My secret world: the story of Sarah Records

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

9:00pm

Sarah Records co-founder Clare Wadd in person! In March 2015, the NME declared Sarah Records to be the second greatest indie label of all time, directly behind 4AD — and for good reason. Between 1987-1995, Sarah was possibly the most “indie” of all UK indie labels: one where the participants’ principles prevailed, and attitude and actions were just as important as the music. The label that released gems by twee-pop pioneers Heavenly, The Field Mice, Another Sunny Day, 14 Iced Bears, The Orchids, Boyracer and many more was buoyed over the years by heroics and belligerence, ephemeral-eternal-pop, fanzines and its incorruptible founders Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes. My Secret World is the very first documentary exploration of this highly influential and often misunderstood stable of incredible record releases.
Dir. Lucy Dawkins, 2014, HD presentation, 102 min.

The Five Minutes Game

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

5:00pm

It’s one of our oldest Cinefamily traditions, having lasted since our very beginnings. And it’s been damned fun, too, every time. Summer’s around the corner, and you know how we here at the theater love two things in tandem: busting out the patio grill, and The Five Minutes Game. What’s all this about a game, you ask? We’re firm believers in “Every movie is interesting for at least its first five minutes”, those fascinating moments when you’re still entering the new world a film presents you, and trying to figure out what the hell’s going on. What we’re gonna do is choose fifteen movies you’ve likely never seen before (with most of them still unavailable on DVD), line ‘em up and only show you the first five minutes of each, not counting their opening credits. After all that, you, the audience, votes on which film out of the fifteen we all then peep in its entirety. So bring something to cook on our grill and let’s get started!
