R. Kelly once asserted, “It’s the freakin’ weekend baby, I’m
about to have me some fun.”
And really, as a film fan, what’s more fun than seeing films
you hold near and dear projected once more. So every Friday, I’ll be bringing
you news and reminders of the sweetest repertory screenings across the country
to get your ass out and about. This weekend: Prom in L.A., Vincent Price and
David Bowie in NY!
Note: As Fango and myself are NYC based; these will most
often be New York and L.A-related
bits, but if you drop me a line at
with info of a screening anywhere, I’ll get it in here!
• In what makes me cringe with envy like I lost a tiara by a
vote, tonight the Silent Movie Theater (611 N Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles,
90036) celebrates senior prom with a double header of CARRIE and HELLO MARY
LOU: PROM NIGHT II, with a dance party in between!
The best night of your life gets underway at 8 p.m. with
Brian De Palma’s still-stunning adaptation of Stephen King’s tale of the
lonely, shy Carrie White and her telekinetic wrath. From 10-midnightish, DJ
Tuna gets your Taffeta all wet with sweat and punch and hopefully you’ll be
nice and thrashed for the midnight start of HELLO MARY LOU. I am immensely jealous
of L.A. Have too much fun.

PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE play at 7:30 p.m.
• Also tonight, at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens is THE SHOUT. Part of their Jerzy Skolimowski series, the film stars Alan Bates as a terrifying stranger who imposes on a couple's life together with tales of black magic and a deadly scream.
• Until next Thursday, June 30, Film Forum (209 W
Houston St) is running Alfred Hitchcock’s DIAL M FOR MURDER, in its original
double system Polaroid 3-D. Also at Film Forum, coinciding with MOMA’s “David

• Finally, tomorrow night (June 25) at 92Y Tribeca (200
Hudson St) is Michael Reeves’ incredible and brutal WITCHFINDER GENERAL, which
sees Vincent Price as evil as he ever was, and without any delicious dark
comedy in accompaniment.
