Alamo 100: DIRTY HARRY
Wednesday, March 5, 7 pm
1971 - Rated R.  Starring Clint Eastwood
A thinly veiled plot of the Zodiac Killer, DIRTY HARRY went where no other cop film had gone before it. It questioned the authority and morals of law enforcement in a way that hadn't been shown in American film. At the time everyone on The Left considered Harry a fascist while those on The Right praised is sense of jusitce, even if it was of the vigilante kind.  Since this is an Alamo 100 title, there will be free commemorative pins while supplies last.

2013 – Unrated, starring Nora Tschirner, Rob Knighton, Kellie Shirley
Two lost souls. One last chance. Melanie's life in a seaside town is going nowhere until she meets Ray, back in town with a shady job to do. A moment's escape becomes a chance to save themselves, and each other. Everyone's Going To Die is a modern British story about coming home, getting by and the redemptive power of feeling you're not alone. A story where porn hotlines rub shoulders with sexy beavers on rollerskates; where the past is laid to rest, two lives are changed and nobody, finally, is going to die.  This film is part of Manhattan Short's FEATURE FILM PROJECT.  Response from the audience at the Alamo will help determine the future distribution of this film in the U.S.  This is a FILM CLUB 3.0 event.  Click HERE to join Film Club and help bring independent, foreign, documentary and classic film to Winchester.

Saturday, March 15, 9 pm
2014 – Rated R.  Starring Lamb of God, Larry Mazer
Director Don Argott will join us for a live intro and Q&A with this screening! 
AS THE PALACES BURN is a feature-length documentary that originally sought to follow the band and their fans throughout the world, to demonstrate how music ties us together when we can't find any other common bond. However, during the filming process in 2012, the story abruptly took a dramatic turn, bringing the band into a Kafkaesque nightmare, when lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested on charges of manslaughter, blamed for the death of one of their young fans in the Czech Republic. What followed was a heart-wrenching courtroom drama that left fans, friends, and curious onlookers around the world on the edge of their seats.

Big Screen Classics: NORTH BY NORTHWEST
Wednesday, March 19, 6:45 pm
1959 – Unrated.  Starring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason
Of all the masterful works of suspense created over the course of his career, NORTH BY NORTHWEST is truly the quintessential Alfred Hitchcock movie. If PSYCHO made the world aware of how frightening showers can be, this film introduced us to an improbably terrifying crop duster.  The suspense is punctuated by acutely funny jabs throughout, elevating this mistaken identity, innocent-man-on-the-run tale to a level of total magic.

Anime at the Alamo: PSYCHO-PASS
Monday, March 31, 9 pm
FREE TICKETS at the box office
Welcome to a world where just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty. Bad intentions can no longer be hidden, and the police know exactly which tainted minds are about to cross over to the wrong side of the law.  The great equalizer in the war on thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the risk that a citizen will turn criminal. Cops work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, Inspectors stop their partners from going rogue, and the all-powerful Sibyl System keeps a watchful eye on us all. Society is paralyzed by its deepest, darkest desires, and trial by jury has been replaced by the wrath of the Dominator. Welcome to the future. How guilty are you? Per our agreement with FUNimation, we will be screening the English dubbed version.
