8/12-14: Behind The Burly Q, A Night At The Opera And More!

08/10/10  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Cinematheque brings new burlesque documentary to Capitol Theatre on W. 65th BEHIND THE BURLY Q is an affectionate, well-researched overview of the world of classic burlesque-its strippers, dancers, and comedians. Leslie Zemeckis' movie includes new, contemporary interviews with some of the industry's most famous performers (Blaze Starr, Tempest Storm, et al.). Watch the trailer and then see the whole film this Thursday night when the Cinematheque returns to the newly restored Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th Street at Detroit Avenue. Regular Cinematheque prices apply. This movie is for adults only.

Spanish thriller [REC] also plays Capitol Thursday night's second film at the Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th Street at Detroit Ave.) is [REC], a 2007 Spanish horror film that, despite considerable international acclaim, was never released theatrically in the U.S. (though the innovative thinkers in Hollywood remade it as QUARANTINE). [REC] (as in "record button") is a shaky-cam shocker in which a TV reporter and her cameraman follow firemen to a Barcelona apartment complex only to discover that the place is not burning, it's crawling with zombies! And they get locked in with them! Watch the trailer and we think you'll be hooked -- and will also want to see the new sequel [REC] 2 by the same directors at the Cinematheque on August 26 & 29. More smiles of a summer night: COMEDY STARS UNDER THE STARS 3 Bring a folding chair and a readiness to laugh to the Cleveland Institute of Art's outdoor courtyard Saturday night (the courtyard is right off the student lounge) for COMEDY STARS UNDER THE STARS 3, an end-of-the-summer comedy blowout! Once again, weather permitting, we will show four two-reel silent comedies featuring the four greatest clowns of the American silent screen: Charlie Chaplin in "The Adventurer" (1917); Buster Keaton in "The Electric House" (1922) (pictured above); Harold Lloyd in "From Hand to Mouth" (aka "The Inheritance," 1919); and Harry Langdon in "His Marriage Wow" (1925). Kids 12 & under $6. In case of rain, films will show in Aitken Auditorium. Jules Dassin series continues with rare, never-on-video-or-DVD HE WHO MUST DIE Melina Mercouri and Jean Servais star in HE WHO MUST DIE, a 1957 French/Italian Jules Dassin rarity that's never been released on video or DVD in the U.S. Based on a Kazantzakis novel, the movie is a religious allegory set in a small Greek village on Turkish-dominated Crete during the early 1920s. There the townsfolk's preparations for their annual Passion play are interrupted by the arrival of a group of impoverished political refugees. The villagers' natural inclination to help these people is opposed by both the local priest and the head of the town council, who fear that charity will threaten their truce with the Turks and strain the town's economic resources. Don't miss the 35mm scope print of this rarity that we will show this Friday and Saturday. In fact, print this email and present it at the boxoffice and see HE WHO MUST DIE for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week. (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Hilarious NIGHT AT THE OPERA is arguably Marx Bros' best film; Aug. 21 screening of DAY AT THE RACES has been canceled A NIGHT AT THE OPERA is, along with DUCK SOUP, the Marx Brothers' most celebrated movie. Written by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, it follows Groucho as he tries to persuade wealthy Margaret Dumont to invest in a failing opera house. The comedy contains some of the brothers' greatest routines-including the famous stateroom scene (pictured above). Kids 12 & under will be admitted for $6. Wear your Groucho glasses and save a buck yourself, or buy a pair of Groucho glasses for only $2 at the box office and then save a buck. (So the glasses really cost only $1!) Please note that the Saturday, August 21, 5:30 pm showing of the Marx Bros' A DAY AT THE RACES has been canceled. We will show that movie only one time -- on Sunday, August 22, at 6:30 pm. We apologize for any inconvenience.
