Ladies & Gentlemen, please join us from your homes for the Living Room Film Festival. Even though the theater is closed for in-person screenings through the end of November, we will still be curating this Virtual Cinema series. These remain films that you can’t yet buy via an on-demand service - in any other time, you’d have to go to the theater to see them.
Films will still open on a Friday and run for two-three weeks, and our plan is to always have a slate of distinctly different titles running. We’re partnering with a lot of different distributors on these, which means there will be a few different ways of accessing the films; instructions on how to watch the film once you have purchased your virtual ticket are listed with each title.
Please note that we are not hosting these films ourselves, so we are not able to provide technical support directly. Each distributor has a customer support email listed for their films, and have been very quick to respond.
So get the popcorn popping, and dim the lights. And if you happen to have blue & red neon tubes running the length of your ceiling, make sure you flip those off once the trailers are over. "And now, our Feature Presentation..."
THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
Turns out a stuntman-turned-filmmaker unleashed the most explosive, death-defying, bullet-riddled, grenade-launching, flame-broiled, anti-human megattack in independent film history — shot in Texas – back in 1989, and no one knew… UNTIL NOW.
When you think of the broad panorama of VHS-era action, your mind detonates with fast cars, helicopter chases, profanity, stolen diamonds, FBI agents, men on fire and Casio soundtracks. But what if we told you there’s one single movie that impossibly squeezes all of the above into 89 minutes, not to mention sunroof gunfights, a car jumping over a school bus packed with screaming children, honkytonk brawlin’, bathroom kissin’, plus exploding cars, houses AND recreational vehicles? In the late ‘80s, against all known laws of reality, daredevil-turned-filmmaker John Stewart took to the cities, highways and saloons of Texas and accomplished that very feat in ACTION U.S.A. NR (Mature) / 89 min.
