INVINCIBLE: FIVE TOUGH FILMS
OUT OF THE BLUE (1980, 35mm) Linda Manz will chill your soul as Cebe, a disaffected, punkworshipping teenager whose dad (Dennis Hopper) is in prison for a school bus accident (brought to life in the nightmarish opening scene). Living with her junkie mother, Cebe has to embrace the very essence of detached, fuck-you punk attitude just to get survive. Hoping that their lives will turn around when her dad gets out of prison, she tragically discovers that the terrors of addiction and abuse can be inescapable and the movie builds to an all-time gut-wrenching shocker of an ending. We’ll be screening a new 35mm print of this unsung classic! TIMES SQUARE (1980, 35mm) Two girls run away from a mental institution and forge a relationship in the grungy wonderland of midtown New York. ey soon link up with disc jockey Johnny LaGuardia (Tim Curry) and form an underground punk rock band -- e Sleez Sisters -- who become a hit with the city’s disillusioned youth, encouraging fellow misunderstood post-pubescent girls to take on parents, authorities and the establishment. But will the Sleez Girls be torn apart? Or will they tear themselves apart? It’s the best parts of a half-dozen great ‘80s films, only better. One of the first teen movies to feature predominantly punk and New Wave music, TIMES SQUARE captures the essence of post-’70s New York decay, immortalizing the famous porn district that has since been transformed into a characterless mega-mall. “Go Sleaze!” THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN (1985, 35mm) Helen Slater and Christian Slater (unrelated, despite their roles of sister and brother) star in this indisputable ‘80s youth classic about a Corpus Christi teenager who becomes an outlaw in her quest for justice. Fighting under the slogan “Fair is fair,” Billie Jean goes on the run from the law with her brother and best friends, becoming an unlikely hero for oppressed teens everywhere. After cutting her hair as an homage to Joan of Arc, the once demure Billie Jean transforms into an authentic Texas outlaw by taking a stand against e Man. A rousing, bloodboiling no-rules rampage in the name of anti-adult empowerment! STREETWISE (1984, 35mm) is unflinching documentary about homeless teens living on the streets of Seattle (“America’s Most Livable City”) in the early ‘80s began as a photo-essay in Life magazine and reflects those roots by refusing to structure itself around an easy narrative or comment on the lives of the kids it follows. Escaping poverty, abuse or abandonment, they are forced to rely on panhandling, prostitution, petty crime and drugs just to get by. By sympathetically observing their impossibly hard lives, STREETWISE honors their daily battles and shares the pride these kids feel in simply surviving. is totally devestating film will sear itself into your memory forever. “ e only bad part about flying is having to come back down to the fucking world.” LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS (1982, 35mm) “Every girl should be given an electric guitar on her 16th birthday.” Dare to witness the electrifyingly entertaining rise and fall of the world’s ultimate fictional female punk band. Teenage trio e Fabulous Stains (including Diane Lane and Laura Dern) tear fists-first into the music industry in new wave battlegear, letting nothing stand in the way of their revolutionary assault on a deflating male-dominated record industry. Featuring raging footage of e Looters and Black Randy & e Metrosquad and performances from a young Ray Winstone and Fee Waybill of e Tubes, this legendary battle call to young female rockers, wavers and punks everywhere is a crucial and explosive experience, unstoppably enjoyable and often credited as being a fundamental inspiration to the historic Riot Grrl musical/social movement. Screening on December 2nd.

VIDEO HATE SQUAD
RIDER OF THE SKULLS (1965, VHS) From Santo’s crusades against vampire wrestlers to clown-midgets who attack children with butcher knives, every south-of-theborder horror adventure feels like it escaped from an alternate dimension where Dracula is president, every day is Halloween, and pulp crime magazines are substituted for newspapers. RIDER OF THE SKULLS is the ultimate distillation of this spook-folk paradise. A werewolf! A vampire! A headless horseman! And a masked cowboy, dressed in black and sworn to protect the world from skull-faced cult members, cackling witches, and a dismembered head in a box! is is the cheapo Mexican monster bash that can’t be contained or explained.

EXPLOITATION CLASSICS IN 35MM

MEAN FRANK & CRAZY TONY (1973, 35mm) Italian crime movies are the best. Lee Van Cleef stars as a supernaturally cool mafia don who finds himself thrown in jail with a twitchy small-time hood (Tony Lo Bianco) eager to prove his mettle to his hero. Together they escape from prison and seek revenge on their enemies. is is a fun, fast, brutal and frankly kind of stupid film from the golden era. PART-TIME WIFE (1975, 35mm) Some of the best, most vigorous and intelligent films of the drive-in era came from Arthur Marks. He gilded his movies with little grace notes and winks at the discriminating film-goer. is rarity stars the great Keenan Wynn as a rich patriarch who returns from Las Vegas to his family home with a glamorous new wife in tow. Soon, blackmail, double-crosses, and murder become family traits. JOHNNY FIRECLOUD (1975, 35mm) A hard-driving 18-wheeler of Native American revenge. With overblown racist villains and tons of nudity and gore, plus Ralph Meeker as the bad guy and one of the most memorable threats ever: “Boy, one day me and you are gonna tangle assholes.” No comment. KARATE KILLERS ON WHEELS (1976, 35mm) A biker revenge movie from the legendary Shaw Bros. Don’t expect any karate, or even very much kung fu, but there are wheels galore in this story of tough miniature desperadoes humping two-stroke Kawasakis in an orgy of juvenile delinquency.
