Summer Fun 2014





El Topo

One of the first midnight cult movies, Jodorowsky's El Topo created a mystical allure that in turn inspired fervent admirers.

Criterion Presents: Paris, Texas

After an absence of several years, a man tries to recover his relationship with his absent wife and son. The roundabout screenplay by Sam Shepard and adapted by Kit Carson, the dreamy cinematography by Robby Müller, and the desiccated performances of the living dead all leave their memorable residue.

8:30PM, Violet Crown Cinema, 434 W. Second
