Dear Rabbit fans! this week our screening room turns to German New Wave visionary director Werner Herzog and his controversial film 'Fitzcarraldo' (1982). Inspired by true events, Herzog showcases the follies of movie making by accomplishing this monumental production without using special effects. The story follows the journey of an opera-loving madman (played by Klaus Kinski) who is determined to drag a boat over a mountain in the middle of the Amazon jungle.
Hope you can make it. Bring all your friends! Rabbit will be waiting with couches and booze. It's FREE and (still) BYOB!
Dear Rabbit fans, this week we are entering the highly stylized and colorful world of Jacques Demy's acclaimed musical 'Les Demoiselles de Rochefort'. This 1967 old Hollywood inspired musically charged film by French New Wave era filmmaker (and husband of Agnes Varda) stars Catherine Deneuve, her late sister Francoise Dorleac (who was killed in a car accident shortly after filming), and Gene Kelly's classic dance moves.
Come take over our couches for this delightful act on the big screen. It's FREE and BYOB! opens at 8pm (movie starts around 8:30pm)
Dear Rabbit fans, this week we are continuing our musical journey towards India with the magnificent work of Satyajit Ray: 'Jalsaghar' or also known as 'The Music Room'. One of the best from the Bengali multi award-winning filmmaker, Jalsaghar (1958) is a period movie which focuses on the decline of a semi-feodal aristocrat in Bengal (who is obsessed with the art of music) and showcases some of the best acts of Hindustani classical vocal and instrumental music, as well as classical dance.
Hope you can make it to see this truly moving film.
This is a FREE event! We now serve beers and wine!
Dear Rabbit fans, this week we are screening the melodramatic soviet musical 'Circus', one of the many musicals produced under the propagandist Stalin cinema era - which was meant to alleviate the hardship of soviet life under his power - directed by Grigori Aleksandrov. Made in 1936, this film has become a Russian classic starring the beloved actress/singer Lyubov Orlova (equivalent to Marlene Dietrich in Russia).
Hope you can make it for this cinematic gem!
It's FREE and we now serve beers and wine at our screenings (but to BYOB is still welcomed)
