Sunday Secret Matinee: Gangsters and Acid – final 2 shows


Only 2 Sunday Secret Matinees left!

Sundays @ 3pm @ Northwest Film Forum @ 1515 12th Ave. @ Cap Hill, between Pike & Pine

This Sunday, May 17:

FEATURE: Here’s grapefruit in yer eye, pal. Jimmy Cagney kicks your sorry ass all up and down the street in his breakthrough role. One of the AFI’s top 10 gangster films of all time, and a great flick from the early sound era.

CARTOONS: Dudley Do-Right (Jay Ward, 1962) has a crisis of confidence in a complete 2-part adventure.

SHORT: The Thieving Hand (J. Stuart Blackton, 1908) – an amputee’s new artificial arm wonders what’s in yer pockets.

PLUS: The thrilling conclusion of ZORRO’S FIGHTING LEGION — that rat bastard Don Del Oro is finally “Unmasked!”

AND an extra special treat: the rare original preview trailer for ZORRO’S FIGHTING LEGION.

And don’t miss our special series finale or you’ll totally freak out…

Sunday, May 24:

All films in widescreen 16mm Cinemascope, featuring:

Roger Rabbit in TRAIL MIX-UP (1993) – excellent theatrical short. New print!
The forgotten Brit-band Freddie and the Dreamers perform “What’s Cookin'” from the forgotten rock musical, EVERY DAY IS A HOLIDAY (1965). Hell, why not.

And the legendary acid-musical-comedy cult classic:

SKIDOO (1968)
Otto Preminger’s demented and disowned paean to LSD. Dude…check out the stars: Jackie Gleason, Groucho Marx as God (in his final role), Carol Channing, Frankie Avalon, Mickey Rooney, Frank Gorshin, Peter Lawford, George Raft, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith, Kirk Douglas, and John Phillip Law as “Stash.” With original songs by Harry Nilsson, who also sings the final credits (all of them).

Insanely rare print! Never released to home video! The movie event of the season!

Hope you can make it. Please fly responsibly, and do not feed the unicorns.
