AGFA'S Cinemapocalypse at FilmBar: Wolf Guy

Shinichi "Sonny" Chiba is a martial arts "manimal" in the ultra-70's, 100% bizarre mixture of horror, action and sci-fi that is Wolf Guy, one of the rarest and most sought-after cult films produced by Japan's Toei Studio. Based on a manga by Kazumasa Hirai (creator of 8 Man), and never before released outside of Japan, it's a genre film classic waiting to be discovered and a completely unclassifiable trip into phantasmagoric funk.

Introduced by Monte Yazzie of the Phoenix Critic’s Circle with support from AGFA – American Genre Film Archive.

The National Pyrotechnic Festival in Tultepec, Mexico is a site of festivity unlike any other in the world. In celebration of San Juan de Dios, patron saint of firework makers, conflagrant revelry engulfs the town for ten days. Artisans show off their technical virtuosity, up­and-comers create their own rowdy, lo­fi combustibles, and dozens of teams build larger-than- life papier-mâché bulls to parade into the town square, adorned with fireworks that blow up in all directions. More than three quarters of Tultepec’s residents work in pyrotechnics, making the festival more than revelry for revelry’s sake. It is a celebration that anchors a way of life built around a generations-old, homegrown business of making fireworks by hand. For the people of Tultepec, the National Pyrotechnic Festival is explosive celebration, unrestrained delight and real peril. Plunging headlong into the fire, BRIMSTONE & GLORY honors the spirit of Tultepec’s community and celebrates celebration itself.

CINEMANIA! A monthly film series highlighting your favorite genre films on the big screen, hosted by Dan Stone (The Unfathomable Film Freakout). Presented with support from Zia Records!

Miracle Mile starts conventionally enough, with bashful musician Anthony Edwards going ga-ga over waitress Mare Winningham. After a pleasant if somewhat quirky day together, Edwards and Winningham plan a tete-a-tete at the all-night restaurant where the girl works. While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a Midwestern missile silo. The message: nuclear warheads have been launched, and it's only 70 minutes to Armageddon! This unsettling news casts severe doubts over the future of Edwards' and Winningham's relationship.

DJANGO presented by KJZZ

DJANGO presented by KJZZ

Join FilmBar and KJZZ for a special screening of DJANGO about the world famous jazz guitarist, Django Reinhardt. Live Jazz in the lounge before the screening. Hosted by KJZZ Music Director and Host, Blaise Lantana. A portion of the proceeds will benefit KJZZ.

Reinhardt, elegantly interpreted by Reda Kateb (A Prophet, Zero Dark Thirty), is the toast of 1943 Paris, thrilling audiences with his distinctive brand of “hot jazz” and charming his admirers including his muse played by Cécile de France (Hereafter, Chinese Puzzle). But even as the rise of Nazism forces Reinhardt — whose music is considered degenerate under the Third Reich — to make a daring escape from Paris, he refuses to be silenced as his music becomes a form of protest. Reda Kateb’s performance is simply impressive and will certainly please all fans of Django. A spirited biopic that will keep audiences on their tapping toes.

Friday the 13th Part 3 with Memoriam Documentary

Screening of Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982) followed by the AZ Premiere of FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3 THE MEMORIAM DOCUMENTARY (2017) with Director Kevin R. Phipps, Producer Ruben Angelo & Co-Producer Shannon Dia.

In April 2013, the Friday the 13th family suddenly lost Mr. Richard Brooker. Portraying Jason in Friday the 13th part 3, he was the first individual to don the now iconic hockey mask. Richard was a terrific human being & a friend to all.

In addition, the Higgins Haven cabin used in the film burned down in 2006 by some careless vagrants. These two events sparked Executive Producer Sean Richards into action to do something with the one of a kind on location footage he shot in 2003 & 2005. It was the last known photography shot before the set's demise in 2006.

The project has brought on board various Friday the 13th alumni that starred in part 3 as well as friends of Richard's that are still working in the film industry today. Their interviews are pivotal in giving the backstory of the production of part 3 as well as insight into the man Richard Brooker was

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

R

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.

Christian is the respected curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who drives an electric car and supports good causes. His next show is “The Square”, an installation which invites passersby to altruism, reminding them of their role as responsible fellow human beings. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian’s foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum's PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for ”The Square”. The response is overblown and sends Christian, as well as the museum, into an existential crisis.

Oh my Gaaaawwd! Join local film podcast, Cult Film in Review, as they host a screening of the one of the best, worst films ever made, Troll 2!

With its over the top acting and low budget effects, Troll 2 has become a beloved cult film that rivals the likes of other so-bad-they’re-good movies such as Plan 9 From Outer Space and The Room. Over the years Troll 2 has garnered a huge following and is often screened side by side with other cult classics such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Troll 2 was originally promoted as the “sequel” to the 1986, Charles Band (Ghoulies, Puppetmaster, Trancers) produced, fantasy film, Troll - despite having virtually nothing in common with it.

When a family of four vacations to the small, rural town of Nilbog they find themselves chased down by vegetarian goblins hell bent on magically transforming them into meaty greens for consumption.

After the film, stay for a live show from Cody Everett, Kyle Smith, Chris Wilembrecht, and Mike Sallustio of Cult Film in Review as they discuss, celebrate, and riff on this quintessential cult classic.
