MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS presents
A very special one-night-only screening of two classic 1990s road films, both shown in glorious 35mm!
“Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” Double Bill
7:15PM – BEAViS AND BUTT-HEAD DO AMERiCA (1996)
Script & Directed by Mike Judge
Satire is often misunderstood or even maligned by serious critics and Mike Judge’s debut feature is one of those films. Following these two mumbling malcontents across the raunchy back roads of un-entitled America, Beavis and Butt-head might truly have a profound purpose on this unstoppably spiraling world. And like all great art, that purpose is up to you to uncover. MiDNiTES FOR MANiACS is proud to present the Bay Area’s first 35mm screening in more than 20 years. Come on out to the cranked up 1990s jams and low brow humor that you know you are in desperate need of. Rated PG-13. 81min. Original 35mm print courtesy of Paramount.
9:00PM – NATURAL BORN KILLERS (1994) Story by Quentin Tarantino; Directed by Oliver Stone w/ Juliette Lewis, Woody Harrelson, Robert Downey Jr., & Tommy Lee Jones
This prophetic and psychotic clusterfuck has more psychedelic energy in its first 10 minutes then most action packed franchises! Juliette Lewis and Woody Harrelson give career defining performances as modern day anti-heroes Mickey and Mallory Knox. Sporting one of the sexiest, white-trash couples this side of Kathryn Bigelow’s NEAR DARK (1987) and David Lynch’s WILD AT HEART (1991), Stone’s hyper-kinetic experimental style utilizes pretty much every kind of camera and camera technique known to cinema. While igniting extreme controversy upon its release in 1994, it’s time to celebrate this ultra violent flick on its 23rd Anniversary as one of the most jaw dropping and important time-capsules of the decade. Rated (Hard) R. Don’t miss this 35mm screening print courtesy of Warner Brothers. 118min. Preceded by trailers for upcoming M4M screenings.
