Django! - The Original 1966 Spaghetti Western Classic!

Sep 1 to Sep 2
Saturday and Sunday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Sergio Corbucci - 1966 - 97m - Italy - In Italian & Spanish with English subtitles - No Matinees

“One of the greatest of all Spaghetti Westerns.” - Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner

BONUS! New Mexico film historian, Jeff Berg, has been watching 'spaghetti' westerns since they first started being released in the United States.   Through independent study, Berg has gathered a lengthy and in depth knowledge of the genre, several of which were shot partially in New Mexico.

Berg will be on hand for the Sunday September 2nd screening to do a brief introduction of Eurowesterns and offer a few tidbits this immortal classic western! 

See the original on the big screen in Italian (yeah, Franco Nero's actual voice!) with English subtitles!

Franco Nero (KEOMA, DIE HARD 2) stars as the lone stranger who roams the West dragging a coffin filled with chaos towards a destiny ruled by vengeance. Co-writer/director Sergio Corbucci (THE GREAT SILENCE, COMPANEROS) packs his landmark classic with indelible images, unforgettable performances and some of the most shocking brutality of any 'Spaghetti Western' ever made. This is the still-controversial epic that defined a genre, launched a phenomenon and inspired over 50 unofficial sequels. This is the one and only DJANGO!

Through this gripping story, DARK MONEY uncovers the shocking and vital truth of how American elections are bought and sold.

“FOUR STARS! A political thriller, complete with crusading reporters, suddenly discovered caches of incriminating documents, and courtroom climaxes” – CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR

“Dark Money” unravels like a mystery film, a ‘whodunit’ documentary of sorts that centers around a local investigative journalist’s efforts to follow the money and expose the truth behind instances of anonymous, or “dark” money influencing Republican primaries in the state.” – NBC NEWS

“Timely, intelligent and well-made expose. Every voter should see this.” – THE MERCURY NEWS

“One of the most important films in years.” – BAY AREA REPORTER

Bad Reputation: The Joan Jett Documentary!

Sep 26 to Sep 27
Tuesday 7pm only / Wednesday 5pm, 7pm

Dir. Kevin Kerslake - 2018 - 94m - No Matinees

It’s true, Joan Jett became mega-famous from the number-one hit "I Love Rock n Roll," but thats only part of the story. That fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV, world tours and many hits to follow like "I Hate Myself for Loving You," but that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, starting her record label out of the trunk of a car after being rejected by 23 labels, and influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshit style. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene and the rocky road to rock stardom decades on. Their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: Even though people tried to define Jett, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.

“Certainly a good film that will entertain hardcore fans and those unfamiliar with Jett's music. Joan Jett truly is a remarkable human being.” - Anthony Ray Bench, Film Threat
