Narrated by Weird Al Yankovic, TINY TIM: KING FOR A DAY is a biographical doc about a musician who is not only well known for hits such as Tip Toe Through The Tulips but for his trail blazing personae that paved the way for other rock stars such as David Bowie, Prince, Iggy Pop and Boy George. An outcast from a young age, Herbert Khary’s rise to stardom as Tiny Tim is the ultimate fairytale. Considered a freak by many of his peers, Tiny Tim left no one unaffected. His wedding on the Carson Show was watched by over 45 million Americans and his queer personality have been celebrated by the likes of Bob Dylan, Marilyn Manson and Lady Gaga. There were plans and hopes that Tiny Tim would be a lasting star, not only a novelty act but one man ruined these plans: Tiny Tim.

The exclusive access to Tiny Tim’s intense diaries, the playful and powerful animations and the interviews with his family and friends, makes this film not only a captivating portrait of one of the oddest stars the world has ever seen, but also a psychological drama, examining the borderline between insanity and geniality.

"From the Tiny Tim diary excerpts (read by "Weird Al" Yankovic) to the sometimes startling video of the former star eking out a living in his later years, "King for a Day" is never less than riveting." - Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

"A compelling and very entertaining portrait of a showbiz original" - Roger Moore, Movie Nation

"There was never anything like Tiny Tim - not before or since - and, as the film makes clear, his character was anything but an act." - Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle

"Nicolas Cage locked inside an abandoned arcade with a menagerie of massive murderous monsters? Sign me up." - Scott Weinberg, Thrillist

When his car breaks down, a quiet loner (Nic Cage) agrees to clean an abandoned family fun center in exchange for repairs. He soon finds himself waging war against possessed animatronic mascots while trapped inside Willy’s Wonderland.

"WHas the garish stop-and-go rhythm of an '80s slasher film, and I mean that as a compliment." - Owen Gleiberman, Variety

"It ably fulfills its promise as a bonkers saga about Nicolas Cage battling satanically-possessed fantasy robots in a funhouse restaurant, and really, that's no small accomplishment." - Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

"At this point, Cage's movies don't have to be reviewed, but rather stamped with official certificates of weirdness." - Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

"It's pure Midnight Madness and Cage adds to the movie's unhinged playfulness with a wordless, singular performance that could only have emerged from an Oscar winner intent on letting his freak flag fly." - Richard Crouse

FROM THE MAKERS OF SECRET OF KELLS AND SONG OF THE SEA!

BEST ANIMATION OSCAR NOMINEE - In a time of superstition and magic, a young apprentice hunter, Robyn Goodfellowe, journeys to Ireland with her father to wipe out the last wolf pack. While exploring the forbidden lands outside the city walls, Robyn befriends a free-spirited girl, Mebh, a member of a mysterious tribe rumored to have the ability to transform into wolves by night. As they search for Mebh’s missing mother, Robyn uncovers a secret that draws her further into the enchanted world of the WOLFWALKERS and risks turning into the very thing her father is tasked to destroy.

"Its spell is irresistible." - Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine

"Here is an animated film that finds new beauty in ancient traditions; a film that fights back against the temptation to surrender what little magic this world still has left, and fulfills Cartoon Saloon's promise along the way." - David Ehrlich, indieWire

"It's glorious, gorgeous, and more than a little profound." - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture

"To watch Wolfwalkers is to dive into visual splendor." - Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

"Wolfwalkers does its world-building through emotional voice-work, through lush, hand-drawn animation, and through visual style for days." - Glen Weldon, NPR

"There's an ecological parable going on here, no doubt. Girl power is a running theme as well. But I was most knocked out by "Wolfwalkers' " metaphors for the long, sad colonization." - Bob Strauss, San Francisco 

"As it goes on, Wolfwalkers challenges us to rethink our perspectives and to give the things and people around us a second, and third look." - Andrew Kendall, Stabroek News

Two Cuban-born brothers, both virtuoso musicians – Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán – live on opposite sides of the geopolitical chasm that separates the U.S. and Cuba. But although they lead very different existences, the brothers have an instinctual connection.

Following their parallel lives in New York and Havana, Los Hermanos/ The Brothers offers a heartfelt and eye-opening view of our estranged nations through the lens of music and family. In capturing their reunion and electrifying first performances together, the film shows how family bonds can transcend politics.

"This endearing documentary is an Oscar-caliber film for the family and one not to be missed!" - Jeffrey Lyons, WCBS News Radio

"Six months without live music will be reason enough to see these two gifted musicians reunite across borders to perform publicly for the first time. The film offers a bright take on the endurance of family despite the policies of the day." - WBUR, Boston Public Radio

"A joyful U.S. tour featuring Aldo’s blood-pumping compositions that meld jazz, classical and Latin music." - KQED, San Francisco Public Media

"Exquisite – so much poetry, heart, and exemplary craft.

The editing is just sublime." - Rob Epstein, Two-time Oscar Winner

"Expertly and beautifully paced, like a great piece of music." - Joshua Bell, Celebrated American Violinist

Two Lottery Tickets - available soon on our "virtual cinema" online viewing options!

May 26 to Jun 30

Dir. Paul Negoescu - 2021 - 86m - Romania - In Romanian with English subtitles

ONLINE AT-HOME VIEWING LINK AVAILABLE SOON WITH PART OF THE SCREENING FEE GOING TO HELP US ALONG DURING THE PANDEMIC!

The next generation of Romanian filmmaking talent finally arrives in the U.S. with Paul Negoescu and Two Lottery Tickets. A buddy comedy produced on a shoestring budget, starring three of the most recognizable faces in Romanian movies, Two Lottery Tickets suggests Pineapple Express by way of Abbas Kiarostami. 

A winsome, riotous comedy of errors, Negoescu’s second feature is an audience-friendly social satire which merges a stoner’s shaggy-dog story with the sophisticated, intensely realistic style that has made the Romanian cinema one of the most popular national film movements in the world.

Police, Adjective star Drago? Bucur plays against type as Sile, an irresponsible carpenter who spends most afternoons at the pub, placing small bets, racking up a huge tab, and buying lottery tickets. He convinces his drinking buddy Dinel (Dorian Bogu??), whose wife has just left him for an Italian, to play the lottery one hot afternoon. Borrowing a few Euros from Pompiliu (Alexandru Papadopol), the local conspiracy theorist, Dinel plays the numbers on the off chance that a win would bring back his wife. 

After two petty criminals jack his fanny-pack and the winning ticket, the three guys spend what little money they have tracking down the thieves. Although all three guys are easy marks with zero talent for sleuthing, their wild goose chase around Dinel’s apartment complex precedes a road trip to Bucharest, where the two thugs might be about to cash in on the €6 million jackpot.

Unpretentious, well-acted, and consistently hilarious, Two Lottery Tickets is a breezy reminder of the eternal essentials for good comedy: smart performances, a clever and intuitive style, and an irresistibly, unpredictable yarn.

"Aims to make its audience chortle continuously for 86 minutes and it succeeds mightily." - Slant Magazine

“A scrappy...uproarious Romanian comedy... shot to look like a faded Polaroid photograph that evokes summers long gone.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“A manic tour-de-force, a fun loud comedy.” - Romania Insider

In JOHN DIES AT THE END, it’s all about the Soy Sauce, a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity? No. No, they can't.

Adapted from David Wong’s audacious trans-genre horror novel, JOHN DIES AT THE END is written and directed by Don Coscarelli (BUBBA HO-TEP) and also stars Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Paul Giamatti.

"A PUNK ROCK GHOSTBUSTERS BY WAY OF H.P. LOVECRAFT. Its best moments are exhilarating. The film has enough trippy and original ideas for ten movies.” Nathan Rabin, A.V. Club

“IMMENSELY ENTERTAINING! A thoroughly unpredictable horror-comedy and gonzo gorefest.” – Rob Nelson, Variety

“Filled with crazy, wild imagery that will delight genre fans, it sets a tone that falls somewhere between Ghostbusters and the work of William S. Burroughs. Fun, gross, playful and constantly finding ways to delight and startle.” Drew McWeeny, HITFIX

"Bold and heartless statement on the social media age that is terrifyingly accurate. Andrew Garfield is a force of nature; destructive, powerful, unpredictable, and absolutely hypnotic in between." - Chris Sawin, Hub Pages

"Garfield has settled in nicely to a career, where he isn't afraid to take chances and his performance as Link is everything it should be: Damaged, annoying, noxious and desperate." - Matthew Passantino, Awards Radar

"Conceived as Network for millennials or maybe A Face in The Crowd for the TikTok generation, Mainstream shows more promise from writer/director Gia Coppola." - Dominic Griffin, The Armchair Auteur

Based on the gloabal best-selling book & starring Eric Bana, Genevieve O'Reilly, Keir O'Donnell, John Polson - a federal agent’s homecoming leads to a deeply personal murder investigation that reopens old wounds and threatens to unravel the tight-knit small town.

"Bana's weathered performance and striking work by DoP Stefan Duscio ensure that this is a gripping-enough watch." - Sarah Ward, Screen International

Winner of the Fipresci Prize and the Silver Berlin Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival!

Starring Paula Beer, Franz Rogowski, Maryam Zaree, Jacob Matschenz, Anne Ratte-Polle - Christian Petzold (PHOENIX, TRANSIT) boldly reimagines the ancient myth of Undine in this suspenseful tale of romance and betrayal in modern day Berlin. Undine (Paula Beer) works as a historian lecturing on Berlin’s urban development. But when the man she loves leaves her, the myth catches up with her. Undine has to kill the man who betrays her and return to the water. Will Undine defy fate when she meets a diver (Franz Rogowski) offering her a chance at new love?

"There's just enough magic and mystery to tease out a supernatural reading of the film, though Petzold encourages viewers to find pleasure in puzzling out his femme fatale for themselves." - Simran Hans, Observer (UK)

"An intriguing romance that plays pleasing games with the viewer until the final ambiguous scene." - Tara Brady, Irish Times

"The story's ripples are often heart-stopping, adding unexpected emotions to a narrative that holds us in its grip, refusing to take an expected route." - Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall

"A great romantic European drama (with a twist), centred around two compelling performances." - Fiona Underhill, JumpCut Online

Pride & Equality Magazine is proud to present our 2021 film screening in honor of Pride, Hedwig and The Angry Inch, at The Guild Cinema with live drag performances and giveaways through the evening. THIS IS AN ALL-AGES EVENT!

With this trailblazing musical, writer-director-star John Cameron Mitchell and composer-lyricist Stephen Trask brought their signature creation from stage to screen for a movie as unclassifiable as its protagonist. Raised a boy in East Berlin, Hedwig (Mitchell) undergoes a traumatic personal transformation in order to emigrate to the U.S., where she reinvents herself as an “internationally ignored” but divinely talented rock diva, characterized by Mitchell as inhabiting a “beautiful gender of one.” The film tells Hedwig’s story through her music, an eclectic assortment of original punk anthems and power ballads by Trask, matching them with a freewheeling cinematic mosaic of music-video fantasies, animated interludes, and moments of bracing emotional realism. A hard-charging song cycle and a tender character study, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a tribute to the transcendent power of rock and roll.

PROCEDURES DURING SCREENINGS: To protect our patrons, masks over the mouth & nose are required for our screenings. We will be providing hand sanitizer and limiting the number of seats for the screening. We'll also be reminding patrons to perform basic hygiene practice while attending.

The brilliant work, personal struggles, and cultural impact of iconic American writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams explodes onto the screen in this innovative dual-portrait documentary.

Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland masterfully collages a wealth of archival material, including dishy talk show appearances with Dick Cavett and David Frost, with clips from some of the duo’s most memorable movie adaptions: A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and In Cold Blood. Featuring vibrant voiceover work by award-winning actors Jim Parsons (Capote) and Zachary Quinto (Williams), the film is dripping with wit and wisdom.

It is a celebration of both men's fearless candor and often tumultuous friendship that honors how their identity as gay Southerners informed their timeless artistic achievements and relationships with family, colleagues, confidants, and – most significantly – each other.

“It is a story told in their own words and serves as a reminder of what eloquent, witty, self-aware and sensitive individuals they were” - Allan Hunter, Screen Daily

“Succeeds beautifully in providing a revealing look at their troubled psyches” - Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

“An immersive portrait of literary icons, friends, and rivals… a creative way into the ubiquitous figures.” - Jude Dry, Indiewire

“Takes their great talents as a given and happily refuses to sensationalize their struggles… the film succeeds in bringing these remarkable figures a bit closer to us.” - Todd McCarthy, Deadline 

“A truly captivating and cleverly contrasting examination of two of the most significant writers of the last century.” - Frank J. Avella, Edge Media

“The greatest service… is the attention it grants to the written words of Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams.” - Sarah Boslaugh, The Arts STL

“A visually appealing mosaic of iconic photographs, television interviews, magazine articles, clippings and comments that combine to fully immerse us in the lives and loves of both men.” - Allan Hunter, Screen International

SWEET THING centers around the lives of two children in contemporary New Bedford, Massachusetts in particular one eventful summer spent in a beach house with their mother and her boyfriend. The story is an intense but ultimately uplifting, poetic rendering of childhood that captures the essence of that time in life when a day can last forever. The friendships, loyalties, and challenges of adolescent youth propel the story into a triumph of childhood hope and resilience. 

The central character, Billie, is a 15-year-old girl who fantasizes Billie Holiday as a sort of fairy godmother. Billie has to navigate the evolving challenges of her life while she plays mother to her 11-year-old brother, Nico. They meet up with another adolescent, run away from home, and together roam the area free from their parents’ watchful eye. They discover freedom and enchantment among New Bedford’s boats and railway tracks. They fantasize about a life of luxury when they break into a posh home, and are able to carry the taste of affluence into their adventures. The film celebrates their ability to make poetry and a joyful life out of hardship. The children come to represent a hope in our own resilience, as the film is an ode to that trying age when young people prepare to take their first step into adulthood.

"A lively, bittersweet meditation on an impoverished childhood that is still rich in innocence and imagination.... With verve and vitality it pays a dreamy-eyed retrospective debt to films past, and largely due to the beguiling performance from Rockwell’s own daughter Lana, ultimately delivers a moving, tousled journey of discovery...." - Jessica Kiang, Variety

"Rockwell’s film about specific heartbreaking circumstances is accessibly potent in its portrayal of childhood and memory. He taps into the experience of complex emotions – fear mixed with hope, love entangled with heartbreak, and childhood prematurely ripped away – in ways that exemplify the unique potential of cinema." - Mary-Catherine Harvey, The Upcoming

"Gorgeous... stunningly rendered....this is a film that deserves to be seen." - Stephen Silver , Goomba Stomp
