992 Valencia St.
Open sesame! Welcome to a cinematic den where fantasy—yea, delirium—reign! Doug Katelus conjures dark angels through the Optigan, transporting us to the ultra-rare Fairytale World of Alexander Ptushko, a child’s-eye survey of this Russian film wizard’s phantasmagoric special effects. ALSO: Andres Garcia Franco’s haunting The Invention, a marvelous descent into an exotic Mexican demimonde. AND Drew Heitzler’s Night Tide (for Sailors, Mermaids, Mystics), a riff on the 1963 Curtis Harrington film that uses Venice Beach as a backdrop for a surreal dreamscape of Pynchonesque paranoia and comedic horror. PLUS Damon Packard, Busby Berkeley, Houdini, and hallucinatory shorts. Free Wine, Hookah in the house *$6.66.
