Guillermo del Toro's PINOCCHIO !

Dec 2 to Dec 8
Friday thru Thursday 3:45, 8pm

Dir. Guillermo del Toro - 2022 - 116m

Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro (THE SHAPE OF WATER, PAN'S LABYRINTH) and award-winning, stop-motion legend Mark Gustafson reimagine the classic Carlo Collodi tale of the fabled wooden boy with a whimsical tour de force that finds Pinocchio on an enchanted adventure that transcends worlds and reveals the life-giving power of love!

"You’ve never seen a Pinocchio like this one, a funny, touching and vital masterpiece from del Toro that uses stop-motion animation to create a world of beauty and terror to get lost in. The Oscar for best animated feature belongs right here." - Peter Travers, ABC News

"Del Toro saddles up with stop-motion animation legend Mark Gustafson to present some of the year’s most stunning visuals but also goes a step further by adding some weighty thoughts on war, death, and family to the beloved Carlo Collodi fairy tale." - Jonah Nink, Chicago Reader

"This retelling of Carlo Collodi’s novel about a wooden puppet who comes to life and dreams of becoming a real boy looks outstanding. The movie’s animation artistry is superb. It’s one of my favorite movies of the year." - Michael Calleri, Niagara Gazette

"With the brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro behind it, anything that is classic can be made anew, and this Pinocchio is a gorgeous masterpiece." - Leo Brady, AMovieGuy.com

"...a remarkable achievement, but then again this movie is jampacked full of them...one of the year's very best films..." - Tom Santilli, Movie Show Plus

"del Toro, del Toro, del Toro, this is what I’ve been missing, a take on a classic that refuels it with wonder. This Pinocchio invites us to explore the meaning of and our love for this property with excitement for the first time or all over again." - Sherin Nicole, Geek Girl Riot

Guy Maddin's brilliant TALES FROM THE GIMLI HOSPITAL (REDUX!)

Dec 2 to Dec 8
Friday thru Thursday 6:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Guy Maddin's - 1988 - 66m - No Matinees

A brand new 4K remastering of Tales From The Gimli Hospital Redux by Guy Maddin!!

The Winnipeg lovably bizarro film wizard's highly acclaimed first feature, released in 1988, is now regarded as one of the true cult hits on the midnight movie circuit.

Set during a smallpox epidemic in the village of Gimli, Manitoba near the turn of the century, Tales From The Gimli Hospital Redux is a dreamlike, elliptical film which explores the jealousy and madness instilled in two men who share a hospital room “in a Gimli we no longer know.”

"[One] Maddin's most successful experiments in untuned cinema." - Noel Murray, AV Club

"Guy Maddin's groundbreaking debut feature Tales from the Gimli Hospital restored in glorious 4K, .. gorgeously crisp, the sound perfection, with a long-lost scene of the 1988 cult classic about blistering lust and seething envy on Lake Winnipeg." - Anne Brodie, What She Said

"Whatever else you might say about this weird, creepy, and funny independent item by Guy Maddin, it's certainly different." - Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

ROBOCOP - Special 35th Anniversary Screening!

Dec 2
Friday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Paul Verhoeven - 1987 - 104m - ALL SEATS $8

SPECIAL THANKS TO BUBONICON 54, THEY'll BE PROVIDING DOOR PRIZES!

Called by Ken Russell "the greatest science-fiction film since Metropolis," controversial director Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop is a special effects-laden cult phenomenon. The film features a resurrected and roboticized hero (Peter Weller) in a new, supercharged cyborg body, struggling to reclaim his memory and avenge his own death. Writtern by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner, this film is a grown-up superhero fantasy come to vivid, bloody life!

"35 years after its initial release, RoboCop remains as biting a political satire as ever ..." - Douglas Davidson, Elements of Madness

"Verhoeven's view of America caricatures extreme evolutions in capitalism, media influence, desensitization to violence, gentrification, and our perception of heroes, each in service of a greater conversation about identity and culture." - Brian Eggert, Deep Focus Review

"Not only one of the most thoroughly entertaining quotable action movies of its era but a powerful satire of Reagan-era social policies." - Toussaint Egan, Polygon

"Peter Weller’s work as slain police officer Alex Murphy, and then as unstoppable law enforcement titan RoboCop, is a thing of peerless beauty." - Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

ART & KRIMES BY KRIMES

Dec 9 to Dec 12
Friday thru Monday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Alysa Nahmias - 2022 - 85m - NO MATINEES

While locked up for six years in federal prison, artist Jesse Krimes secretly creates monumental works of art—including an astonishing 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. He smuggles out each panel piece-by-piece with the help of fellow artists, only seeing the mural in totality upon coming home. As Jesse’s work captures the art world’s attention, he struggles to adjust to life outside, living with the threat that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.

"It is rare to find a film that reflects its subject so insightfully, in both an artistic and thematic sense." - The Wrap

"An inspiring and infuriating documentary. Inspiring because, once again, we are reminded of the redeeming and life-affirming qualities inherent in creating art, and infuriating as a man falls into the prison industrial complex and the dehumanization that inevitably takes place there." - Film Forward

"Exploring artistic inspiration and resourcefulness under difficult circumstances, this documentary about redemption and reintegration is earnest yet inspiring." - Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue

Jerzy Skolimowski's Cannes Film Festival favorite EO

Dec 9 to Dec 12
Friday thru Monday 4pm, 8:15

Dir. Jerzy Skolimowski - 2022 - 89m - Poland/Italy - In Polish, Italian, English, French w/ English subtitles

With his first film in seven years, legendary director Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End, Moonlighting) directs one of his most free and visually inventive films yet, following the travels of a nomadic gray donkey named EO. After being removed from the traveling circus, which is the only life he’s ever known, EO begins a trek across the Polish and Italian countryside, experiencing cruelty and kindness in equal measure, all the while observing the follies and triumphs of humankind. During his travels, EO is both helped and hindered by a cast of characters including a young Italian priest (Lorenzo Zurzolo), a Countess (Isabelle Huppert), and a rowdy Polish soccer team. Loosely inspired by Robert Bresson’s Au hasard Balthazar, and featuring immersive, stunning cinematography by Michal Dymek coupled with Pawel Mykietyn’s resonant score, Skolimowski’s film puts the viewer in the perspective of its four-legged protagonist. EO’s journey speaks to the world around us, an equine hero boldly pointing out societal ills, and serving as warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while on a quest for freedom.

"It’s funny. The comedy of EO is in its randomness. But so is the tragedy. Moments that play like punchlines do the double duty of making us both laugh and wince." - K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone

"Like most good art, EO is better felt then interpreted or completely understood." - Oliver Jones, Observer

"A thrillingly imaginative piece of filmmaking: a strange, haunting epic about a donkey that couldn't feel more of our moment." - John Powers, NPR

"May be one of the greatest movies ever made about the spirit of animals, as much as we can know it." - Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

"For the most part, you feel as if you're in sure hands and can see what the storytellers are trying to do." - Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com

"Viewers can make connections or interpret people, or actions, or emotions as desired. EO is not going to judge, but he is going to tell you what to think or feel, which is perhaps the beauty and brilliance of this uncommon film." - Gary M. Kramer, Salon.com

"Jerzy Skolimowski's homage to Bresson’s Au hasard Balthazar is its own strange melancholic creature, a hallucinogenic projection of donkey consciousness, rendered through luminous cinematography." - Liam Lacey, Original Cin

"As an environmental statement, it’s hardly breaking any new ground, but the film provides a creative and unusually absorbing simulation of the non-human experience." - Tanner Gordon. Spectrum Culture

"The film anthropomorphizes EO as a pure innocent so we can see things from his POV." - Dennis Schwartz, Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews

"A mesmerizing, exhilarating and poignant journey." - Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

BONUS:  A SHORT SCREENING OF THE NMSU GILA FILM SCHOOL STUDENT'S TRAILER OF THEIR UPCOMING FILMS PLUS A SPECIAL POST-SCREENING OF NO FOOL'S GOLD PANEL DISCUSSION!

Deep in the heart of the Gila National Forest, on the edge of the country’s first Wilderness, a handful of residents carve out a remote, peaceful life amongst the relics of an abandoned gold mining town. When a Canadian mining company surreptitiously starts exploratory drilling in their backyard, it threatens not only the town’s roads, watersheds, and livelihood, but also the surrounding national forest, and the local population of Mexican spotted owls. With dogged persistence and a willingness to put everything on the line to save their beloved home, the local community mounts an opposition campaign to stop extractive appetites and destructive industry from forever altering the town of Mogollon and its surrounding landscapes. Mogollon’s incomparable cast of characters who share an unwavering love of place serve as an important reminder of why we must protect our public lands, now more than ever.

Dir. Paul Verhoeven - 1997 - 129m - ALL SEATS $8

                                SPECIAL THANKS TO BUBONICON 54, THEY'll BE PROVIDING DOOR PRIZES!

From the bridge of the Fleet Battlestation Ticonderoga, with its sweeping galactic views, to the desolate terrain of planet Klendathu, teeming with shrieking, fire-spitting, brain-sucking special effects creatures, acclaimed director PAUL VERHOEVEN crafts a dazzling (and quite hilariously subversive!) epic based on Robert A. Heinlein's classic sci-fi adventure. CASPER VAN DIEN, DINA MEYER, DENISE RICHARDS, JAKE BUSEY, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, PATRICK MULDOON, and MICHAEL IRONSIDE star as the courageous soldiers who travel to the distant and desolate Klendathu system for the ultimate showdown between the species.

"Verhoeven is absolutely cutthroat in this satire about war, propaganda and fascism. The fact that audiences and critics may have missed the intention of this fun, hilarious and gory war film is wild. 25 years later it still holds up." - Joe Lipsett, Horror Queers Podcast

"The sci-fi film’s cautionary tale about reckless militarism and the dangers of fascism feels even more relevant today than it did when the movie was released 25 years ago..." - Miles Surrey, The Ringer

"It aims low and hits, again and again, with hammering relentlessness and a steady stream of rude satire." - Rob Gonsalves, Rob's Movie Vault

"Here the bestial brutality of US imperialism is shown from the inside." Anton Bitel, BFI

"Often grotesque and sometimes pretty cheesy too, it's now embraced by many film fans as sly satire skewering America's weakness for right-wing militarism." - Nick Levine, NME

Dir. Ti West - 2022 - 102m

Starring Mia Goth, David Corenswet, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland. Emma Jenkins-Purro!

Filmmaker Ti West returns with another chapter from the twisted world of X, in this astonishing follow-up to the year’s most acclaimed horror film. Trapped on her family’s isolated farm, Pearl must tend to her ailing father under the bitter and overbearing watch of her devout mother. Lusting for a glamorous life like she’s seen in the movies, Pearl finds her ambitions, temptations, and repressions all colliding in this stunning, technicolor-inspired origin story of X’s iconic villain.

"If Douglas Sirk made a slasher flick, it would be Pearl." - Christy Lemire

FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

"Pearl is a gift." - Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

"Goth delivers an electrifying and truly scary performance." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"A compelling and sinister intro to the character established earlier in the year, taken to new heights by Mia Goth’s striking performance." - Kristy Strouse, Wonderfully Weird and Horrifying

"What makes Pearl surprisingly brilliant compared to X, is that in reality it is a profound drama with slasher elements, not the other way around." - Ruben Peralta Rigaud, Cocalecas

"This was pretty great. Like that last shot, it’s going to linger. How could it not?" - Cory Woodroof, 615 Film

"... A bleak yet colourful character study which enriches and gives texture to the world of X." - Joel Harley, Starburst

"Mia Goth shines in 'Pearl', Ti West's companion piece to this year's 'X', delivering one of the most memorable horror performances of the year." - Trace Thurman, Horror Queers Podcast

LEONOR WILL NEVER DIE

Dec 16 to Dec 22
Friday the Thursday 5:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Martika Ramirez Escobar - 2022 - 99m - The Philippines - In Filipino with English subtitles - NO MATINEES

Leonor Reyes was once a groundbreaking figure in the Filipino film industry during its ragtag action cinema glory days, but now she struggles with old age, mounting bills, and the untimely death of her son. While revisiting an unfinished script about a fearless protagonist trying to avenge his brother’s murder, Leonor is struck on the head by a falling television set and knocked into a coma. As she lays unconscious in the hospital, fantasy and reality begin to blur when Leonor finds herself awake inside her script, becoming the hero of her own story. An innovative blend of pulpy action homages, playful comedy, and touching family drama, Leonor Will Never Die is a wonderfully imaginative tribute to the art of filmmaking.

“Wonderfully unclassifiable! Martika Ramirez Escobar’s heartfelt, zany tribute to the magic of movies and the power of love. The combination of family melodrama, pulpy violence and surreal comedy add up to the disarmingly tender portrait of an artist on the edge of the afterlife.” - A. O. Scott, New York Times

"A fantastical romp through cinematic styles. It’s gleefully meta and so much fun, from a fresh new voice who we can thank for the first action-star lola (grandmother)." - Lisa Wong Macabasco, Vogue

“A beautiful, life-affirming celebration of the power of film and art” - Charles Barfield, The Playlist

“A delightful surprise; it's inventive and original, with flourishes of magical realism.” - Shirley Li, The Atlantic

“A meta-fantasy with its swooning melodrama and kickass fight sequences. Establishes writer/director Martika Ramirez Escobar as an artist with a singular voice and bright future in halls of weird cinema.”- Marya E. Gates, RogerEbert.com

Friday thru Sunday 7:45pm ONLY / Monday thru Thursday 2:45, 7:45pm

Dir. Noah Baumbach - 2022 - 135m

Starring Greta Gerwig, Don Cheadle & Adam Driver!

At once hilarious and horrifying, lyrical and absurd, ordinary and apocalyptic, White Noise dramatizes a contemporary American family's attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world. Based on the book by Don DeLillo, written for the screen and directed by Noah Baumbach.

"Rather unexpectedly, Noah Baumbach was the perfect filmmaker to bring DeLillo's White Noise to life." - Richard Propes, TheIndependentCritic.com

"A film that might leave you giggling, scratching your head, or convinced that we’re all doomed, but you’ll be damned near helpless against the strange beauty of synchronized shopping." - Hope Madden, MaddWolf

"Maximalist, funny, abrasive satire that resists interpretation." - Pippa Bailey, New Statesman

A DARK ROOM HORROR SPECIAL!  ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON ONLINE CHECK BACK HERE SHORTLY!  DOOR PRIZES COURTESY OF BUBONICON 54!

A darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday!

When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas.  Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers.  

All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.  

The horror-comedy also stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Stefania Lavie Owen and Krista Stadler.

Krampus and his mischievous underlings have been created by the combined efforts of Weta Workshop and Weta Digital, both renowned for their epic work on The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies and King Kong, among many others.

"It's a pleasantly perverse idea with potential for grisly humor, cultural satire and the kind of murderous fantasies that run through all our heads when relatives overstay their welcome." - Rafer Guzman, Newsday

"A fun little slice of family holiday horror." - Trace Thurman, Horror Queers Podcast

"[A] hybrid of a horror movie... really creative." - Emma Wolfe, SpookyAstronauts

Saturday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. 103m - 2020 - Hannah Jayanti - ALL SEATS $12

FILMMAKERS IN PERSON FOR INTRO PLUS POST-SCREENING DISCUSSION!  GET ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE NOW!

The NM Humanities Council invites the creators of the documentary Truth or Consequences (2020) to New Mexico for a screening tour of the film around New Mexico.

A?bout the film: Truth or Consequences is a speculative documentary about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Set in Truth or Consequences, NM, the film takes place in the shadow of the world's first commercial Spaceport. Subtly set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town. Anchored in observational documentary footage, the film weaves together archival, virtual reality worlds, an improvised score by Bill Frisell, and a speculative premise based on the very real spaceport located just outside of town. These intertwine to create a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and a changing world.

"Haunted and haunting. Jayanti threads the real-life stories of this town’s inhabitants through the impressionistic narrative [...] the tales are given further resonance by the strangeness of the place, and by a reflective electric-guitar score by Bill Frisell." - THE NEW YORK TIMES

“One of the best documentaries that came out in 2020” - THE BOSTON GLOBE

“A truly remarkable film about human fragility, imagination and time” - Cíntia Gil, SHEFFIELD

“The characters she has us living with are always front and center, and on display is her humanistic gift of putting people at ease and earning buried life stories and emotions. Truth or Consequences is the product of a great documentarian letting her heart guide her” - MUBI NOTEBOOK

“A thoughtful, surprisingly moving, and extremely ambitious film, one that employs an innovative style and some unconventional pacing to explore an unusually complex philosophical and emotional landscape.” - THE ARTS FUSE

“Jayanti repeatedly demonstrates a gift for making mundane visual moments feel transcendent [...] Truth or Consequences is admittedly not a film for everyone. But for those willing to surrender themselves to its spell, it will reveal itself to be a beautiful enigma.” - BEYONDCHRON

“The juxtaposition of humanity, place and destiny is the backbone, the storyline, of your film. By honoring the nature of ordinary people and the use of historical reference along with an immense vision of place, you have created an extraordinary pallet of color, time and texture to paint a canvas of the future as now. Bringing me into the process and allowing my world to be a color on your wheel is a privilege. Thank you.”- Olin B. West, FEATURED IN THE FILM

CAT DADDIES

Tuesday thru Friday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Mye Hoang - 2022 - 89m - NO MATINEES

When a man loves a cat, I am his friend and comrade without further introduction.  - Mark Twain

A heartwarming and tender portrait of a diverse group of men whose lives have been forever changed by their love of cats, CAT DADDIES takes us on an inspiring journey all across the United States during the challenging early days of the COVID-19 pandemic when people desperately needed hope and companionship. 

These nine “cat dads” come from all walks of life – a firefighter, a truck driver, a Hollywood stuntman, an ad executive turned cat rescuer, a police officer, a software engineer, an actor/Instagram influencer, a school teacher and an undocumented and disabled immigrant living on the streets of New York City.  

They couldn’t be any more different, but each of them has a compelling story to tell and share an unconditional love for their beloved cats.  A refreshing and timely exploration of modern masculinity, CAT DADDIES shows us how being a “cat person” has no gender, and that the unlikely bond between man and cat is here to stay.

"Irresistibly appealing, insightfully observed,beautifully crafted!" - Joe Leydon, The Moving Picture Show

"A heartwarming charmer, a balm for the soul." - Leslie Combemale, Alliance of Women Film Journalists

"Get ready to fall in love with CAT DADDIES!  A true "Must See" film!" - Debbie Elias, Behind the Lens

From Tim Burton comes an unforgettable fairy tale starring Johnny Depp, Wynona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Vincent Price as the Inventor. Once upon a time in a castle high on a hill lived an inventor whose greatest creation was named Edward. Although Edward had an irresistible charm, he wasn't quite perfect. The inventor's sudden death left him unfinished, with sharp shears of metal for hands. Edward lived alone in the darkness until one day a kind Avon lady took him home to live with her family. And so began Edward's fantastical adventures in a pastel paradise known as Suburbia.

"One-of-a-kind fairytale for adults from director Tim Burton." - Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)

"Burton's modern fairytale has an almost palpably personal feel: it is told gently, subtly and with infinite sympathy for an outsider who charms the locals but then inadvertently arouses their baser instincts." - Marc Lee, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"A delightful and delicate comic fable." - Variety

"Mr. Burton invests awe-inspiring ingenuity into the process of reinventing something very small." - Janet Maslin, New York Times
