Dir. John Wellington Ennis - 2014 - 86m - FREE but seating is limited so get here early!

A Common Cause New Mexico Special!

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury -- through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation.  Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy’s High Stakes is the layman’s guidebook to taking back our democracy.

Featuring Robert Reich (Former Secretary of Labor, UC Berkeley Professor), John Nichols (Journalist, Author - Dollarocracy), Mary Bottari (Center For Media and Democracy), Lawrence Lessig (Harvard Professor, Director of Center of Ethics, ROOT$TRIKERS, Author), Noam Chomsky (MIT Professor, Author, Linguist), Marianne Williamson (NY Times Bestselling Author, Speaker), Mark Crispin Miller (NYU Professor, Author) and many more!

“A masterpiece…The talking points in this film are bladed lasers.” — OpEd News Review

“PAY 2 PLAY lays out a compelling case against corporate personhood and money as free speech…Researched, sourced and interviewed exhaustively." — LA Times

“Ennis is an optimist at heart, and his belief that one person can make a difference is infectious…The difference with this movie is that it actually means to inspire hope.”— Washington Post

“He tells his story with humor and the film is an empowering call to action”  — Cinema Assassin

“Full of energy and intelligence and a heartfelt and necessary message…We can only laugh -- and hope. PAY 2 PLAY is actually a very heartening movie.” — TrustMovies

“A stirring plea to level the playing field in our political system.” — UTNE

“A must-watch film!” — DAILY KOS

“A must-watch…a vital film for our democracy.” — Mudflats

“Follows politicians, lobbyists and activists, taking you through a roller coaster of controversy.”  —  ABC7 Eyewitness News, LA 

“Tightly sewn in its approach and intent as a primer for understanding … PAY 2 PLAY argues that everyone, regardless of political position, should have an equal say in who represents him or her in the government…a compelling reason to reexamine the way our political world works.”  — Brightest Young Things

“Makes a very persuasive argument…Ennis wisely incorporates some humor to balance the heavy, frightening insights. One of the most important facts that he sheds light on is one that hasn't been exposed in a documentary before…Much more illuminating and thorough than Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story.” — NYC Movie Guru

“Surprisingly optimistic…Tells a very clear and easily understandable tale…Delightful…A joyous, hopeful and inspirational statement…The harder and much more important job is to tell a complex tale in a straight-forward, compelling and easy to understand way.  Which PAY 2 PLAY does beautifully.” — Firedoglake

Dir. Elia Kazan - 1957 - 125m - No Matinees

BONUS!  Ron Briley, local film historian who taught film history at Sandia Prep School and author of The Ambivalent Legacy of Elia Kazan:  The Politics of the Post-HUAC Films (Rowman and Littlefield, 2017), will provide a short introduction to the screening of A Face in the Crowd.  Briley's brief comments will focus upon the historical context and politics of Kazan's 1957 classic film.

In this ever so timely drama (ahem), Andy Griffith makes a spectacular film debut as Lonesome Rhodes, a philosophical country-western singer discovered in a tanktown jail by television talent coordinator Patricia Neal and her assistant Walter Matthau. They decide that Rhodes is worthy of a TV guest spot and he becomes an overnight sensation.

“Andy Griffith, as a hick radio star modeled on Arthur Godfrey, delivers an astonishing, sinister performance in Elia Kazan's 1957 essay on media demagoguery.” - Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“This sizzling and cynical exposure... also presents Andy Griffith as the key figure in his first screen role.” - Bosley Crowther, New York Times

“Another fruitful collaboartion between Kazan and Budd Schulberg (On the Waterfront), a poignant film about celebrity, the mass media, and the political process.” - Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com

All The President's Men - double featured with A FACE IN THE CROWD

Oct 10 to Oct 12
Tuesday to Thursday 2:30, 8pm

Dir. Alan J. Pakula - 1976 - 138m - No Matinees

“This superb film has long been acknowledged as a classic political thriller, but watching it in today's climate, at a point when a timid and ineffectual media is par for the course, also reveals its increasingly significant value as a time capsule piece.” - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing

“A timely political drama for the Trump reign.” - Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

In the Watergate Building, lights go on and four burglars are caught in the act. That night triggered revelations that drive a U.S. President from office. Washington reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) grabbed the story and stayed with it through doubts, denials and discouragement. All the President’s Men is their story. Directed by Alan J. Pakula and based on the Woodward/Bernstein book, the film won four 1976 Academy Awards (Best Supporting Actor/Jason Robards, Adaptation Screenplay/William Goldman, Art Direction and Sound). It also explores a working newspaper, where the mission is to get the story – and get it right.

“A quintessential American movie: It does a lot of things well and makes it all look simple. It works on several levels.” - Joseph Gelmis, Newsday

Harold & Maude - as part of the BEFORE I DIE ABQ fest!

Oct 21 to Oct 22
Saturday and Sunday 12 Noon only!

Dir. Hal Ashby - 1971 - 91m

“One of those films you just don't want to end.” - Greg Muskewitz, eFilmCritic.com

With the idiosyncratic American fable Harold and Maude, countercultural director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. Working from a script by Colin Higgins, Ashby tells the story of the emotional and romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man (Bud Cort) from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian (Ruth Gordon). Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with the ones that separate people by class, gender, and age, and it features indelible performances and a remarkable soundtrack by Cat Stevens.

“Cuts through the superficial surfaces of conventional romance and digs into what actually draws people together.” - James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk

The Seventh Seal - as part of BEFORE I DIE ABQ fest!

Oct 21 to Oct 22
Saturday and Sunday 2pm ONLY!

Dir. Ingmar Bergman - 1957 - 96m - No Matinees - Sweden - in Swedish with English subtitles

DOUBLE FEATURED WITH HAROLD AND MAUDE!

Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.

“Not only highly impressive but thought-provoking, relevant and intensely moving in our present, nervous, times.” - Wally Hammond, Time Out

“Film has superior technical narrative, impressive lensing and thesping.” - Variety

“90 minutes of iconic imagery, some deep questions and a surprising amount of humor. This is Art with a capital A, but that doesn't mean it's not entertaining at the same time, which only makes its artistry even greater.” - Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs

Liberation Day - a doc on Laibach in North Korea?!!

Oct 24 to Oct 25
Tuesday and Wednesday 3pm, 9pm

Dir. U?is Olte & Morten Traavik - 2017 - 98m - Latvia, Norway & Slovenia - in English

ALL ART IS PROPAGANDA. George Orwell ...AND ALL PROPAGANDA IS ART. Laibach

The most bizarre true tale of North Korea yet – which is saying a lot: Slovenian industrial/art rock band Laibach is invited to be the first rock group to perform in the fortress state. The occasion for this jaw-dropping gig is the 70th anniversary of “Liberation Day,” marking the end of Japanese rule of Korea.

Norwegian impresario Morten Traavik successfully proposed the band, whose militaristic, vaguely fascistic personae seems to suit (or satirize?) the host country. What follows is a flurry of cultural clashes and censorship demands before the group performs in front of an audience who has never seen a live rock act. A concert film like no other.

"Extraordinary.... the strangest North Korean Tale Yet" - The Guardian UK

"Funny, thoughtful & knowingly absurd" - Variety

“North Korea seems like a terrifying place to visit, but if it is really true that that guy [Laibach’s lead singer] is going to be singing The Sound of Music, I kind of want to go there!” – John Oliver, Last Week Tonight.

TELOS: The Fantastic World of Eugene Tssui

Oct 26
Thursday 7pm ONLY!

Dir. Kyung Lee - 2014 - 58m

NOTE:  The AIA movie nights are free with a ticket!  Tickets are distributed at our box office on a "First come, First served" basis beginning at 5:00.  Doors open around 6:30pm and the movie will start at 7:00 pm with introductions!

Rejected by the status quo and embattled to defend his futuristic, yet naturalistic visions, an anti-establishment architect finds unexpected allies in the small town where he hopes to build his architectural fantasia.

“TELOS” chronicles the unorthodox life and revolutionary work of Eugene Tssui, an eccentric visionary and a maverick architect. He questions traditional building standards and put nature and the environment at the forefront of his designs long before “green” and “eco-friendly” became buzzwords.

The film composes a portrait of Tssui as a “Renaissance man”: an athlete, designer, and singular visual artist, as well as architect. The role of creativity in socially and environmentally-minded design is championed by documenting the range of influences from his childhood to his formal education, including three expulsions from architecture school, his relationship with his mentor the “organic” architect Bruce Goff, and the “Not-In-My-Backyard” controversy surrounding the unconventional dwelling built for his parents in Berkeley, California.

While his sustainable building principles have become a trend and a necessity, his aesthetics have yet to receive mainstream approval. Rejected by the status quo and embattled to defend his futuristic, yet naturalistic visions, Tssui finds unexpected allies in the small mountain town where he hopes to build his architectural fantasia.

Kedi - Nine Lives: Cats in Istanbul!

Oct 28
Saturday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Ceyda Torun - 2016 - 80m - US/Turkey - In Turkish with English subtitles - No Matinees

A BOOFY'S BEST FOR PETS SPECIAL!

KEDi is not a documentary about house cats or the strays you occasionally see in your back yard. KEDi is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.

“Splendidly graceful and quietly magical … Trust me: “Kedi” will make you a believer.” - Joe Leydon, Variety

“More than just another example of cute kittens on camera, Kedi bubbles over with charm and insight that millions of YouTube videos can't match.” - Sarah Ward, Screen International

“Yes, Kedi is an unashamed love letter to the compelling creatures at its centre, but, peppered with wisdom and warmth, it's also more than just the ultimate cat video. - Sarah Ward, ArtsHub

Sunday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Ed George and Bryan Reinhart - 2017 - 56m - Suggested Donation of $5

To be followed by a brief panel discussion. Guest speakers include John Davis (Wildlands Network), Dave Foreman (The Rewilding Institute), and Judy Calman (New Mexico Wilderness Alliance), moderated by Jan-Willem Jansens (Ecotone Landscape Planning)!

A Wildlands Network presentation!  Sponsored by New Mexico Wildways!

Hosted and co-sponsored by Albuquerque Wildlife Federation, BirdsEye View GIS, Defenders of Wildlife, Ecotone Landscape Planning, New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, Pathways/Wildlife Corridors of New Mexico, The Rewilding Institute, and Santa Fe Conservation Trust

Follow John Davis as he treks 5000 miles in 8 months from Mexico to Canada to bring awareness to the importance of connected wildlife corridors in the Western Wildway, along the spine of the continent. If we connect our best wild places, we will give wildlife enough room to survive and do what comes naturally -- keeping our landscapes and communities healthy. Taking the route of grizzlies, wolves, cougars and jaguars, John experienced their greatest challenges in getting where they need to go. This alone, however, would accomplish little. He went the extra mile, meeting conservation heroes and learning about amazing projects that are key to connecting western wild places.  

"The film is beautifully conceived ~ an intimate and personalized narrative framed by spectacular photography of the diverse landscape and vistas from Sahuaripa in Sonora, Mexico through the Sierra Madre, past the Colorado Plateau and Glacier National Park and beyond the U.S./Canadian border to British Columbia. This is National Geographic on steroids ~ but with a heart and soul."
