Hello from the New Year,
CoMoGives has come to a close and, with no exaggeration, your support has made another year of programming, innovation, and opportunity possible. It’s been said before, but we cannot do this without our community so—thank you.
At the Cinema, Tragedy of Macbeth and Licorice Pizza continue their runs, but chances to catch Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest on 35mm are running out: All shows through Thursday, January 6th are on celluloid, with final curtain calls on Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm. After that, Licorice Pizza proceeds on DCP.
But fear not, film-fanatics, as reels will continue to spin at our humble cinematek throughout the year. Next Thursday, January 13 at 9pm, we offer Dasha Nekrasova’s torrid debut, The Scary of Sixty-First, on 35mm. On the surface, horrors are unlocked as two young women move into a New York City apartment once owned by convicted sex-trafficer Jeffrey Epstein. But beyond the immediate, the film makes alchemy of shock cinema, 1970s paranoia thrillers, the darker sides of the internet, and the conspiracy theories that have breached American government. Subversive in its politics and its humor, the film is a gleefully transgressive and polarizing experience. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Further, Sean Baker’s Red Rocket opens Friday, January 14; Panorama: True/False at Ragtag Cinema kicks off on Monday, January 17 with Wang Qiong's All About My Sisters; and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (on 35mm) opens our Passport celebration of Pedro Almodóvar on Tuesday, January 18.
There’s a lot to be excited for,
