A DARK ROOM HORROR SPECIAL!  GET ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE NOW TO ALSO GET AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED FOR GIVEAWAYS FROM DARK ROOM HORROR, SPECTRAL YOUTH AND BUBONICON 54!  SPECIAL THANKS TO RIALTO PICTURES!  

When the fog rolls in ... the terror begins! This moody horror classic from master of terror John Carpenter (The Thing) and producer Debra Hill (Escape From New York) stars Adrienne Barbeau (Swamp Thing), Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween), Tom Atkins (Halloween III: Season Of The Witch), Hal Holbrook (Creepshow) and Janet Leigh (Psycho). Don't get lost in the fog ...

The sleepy seaside village of Antonio Bay is about to learn the true meaning of the word "vengeance." This seemingly perfect town masks a guilty secret ... a past steeped in greed and murder. Exactly 100 years ago, a ship was horribly wrecked under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog. Now, shrouded in darkness, the long-dead mariners have returned from their watery grave to exact a bloody revenge.

"CRISPLY CHILLING!" – Newsweek

"It's one of the director's most atmospheric, the shots of a wave-lashed cove and fog-choked headland making the town's impending reckoning almost poetic." - Phil Hoad, Guardian

"Ghoulish, tense and utterly fantastical, John Carpenter's tale of shipwrecked spectres squelching their way through a fluorescent fog to wreak vengeance on a seaside town is a classic campfire yarn." - Will Lawrence, Empire Magazine

As the car emerged as the primary form of personal transportation in the last century, America’s roads became central to connecting people and places. Among the most famous of these is Route 66, which served as the pathway to the west for many explorers and travelers, and became a memorable and influential part of automotive and American history.
The documentary film Route 66: The Untold Story of Women on the Mother Road investigates this history by looking at how women overcame segregation and gender discrimination to build fulfilling lives for themselves and generations to come on America’s most beloved road.

Funding support provided by the New Mexico Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. This program is sponsored by the New Mexico Route 66 Association.

THE UNSETTLING

Feb 10
Friday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Harry Owens - 2022 - 94m - ALL SEATS $8

Abena and Kwame, a Ghanaian couple, are struggling to recover from a devastating tragedy. They travel to Los Angeles for a vacation that they hope will help them find their way back to one another. Instead, during an awkward dinner with estranged friends, Vivian and Anthony, Abena is increasingly terrorized by an evil possessing the house. The house that was meant to provide refuge slowly stalks her, consuming her sorrow and trapping her in a nightmare. As her terror grows, it ultimately engulfs all four with horrifying consequences.

With a sense of danger that builds on the periphery before coming terrifyingly into focus, The Unsettling is a dread-filled tale of alienation in the seemingly safest of spaces.

NEAR MYTH: THE OSKAR KNIGHT STORY - the award-winning Hollywood comedy biopic - Starring Lenny Von Dohlen

Apr 9
Sunday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Scott Fivelson - 2023 - 95m - NO MATINEES

“That’s just the way it was back then.” - Oskar Knight, Jr.

The slap that Will Smith unceremoniously presented to Chris Rock was nothing compared to how the Oscars treated the Most Nominated Director in History, Oskar Knight, for most of his career. But in the end, did Knight finally take home the gold?  Like with The Exorcist, please don’t tell anyone what happens during the last 10 minutes…!

From writer/director Scott Fivelson comes the new Hollywood comedy biopic, Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story, starring the late, great Lenny Von Dohlen (Twin Peaks, Tender Mercies, Electric Dreams) as legendary director, Oskar Knight. 

Also starring a cavalcade of stars from throughout the decades of Hollywood, including Academy Award Winner Margaret O’Brien, International Emmy Winner David Suchet, Joaquim de Almeida, Julianna Guill, Rudolf Martin, Kristina Anapau, Randall Batinkoff, Lawrence Pressman, Maya Stange, Julian Flynn, Jon Provost (the original “Timmy” from TV’s Lassie), Noel Neill (the original “Lois Lane” from TV’s Superman), and many more. 

The film, which won Fivelson the Breakthrough Director’s Spotlight Award at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival and actor Jay Gillespie Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival, brought composer Ted Reedy the award for Best Song (“Theme from Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story”) at the Garden State Film Festival. With inventive cinematography and editing by David Polcino and a score that also includes  “Walkin’ My Karma” by acclaimed singer-songwriter Junior Burke and “Bright Morning Star” by BBC Radio 2 awarded Irish folk artist Cara Dillon.

Come relive the story of Hollywood in a way it’s never been told before. He probably never should have made Oskar Knight’s Moby Dick, but he did make They Came in Low. 

It’s Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story.

“Delightfully crafted, engagingly funny… Sandwiched somewhere between This Is Spinal Tap and Sunset Boulevard, this unique biopic is the story of one of the greatest Hollywood directors that you’ve never heard of — Oskar Knight.” - The Ryder Magazine and Film Series

“Genuinely funny… Portraying the gigantic legacy left behind by Fivelson’s filmmaking legend Oskar Knight, the picture shows not only a satirical view on near-enough a hundred years of film history, but also in its details and accuracy demonstrates a true love and respect for cinema.” - Filmotomy

“In this highly entertaining biography, deftly and warmly directed by Los Angeles writer/director Scott Fivelson… it all seemed so real that I felt transported back to that era. That’s how engaging this film is… Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story is one of the best films I have seen in years and it is truly not to be missed.” - The Metropolis Planet

“Beyond everything else, Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story is a love letter to Old Hollywood… Indeed, I think Near Myth: The Oskar Knight Story could be destined to be a classic itself.” - A Shroud of Thoughts

"I thought it was a documentary going into it, and the funny thing is that it’s not a documentary… It was a documentary, but not… Incredibly well-done – it blew me away… You guys have gotta see this… Was very, totally original…  I’ve not seen a film like this.” - Kazzy Creates & Reacts
