AGFA’s Cinemapocalypse at FilmBar: Spider Baby

AGFA’s Cinemapocalypse at FilmBar: Spider Baby

The credits dub this “the maddest story ever told”, a promise that’s well on the way to being fulfilled in the opening scene alone, when Virginia traps and kills a hapless deliveryman in her makeshift web. She’s one of three siblings who suffer from a unique genetic disorder that causes them to regress back to childhood, while retaining the physical strength and sexual maturity of adults.

Lon Chaney Jr gave one of his most memorable late performances as Bruno, their guardian and protector, who has managed to cover up their crimes until two distant relatives lay claim to their house. When they insist on moving in, Bruno has to cross his fingers and hope that the ‘children’ behave towards their new guests...

This was the first solo feature by Jack Hill, whom Quentin Tarantino dubbed “the Howard Hawks of exploitation filmmaking”, and it remains one of his wildest and weirdest.

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

Beauty and the Beast: Philip Glass Score

Presented in conjunction with Arizona Opera. Presented with Philip Glass’s opera La Belle et la Bête, as an alternate soundtrack!

Jean Cocteau’s sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece—in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast—is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in Beauty and the Beast (La Belle et la Bête) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder.

Black Sabbath: The End of the End

Black Sabbath: The End of the End

Presented with support from Zia Records!

The End of The End chronicles the final tour from the band who forged the sound of metal - Black Sabbath. On 4th February, 2017, the band took to the stage in Birmingham, the city where it all began, to play the 81st and final gig of The End tour - bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned almost half a century.

The sold out show marked the culmination of a tour that had seen them play to well over a million fans in arenas across the globe. Since their beginnings in 1968, they created a sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world – an influence which is still felt to this day.

The End of The End is the story of that final, emotionally-charged concert. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close and personal with the band on stage as they perform genre-defining hits, from Iron Man to Paranoid to War Pigs, amongst others. Sabbath also took the opportunity to spend some time in the studio, delivering a unique performance of some of their favourite songs.

This film gives fans an intimate glimpse into the band’s relationships and their banter with each other, with both individual and group recollections from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.

The band’s loyal following spans generations and this is the opportunity for fans, young and old, to come together and see the boys from Birmingham doing what they do best, almost 50 years after they started. This is the final word from the greatest metal band of all time.

Blackenstein hosted by Marshall Shore

Blackenstein hosted by Marshall Shore

Join Marshall Shore, the Hip Historian and Cindy Lee (niece of Blackenstein Writer/Producer Frank R. Saletri) as they host a screening of BLACKENSTEIN, featuring AZ Native Liz Renay (Desperate Living). A portion of the proceeds to benefit the Arizona LGBT+ History Project.

You may have heard of this infamous Blaxploitation/Horror hybrid, but the real story is even more bizarre: In 1973, criminal-lawyer-turned-wannabe-monster-movie-mogul Frank R. Saletri wrote and produced this grindhouse hit about a Black soldier mortally wounded in Vietnam transformed into a rampaging monster by an L.A. mad scientist. Almost a decade later, Saletri himself would be murdered gangland-style in a crime that remains debated – and unsolved – to this day. John Hart (TV’s “The Lone Ranger”), ‘40s Hollywood starlet Andrea King (THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS) and even former mob moll/stripper Liz Renay (DESPERATE LIVING) star in this jaw-dropper directed by William A. Levey (THE HAPPY HOOKER GOES TO WASHINGTON) - Severin Films.

The Terrifying Battle Between The Mightiest Monsters of All Time!

The two biggest monsters of all time battle in the thrilling adventure classic, King Kong vs. Godzilla. When an underhanded pharmaceutical company goes to a remote tropical island to steal King Kong for advertising purposes, they get more than they bargained for when the gigantic ape attacks an unsuspecting village and an enormous octopus. Meanwhile, far below the sea, a submarine crew unleashes reptilian terror when they melt a block of ice and release the ferocious Godzilla from his icy lair. When both destructive monsters descend on Tokyo, it's a fight that holds the future of mankind in the balance in this knock-out film that was the first theatrical release to bring its larger-than-life contenders to the big screen in glorious color.

Join us for a Big Gay sing-a-long of the cult classic HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH! Costumes encouraged! Giveaways prior to the show. A portion of the proceeds to benefit Charity. Hosted by Christopher Tong!

SPECIAL GUEST: Caleb Reese, the star of Phoenix Theatre and A/C Theatre Company's live theatrical production of HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH (September 20 - November 12) will make an appearance at the first screening!

Hedwig was born a boy named Hansel in Communist East Berlin who dreamed of finding his other half and becoming a big American rock star. When a handsome American GI promises love and liberation, it seems like a dream come true. But there's a catch-in order to marry and emigrate Hansel must "leave a little something behind." Hedwig survives a botched sex change operation that leaves her with an "angry inch" only to be stranded in a Kansas trailer park the very day the Berlin Wall comes down. Undeterred, Hedwig dons immaculate makeup and a Farrah Fawcett wig and forms a rock band-The Angry Inch. While supporting herself with babysitting gigs, she falls for a 16-year-old Jesus freak she renames Tommy Gnosis. Tommy steals her songs and becomes the rock star Hedwig always dreamed she'd be. Refusing to be defeated, she fiercely performs in crumbling theme restaurants seeking recognition, retribution, and reconciliation with her other half.

Ingrid Goes West

Rfor language throughout, drug use, some sexual content and disturbing behavior

Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) is an unhinged social media stalker with a history of confusing “likes” for meaningful relationships. Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) is an Instagram-famous “influencer” whose perfectly curated, boho-chic lifestyle becomes Ingrid’s latest obsession. When Ingrid moves to LA and manages to insinuate herself into the social media star’s life, their relationship quickly goes from #BFF to #WTF. Built around a brilliantly disarming performance from Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West (winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance) is a savagely hilarious dark comedy that satirizes the modern world of social media and proves that being #perfect isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

L7: Pretend We're Dead

Presented with support from Zia Records!

L7: Pretend We’re Dead takes us on an all-access journey into the 1990’s grunge movement that took the world by storm, and the band that helped define it as the genre of a generation.

Culled from over 100 hours of vintage home movies taken by the band, never-before-seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We're Dead is an engrossing time capsule told from the perspective of L7, these true insiders who brought their signature blend of grunge punk to the masses!

Chronicling the early days of the band's formation in 1985 to their height as the 'queens of grunge,' the film takes a roller coaster ride through L7’s triumphs and failures, a classic tale of rags to riches to rags.

Murderess presented by Trunk Space

Murderess presented by Trunk Space

On the night of Friday, October 16th, 1931, Winnie Ruth Judd had a fight with her two best friends that ended in a double fatality. Two nights later, she boarded a train headed for LA, with grisly baggage that contained the bodies---one dismembered---of her former friends. When the trunks were found to be leaking blood upon arrival, Winnie was asked to open them. Claiming she forgot the key, she walked out of the station and disappeared into thin air. One week later, she surrendered in a funeral parlor, a bullet lodged in her left hand, claiming the women attacked her and that she had only shot in self defense. Oddly enough, some of the physical evidence seemed to support this story. However, instead of getting simpler the story got weirder and wilder as more became known (or unknown, depending on whose version you chose to believe), involving adultery, narcotics, mental illness, secrets and whispers of a conspiracy. To this day, the truth remains a mystery.

"Murderess'" was the brainchild of writer/director Scott Coblio, a Los Angeles native. The film was shot on miniDV tape and took 3 years to complete. It debuted at Rochester New York's Little Theater as the anchor-piece of the "Image Out" Film Festival, where it garnered positive reviews from the local press. In 2008, the film won the Best Animated Feature award in Los Angeles at the DIY Film Fest. Screening the film annually on (or near) October 16th (the night of the murders) has become a tradition at the Trunk Space, and this year's screening marks the 11th anniversary of that tradition.

A movie about a movie theater?

The film features interviews with a who's who of influential independent film creatives including Joe Carnahan, Joe Dante, Seth Green, Rian Johnson, John Landis, Patton Oswalt, Kevin Smith and many more. OUT OF PRINT celebrates the world of Revival and Art House Cinema where 35mm film prints are still going strong, making a strong case for why 35mm presentation should be allowed to coexist with digital forever.

Pearl Jam Let's Play Two

Pearl Jam Let's Play Two

Let’s Play Two is a concert film that chronicles Pearl Jam’s legendary performances at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music.

From Ten to Lightning Bolt, the concert film shuffles through Pearl Jam’s ever-growing catalog of originals and covers -- spanning the band's 25-year career. The film includes exclusive interviews and a behind-the-scenes look as the Wrigleyville neighborhood transitions seamlessly from the atmosphere of a Cubs' win to the anticipation of, and preparation for, the concerts.

Through the eyes of renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, the film showcases the journey of this special relationship -- using the past and present of both the band and the Chicago Cubs through the music, the sweat and the eternal hopes of being both: a Cubs fan and Pearl Jam fan.

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.
