RiverRun & a/perture cinema introduce Cineclub — where all the cool films hang out
For those of you who get RiverRun cabin fever riding out the eleven months between festivals each year (and you know who you are), we’ve got just the antidote for you. We’re thrilled to announce that RiverRun’s programming team, in collaboration with our partners in crime across the hall at a/perture cinema, will be rolling out a new screening series called Cineclub beginning Monday, November 8th! Cineclub will give us the opportunity to showcase outstanding independent films year-round and provide an exclusive venue for films we love that somehow fell through the cracks—sometimes they’re released too early, sometimes too late, and sometimes they just fly under the radar and we weep inconsolably for hours knowing that we couldn’t find them in time for our 10 day festival proper in April. But now, with Cineclub, we’ll never have to endure that heartache again, and you’ll have even more chances to see mind-blowing independent films downtown at a/perture cinema.
Cineclub screenings will be a regular fixture on the second Monday of each month at 8 p.m. sharp, and tickets will be $10 (or $6 for a/v society members). The kickoff screening will be on Monday, November 8th, with James Franco portraying the legendary beat poet Allen Ginsberg in HOWL (for those of you who find James Franco more charming on screen when he’s not sawing his forearm off with a pocketknife), a much-talked about film that debuted at Sundance earlier this year. Future installments include the fascinating doc MARWENCOL on Monday, December 13th, about a man who manufactures his own therapy for a traumatic event by building a 1/6th scale replica of a World War II-era town in his own backyard (replete with life-like dolls as citizenry), and, appropriately, SXSW favorite BARRY MUNDAY on Monday, January 10th.
More titles will be announced in the coming weeks, and ticket info can be found at www.aperturecinema.com. Don’t let your RiverRun muscles go feeble in the off-season!
