Screenings in the Bay (Monday to Friday)

Happy Monday yet again movie lovers! And we're on our way to another eventful week (and month). Following the lineup for this week's screenings is a bit of an early heads up, so I suggest you don't put those off. They are very likely to sell out.

Terror Tuesday
Tuesday 1st @ 10:45pm (1hr 28min)
Thriller/ Horror (Google)
"Fraternity pledges (Jason Lively, Steve Marshall) pull a prank with a frozen body and let sluglike creatures loose on campus."

Weird Wednesday
Wednesday 2nd @ 10pm (1hr 46min)
Indie/ Horror (Google)
"During the Vietnam War, a squad of National Guardsmen -- including Hardin (Powers Boothe), a no-nonsense Texan; Reece (Fred Ward), a hunter; and Spencer (Keith Carradine), a sensible private -- take part in a military training exercise in the swamps of Louisiana. After attempting to steal several canoes and firing blanks at a Cajun, the group members find themselves being hunted by the locals. Scared and unfamiliar with the territory, the men must scramble to escape."

Smut without the Smut
Thursday 3rd @ 9:30pm (1hr 10min)
"Beneath the dumpsters of America, a netherworld of undiscovered hardcore genre filmmaking lurks in the gutters. But what if these movies were less about the sex and more about the stuff that happens inbetween? Smut Without Smut is hardcore genre movies with the sex removed. In other words, the parameters of reality will never be the same again. Join us for a triple feature of anti-erogenous super-heroic adventures that a Decidedly Cool comic book company never wanted you to see. WATCH! Ms. Magnificent save Clark Click from over-sexed doom! SEE! Splatman thwart the perverted plans of the Pornguin! OBSERVE! Bat P***y crossing a highway on her Bouncy Ball! We cannot be held responsible for any lasting trauma."

I Wake Up Dreaming Presents a Pre-Code Triple Feature

Drama/ Musical/ Romance (IMDB)
"A young unwed mother, unable to support her illegitimate baby, decides to give the child up for adoption in order to pursue a career as a nightclub torch singer. Her progress is thwarted as she quickly succumbs to a life of heavy drinking and even heavier sexual adventure!"

Crime/ Drama/ Romance (IMDB) 
"Mary (Joan Blondell), Vivian (Ann Dvorak) and Ruth (Bette Davis) are old friends who do some catching up after a chance meeting. Of the three women, Vivian, who married successful lawyer Robert (Warren William), seems to have the most glamourous life. Vivian really isn't satisfied, though, and she soon deserts Robert and her son for Mike (Lyle Talbot), a mobster. Before long, Vivian is hooked on drugs, and Mike needs cash -- so the gangster decides to kidnap Vivian's own son for ransom."

The Cheat (1931)
Wednesday 2nd @ 9:30pm (1hr 14min)
Drama (IMDB)
"The beautiful but hopelessly spoiled wife of a wealthy businessman becomes ensnared in a vicious circle of deception and debauchery when her uncontrollable gambling addiction makes her the vulnerable target of a sadistic, sex-obsessed madman! Will the love of her man save her from an ignominious doom? Not necessarily: this is Pre-Code America!"
