No film captures the playful chaos of action cinema’s Golden Age like this undisputed masterpiece. The Agency is a tough-as-nails, tech-savvy squad of physically ideal humans (led by Playboy icon Dona Speir and soap legend Ronn Moss) who defend Hawaii’s Molokai Island from diamond smugglers, narcotics slingers and a skateboarding maniac armed with an inflatable sex doll. Please note - The July 2 screening will be hosted by Cream of the Crap with trivia, prizes, cash bar and special Skype conversation with Arlene Sidaris, Producer of the film. New 4K restoration courtesy of American Genre Film Archive.

McDonald at the Movies: Gregory’s Girl
Wed, Aug 7 / 7 pm
Kids in the Hall co-founder Kevin McDonald introduces a new 2K restoration of the early comic gem from the director of Local Hero, Bill Forsyth. Sixteen year old Gregory is an awkward, gangly Scottish lad who is in the midst of the throes of puberty. The object of his affection is Dorothy, despite or in part because she is a talented striker who took his place on the school's boys' football team. He is now demoted to distracted goalkeeper. When Gregory finally gets the nerve to ask Dorothy out on a date, the result is not quite what he expects.
