Dude Bro Party Massacre III

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

10:00pm

Break out the pastel polos, puka shells and beer bongs — it’s time for some pure, uncut bro on bro horror cinema. Thankfully recorded off of late night television before President Ronald Reagan could ban it, Dude Bro Party Massacre III is a satirical take on the gory and sexually charged ’80s slashers genre, refreshingly exploiting soft male bodies via many a situation we’ve become accustomed to as exclusively feminine.

Rob Neighbors discusses and signs Palm Avenue

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd, Austin, CA 90069

7:00pm

Every year thousands of naive young women arrive in Los Angeles, full of ambition and dreams of stardom. Few realize that there is a steep price of admission into the club that involves flesh, blood, and large chunks of soul. Ashley Duncan flees her small Kansas hometown and family farm to pursue the Hollywood dream. She takes a crash course on how to succeed in Tinseltown, trading on her looks and sexuality. An agent she meets sums it up this way, "I'll be honest with you, Ashley. You have the look that we're looking for. You definitely have the look, but a lot of girls have that. A lot of girls have talent. The question is, do you have everything else it takes? Do you have the temperament, the guile, the cajones, to do what it takes?" Ashley decides early on, she will do whatever is necessary. Things get more complicated when Ashley's high school sweetheart, Brady, arrives in LA, in a desperate attempt to win her back. Ashley and Brady don't realize it, but they are now guests of that infamous California hotel, where you can check out, but you can never leave.

Seven Weeks - with Director Nobuhiko Obayashi in person!

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

8:00pm

“GUERNICA IN MOVING IMAGES” is the description Nobuhiko Obayashi, best known to Western audiences as the director of wild cult-horror classic Hausu, has assigned his new film. Sprawling and ambitious, Seven Weeks takes the death of the Suzuki family patriarch as its narrative origin. The family gathers in Hokkaido to mourn, in keeping with the Buddhist tradition of holding memorials every seven days for 49 days, a ritual out of which an epic web of family history and Japanese history is spun. By turns political and poetic, Seven Weeks flits between time periods and locales, with surreal sequences and cacophonic dialogue echoing the fantasy and surrealism for which Obayashi is known. Labyrinthine in both content and form, Seven Weeks spans huge swaths of time and space, all the while haunted by the specter of WWII. Do not miss this saga of epic proportions!

Dir. Nobuhiko Obayashi, 2014, 171 min.
