Sat 7 Mar
directed by Amy Heckerling starring Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Brittany Murphy (1995)
Could this be the best Jane Austen adaptation ever? Fer sure! The tidy world of Cher (Alicia Silverstone in an amazing performance) — a self-styled upper-crust high school matchmaker — starts to unravel with the sudden appearance of two total Baldwins (hunks): a sexy and stylish new classmate (Justin Walker), and Cher’s square but cute “ex-stepbrother” (Paul Rudd). 20th Anniversary! As if!

Sat 14 Mar
directed by Joel Potrykus starring Joshua Burge (2014)
Marty is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small-town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo® Power Glove, and a bad temper. Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger in this hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? [35mm]
directed by Robert Zemeckis starring Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd (1988)
It’s 1947 Hollywood and Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), a down-on-his-luck private detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar Roger Rabbit. When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, who begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer. Good luck getting Christopher Lloyd’s maniacal laugh out of your head.

The Room [35mm]
directed by Tommy Wiseau starring Tommy Wiseau, Juliette Danielle and Greg Sestero (2003)
This “electrifying American black comedy about love, passion, betrayal and lies” stars (and was directed, written and produced by) the mysterious Tommy Wiseau, and has been a cult favorite in LA since 2003!. “Enter The Room and leave forever changed!”
“Must be seen to be disbelieved.” —The Chicagoist

The Rocky Horror Picture Show [35mm]
directed by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick (1975)
This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).
The film, co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien, bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.

The Beyond [35mm]
directed by Lucio Fulci starring Catriona MacColl, David Warbeck and Cinzia Monreale (1981)
A remote and cursed hotel, built over one of the seven gateways to Hell, becomes a yawning malevolent abyss that begins devouring both the bodies and the souls of all who enter in a graphic frenzy of gory crucifixions, chunkblowing chain-whippings, eyeball impalements, sulphuric acid meltdowns, flesh-eating tarantulas, throat-shredding demon dogs and ravenous bloodthirsty zombies. The Beyond is a towering achievement in hair-raising, mind-bending cinematic terror!

Life of Brian [35mm]
directed by Terry Jones (1979)
Just in time for Easter, Monty Python delivers the group’s sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood’s epic films. Set in 33 A.D. Judea as the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change, with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe them. Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a stable, is caught up in the new religion though his mother says he’s not the messiah.
