Thursday, May 30th, 2013

Happy Thursday Music Boxers,

This week we open We Steal Secrets: The Story Of WikiLeaks. Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, the new film from Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi To The Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room) details the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Rolling Stone calls it “Beautiful and profound”.

Our new matinee series celebrates one of the great screen couples of all time, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers! Fall in love with this dancing dou every weekend in June. The series kicks off this weekend with The Gay Divorcee, a charming case of mistaken identity, featuring a stunning rendition of Cole Porter’s “Night and Day”.

At midnight this weekend, it’s the cult sequel Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls. Roger Ebert’s script for this Russ Meyer mondo is a delicious sendup of Hollywood fashioned hippie culture, effectively exploiting exploitation films. Come experience the music and the madness!

See you at the movies

We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks

A film by Alex Gibney starring Julian Assange, Adrian Lamo

 

In seeking to expose abuse in the corridors of power, Assange and Manning were undermined by forces within and without, as well as by their own human failings. We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth.


“The movie is beautiful and profound, an incredible story that’s about many things all at once, including the incredible Shakespearean narrative that is the life of Julian Assange, a free-information radical who has become an uncompromising guarder of secrets.”
–Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone

Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney’s We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks details the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history.

Hailed by some as a free-speech hero and by others as a traitor and terrorist, the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall are paralleled with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers, revealing the behind-the-scenes workings of the government’s international diplomacy and military strategy.
