The Enchanted Tale of The Last Unicorn!

Upon hearing that she may be the very last of her kind on Earth, a Unicorn (Mia Farrow) goes in search of others like her. Her quest won’t be easy, as it leads her straight to the evil King Haggard (Christopher Lee) and his infamous Red Bull! And the journey is made even more complicated when, to protect her from the envious wrath of Haggard, a spell is cast to turn the Unicorn into the Lady Amalthea, a beautiful, young human woman. But with this new body comes new thoughts and feelings, such as love for Haggard’s son, Prince Lir (Jeff Bridges). Will Amalthea get lost inside this new body? Will she meet the fate of the other Unicorns? Or will she be able to defeat Haggard and his Red Bull with the aid of her friends, Schmendrick the bumbling magician (Alan Arkin) and Molly Grue (Tammy Grimes)? 

From Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass (The Hobbit), comes a magical adventure with an all-star cast, including Mia Farrow, Jeff Bridges, Christopher Lee, Alan Arkin, Tammy Grimes, Angela Lansbury, Rene Auberjonois and Robert Klein, and unforgettable songs from the rock band, America! The original, uncut version!

Dir. Jason Lei Howden - 2020 - 95m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 general / $6 students

Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Samara Weaving, Ned Dennehy and Rhys Darby 

A young man’s mundane existence is turned upside-down when he finds himself enrolled on a dark net website that forces complete strangers to fight in a city-wide game of death with their gladiatorial battles live-streamed worldwide to a fanatical audience. After being pitted against a seemingly unstoppable killing machine, he at first manages to avoid conflict but when his ex-girlfriend is kidnapped he must overcome his fears and stop running.

"Evidence of filmmakers who not only know how to make good movies; they also wear all of their insane, colorful, and playfully nasty influences right on their sleeves - and in this case that's just a whole lot of fun to watch." - Scott Weinberg, Crooked Marquee

"This film is a clear and tangible example that allows us to explain what some of us mean when we defend the big screen and label the cinema as a collective experience." - Víctor López G., Espinof

"It's like a Saturday morning cartoon for the criminally insane, and I mean that with love." - Matt Donato, Atom Insider

"To put simply, "Guns Akimbo" is a hot mess, but in the best neon-drenched and rock 'n roll way." - Kate Sánchez, But Why Tho? A Geek Community

"I loved the frenetic, intense energy Guns Akimbo overflows with." - Scott Wampler, Birth.Movies.Death.

"A spectacularly fun and exciting time whenever the needle drops and Weaving owns her badass, gun-wielding image." - Robert Daniels, RogerEbert.com

"It is the spiritual sequel to The Truman Show that we deserve. Our culture now craves a fanboy loser who somehow becomes a character in a John Woo movie." - Alan Zilberman, Brightest Young Things

Sutter Cane (Jürgen Prochnow, Dune, The Seventh Sign) is the best-selling author whose newest novel is literally driving readers insane. When he inexplicably vanishes, his publisher (Charlton Heston, Soylent Green, Planet Of The Apes) sends special investigator John Trent (Sam Neill, Jurassic Park, Dead Calm) to track him down. Drawn to a town that exists only in Cane’s books, Trent crosses the barrier between fact and fiction and enters a terrifying world from which there is no escape. 

Inspired by the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, this shocking story is, in the words of its acclaimed director, "horror beyond description!"

"This is terror at its most delicious." - Almar Haflidason, BBC.com

"A thinking person's horror picture that dares to be as cerebral as it is visceral." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"This is one of the best Lovecraft adaptations committed to film and it's not even based on any of his works!" - Michelle Kisner, The Movie Sleuth

"The most simplified stories are often the best ones...it's not just an entertaining Twilight Zone-esque film, you can real" - Chris Stuckmann, ChrisStuckmann.com

In the Mouth of Madness is another marvelous work of art by John Carpenter, albeit a lesser known work." - Molly Henery, The Blogging Banshee

"[The] movie has a lot to say about the dangers of cultural obsession and what happens when you give yourself over to the creators you idolize." -  Sean Fennessey, The Ringer
