TONIGHT! February 13ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND (2004) & PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE (2002) – A double-feature of films celebrating the surreality of love on this, the eve of Valentine’s Day.

Tuesday, February 14 | Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans – This 1927 silent film by German director F.W. Murnau tells a story of infidelity and reconciliation, earning three Academy Awards and a place in the National Film Registry. The film junkies at the Cinefamily are, obviously, the best people to show it to you in all its glory — and it’s worth seeing on a big screen, if only for Sunrise‘s fairy-tale, $200,000 set (around $2.5 million in 2012 dollars).

Have Yourself A Campy Little Christmas!

We are ticketing holiday events galore this month and I’ve been trying to suggest events that offer something a little bit different than the usual fare. We know you’ve seen “It’s A Wonderful Life” a thousand times, so how about mixing it up a little bit? Well, our friends at New Beverly Cinema and the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles, The Castro Theatre in San Francisco, The Royale in Mesa, Arizona and the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, New York got you covered. We’re talking serial killer Santas, Santa abducted by aliens, tormented sorority girls on Christmas break, vintage holiday curios from Johnny Legend, beer-pong with John McClane and the Griswolds and holiday-themed film noir.

Check it out!

Saturday, December 10  CHRISTMAS EVIL (1980) at midnight at New Beverly Cinema  Los Angeles, California  A psycho in a Santa suit gets to decide who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Read the rest of this entry »
