Night Warning – VHS Screening

Saturday, October 1st at 10:00 PM

$7 Public | $5 Members

Seventeen-year-old high school senior Billy Lynch (Jimmy McNichol) was raised by his maternal aunt, Cheryl Roberts (Susan Tyrrell), with who he has lived since the age of three, when his parents died in a tragic accident. As never married Aunt Cheryl has not dated over that time, it has been only her and Billy in the big, old house next to the woods. Billy hopes to get a basketball scholarship to the University of Denver, where his girlfriend of one year, Julie Linden (Julia Duffy), will be attending. Aunt Cheryl, in her possessiveness of Billy, doesn’t let Julie into the house and doesn’t want Billy to go away to college. What those around her don’t know is that Cheryl is deranged and will do whatever it takes to keep Billy all to herself. What Billy also does not know is that there is an unknown third in his and Aunt Cheryl’s relationship, that third who is either the cause of or has exacerbated her derangement. Aunt Cheryl’s actions lead to Billy being implicated in a murder and Billy’s plea of innocence is not helped by the narrow-mindedness of the lead police detective, hyper-masculine Lieutenant Joe Carlson (Bo Svenson). Billy, those close to him and anyone who gets too close to discovering the truth about Aunt Cheryl could be in danger at her hands in the process. (1981, 96 mins)

Alphaville
A tribute to Jean-Luc Godard (1930-2022)

Monday, October 17th at 7:30 PM
$15 Public | $10 Members
The Cinema Arts Centre pays tribute to legendary filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard (1930-2022), with a big screen showing of Alphaville, one of his most playful and influential works. This classic of the French New Wave cinema is a dazzling amalgam of film noir and science fiction. Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine), a hero Godard borrowed from a series of French adventure films, travels from the Outlands to Alphaville, the becalmed territory ruled by the computer Alpha 60 where “No one has ever lived in the past, no one will ever live in the future, the present is the form of all life.” His mission is to eliminate Professor Von Braun, the creator of the almost-human Alpha 60. When Caution meets the scientist’s beautiful daughter Natasha (Anna Karina), the forbidden, illogical power of love opens the path to liberation. Without any flashy special effects, Godard used the modernist buildings of 1960s Paris to dazzlingly evoke the city of the future. Godard visually abstracted the Paris of 1964 by way of 1940s Hollywood in order to foreground its smoothly engineered consumer-driven impersonality. (1965, 99 mins, French with English Subtitles)

Nosferatu (100th Anniversary Screening)
with live score performed by The Invincible Czars

Tuesday, October 18th at 7:30 PM
$25 Public | $20 Members
Nosferatu is most certainly the most important horror film of the silent era and one of the first vampire movies — though it was almost completely lost when Bram Stoker‘s widow sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village of Wisborg. Hutter travels to Transylvania to sell a piece of property in Wisborg to Count Orlok. Hutter stays in Orlok’s castle only to learn that the Count is a vampire. Orlok purchases a house next to Hutter’s, locks Hutter in the castle and travels to Wisborg. On the way, he manages to possess Hutter’s employer and Ellen and strike the village with an outbreak of the plague. Hutter rushes home to stop him before it’s too late.

Fans, theaters and media have praised The Invincible Czars’ soundtrack for making the near century-old movie “actually scary” for modern day audiences since they debuted it in 2015. the band has performed well over 100 times across the US and Canada. In 2021, they updated the soundtrack to include drums and a little more rock edge while retaining their signature delicate creepiness.Using a mix of acoustic and electric instruments helped. Violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, voices and vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, piano and percussion all play prominent roles in the score and are a sight to behold when performed live by only four or five players!  (1922, 94 mins)

October’s featured act is No Fuss and Feathers — the “heck-of-a-good-time” collaboration hatched by Catherine Miles & Jay Mafale, Karyn Oliver, and Carolann Solebello. Shaken or stirred, NFF serves up a dynamic, cohesive cocktail of delicious harmonies, infectious rhythm, and spontaneous hilarity — with award-winning songwriting always present on stage. Individually, the four are nationally touring performers who have charted at the top of folk and Americana radio and appeared at some of the nation’s most respected music festivals. Collectively, they are an incorrigible bunch of musical co-conspirators bent on giving their audience an unforgettable show. Sometimes referred to as a modern folk quartet, No Fuss and Feathers is truly a mix of the styles of the three songwriting entities: pop-infused-literate folk, bluesy-country-tinged acoustic, and Brooklyn-edged-Americana.

Best of the Big Screen

Lawrence Of Arabia (60th Anniversary Screening)
Tuesday, October 25th at 7 PM

$15 Public | $10 Members
The film that defines “epic,” Lawrence of Arabia is oversized in every way, from director David Lean’s sweeping vision, to its sweeping plot exploring T.E. Lawrence‘s (Peter O’Toole) experiences in the Ottoman Empire’s provinces of Hejaz and Greater Syria during World War I, in particular his attacks on Aqaba and Damascus and his involvement in the Arab National Council. Its grand themes include Lawrence’s emotional struggles with the personal violence inherent in war, his own identity, and his divided allegiance between his native Britain with its army and his new-found comrades within the Arabian desert tribes. And then there are its groundbreaking performances (O’TooleAlec GuinnessAnthony Quinn), its panoramic vistas, its impact (what “best-of” list isn’t it on?), and, of course, its length. Quite simply, they don’t make ’em like this anymore. (1962, 216 mins, PG)
