9/24-27: Visiting Filmmaker, Ozploitation & More!

09/22/09  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Canadian filmmaker comes to Cleveland to present her new doc on indie rock posters This Friday and Saturday night the Cinematheque welcomes Vancouver, BC filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian, who will answer questions after two screenings of her new documentary on underground rock 'n' roll posters, DIED YOUNG STAYED PRETTY. (You can watch the trailer here.) You can also hear Yaghoobian this coming Friday between noon and 1 pm on "Around Noon" on WCPN 90.3 FM. Due to extenuating circumstances, poster designer Art Chantry will not appear in person with Yaghoobian on Friday night, as previously announced. We apologize to anyone who may be disappointed. Harry Langdon's best silent comedy receives two rare screenings Harry Langdon is a baby-faced comic who is considered the fourth great comedian of the American silent screen -- after Chaplin, Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. But Mack Sennett thought he was more talented than all the others. Langdon made a number of terrific two-reelers during his career but only three exceptional features. THE STRONG MAN, which we show on Thursday and Sunday, is considered his best. Langdon plays a Belgian WWI vet who comes to the U.S. in order to find the woman he corresponded with during the war. He ends up in a city mired in corruption (but not Cleveland). The great Frank Capra made his directorial debut with this classic comedy that should not be missed. You can see "The Strong Man" for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member) by printing this post and presenting it at the box office. It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out.) Fans of silent and other classic cinema might like to attend this weekend's Fall Cinesation at the Lions Lincoln Theatre in Massillon, Ohio. 35mm and 16mm rarities from the silent and early sound era will be shown all weekend between Thursday night and Sunday afternoon; many of the movies will be seen in restored prints! For details, click here. New film celebrates the golden age of Aussie exploitation fims; James Cameron's ALIENS returns Thursday night NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF OZPLOITATIONexplores the low-budget, down-'n'-dirty, thrill- and action-packed movies that poured out of Austrlia in the 1970s and 1980s. (The Cinematheque premiered some of these films in Cleveland, like "Razorback" and "Dead-End Drive-In.") This clip-heavy new documentary features interviews with the people who made these potboilers (e.g., George "Mad Max" Miller), starred in them (e.g., Dennis Hopper and Jamie Lee Curtis), or revel in them (e.g., Quentin Tarantino and John Waters). See it Saturday or Sunday. It's for adults only! Speaking of action flicks, don't forget that we are also showing a brand-new, absolutely gorgeous new 35mm print of James Camerons ALIENS this Thursday night. 1962 French thriller LE COMBAT DANS L'ILE is a major rediscovery Don't be put off by the French title (always a concern for programmers like us); LE COMBAT DANS L'ILE("The Combat on the Island") is one of the major rediscoveries of recent years. Never before released in America, this 1962 French film by Alain Cavalier is essentially a love triangle set against the polarizing political backdrop of the Algerian War. Jean-Louis Trintignant, Romy Schneider, and Henry Serre (Jim in Truffaut's "Jules and Jim") star, and the gorgeous black-and-white cinematography is by the great Pierre Lhomme ("Army of Shadows"). Read The New York Times reviewand then catch the film in a new 35mm print on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. NY Times calls Cinematheque "one of the country's best repertory movie theatres" In his article "36 Hours in Cleveland" that appeared in the Travel section of this past Sunday's New York Times, writer Brett Sokol called the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque "one of the country's best repertory movie theatres." Furthermore, the Cinematheque was one of only three University Circle institutions named in the piece. The other two: the Cleveland Orchestra and the Cleveland Museum of Art -- good company for sure.
