Their message is brutally clear: Destroy the old and make way for the new. This is the punk's violent revolution; Their lawless world. This is THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION: A Riveting, unflinching account of the punk rock phenomenon and its alienated, reactionary subculture. This fierce, bleak portrait documents L.A.'s infamous punk bands as they perform on stage and discuss their lives, music and philosophy off stage. Through interviews with punk fans, music critics and club owners, it is a crucial, compelling statement of the most significant and influential youth movementand musical transformation of the past 3 decades.
Penelope Spheeris' THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION was perceived as shocking and outrageous at the time of its original release in 1981 and its two follow-up films were no less extraordinary and revealing. Today, museums and educational institutions around the world present them as a historically significant works of art. Featuring some of the most influential and innovative musicians and groups of all time – Germs, Black Flag, X, Fear, Circle Jerks, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne, these riveting, unflinching and hard-core films adeptly captured the spirit of a major cultural phenomenon.
"A bracing, stimulating and technically superb close-up look at the L.A. punk scene." – Variety
"CINEMATIC ADRENALINE." – Village Voice
"FOUR STARS POWERFUL, AWESOME, FRIGHTENING." – San Francisco Examiner
"A MUST SEE." – New York Post

Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!
Dir. Penelope Spheeris - 1988 - 93m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation!
HEADS UP! PART 3 WILL PLAY DECEMBER 4 & 5 AT 10:30PM!
From the Director of DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION and SUBURBIA comes the ultimate film about the world of heavy metal, THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PART Il: THE METAL YEARS. Interviews with some of the music industry's hardest rockers, like Aerosmith, Kiss, Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne. Performances by Faster Pussycat, Lizzy Borden, London, Odin and Megadeth.
In the mid 80's a new scene took over the Los Angeles nightlife--Heavy Metal. Loud, rude, sexy, sexist and anti-authoritarian. Penelope Spheeris' THE METAL YEARS takes an in-depth look at rabid fans, desperate groupies, wanna-be rock stars that go so far as to threaten suicide if they don't "make it." The film also portrays the harsh reality of the music business, where everyone's dream to become a star can't possibly come true. It's a real life "Spinal Tap" that makes us look back and ask, "What the hell were we doing?"
"Rather like watching a car wreck on the opposite side of a motorway." - Time Out
"Fascinating." - Film4
"This is a well-made, observant documentary, with attitude to spare and plenty of justifiable laughs at the expense of its subjects." - TV Guide's Movie Guide
Decline of Western Civilization III
Dec 4 to Dec 5
Friday and Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!
Dir. Penelope Spheeris - 1998 - 86m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation!
An unflinching look into the lives of the hardcore fans of punk rock in Los Angeles, 20 years later. Filmed over the course of 13 months , this 90 minute piece stands as the director's strongest work to date.
Whereas the first installment of the trilogy concerned itself with the birth of a new music genre, PART III focuses on the lifestyles and backgrounds of the fans. Many of them are homeless or occupy squats (abandoned buildings) as their living quarters. They simultaneously evoke emotions of deep empathy and severe distain, as they present a subculture that is impossible to ignore. DECLINE III delves into the underside of this subculture to indicate that Johnny Rotten’s “No Future” reference has taken on a new meaning.
The film is a strange coupling of comedy and tragedy, combining interviews with faithful fans, thought provoking accounts from those who have an intimate knowledge of the scene and live performances by underground bands: Final Conflict, Litmus Green, Naked Aggression, and The Resistance. Keith Morris (Circle Jerks), Rick Wilder (Mau Maus), and Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) compare the original late Seventies movement to present day punk rock. Unforgettable characters such as Why-Me?, Hamburger, Troll, Eyeball and Squid paint a seldom seen picture of life and death on the back streets of Hollywood.
"Undoubtedly Spheeris' most penetrating film to date." - Emily Bobrow, Film Journal International
