On Saturday, June 3, at 9pm, local cult film maven, Jessica Lauren, hosts The Dark Side of the Rainbow aka The Dark Side of Oz. Haven’t heard of this mash up? Supposedly, if you play Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon as soundtrack to The Wizard of Oz, it almost seems the band planned the entire 1973 album around the 1939 movie. Jessica will even tell you where the trippy synchronicities happen! See it and you’ll believe it, too.

Friday, June 2, at 5pm: Dr. Strangelove. Stanley Kubrick’s blackest of black comedies, hosted by local film connoisseur Edward Verona. An insane general triggers a path to nuclear holocaust that a war room full of politicians and generals frantically try to stop—or enjoy. The Chicago Reader raves, “Kubrick’s brilliant Cold War satire remains as funny and razor-sharp today as it was in 1964.” It’s Peter Sellers’ tour-de-force!

Wednesday, June 7, at 5pm: I Am Not Your Negro. Samuel L. Jackson narrates this film based on an unfinished James Baldwin manuscript, voicing the late author’s words about his fallen friends Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and their part in the civil rights movement. New York Magazine calls it, “a vitally important piece of film-making that will move you, provoke you, and educate you.” Lively discussion to follow!

Friday, June 9, at 5pm: 2001 A Space Odyssey. Another Kubrick masterpiece, who can forget the film transition from primitive man’s rage to the spinning space station? The Chicago Reader calls it, “a masterpiece for the ages, unfolding a compelling and brilliant tale while also challenging audiences every single time.” You’ll never hear “The Blue Danube” in the same way again!
