TONIGHT! THE MAGICK LANTERN CYCLE: PART 1
Kenneth Anger, USA, 1947-1964, 100min, 16mm
Thursday, March 20th, 7pm. PURCHASE TICKETS HERE.
Kenneth Anger: filmmaker, author, queer art pioneer, Crowleyan occultist, disputed child star - feared and respected in equal measure by swaggering rock icons and the decadent Hollywood elite. It is a name which evokes mystery and grandeur, matched by an unparalleled 75+ year career as one of America’s dominant counter-cultural figures. For the months of March and April, we proudly present The Magick Lantern Cycle, the fabled 10-film backbone of Anger’s life work. This month’s screening features the films Fireworks, Puce Moment, Eaux D’Artifice, Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome, and Scorpio Rising, all presented on 16mm film prints courtesy of Canyon Cinema.

As we trudge through the final moments of Winter, we present to you two live albums born out of the sweaty and oppressive Tennessee Summer… DIVINE FITS, comprised of Spoon’s Britt Daniel, Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs’ Dan Boeckner, Gaunt/New Bomb Turks’ Sam Brown and Alex Fischel, recorded an epic set in July of 2013, ending the performance by bringing a fan up on stage to destroy a piñata and litter the blue room with Snickers and Twix…  Rock ‘n’ roll at its sweetest. All-American grunge pioneers MUDHONEY joined us later in the Summer while touring in support of their ninth (ninth!) studio album, bringing a little piece of Seattle to our lathe room, and now to your turntables and earholes. Both Mudhoney and Divine Fits' 12” LP’s are available for pre-order today. Official release date is next Tuesday, March 4th.
