Yakuza Apocalypse

Apr 29 to Apr 30
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Takashi Miike - 2015 - 115m - Japan - In Japanese with English subtitles - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students with i.d.s

A cinematic whirlwind that represents director Takashi Miike at his most delightfully unhinged!

In this film, fearsome Yakuza boss Kamiura is also a bloodsucking vampire. One day, men arrive from a competing clan and deliver him an ultimatum: Play nice or die. Kamiura refuses and, during a fierce battle, is torn limb from limb. With his dying breath, he passes on his vampire powers to his loyal lieutenant, Kageyama. His first order of business is to avenge his mentor, setting him on a collision course with the seemingly unstoppable foreign syndicate, and take his place as the new Yakuza boss.

“The kind of free-for-all only Miike could stage-pitting not merely different characters, but different genres and tones against each other, until the world cracks in two under the weight.” - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club

“Memorably bizarre” - Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

"In the opening for both days of the festival, DREAM ON, acclaimed political comedian John Fugelsang retraces the journey of Alexis de Tocqueville, whose study of our young country in 1831 came to define America as a place where anyone could climb the ladder of economic opportunity. Following in the Frenchman's footsteps, Fugelsang speaks with fast-food workers and retirees, prisoners and entrepreneurs, undocumented immigrants and community organizers about their hopes, dreams, and daily struggles. DREAM ON explores whether the optimistic spirit of the American Dream that Tocqueville observed is alive and well in the twenty-first century, or whether George Carlin was right when he famously quipped "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."  FOR ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE, CLICK HERE.

"We are thrilled to present PRIDE for the finale film of the Albuquerque day of the New Mexico Labor Film Festival. This special screening of PRIDE is sponsored by Equality New Mexico and Progress Now New Mexico. Based on a true story, the film highlights the collaboration of the LGBT activists and mineworkers during the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984. Each realized together they could better fight against the anti-labor anti-equality government in power under Margaret Thatcher. This acclaimed film has charmed audiences as well as well as stood as an example of important lesson that workers justice is based on the principle of equality for everyone."   FOR ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE, CLICK HERE.
