VAMPIRE BRUNCH - every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month

Sunday, January 18th, this screening will feature a special in-theater performance by Ghosts of Glaciers before the film beginning at 11am (film starts at 11:30am).

In Kathryn Bigelow's tale of vampires in the American Southwest, the creatures of the night aren't elegant, cloaked aristocrats. They're a gun-toting gang that dresses and acts like a motorcycle gang. Caleb (Adrian Pasdar), a restless young man from a small farm town, meets an alluring drifter named Mae (Jenny Wright). She reveals herself to be a vampire, who "turns" Caleb into one of her kind rather than kill him. But the rest of her "family" is slow to accept the newcomer. The ancient leader, Jesse (Lance Henriksen), and his psychotic henchman Severen (Bill Paxton) lay down the law; Caleb has to carry his own weight or die. However, he can't bring himself to kill. When the vampires threaten Caleb's real family, he's forced to choose between life and death.

But what I really want to talk about is how we’re partnering with the “Pedaling 4 Parkinsons” charity on the 28th to benefit research into Parkinson’s disease, and how Michael J. Fox has agreed to tape an introduction for us to precede it.

2015 is shaping up to be a triumphal parade of my own childhood.  Unearthing milestones like my junior-high screening of Road Warrior, my family visit as a tiny kid to Disneyland, the comics I stayed up reading with a flashlight under the covers long after lights out, the first movie I ever saw in a theater: Star Wars.
