The Turnblads' (Divine, Jerry Stiller) plus-size daughter (Ricki Lake) rocks a segregated TV dance show in 1960s Baltimore.  Funny as heck and a good message to boot, (!) this is the original 1988 one that includes Sonny Bono and Debra Harry as parents of a rival young girl plus Ric Ocasek and Pia Zadora as pot-smoking beatniks.  

"Not only Waters's best movie, but a crossover gesture that expands his appeal without compromising his vision one iota" - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Revenge

Jul 13 to Jul 14
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm

Dir. Coralie Fargeat - 2018 - 108m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special! $8 General / $6 Students

Debut director Coralie Fargeat announces her stunning arrival, painting a crimson canvas of hypnotic beauty and bloody retribution in this razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller.

Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz, Rings) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly––and viciously––intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge.

A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, REVENGE gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.  

“A bloody middle finger ... a kick in the balls with a feminine combat boot. You've been warned, gents.” - David Fear, Rolling Stone

Fargeat avoids modern cliches, such as altered timelines or found footage, to deliver a suspenseful nail-biter of a thriller, one that updates an old format with an interesting take on gender politic.” - John Lui, The Straits Times (Singapore)

“A stunning reinvention of the rape-revenge exploitation film that had me sitting at the edge of my seat first frame to last.” - Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

Complex sociological themes run through this science-fiction classic about three astronauts marooned on a futuristic planet where apes rule and humans are slaves. The stunned trio discovers that these highly intellectual simians can both walk upright and talk. They have even established a class system and a political structure. The astronauts suddenly find themselves part of a devalued species, trapped and imprisoned by the apes.

“By its appeal to both the imagination and the intellect within a context of action and elemental adventure, in its relevance to the consuming issues of its time...Planet of the Apes is that rare film which will transcend all age and social groupings.” - John Mahoney, Hollywood Reporter

“As illuminatingly bleak a statement on human hubris as a Hollywood superproduction has given us.”- Keith Uhlich, Time Out

“Planet of the Apes is an amazing film.” - Variety Staff

How To Talk To Girls At Parties

Aug 17 to Aug 18
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. John Cameron Mitchell - 2018 - 103m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special! $8 General / $6 Students

From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman (“American Gods,” Coraline) and glam-rock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus) comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, How To Talk To Girls At Parties.  Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn. Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love. 

“As the surface narrative becomes crazier and more unhinged, Mitchell stays focused on the film's many astute themes, including what it truly means to be a parent.”- Oktay Ege Kozak, Paste Magazine
