Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! - 11:59PM at Belcourt - New 35mm Print!

FASTER PUSSYCAT, KILL! KILL! is the story of a new breed of SUPERWOMEN emerging out of the ruthlessness of our times. We are introduced to three BUXOM Go-Go girls: VARLA, ROSIE, and BILLIE, wildly dancing the Watusi before the leers, jeers and lecherous come-ons of their drooling all-male audience. The violence, implicit in the girls' tease, is quickly moved out of the microcosmic bar into the outside world as they literally let go of themselves, embarking on a wild, violent, deadly journey of vengeance on all men. VARLA, the outrageously abundant KARATE MASTER leader of the pack, breaks the arms and back of one man, runs her Porsche over two others, grinds a fourth, a muscleman, against a wall and, eventually, deliberately goes down the path of her own self-destruction, dragging her two BUXOTIC cohorts along with her.


Lawrence of Arabia - 3PM at the Franklin Theatre

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure - 8pm and 10pm at Cult Fiction Underground -You should absolutely not miss seeing this. Not for a hundred million trillion billion dollars. If you *do* miss it, and you don't have a valid excuse, we're gonna send Large Marge to see you. - jack

Sound of Music - Time TBA at the Belcourt Theatre - Winner of 5 Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Sound, Editing and Score.

In Rodgers and Hammerstein's greatest collaboration, a feisty postulant named Maria (Julie Andrews) is sent to care for the unruly, motherless Von Trapp children. She soon tames them—and finds herself falling for their stern father (Christopher Plummer). Oscar-winning director Robert Wise used stunning Austrian locations to transform the popular stage musical into a cinema classic in which the hills truly seemed to come alive.
