"As enticing as it is bizarre, and even if you don't immediately find yourself frolicking amidst its braces-wearing populace, give it time: you'll eventually be lured in by their take on suburban normal." - Anne T. Donahue, Globe and Mail

"It's gloriously nonsensical - and yet, it reverberates with eerie truth." - Andee Tagle, NPR

"The repetition can start to feel overdone, but the best jokes are acutely-crafted and sold with impressive deadpan by DeBoer, Carden and Bennett." - Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap
