What looked like your typical T&A comedy turned out to be one of the decade's most interesting role reversals comedies. When the high school newspaper dismisses Terry's article, she kick starts a personal journey exploring not only her school's inequality towards women and men but ends up questioning the whole damn decade! Keep your eyes glued for an oversexed Sherilyn Fenn and prepare for Billy Jayne who gives one of the funniest little brother performances ever! Preceded by other 80s T&A trailers. Archive print courtesy of Columbia. 90 minutes

9:30pm - POiNT BREAK (1991)
Directed by Kathryn Bigelow
Containing: Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Gary Busey, Lori Petty & Tom Sizemore

domo Even though the film has created quite a Cult following over the past 20 years, many still have not watched the film in it's entirely, much less learned to appreciate the true brilliance of Kathryn Bigelow's exploration of Man's "purpose". Combining subversive politics, action scenes on-par with John Woo's greatest moments (THE KILLER, HARDBOILED), killer surfing sequences and a relationship that's "for the ages", you've got yourself one helluva contemporary classic! RARE Original WIDESCREEN 35mm print. Preceded by other Crayze Swayze trailers! 120 minutes. MiSS THiS AND CRY!

11:59pm - MANiAC: DIRECTOR'S CUT (1980)
Written by Joe Spinell & C.A. Rosenberg
Directed by
William Lustig; Special Effects by Tom Savini
Containing: Joe Spinell, Caroline Munro and Tom Savini
Earning instant notoriety in 1980 as the most graphic and disturbing of all stalker films, due to the SFX wizardry of Tom Savini DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978), many critics and audiences walked out in the first 10 minutes. (Even Siskel & Ebert called for their audience to boycott the film!) This extremely violent exploration of a deranged serial killer and his issues with gender, has an amazingly surreal and psychotic grit that all the most recent torture-porn films only dream of achieving. It's time to take another look at this horrific and mean spirited baddie in a BRAND NEW RESTORED UNRATED VERSION (Complete with the hotel room sequence!). Like the lost brother of Abel Ferrara's DRILLER KILLER (1979) and MS. 45 (1981), this shock-masterpiece has quite a lot more goin' on than people gave it credit for. NEW 35mm Print courtesy of Grindhouse Pictures. Preceded by the meanest Stalker trailers I own. 88 minutes

Preceded by a Q&A with Director William Lustig IN PERSON!
