Cinematheque to Show First Movies at Future Uptown Location

Add event to my calendar

The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque time-travels to its not-too-distant future this summer when it screens four movies at its upcoming Uptown location.

On two Mondays and two Thursdays in July and August, the Cinematheque will present four new films (including three Cleveland premieres) in the Mandel Screening Room, a year-old space on the third floor of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Joseph McCullough Center at 11610 Euclid Avenue. This 40-seat room—outfitted with an HD projector, surround sound, carpet, and comfy seats—is just a few hundred feet from the location of the soon-to-be-built Peter B. Lewis Auditorium, the future home of the Cinematheque, which will be located in the CIA’s new George Gund Building (due to open in 2015).

This Mandel Screening Room series, dubbed “Uptown Color” by Cinematheque Director John Ewing, allows the Cinematheque to show some new movies available only in digital formats. These are movies that currently can’t be projected in Aitken Auditorium, a large film-only venue on East Boulevard and the Cinematheque’s regular home. (However, weekend Cinematheque movies this summer will continue to be shown in Aitken.) “Uptown Color” will take place on July 8, 15, 25, and August 1, and kicks off with the East Side premiere of Upstream Color, the provocative new film from Shane (PRIMER) Carruth that is one of the most acclaimed and fascinating independent movies of this year. All four movies in the series will show two times—at 5:45 pm and 7:45 pm—and admission to each film is $9, Cinematheque members $7, age 25 & under $6. (The Cinematheque accepts cash/check only.) There is free parking for filmgoers in the Institute’s McCullough Center lot off E. 117th St. Entrance to the building is through the rear door, off the parking lot.

For further information, call John Ewing or Tim Harry at (216) 421-7450 or visit cia.edu/Cinematheque.

“Uptown Color”

July 8, 15, 25 & August 1 in the Mandel Screening Room inside the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Joseph McCullough Center at 11610 Euclid Avenue. Each film $9; Cinematheque members $7; age 25 & under $6.

Upstream Color
USA, 2013, Shane Carruth
Tonight the Cinematheque heads Uptown to show the first of four digital movies in the new, 40-seat Mandel Screening Room inside the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. (Moviegoers can park free in the CIA lot off of E. 117th St. Enter the building through the rear entrance.) Upstream Color, the fascinating second mindf**k by Shane Carruth (Primer), is one of the most acclaimed and talked about films of 2013. It’s an experimental sci-fi drama about a man and a woman (Carruth and Amy Seimetz) who are unknowing victims of a mysterious parasite that has entered their bodies and ravaged their lives. Director Carruth tells their shared story—and lays out the parasite’s entire cryptic life cycle—through a series of sumptuous, sometimes unsettling images. “It's all a neat trick. Or exercise. Or brain-teaser. Whatever you want to call it, Upstream Color is like nothing you've ever seen before. But once you have seen it, once isn't going to be enough.” –Arizona Republic. East Side Cleveland premiere. Blu-ray. 96 min. No radio winners. www.upstreamcolor.com

Sightseers
UK, 2012, Ben Wheatley
In the acclaimed new film from rocketing up-and-comer Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Down Terrace), two geeky, thirtysomething British misfits, Tina and Chris, take a relaxing “caravan” holiday in Northern England that soon degenerates into a murderous rampage. Produced by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead). “A pitch-black and sometimes gorily violent laugh-riot.” –The Hollywood Reporter. “Five stars (highest rating)...A sick gag of a film that’s bound to scar only the irony-challenged.” –Time Out New York. Adults only! Cleveland theatrical premiere. Blu-ray. 88 min. Shown in the Mandel Screening Room at CIA’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the CIA lot off E. 117th St. No radio winners. http://www.ifcfilms.com/films/sightseers

Kiss of the Damned
USA, 2012, Xan Cassavetes
This “appealingly affectionate homage to ‘70s baroque horror films” (Time Out New York) was directed by John Cassavetes’ daughter. It’s a sexy, full-bodied vampire picture about a smitten screenwriter who willingly submits to a strawberry blonde bloodsucker, until her even more vampish and voracious sister (Roxane Mesquida) disrupts the couple’s bloody bliss. “Saucily thumbing its nose at the insipid teen love of the Twilight franchise, Kiss reimagines its bloodsuckers as horny, supercilious Eurotrash with addiction issues…Rapacious lovers of cult cinema will sink their fangs into this.” –Variety. Adults only! Cleveland theatrical premiere. Blu-ray. 97 min. Shown in the Mandel Screening Room at CIA’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the CIA lot off E. 117th St. No radio winners. www.magnetreleasing.com/kissofthedamned/

Shadow Dancer
UK/Ireland, 2012, James Marsh
Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough (W.E., Oblivion) star in the new film from the director of Man on Wire and Project Nim. It’s a taut, slow-burn thriller, set in 1993 Belfast, about an Irish woman and I.R.A. member who agrees to become a mole for MI5 rather than go to prison and leave her young son. With Gillian Anderson. “Critics’ Pick…Gripping.” –The NY Times. Cleveland theatrical premiere. Blu-ray. 101 min. Shown in the Mandel Screening Room at CIA’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the CIA lot off E. 117th St. No radio winners. www.magpictures.com/shadowdancer/
