The bay area is about to get torn apart by tourists and football fans. But for those of us who don't have hundreds of dollars (or the interest) to attend any Super Bowl parties, the movies are always a perfect alternative. Here's what we can expect this week:

"The legendary occult “expose” from 1922, HAXAN, is given a new soundtrack performed live by Chicago-based ambient/metal masters Wreckmeister Harmonies. Grave robbing, torture, possessed nuns, and a satanic Sabbath: Benjamin Christensen’s shockingly beautiful silent film uses a series of dramatic vignettes to explore the scientific hypothesis that the witches of the Middle Ages suffered the same hysteria as turn-of-the-century psychiatric patients. It’s a witches’ brew of the scary, gross, and darkly humorous, featuring some of the most eye-poppingly Satanic imagery to ever appear on the silent screen."

"DREAMS REWIRED traces the desires and anxieties of today’s hyper-connected world back more than a hundred years, when telephone, film and television were new. As revolutionary then as contemporary social media is today, early electric media sparked a fervent utopianism in the public imagination – promising total communication, the annihilation of distance, an end to war. But then, too, there were fears over the erosion of privacy, security, morality. Using rare (and often unseen) archival material from nearly 200 films to articulate the present, DREAMS REWIRED reveals a history of hopes to share, and betrayals to avoid."
