Happy Friday everyone! I hope you guys can make it out to the movies this weekend, because there are some really cool things happening in the next couple of days. We're kicking off the weekend with Multiple Maniacs (introduced by John Waters himself!!), but if you didn't get a ticket to the sold out show, the Castro is pairing Halloween with It Follows tonight. They are showing cool double features all weekend, really. The New Parkway is screening The Road Warrior for their cult night, and the Roxie is holding a benefit to help save The Stud, whose rent has tripled, forcing its doors to close. Let's make sure our beloved theatres don't face the same fate and support them this weekend!

Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World
Playing all Weekend (1hr 38min)
"In Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, Oscar-nominated documentarian Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Encounters at the End of the World, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches. He deftly explores the pitfalls, achievements and possibilities of the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations (which include ace hacker Kevin Mitnick and Tesla/SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk) that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works—from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships. Herzog’s endlessly inquisitive eye finds beauty, mystery and staggering potential in this latest unexplored wilderness."
