THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

GRISLY, GHASTLY, GHOULISH ANIMATED HORROR
DIRECTOR: VARIOUS
VARIOUS

LAIKA Brand Manager Mark Shapiro travels the globe visiting animation festivals, on the lookout for new content and representing the company’s great work to fans worldwide. Culled from visits to Montreal, Annecy, Hiroshima, Clermont-Ferrand, Sundance, and more, this handpicked program of macabre and shocking short films comes from the singularly twisted minds of animators unafraid to bring their visions to life. Not a program for the young or squeamish, the selections include: GRACKLE BUMPER, Danny Madden (US); THE TWIN GIRLS OF SUNSET STREET, Anna Solanas, Marc Riba (Spain); CHAINSAW MAID, Takena Nagao (Japan); PANDY, Mateus Vizar (Czech Republic); SUPERVENUS, Frédéric Doazan (France); DANNY BOY, Marek Skrobecki (Poland); CANIS, Marc Riba, Anna Solanas (Spain); CRAZY LITTLE THING, ONAHANA (JAPAN); TIMBER, Nils Hediger, VIVIENNE MEDRANO (US); DINNER FOR FEW, Athanassios Vakalis (Greece/US); TEETH, Tom Brown (US). Adult Audience. (90 min.)

I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE
DIRECTOR: JACQUES TOURNEUR
US, 1943

When a young nurse arrives on a mysterious island, she is thrust into states of both intrigue and terror, forced to confront a sense of “other” like none she has ever experienced. Having practically built the template for psychological horror with their 1942 collaboration on CAT PEOPLE, B-movie impresario Val Lewton (THE BODY SNATCHER) and director Jacques Tourneur (OUT OF THE PAST) reconvened to hatch this equally impressive tale of the supernatural, set against a dramatically lit, studio back lot recreation of the West Indies. “I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE is a small masterpiece—perhaps the most delicate poetic fantasy in the American cinema.”—Robin Wood, “The Shadow Worlds of Jacques Tourneur.” (69 min.)

Single feature pricing on Friday night. Double feature ($3 extra) on Saturday night, paired with NORWAY.

NORWAY
DIRECTOR: YANNIS VESLEMES
GREECE, 2014

Exuding the irreproachable cool of the new school of Greek filmmakers, Yannis Veslemes’ retro vampire flick depicts the afterlife of Zano, an undead denizen of 1980s Athens, Greece. Dressed to the nines in outdated lounge lizard attire, Zano slinks through the bars and alleys of the Greek metropolis looking for the love of a “warm” girl. All the while, he must keep in constant motion, dancing to sullen club beats, to keep his heart from stopping. “The bloodsucking creatures have always been an emblem of societal parasitism – and in this stylised steampunk creation, Zano the vampire lives a life of excessive hedonism. Veslemes’s disco-beat debut is thinly-veiled critique of those who have carelessly played with the country’s future.”—Peter Yeung, Dazed. (73 min.)
