At the Arthouse

Non-multiplex flick picks for the week

by

Blackthorn

Remember the classic ending of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, where the outlaw duo met their end in a hail of gunfire? Well, apparently Butch made it out alive and is now living in Bolivia as a horse dealer named James Blackthorn. But he's got one last score on his mind. This cool little western comes from the guy who wrote The Sea Inside and the original Spanish version of Vanilla Sky. It's at the Cinematheque at 7 p.m. Friday, January 6, and 9:40 p.m. Saturday, January 7. — Michael Gallucci

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Stanley Kubrick's Cold War classic screens as part of the Late Shift series at midnight Saturday, January 7, at the Cedar Lee Theatre.

Intolerance

D.W. Griffith's two-hour-and-forty-five-minute epic from 1916 interlocks several stories as it spans generations of man dicking over man for one reason or another. Jesus even makes an appearance. So does Joseph Rubin, who plays live accompaniment. Cinematheque. At 7:15 p.m. Saturday, January 7.

Man of the West

The Cinematheque continues its tribute to director Anthony Mann's westerns, but this time it's without James Stewart. Instead, it's Gary Cooper who plays the reformed outlaw who's forced to join his old gang. Cinematheque. At 5 p.m. Saturday, January 7, and 2 p.m. Sunday, January 8.

Passione

John Turturro's documentary about Naples' vibrant musical history sadly lacks a scene in which Turturro licks a bowling ball. Cinematheque. At 9 p.m. Friday, January 6, and 4 p.m. Sunday, January 8.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Yeah, they're still showing the 1970s classic at midnight on the first Saturday of each month. So yeah, you can see it at the Cedar Lee Theatre on January 7.
