Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday)

Happy Friday guys! This weekend has a lot of familiar titles showing in the bay area, but at different locations, which might make it easier for some of you. There are two major events finally happening this weekend, and luckily they're not conflicting so we can go to both! Read on to find out what they are.

Sunday 20th @ 1pm (9hrs)
Mystery Exploitation Marathon
"The legendary American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) is home to an untold abundance of ultra-rare 35mm film prints so imbued with raw, pulsating wildness that only certified professionals are allowed to even think about them. Now, five of the world's bravest film programmers will gather together for one night only to unleash some white-hot exploitation thunder in the rampaging five-movie marathon known as AGFA CINEMAPOCALYPSE! Each title will be a rare and unseen wonder from AGFA's top secret subterranean 35mm bunker. From animated hallucinatory childhood trauma to cinema vérité erotica, from bloodthirsty shoestring hicksploitation to extraterrestrial goreblasts, each movie will be a railroad spike through the limp heart of modern cinema. Join us in shattering the wall between you and THE BEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE."
