night of the living dead

directed by george romero (1968, 96 mins.)
no reservation necessary.
$10 donation tickets available at gate $5 parking
as a courtesy to other movie-goers: no tall chairs.

 

Probably the smartest and most frightening horror movie ever made, this is the original that started it all. With a limited budget, a simple idea and some great acting, this film was so compelling it terrified audiences around the country, and changed the genre forever. Seven strangers hide in a farmhouse when the dead begin to rise and eat the living. Not only must these people protect themselves from the horror outside, they must work together to survive. Night became a horror classic through innovative filmmaking and metaphor, shadows and hidden figures, not with blood and gore, definitely one of the reasons it is still so truly frightening. Join us for this special cemetery screening under the night sky!

bedazzled

directed by stanley donen (1967, 100 mins.)
no reservation necessary.
$10 donation tickets available at gate $5 parking
as a courtesy to other movie-goers: no tall chairs.

 

Stylish, playful, and outrageously funny, Bedazzled is a 60s mod gem. A ‘Swinging London’ take on the Faust story, it stars the incomparable comedy team of Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. Moore is a shy cook with a crush on a waitress at his work and when he meets the devil, played by Cook, he signs his soul over for seven chances to try and seduce her. He is transformed into an intellectual, a rich playboy, a rock star as he tries to romance his way into her heart. Raquel Welch is stunning as one of the seven deadly sins, (you can guess which one),and Cook’s turn as a rock star is one of the funniest mod moments in cinema! From the director of Singing in the Rain and Charade.

The classic gangster tale told by master filmmaker Martin Scorcese. Based on a true story, Henry Hill rises through through the ranks of the new york mafia in the 50s and 60s, moving from theft to murder. Goodfellas has become an iconic film, not only because of the rare glimpse into the secret world of the mob, but also the wild energy of the camera and hilarious and terrifying performances. Starring Ray Liotta, Robert Deniro and Joe Pesci, with an epic soundtrack loaded with the Rolling Stones, Nillson, the Shangri Las, George Harrison, Aretha Franklin and more.

Bogie and Bergman star in one of the most romantic and exuberant films ever made. Rick owns a nightclub in war-torn Morocco, and when he runs into an old flame (Bergman), the sparks fly fast and furious. With Bergman at her most starry eyed and glamorous, the wry wit of Bogie’s wisecracks, and the classic song ‘As Time Goes By’, Casablanca is one of the incomparable greats.

Fasten Your Seatbelts

San Francisco Weekly

By Michael Fox

 

We all have our favorite screen actresses, but none are more steadfast in their affections than gay men. Ask Doris Day, Elizabeth Taylor, or Cher, whose gay fans never wavered (unlike those fickle heteros) after the stars stepped away from the spotlight. But even these goddesses bow before the queen (or queen bitch) of gay esteem, Bette Davis. Her appeal derives from her ambisexuality in combination with such timeless personas as the holy-terror diva, the stalwart solitaire, and the camp heroine. Bay Area filmmaker Mike Black’s new documentary, Queer Icon: The Cult of Bette Davis, considers this fascinating phenomenon through a mix of vintage film clips and fresh interviews with a wealth of mostly local figures, such as impresario Marc Huestis and historian Matthew Kennedy. Actor Matthew Martin, who channels the star of All About Eve and Dark Victory onstage, supplies his unique perspective on the special place she has in gay men’s hearts. More than simply a lovefest, Queer Icon questions whether gays still need a role model like the fabulous Miss D. The film will surely find an enthusiastic audience when it plays the queer capitals of New York and Los Angeles, but tonight’s world premiere is bound to be an only-in-San-Francisco event. It won’t be tedious, darling.
