CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:
This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time, however. Like this one:
- 5/7, San Francisco: Crime Wave (1985) at the Roxie. Crime Wave, ‘s funky comedy about a mute screenwriter attempting to write the perfect “colour crime” script, is rarely screened. Even rarer are screenings of the 2021 restored version, with an alternate ending (which this, or course, is). San Franciscans and other bay area types are highly encouraged to attend; this film deserves to become part of rep theaters’ regular cult film rotation. Also screening at the Roxie this week: Cowards Bend the Knee, or, the Blue Hands (2003) and Tales from the Winnipeg Film Group (a 2017 documentary about the Winnipeg film scene pioneered by Piaz, perfected by Guy Maddin, and continued by ) on the 7th, and Fantastic Planet [La Planète Sauvage] (1973) on the 8th and 9th.
