Our new feature film this week is Mistress America. The life of a lonely college freshman (Lola Kirke) is turned upside down by her impetuous, adventurous soon-to-be stepsister (Greta Gerwig). Tonight is your last chance to see The End of the Tour at 7:30.

Following our feature tomorrow night, stay for special Cult Cinema screening of Akira. It is a story of a secret military project that endangers Neo-Tokyo when it turns a biker gang member into a rampaging psionic psychopath that only two kids and a group of psionics can stop. Akira is an astonishingly influential film, easily as much so as cinema’s touchstones Citizen Kane and Pulp Fiction. Its impact is made more difficult to judge, though, given that it was made more than sixteen years ago, and didn’t make an initial impact outside of Japan. Oddly, this made its influence even more profound, benefiting from ‘word of mouth’ and the influx of cheap VHS at the end of the Eighties. Don’t miss it!

Tickets are going really fast for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, sponsored by Merric La Riviere and LGBTea Dances. The show is Saturday, Oct 17 at 9:30PM. Tickets can be purchased online here.
