“CHEERLEADiNG CHAOS” Double Bill
7:00pm – BRiNG IT ON (2000) – 17th Anniversary 35mm screening!
Written by Jessica Bendinger; Directed by Peyton Reed
w/ Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Jesse Bradford, Eliza Dushku & Natina Reed (R.I.P.)
Teen heartthrobs Kirsten Dunst and Gabrielle Union go head to head in this politically-charged, racially-explosive, queer-positive, teen-angst, cheerleading-competition film! Who would have guessed that the debut feature by Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) would not only become a celebrated Broadway musical but has now earned the right to be ranked alongside CLUELESS (1995) and MEAN GiRLS (2004) as one of the eras defining coming-of-age flicks? Bust out your toothbrushes, pom poms and spirit fingers and bring your favorite naysayer friends to celebrate a 35mm screening of this genuinely brilliant teen classic. Preceded by trailers of other Y2K teen classics. 35mm print courtesy of Universal. Rated PG-13. 98min
9:00pm – REVENGE OF THE CHEERLEADERS (1976) – 40th Anniversary 35mm screening!
(SPECiAL GUESTS TBA!)
Written by Nathaniel Dorsky (Legendary Experimental Filmmaker!)
Directed by Richard Lerner
This unstoppably hilarious T&A cheerleading-competition classic not only sports some of the weirdest and wackiest sequences in the history of 1970s exploitation cinema, it will sincerely stun you at how realistic and even revolutionary it deals with many of its high school dilemmas. With Bay Area experimental filmmaker Nathaniel Dorsky jam-packing the screenplay with bubble bath orgies, drug induced food fights, full-frontal nudity and David Hasselhoff’s bare-ass debut, this major influence on Quentin Tarantino’s DEATH PROOF is an evening you can not afford to skip. Original 35mm grindhouse print from UNCSA! Rated R. 88 minutes.
