    Double Feature: Two Films, One Ticket!
    
    (NOTE: This double feature now screens on Fri-Sat, instead of Sat-Sun as previously announced. We're undertaking some technical work over the next few weeks to expand our exhibition quality with the addition of digital capabilities and audio enhancements — which, in this case, required a schedule shift.)

    NEVER GIVE A SUCKER AN EVEN BREAK:
    In one the last films of his storied career, W.C. Fields plays himself trying to sell a movie producer on a ridiculous script about con artists taking on the Russian millionaires of Mexico. This uproarious comedy climaxes in an automobile chase shot in actual Los Angeles neighborhoods.


     

    COBRA WOMAN:
    Starring the “Queen of Technicolor” Maria Montez who plays the dual roles of a virtuous princess and her always lavishly-attired evil twin, the iron-fisted ruler of the lavish Cobra Island. The film’s levels of splendiferous kitch would prove influential to underground filmmakers over a quarter-century later (e.g., Divine’s performance in John Water’s FEMALE TROUBLE). Cobra Woman Trailer
