The Unfathomable Jesus Freakout!

1984

1984

On April 4, 2017, FilmBar and almost 90 other art house movie theaters across the country in 79 cities and in 34 states, plus one location in Canada, will be participating collectively in a national event day screening of the movie 1984. This screening is presented with support from the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona.

Orwell’s novel begins with the sentence, ‘It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.’ Less than one month into the new presidential administration, theater owners collectively believe the clock is already striking thirteen. Orwell’s portrait of a government that manufactures their own facts, demands total obedience, and demonizes foreign enemies, has never been timelier. The endeavor encourages theaters to take a stand for our most basic values: freedom of speech, respect for our fellow human beings, and the simple truth that there are no such things as ‘alternative facts.’ By doing what they do best – showing a movie – the goal is that cinemas can initiate a much-needed community conversation at a time when the existence of facts, and basic human rights are under attack. Through nationwide participation and strength in numbers, these screenings are intended to galvanize people at the crossroads of cinema and community, and bring us together to foster communication and resistance against current efforts to undermine the most basic tenets of our society.

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona. For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. For nearly 60 years, the ACLU of Arizona has fought to prevent Arizona’s state and local governments from infringing upon our most cherished constitutional rights including freedom of speech and assembly, equal protection of the law, and the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures.

“There are…sequences…that immediately evoke some of the best work ever done by this great motion-picture stylist.” – The New York Times

Dissatisfied with the Hollywood system, Josef von Sternberg left it behind to make what would be his final film: ANATAHAN (1953). Inspired by an actual event during WWII, Josef von Sternberg's Anatahan, tells the story of a dozen Japanese sailors who are stranded on the remote island of Anatahan during the waning days of the war. The war ends, unbeknownst to the men, and they engage in their own private war for dominance of their island domain and possession of the sole woman in their midst, Keiko (Akemi Negishi), the so-called "Queen Bee" of Anatahan.

Don't miss this gorgeous restoration of the director's cut, made from the original camera negative.

CINEMANIA presents Fantastic Planet

CINEMANIA presents Fantastic Planet

CINEMANIA a new monthly film series highlighting your favorite genre films on the big screen, hosted by Dan Stone (The Unfathomable Film Freakout).

Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux’s animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags’ oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shambala

Frankenstein! Beyond green skin and neck bolts, what else comes to mind? Environmental degradation? The technological singularity? Vicious high school cliques? Over the coming year, from January 2017 to January 2018, FilmBar and Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination will host monthly film screenings of “Unexpected Frankensteins”: movies that capture the themes of Mary Shelley’s literary masterpiece, without relying on the pop-culture depictions of a mad scientist and his Gothic monster. Introduction and Q&A by a local scholar followed by the film screening.

On their promised day, the world moves... it is 1923 in Munich. Two years have passed since Edward Elric's sacrifice ripped him out of his world and into ours, separating him from his younger brother, Alphonse. In that time, Ed's continued research into rocketry has allied him with Alphons Heiderich, a fellow researcher who oddly resembles Ed's brother. Progress has been slow, however, and Ed has become discouraged. But when he saves a quiet Gypsy girl with the power to read minds, Ed is quickly pulled into a plot by the Thule Society and the burgeoning Nazi Party that could drag both worlds into a terrible war. Back in his own world, Al has been unlocking new secrets of alchemy and gaining incredible powers, all in the hopes of finding Ed. Battling the occult, ideological extremists, and monstrous Homunculi lurking in the shadows, can the brothers find a way to reunite without causing chaos and bloodshed? What will happen when the world of alchemy and the world of modern science collide?

Presented with support from Saboten Con. Presented in English (dubbed).

Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they've wandered in and out of people's lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame - and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

NYFCS Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock

NYFCS Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock

SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRTUAL MANTRA OF ROCK Is a deep look into the mind of one of rock’s greatest living photographers: Mick Rock. Rock’s work with some of the most accomplished personalities of the past forty years—David Bowie, Queen, Blondie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop—created many of the images that would come to define them. Presented in his own words, Rock takes us through his journey from the glam rock shimmer of London, through the snarl of NYC punk and into the new millennium, combining a portrait of the man who did the work, with a look at what the work did to the man.

With on screen Q&A hosted by Penelope Spheeris with Mick Rock, Dave Stewart & Surprise Celebrity Guests and Rock Stars!

Rammstein: Paris

Rammstein: Paris

Rammstein has long been in an über-league of its own when it comes to taking the live presentation of rock music to new heights, both in terms of conception and execution. Catching this excitement on film is an almost impossible task.

In this state-of-the-art concert film, renowned Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund takes a radical new approach to capturing the emotion and thrill of Rammstein’s one-of-a-kind live performance. RAMMSTEIN: PARIS is a fast-paced feast for all senses: a dark and spectacular fairy-tale laced with controversy, don’t-try-this-at-home theatrics, plus the all-consuming aroma of Benzin.

Rowing longboats up fjords. Building large and important monuments. Opening major ceremonial occasions... then closing them – with a bang. Rammstein’s music is the perfect soundtrack for all or any of these.

Presented with support from Zia Records!

Dripping with fishnets and leather, the late-night B-movie spoof The Rocky Horror Picture Show inducts attendees into a beloved, rowdy tradition. As archetypal pair of squares Brad and Janet approach the castle of the fabulous Dr. Frank-N-Furter and meet his minions—including decrepit butler Riff Raff; patched-together golden boy Rocky; and, played by Meat Loaf, rock-and-roller Eddie—a shadow cast of actors clothed in lingerie gyrates in front of the screen. In the audience, a decades-long tradition of crowd participation carries on as guests are encouraged to participate in a group “Time Warp” dance, shine flashlights during the song “Over at the Frankenstein Place,” and pop balloons if their dates fall asleep.

The Rocky aficionados of Frankie’s Fishnets, Arizona’s Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow cast, bring extra flair to the evening, with costume contests and prop kits to heighten the experience. Those who arrive scantily clad for the costume contest are encouraged to bring extra demure clothing to cover up, in case they run into their grandparents or a temperance league in the lobby.
