Movie Loft is not letting the Russia story go. We could also use some goofy chuckles and rock 'n' roll. To these ends, Movie Loft presents 'Leningrad Cowboys Go America', April 13th at Shadowbox Studio.

From 1989, the first feature-length tale of these Siberian rockers from Finnish director
Aki Kaurismäki. A rollicking road movie about an imaginary band that became a movie that became an actual band. Long distance information: get me Orimattila, Finland!

Musical selections for the night will be the wildest and wooliest rockers we can unearth.

Tunes will commence at 7, along with the grilling of many hot dogs. Flick at 8,more rockin' afterwards.

FREE admission, donations appreciated. BYO beverage or sample what's on hand.

Wed April 26 – 7:30 pm
Directors for a Dangerous Time
Pasolini’s Salò
Stacks Image 8837
For the final installment of our first "Directors for a Dangerous Time" series, we present Salò, Pier Paolo Pasolini’s last movie before his murder. Salò, is his most powerful and disturbing work, and has become one of the most controversial movies ever made.

The film re-imagines Marquis de Sade’s eighteenth-century novel "The 120 Days of Sodom," setting it in Northern Italy in 1944, in what is left of the crumbling Fascist regime.
Salò is not only a reminder of the horrors of fascist regimes (in Italy and elsewhere), but it is also an unmitigated analysis of human cruelty, a portrait of the corruption of power, and a condemnation of consumer capitalism.

This is a movie made to upset, disgust, and shock, and, in so doing, to educate its audience. Therefore, due to the adult themes, violent images, and graphic content, the film is recommended for mature audiences only, and viewers sensitive to this type of content may want to skip this event.

Free admission & popcorn, BYO beverage or sample what's on hand.
