  • Cinema Tuesdays: The Thin Man

    At 80 years old, The Thin Man is a lot like my Nana: elegant, witty and very appreciative of a good martini. And like Nana, The Thin Man is delightful to this day. Most of this is due to the unparalleled chemistry between William Powell and Myrna Loy, who play Nick and Nora Charles; he, a San Francisco detective who “retired” after marrying; she, a wealthy socialite who matches her man in smarts and in drink. What mystery are they solving? Doesn’t matter. The fun’s in watching Nick and Nora trade gibes like they were Wimbledon opponents and then team up to turn their verbal acuity on some unsuspecting chump.

  • Bangerz & Sass Sing-Along
    Bangerz & Sass Sing-Along 7/23 7:00PM
     

    What the heck is Bangerz & Sass? Well for starters, after going to Miley's Bangerz tour this year we immediately knew we wanted to have a special night of Miley Cyrus amazing at the Alamo. But as great as she is, we knew that we wouldn't be satisfied if we only played her hits and didn't hear from any of the other leading pop princesses of today. So we went through all of our Katy Perry collection and fell in love with everything there. Then we wanted to hear some Taylor Swift, because we were starting to feel 22 and we felt like she belonged with us. Then that led us to some Ellie Goulding, and then some Ariana Grande, and eventually we were even rocking out to the Chainsmokers' #SELFIE and wondering why the DJ was playing "Summertime Sadness" when it wasn't even the summer. Our DJs are taking all of that and mixing it together into the hottest party of July, featuring plenty of Katy Perry's "Fireworks," a total "Party in the USA," and soooo much more. We're going to start the night with a Twerk Off on stage, and then it's just going to get more awesome from there. Be a Teenage Dream and join us!

  • This Is Spinal Tap
    This Is Spinal Tap 7/23 7:15PM
     

    The comedic and musical trio of Harry Shearer, Michael McKean, and Christopher Guest (who all star and wrote the script) have amazing chemistry together. This helps sell the film’s faux documentary style as real, which then makes all the absurdity that much more entertaining. Focusing on the easy targets of musician’s ego, stupidity and sensitivity these three use the gamut of their comedy skill to craft what feel like unbelievably real characters. You laugh at them, but in a strange way you kind of care about them, too.

  • Say Anything
    Say Anything 7/27 7:00PM
     

    In the land of ‘80s crushes, amidst the Kirk Camerons and the Jake Ryans, one man stands alone. And that man (not a guy, a man!) is Lloyd Dobler. Sure, he might not have the preppy looks of Andrew McCarthy or the real genius of Val Kilmer, but Lloyd Dobler is special. He wears a trench coat! He drives a blue Chevy Malibu! He kickboxes, which everyone knows is the sport of the future! He's great with kids! He watches Cocoon with old people, for goodness sake! And, as if all of those amazing qualities weren’t enough, here's the kicker (literally!): he will always, without fail, protect you from broken glass on the street. In other words, Lloyd Dobler is perfect, and for Girlie Night, we'll give him the celebration he deserves. Join me for a night of love, heartache and, of course, songs about Joe. Keys will be collected, and if you've got a boom box lying around, well... you know what to do.

  • Velvet Goldmine
    Velvet Goldmine 7/28 7:00PM
     

    Witness the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust... er, sort of. In director Todd Haynes's ode to the glam era, Christian Bale plays Arthur Stuart, a Brit reporter in 1984 New York begrudgingly tasked by his editor to do a "Where are they Now" piece on Brian Slade, a glittery, androgynous Bowie-esque glam superstar. Slade dominated the charts in 1974, only to mysteriously disappear from the limelight completely after staging his own on-stage "assassination." Through flashbacks to his own turbulent adolescent days as a glam fanboy and interviews with those who knew Slade, Arthur pieces together some of the mystery of who Slade was and what he might be up to now. Much like his more critically and commercially successful homage to Dylan, 2007's I'm Not There, Haynes masterfully blurs fact and legend, people and personas, into one fantastic cinematic mash. Sure, the history is dubious (Bowie certainly thought so and sadly refused to let his music be used), but that's totally beside the point: his vision of the era is so completely captivating it's bound to leave a little glitter on your collar

Focusing on the easy targets of musician’s ego, stupidity and sensitivity these three use the gamut of their comedy skill to craft what feel like unbelievably real characters. You laugh at them, but in a strange way you kind of care about them, too. And that tone, which director Rob Reiner and his three music-teers employ here, makes Spinal Tap so special. Sure the mini Stonehenge and dying drummer gags are great (“he died in a bizarre gardening accident”) and nothing really beats Guest’s delivery in almost every scene, but it’s the unexpected heart that sets the film apart.

  • Dirty Dancing Quote-Along
    Dirty Dancing Quote-Along 7/29 7:15PM
     

    Baby and Johnny paved the way for future silver screen amalgamations of love on the dance floor; in other words, without Dirty Dancing, there would be no Step Up franchise (a horrifying thought, I know).  With such a monumental legacy, Dirty Dancing deserves our utmost respect, as well as a high amount of romantic mega-sighs. Obviously, there's no better place to celebrate it than Girlie Night, where we're unleashing the brand new quote-along (and sing-along! and dance-along!) version of the film. We've partnered with the Action Pack to take this film to the next level, which means your favorite lines and songs will be subtitled, and you'll receive interactive props, like maracas for the mambo and Patrick Swayze fans so you can cool yourself down from his hotness.

  • Time of the Apes
    Time of the Apes 7/30 10:00PM
     

    Science has never met fiction like this. In 1974, Japan's Tsuburaya Productions (Ultraman) released twenty-six episodes of a TV show called Saru No Gundan. Much like the Turkish "interpretations" of movies like Rambo and Jaws, Saru No Gundan re-imagined an American blockbuster as something that was more digestible for its native country's culture. In this case, it was Planet Of The Apes. Saru No Gundan told the coherent story of a time-traveling family who were trapped in a future that was ruled by apes. Fair enough. In 1987, TV producer Sandy Frank discovered Saru No Gundan and said, "Boy, this is great! But it would be even better if I cut all twenty-six episodes into one movie, dubbed the whole thing in my bathroom, and called it Time of the Apes!!" And so he did. Time of the Apes is an illogical black hole of madness, jam-packed with psychedelic visuals, deranged dubbing, and ape soldiers who drive rainbow-colored hippie vans. The movie reeks of desperation, haste, and recklessness. It has UFOs and a child-ape named "Pepe" who wears corduroys. We're not saying that Time of the Apes is better than Planet of the Apes. But it probably is.
