BRAZIL (1985)

Synopsis:  Low-level bureaucrat Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) escapes the monotony of his day-to-day life through a recurring daydream of himself as a virtuous hero saving a beautiful damsel. Investigating a case that led to the wrongful arrest and eventual death of an innocent man instead of wanted terrorist Harry Tuttle (Robert De Niro), he meets the woman from his daydream (Kim Greist), and in trying to help her gets caught in a web of mistaken identities, mindless bureaucracy and lies.

*Full 142 minute Director's Cut of the film will be shown.

 

THE DAY OF THE BEAST (1995)

TICKETS NOW ON SALE!

 

 

Synopsis:  “If Mel Brooks had directed "The Omen", it may have come out like this.” -- Film Threat

In between his debut ACCIÓN MUTANTE and his proudly depraved PERDITA DURANGO, writer/director Álex de la Iglesia (HBO’s “30 Coins”) delivered a “classic of modern Spanish cinema” (Screen Anarchy), winning six Goya Awards including Best Director.

When a rogue priest (PAN’S LABYRINTH’s Álex Angulo) discovers the exact date The Antichrist will be born, he enlists a Death Metal record store clerk and a cheesy TV psychic for an urban spree of “gore, sacrilege and twisted humor” (San Francisco Examiner) to prevent the Apocalypse by summoning Satan himself.
