Special event
A spooky evening with The Room
26 October 2018  21:30
THE ROOM
The Moviecard is not accepted for this special event.

THE ROOM is a sincere attempt by actor, director, writer, and producer Tommy Wiseau to create a romantic tragedy. Fortuantely it was so poorly made that it has attained cult status in LA, where monthly midnight screenings have been held for the last few years and audience participation has become a tradition.

Down in the swamp with films like Plan 9 from Outer Space and Troll 2, THE ROOM is so bad that it is among the top 10 bestselling comedies on amazon.com, and has even made it onto Wikipedia’s List of films considered the worst. You will find this movie so awful that you will want to watch it again and again.

• Is this the worst movie ever made? The Room is so unfeasibly bad, it has become a cult hit (The Guardian UK).
• “The Citizen Kane of bad movies” (Entertainment Weekly)
• “a bad – shockingly bad – romantic tragedy” (Time Out New York).

• “prompts most of its viewers to ask for their money back – before even 30 minutes have passed” (Variety).

Most film-makers have nightmares about reviews like these, but they’ve worked wonders for The Room, a movie whose transcendent awfulness has made it a cult phenomenon and an audience-participation fixture along the lines of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Special rate: $17

Ciné-Psy: Ex Machina (STF)
Alex Garland, writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine, makes his directorial debut with the stylish and cerebral thriller, EX MACHINA. Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company's brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test-charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan's latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated--and more deceptive--than the two men could have imagined.

Drawn from a never-before-seen cache of personal footage spanning decades, this is an intimate portrait of the Sri Lankan artist and musician who continues to shatter conventions. As a raw document of Arulpragasm’s life it’s a treasure trove of intimate insights.

American Chaos
Starting six months before the 2016 presidential election, director Jim Stern put his life on hold and — driven to understand what seemed incomprehensible at the time — traveled through red states to interview and spend time with Donald Trump supporters from different backgrounds. It was a search for insights and answers, for anything that could explain the billionaire’s surging appeal and why these voters remained untroubled by so many troubling things the candidate had said and done.

This journey became his Heart of Darkness into the American body politic at a profoundly critical point in our history. And the film he returned with, AMERICAN CHAOS, sheds unique light on difficult issues roiling the nation — chronicling a cultural divide, still dangerously misunderstood, that continues to tear at the fabric of our democracy.

Screenings of the film will be preceded by the short film Le Silence fait peur aux brutes as part of the Plein(s) Écran(s) en salle film series.

The artistic journey of Chilly Gonzales from Canada to the Berlin scene of the late 90s' and finally to philharmonies worldwide. The Grammy-winning eccentric inspired and collaborated with the likes of Daft Punk, Drake, Feist, Jarvis Cocker and Peaches. Crisscrossing between rap, electro and chamber music, Chilly Gonzales is the outrageous entertainer who invited himself into the ivory tower of classical music.

Fahrenheit 11/9
Palme d’Or–winning documentarian Michael Moore (Fahrenheit 9/11) turns his attention to another significant date, examining the legacy of Trump’s ascension to the US presidency on November 9, 2016.

In July 2016, Michael Moore was treated like a crackpot doomsayer for writing the essay "5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win." His prediction was the opposite of most pollsters and pundits but it came true in the wee hours of November 9, 2016 when the electoral college votes were tallied.

Now Moore brings his sharp satire to analyze the legacy of 11/9 and to raise questions about what lies ahead. Trump is a master distractor with his incendiary tweets, staff firings, and outright lies. But within the chaos, his administration has delivered on a right-wing agenda with tax cuts for the wealthy, environmental deregulation, court appointments, and treaty withdrawals that will be felt long into the future.

In Moore's three decades of filmmaking, he's often voiced progressive ideas that sound radical at first but eventually become mainstream. His most famous work, Fahrenheit 9/11 — named for another infamous date — decried the US's war in Iraq long before it became widely derided. A similar dynamic runs through Roger & Me on America's loss of industry, Bowling for Columbine on gun control, and Sicko on health care.

Moore likes to subvert expectations, so we'll refrain from disclosing too many details of Fahrenheit 11/9. Let's just say there are aspects that feel very timely in the lead-up to the US Congressional elections. But overall, this is an evergreen film that applies historical lessons from both progressive and repressive movements. It speaks strongly to a younger generation in the hope that they might fix what the previous generation has royally fucked up.
