Slow West – June 12
First of all: Slow West is an “action-western-thriller” film starring Michael Fassbender drawing rave reviews and has been named Dramatic Winner at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Beyond that, the film is directed by John Maclean, which, you know, Die Hard.
Can’t Stand Losing You: Surviving the Police – June 12
This music documentary follows (guess who?) the Police, based on the memoir One Train Later by guitarist Andy Summers. The doc follows the rise and eventual break up of the band, featuring photos and stories from band members as they prepare for their 2007 Reunion Tour.
The Visitor – One-time midnight screening – June 12
I can’t do any better than this provided plot description for 1979’s horror sci-fi The Visitor, which really needs to be seen to be believed: “In this unforgettable assault on reality, legendary Hollywood director/actor John Huston (The Maltese Falcon; Treasure Of The Sierra Madre) stars as an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic eight-year-old girl, and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.”
Yeah, so this is one in a million. Plays once at midnight, June 12.
