THE FURIES

THE FURIES

In this Freudian riff on King Lear, director Anthony Mann pits the relentlessly controlling cattle baron T.C. Jeffords (Walter Huston) against his firebrand daughter (Barbara Stanwyck) when a new woman enters his life. Introduction from Elyce Helford, Middle Tennessee State University

JOHNNY GUITAR

JOHNNY GUITAR

Arizona saloon-owner Vienna (Joan Crawford) hires her gunslinging ex-lover to help her keep threats from the locals at bay. Nicholas Ray’s “phony Western” is one of Hollywood’s strangest and most feminist, and a high point of both Ray and Crawford’s careers. Introduction from Mark Wollaeger, Vanderbilt University

PSYCHO

PSYCHO

Alfred Hitchcock’s genre-defining slasher masterpiece about an on-the-lam embezzling secretary who happens upon a motel run by a very peculiar young man.

EVIL DEAD 2

EVIL DEAD 2

The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits is left to clean up the mess with the only tools he has on hand: a chainsaw and a shotgun. Groovy!

ALICE, SWEET ALICE

ALICE, SWEET ALICE

When a young girl (Brooke Shields) is brutally murdered during her first communion, her disturbed and withdrawn older sister (Paula E. Sheppard) becomes the main suspect in this criminally underrated, twisty Hitchcock riff by director Alfred Sole.

BABE: PIG IN THE CITY

BABE: PIG IN THE CITY

Part of Staff Picks and programmed by Max, who says: “Far too often, children’s cinema shies away from topics that might be scary or sad, but BABE: PIG IN THE CITY is unafraid to tackle tough topics. Both dark and moving, it is a marvel of narrative and set design, boasting one of the most beautifully crafted fictional cities in film.”

Peripheral Visions: MANIAC

Peripheral Visions: MANIAC

Director William Lustig’s infamous gritty masterpiece is the New York City-set tale of a deeply disturbed serial killer (Joe Spinell) who collects the scalps and clothes of his victims to outfit his ever-growing assortment of mannequins.

THE LAST MOVIE

Dennis Hopper’s radical, much-mythologized lost masterpiece—widely unseen for nearly 50 years—follows a Hollywood movie crew in the midst of making a Western in a remote Peruvian village. New 4K DCP Restoration

CARNIVAL OF SOULS

CARNIVAL OF SOULS

A tragic drag racing accident leaves a sole survivor, Mary Henry, who pulls up roots and takes a new job to distance herself from the traumatic event. Despite the move, she is haunted by visions of a man who seems to be beckoning her to an abandoned carnival at the edge of town.

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

One, Two, Freddy’s Coming For You… Nancy and her peers are having bad dreams. A clawed maniac with severe facial scarring haunts them in their sleep, picking them off one-by-one as the nightmare crosses into reality.

THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES

A doctor, scientist, organist and biblical scholar, Anton Phibes (Vincent Price) seeks revenge on the nine doctors he considers responsible for his wife's death.

12 Hours of Terror

12 Hours of Terror

The Belcourt’s annual all-night horror festival rises like a vampire from its tomb to bring you a non-stop, all-night buffet of the best in ghastly grotesqueries, macabre mayhem, and outrageous obscurities spanning the decades.

GREY GARDENS

GREY GARDENS

Part of Staff Picks and programmed by Isabel, who says “Something important is hidden in this movie, some strange truth about who we are. What are we doing here? Where are we going?”

THE HAUNTING

THE HAUNTING

The stories you’ve heard about Hill House? They’re all true. For 90 years, it has stood alone, isolated, patient. Now a group of four find themselves in a trap of their own making; a nightmare maw of wood and stone and secrets, slowly closing around them.

THE FOG

THE FOG

The last time the fog rolled in from sea, just off Spivey Point, six lives were lost, and the fledgling town of Antonio Bay was born from the wreckage of that tragedy. But now, 100 years later, the fog has returned, bringing with it something unspeakable.

CŒUR FIDÈLE (THE FAITHFUL HEART) with live score performed by Alloy Orchestra

CŒUR FIDÈLE (THE FAITHFUL HEART) with live score performed by Alloy Orchestra

The renowned Alloy Orchestra—whom Roger Ebert called “the best in the world at accompanying silent film”—returns to provide its signature musical accompaniment to this recent restoration of Jean Epstein’s formal tour de force: a tragic love story transformed into a visual feast set against the bars, docks and amusements of old Marseille.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
