Young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon, where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than sleepwalking took place in the woods.  Treadaway (CONTROL) and Leslie (HBO’s GAME OF THRONES) give captivating leading performances as a couple that takes new love to disturbing depths. With romance slowing giving way to terror, writer/director Leigh Janiak puts her unique stamp on this intimate, chilling thriller.

Friday to Thursday 6pm

Dir. Ward Serrill - 2014 - 87m - No Matinees

BONUS!  PRODUCER BETSY CHASSE WILL BE HERE FOR THE OPENING FRIDAY SHOW & POSSIBLY THE SATURDAY ONE TOO!

Song of the New Earth features the transformative life journey of renowned sound healer, psychotherapist and modern day mystic Tom Kenyon from a young aspiring Nashville musician to an internationally revered sound alchemist. From giant caves in the south of France, to the golden-chandeliered symphony halls of Vienna to the snowy mountain peaks of Tibet, we join Kenyon's quest to integrate modern science's advances in sound research with the ancient mystic traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, Yoga, mystical Christianity, Shamanism, Egyptian alchemy and more. A visual and aural feast, Song of a New Earth provides viewers with a distinctive and intimate portrait of one man's mission to not only heal ourselves but ultimately our precious planet earth. A transcendent, original and healing experience this unique film transports viewers through Kenyon's rare, divine gift.

"The film is lulling, in a good way; like meditation or swinging in a hammock ... Oddly compelling and relaxing, Song of the New Earth is not a typical summer film, but it is a comforting one to idle away a dog-hot day and linger on thoughts about your own gifts and life." - Sara Wiltermood, Rogue Valley Messenger

The Trip To Italy

Oct 3 to Oct 9
Friday to Thursday 3:45, 8:00

Dir. Michael Winterbottom - 2014 - 108m - UK

Michael Winterbottom’s largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semifictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels.

Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity.

"At its heart, The Trip to Italy is more than just a travelogue about food. It's about friendship and the appetite for experience we all share." - Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly

"British comedians and dueling partners Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back in this witty and incisive follow-up to "The Trip."" - Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Man Who Laughs

Oct 4 to Oct 5
Saturday and Sunday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Paul Leni - 1928 - 110m - $5 General / $2 AFC Members

In an effort to top the critical and financial success of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera, studio head Carl Laemmle recruited two influential artists of the German Expressionist school: actor Conrad Veidt (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) and director Paul Leni (Waxworks). The shadowy exteriors, the carnival setting, the demonically misshapen "hero" made The Man Who Laughs something entirely new to American cinema-the foundation upon which the classic Universal horror films would be built. Veidt stars as Gwynplaine, a nobleman's son who is kidnapped by a political enemy, and then is mutilated by a gypsy "surgeon" who carves a monstrous smile upon his face. Finding shelter in a traveling freakshow, he falls in love with a blind girl (The Phantom Of the Opera's Mary Philbin), the one person who cannot be repulsed by his appearance. As years pass, the hand of fate draws Gwynplaine back into the world of political intrigue. He becomes the plaything of a jaded duchess (Freaks' Olga Baclanova), and his enemies renew their efforts to control him.

Come for the pie, stay for the slice...

In the summer of 2013, a theater troupe from Albuquerque, New Mexico decided to produce William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  Since most of the play takes place in a forest, the troupe decided to rehearse in the woods.  They rented a lovely cabin in the middle of the Sandia Mountains.  A documentary team joined them in order to capture the rehearsal process on film.  They ordered pizza.  It was delivered… and then something went horribly wrong.  The theater troupe never returned.  No one had any idea what happened to them... until now!

Memphis

Oct 20 to Oct 23
Monday to Thursday 6:45

Dir. Tim Sutton - 2014 - 82m

READ THE THOUGHTFUL SALON ARTICLE BY ANDREW O' HEHIR ON WHY MOVIES LIKE THIS MATTER HERE.

A strange singer with god given talent drifts through the mythic city of Memphis under its canopy of ancient oak trees, shattered windows, and burning spirituality. Surrounded by lovers, legends, hustlers, preachers, and a wolfpack of kids, the unstable performer avoids the recording studio and is driven to spend time in his own form of self-discovery. Shown in fragments, his journey drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension.

Featuring an explosive performance and score from the singular recording artist-cum-wizard, Willis Earl Beal, MEMPHIS is a film steeped in folklore, music, surrealism, and the abstract search for glory.

“In Tim Sutton’s second feature, “Memphis,” the musician Willis Earl Beal plays a blues singer of the same name, who is facing a devastating artistic crisis—a composing and performing block. His desperate efforts at self-healing take him on a spiritual journey through the city of the title as he encounters friends, confidants, and religious counsellors dispensing hard-earned wisdom. Memphis itself plays a leading role in the film, by way of richly textured, sunlight-imbued images of streets and houses, churches and roads. With his loamy mosaic of drifting moods and troubled memories, Sutton offers a pictorial translation of the blues, a vision of an American classicism sheltered by the urban landscape’s mystical embrace.” - Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Midnight Cowboy

Dir. John Schlesinger - 1969 - 113m

Daring. Provocative. Shocking. Compelling. Nearly thirty years after its original release, "Midnight Cowboy is still heartbreakingand timeless" (The New York Observer). This Academy Award winner* for Best Picture, Director and Screenplay also boasts Oscar-nominated** performances by Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, neither of whom have "ever been better on screen than they are here" (Chicago Tribune)! When Joe Buck (Voight), a good-looking,naively charming Texas "cowboy" makes his way to the Big Apple to seek his fortune, the only wealthhe finds is in the friendship of Ratso Rizzo (Hoffman), a scrounging, sleazy, small-time con man with big dreams. Living on the tattered fringe of society, these two outcasts develop an unlikely bond one that transcends their broken dreams and get-rich-quick schemes and makes Midnight Cowboy "that rarest of things: [a film] every bit as moving now as it was when it was [first] released" (Premiere).

"I cannot recall a more marvelous pair of acting performances in any one film." - Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

"Superb performances and a compelling script have made this film a strange mix of Oscar-winner and Cult Classic." - Adam Smith, Empire Magazine

1000 Times Goodnight

Oct 24 to Oct 29
Friday to Wednesday 3:00, 7:30

Dir. Erik Poppe - 2014 - 111m - Norway

Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. After a near-death experience chronicling the ritual of a female suicide bomber, husband Marcus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) levels an ultimatum: give up the dangerous profession or lose the family she counts on being there when she returns from each assignment. Yet the conviction that her photos can make a difference keeps pulling at Rebecca's resolve, making it difficult for her to walk away entirely. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.

"An affecting drama. Deeply compelling....[Binoche's] transformation is as unsettling as the violence she's chronicling." – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

"[A] gripping, emotionally resonant drama...starring French luminary Juliette Binoche."

– Ronnie Scheib, Variety

"Elegant and aesthetically pleasing! Binoche is particularly terrific." – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

Awake: The Life of Yogananda

Oct 25 to Oct 26
Saturday and Sunday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Paola di Florio & Lisa Leeman - 2014 - 84m - All Seats $7

An unconventional biography about the Hindu Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. Paramahansa Yogananda authored the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. (Apparently, it was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad.) By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient Vedic teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and inspiring the millions who practice yoga today.

Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries around the world, the documentary examines the world of yoga, modern and ancient, east and west and explores why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the limitations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.

Archival material from the life of Yogananda (who died in 1952) creates a spine for the narrative, but the film stretches the dimensions of a standard biography. The footage includes stylized interviews, metaphoric imagery and recreations, taking us from holy pilgrimages in India to Harvard’s Divinity School and its cutting-edge physics labs, from the Center for Science and Spirituality at the University of Pennsylvania to the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. By evoking the journey of the soul as it pushes its way through the oppression of the human ego and delusion of the material world, the film creates an experiential immersion into the unseen realms. AWAKE is ultimately the story of humanity itself: the universal struggle of all beings to free themselves from suffering and to seek lasting happiness.

A VOICE IN THE DARK - Svengali (1931) and The Phantom of the Opera (1925)

Oct 30 to Oct 31
Thursday and Friday only!

A DOUBLE FEATURE - No matinees!

A happy, harrowing Halloween DOUBLE FEATURE (that's 2 movies for one price!) in old school style!  Two famous horror classics projected from rare film prints!

6PM - Svengali (1931) Directed by Archie Mayo, approx. 78m

George DuMaurier’s supernatural tale of the mysterious Parisian artist who uses his hypnotic powers to transform his untalented model, Trilby, into the singing sensation of Europe, but cannot command her love was the basis for this Pre-Code classic.  And who better to play the title role than the one and only John Barrymore? His performance is supported tremendously by the stunning visual effects and overall expressionist look of the film, courtesy of Art Director Anton Grot and Cinematographer Barney McGill, both of whom were Oscar-nominated for their work. Watch ‘Svengali’ and be amazed!  Approx. 78m  View a clip

8PM - The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) Directed by Rupert Julian, approx. 78m

Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel, with its crowd-pleasing blend of suspense, romance, and gothic horror, has been filmed numerous times. Yet, for all the subsequent remakes, this original silent gem, starring the great Lon Chaney, Sr., remains the definitive version.

Tony Rayns of “Time Out” put it perfectly: “…Chaney’s best ever phantom, his face scarred to hell by acid, unmasked at the organ by the timorous heroine; the phantom stopping a costume ball when he appears as the Red Death; the phantom shrouded in the most romantic cape ever seen, perched on top of the statue of Apollo to eavesdrop on the lovers. And the sustained crescendo of the end is still unrivalled.”

Presented with a synchronized score of –what else?- organ music!  View a trailer.

Dir. Tommy Wirkola - 2014 - 100m - Norway/Iceland - in Norwegian and English with English subtitles - an ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS presentation! $8 general / $6 students - DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF STRANGER FACTORY!

If the worst day of your life consisted of accidentally killing your girlfriend with an axe, chain-sawing your own arm off, and watching in horror as your closest friends were devoured by a zombified Nazi battalion, you’d have to assume that things couldn’t get much worse. In Martin’s case, that was only the beginning.

Picking up immediately where the original left off, Dead Snow; Red vs. Dead wastes no time getting right to the gore-filled action, leaving a bloody trail of intestines in its wake. Director Tommy Wirkola returns to the helm with a vengeance, coming up with more inventive ways to maim and dismember than you ever thought possible. Combining wry humor with horrific worst-case scenarios, this follow-up to the 2009 Midnight classic is sure to shock the weak-of-heart and delight even the most hard-core fans of the horror genre. Colonel Herzog is back, and he is not to be f&*ked with.

"Bigger, brasher, bloodier, and with more bowels, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is a blast." - Brian Tallerico, Film Threat

A concert film that captures the human element of björk's multi-disciplinary multimedia project: biophilia. Recorded live at björk's show at london's alexandra palace in 2013, the film features björk and her band performing every song on 'biophilia' and more using a broad variety of instruments - some digital, some traditional and some completely unclassifiable. the film has already been hailed as " a captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers" (variety) and " an imaginative stand-alone artwork" (hollywood reporter) and is a vital piece of the grand mosaic that is 'biophilia.'

FACEBOOK & TWITTER

"A dazzling audiovisual spectacle that benefits from the full cinematic treatment . . . Heavenly constellations billow across dark sections of screen above the stage, sometimes engulfing Björk like she is some kind of gargantuan space goddess. . . . there are some gorgeous emotional depths here too, especially when the swooping harmonies of [the accompanying all-female Icelandic chorus] are given full rein." - The Hollywood Reporter

"There are not many artists who can combine the lifecycle of a jellyfish with a breakbeat and make it work. But this is an extraordinary piece, perhaps more an opera, where Björk and drummer Manu Delago are at their virtuosic best. It's utterly bonkers yet moving – especially a strange love song set to a mutating virus. It should be mandatory viewing for anyone about to dam a glacial river to facilitate aluminium smelting." - The Guardian

Rocks in My Pocket

Nov 7 to Nov 9
Friday to Sunday 6:30pm Only!

Dir. Signe Baumane - 2014 - 88m - In English

WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL FILM CRITICS (FIPRESCI) PRIZE

KARLOVY VARY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

In the new animated gem Rocks in My Pockets, Latvian-born artist and filmmaker Signe Baumane tells five fantastical tales based on the courageous women in her family and their battles with madness. With boundless imagination and a twisted sense of humor, she has created daring stories of art, romance, marriage, nature, business, and Eastern European upheaval—all in the fight for her own sanity.

Employing a unique, beautifully textured combination of papier-mâché stop-motion and classic hand-drawn animation (with inspiration from Jan Svankmajer and Bill Plympton), Baumane has produced a poignant and often hilarious tale of mystery, mental health, redemption and survival. 

“CRITIC'S PICK! A sharp, surprising and funny animated feature, plumbing the depths of depression via her family history. Guided by Ms. Baumane’s almost musically accented voice-over, this hand-drawn debut feature is based upon the mental struggles of her Latvian grandmother and other relatives. It’s told with remorseless psychological intelligence, wicked irony and an acerbic sense of humor.” - Nicolas Rapold, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Sardonically hilarious, sneakily moving... The animation comes from a scary, diabolically funny place. Imagine Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, but much darker.” - Peter Keough, BOSTON GLOBE

“Boasting a narrative of extraordinary complexity and density, stuffed with irony, humor and tales-within-tales... imaginative... fascinating and very personal... this modern milestone in animated storytelling... Unfolding at an almost breathless pace, the film boasts aces tech contributions across the board.” - Alissa Simon, VARIETY

“Latvian-born artist and filmmaker Signe Baumane examines her family members' history with mental illness (as well as her own struggles) with HUMOR, DELICACY and EYE-CATCHING animation techniques.” - Whitney Matheson, USA TODAY

“A Latvian family’s history of depression and suicide attempts is vividly brought to life in animated form... the film explores with wit, surreal invention and insight something left far too often undiscussed... Very witty.” - Boyd van Hoeij, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
