TONITE(3/27) 2 outside the box film events!


Occupying the very farthest opposite ends of the spectrum of film art, tonight’s programs @ the Brattle and Somerville theaters are both sure to entertain!

TRASH NIGHT 3 REDUX: RUNAWAY with Tom Selleck and Turd from KISS @ Somerville Theater

PG-13| 99 min | Action | Crime | Sci-Fi | 14 December 1984 (USA)

In the near future, a police officer specializes in malfunctioning robots. When a robot turns out to have been programmed to kill, he begins to uncover a homicidal plot to create killer robots… and his son becomes a target.

Trash night starts at 8, but there will probably be some weird garbage on before that, like at 7:30. Limited to 31 seats, but we probably won’t hit that. But please let someone know if you’re coming anyway! Invite someone if you think they want to come or I missed them! I don’t really know how Facebook works. You can bring booze in as long as it’s not in glass. Campsite rules apply.

After this one, Trash Night will be the third Tuesday of the month until at least August!


Balagan presents…Aberration of Light: Dark Chamber Disclosure by Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder, Projection performance with artists in attendance for a post-screening Q&A @ Brattle Theater

Even though the often announced death of cinema may well be an overstatement, film seems irrevocably doomed. Nevertheless, or because of that reason precisely, a number of artists and filmmakers continue to stubbornly hang on to the film medium, as an inexhaustible source for magic and wonder. With their groundbreaking excursions into the realm of so-called “expanded cinema” Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder have emerged as two of the most inspired and inventive film acolytes of their generation. Since their first meeting in 2000 they have been producing numerous installations and performances that make full use of the optical and mechanical qualities of film projection. Using 16mm and 35mm projectors, celluloid strips, deviating lenses and manual interventions they create elusive and hypnotic light sculptures, which transform the projection room into a sensual three dimensional experience.
