Rififi is a 1955 French crime film adaptation of Auguste Le Breton’s novel of the same name. Directed by American blacklisted filmmaker Jules Dassin, the film stars Jean Servais as the aging gangster Tony “le Stéphanois”, Carl Möhner as Jo “le Suédois”, Robert Manuel as Mario Farrati, and Jules Dassin as César “le Milanais”. The foursome band together to commit an almost impossible theft, the burglary of an exclusive jewelry shop in the Rue de la Paix. The centerpiece of the film is an intricate half-hour heist scene depicting the crime in detail, shot in near silence, without dialogue or music. The fictional burglary has been mimicked by criminals in actual crimes around the world.
Out Of The Blue (1980)
Directed & Starring Dennis Hopper
Dennis Hopper’s film ‘Out of the Blue’ is a masterpiece of alienation
8/19 – 7pm, 9pm

8/21 – 7:30pm
8/25 – 7pm, 9pm
Dennis Hopper directed and stars in “Out of the Blue” — the spiritual sequel to his own “Easy Rider”, chronicling the collapse of sixties idealism into the nihilistic haze of the 1980s. Don Barnes (Hopper) is a truck driver in prison for drunkenly smashing his rig into a school bus. Linda Manz (“Days of Heaven”) plays CeBe, his daughter, a young teen rebel and outsider obsessed with Elvis and the Sex Pistols. Her mother Kathy, (Sharon Farrell) waitresses, shoots up drugs and takes refuge in the arms of other men, including her husband’s best friend, Charlie (Don Gordon). CeBe runs away to Vancouver’s punk scene and ends up on juvenile probation under the care of well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Brean (Raymond Burr). After Don’s release, the family struggles to re-connect and start over before the revelation of dark secrets leads to a harrowing conclusion.
Invasion Of The Bee Girls (1973)
August 20th – 10:30pm
Jump Cut Roadshow: so bad they’re good films hosted by our very own Wayne Massey!
Next up: another campy ‘70s bee movie cheese fest, Invasion of the Bee Girls!
Something bzzz-are is happening in the small town of Peckham, California – men are dropping like flies; dying from “exhaustion.” Led by sexy scientist Dr. Susan Harris (Anitra Ford) at the Brandt Research Laboratory, a colony of bees has infiltrated the minds and bodies of alluring women and is using them to conquer the men. It’s up to government agent Neil Agar (William Smith) to investigate the mysterious deaths, the strange force taking over the women of Peckham, and save mankind!
If you like trash movies and ravishingly bee-autiful women, you’ll want to see this sexy, ‘70s exploitation “sci fi” flick. Even critics such as Leonard Maltin and Roger Ebert have given this one their seal of approval!

Fire of Love (2022)
August 26th – September 1st
Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a 1991 volcanic explosion, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world. Director Sara Dosa and the filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. FIRE OF LOVE tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love.

Equal parts farmer, winemaker, and artist, they stay true to their ideals of creating exceptional wines made through innovative sustainable and regenerative farming and without chemical additives. Eschewing the industrial agricultural practices of the corporate wine industry — our winemakers are healing the very environment they are surviving, i.e., a changing climate marked by rising temperatures, shorter growing seasons, and more frequent and virulent wildfires.
