The Secret Cinema will make a long awaited return to the Colonial Theatre — for the first time in over ten years! — to screen a unique program culled from the Secret Cinema’s private film archive, The Secret Secret Cinema. Like most Secret Cinema programs, The Secret Secret Cinema strives to expose forgotten delights from the often-overlooked annals of motion picture ephemera, films which would be difficult to experience in any other way.
The program of forgotten advertising films, theatrical short subjects, clips and trailers will include LA DANSE A GO GO, a 1964 short about twisting discotheque go-go dancers; A TOUCH OF MAGIC, a surreal Technicolor musical promoting Populuxe cars and kitchens; MEXICAN RHYTHM, a 1953 one-reeler starring “Mexico’s Jazz King” Luis Arcaraz; network TV promos; ads for long-gone local businesses; and original previews for such offbeat classics as GROUPIES, HELLS ANGELS ’69, BUMMER, MONDO MOD…and much more!
While we normally are proud to announce that “All Secret Cinema presentations are projected in 16mm film on a giant screen,” this time we are even prouder to announce that the entirety of The Secret Secret Cinema program will be projected in even higher-quality 35mm film (still the best method for theatrical film presentation from 1895 through the present!), on an even gianter screen than usual.
