Czech New Wave iconoclast Juraj Herz’s terrifying, darkly comic vision of the horrors of the Nazi racial ideology. Karel Kopfrkingl, (the chilling Rudolf Hrušínský) a crematorium director in 1930s Prague, believes that death offers the only true relief from human suffering. Herz’s long-banned masterpiece stands as one of cinema’s most disturbing portraits of evil.

In a deft tragicomic performance, Jess Weixler (Teeth) plays Mabel, a movie star “slumming it” in an outré art-horror film. As her relationship with Rosenthal (Under the Skin’s Adam Pearson), a gentle young man with a facial deformity, evolves, cinematic notions of beauty, representation, and exploitation are questioned. Unlike anything you've ever seen recently this brilliant, weird feature resembles David Lynch's Eraserhead and Todd Browning’s Freaks

Drag Me to the Movies: The Queen & Paris Is Burning (New 4K Restorations)
Fri, Dec 20 / 7 pm
More than 40 years before RuPaul's Drag Race, the 1967 Miss All-American Camp Beauty Pageant introduced audiences to the world of competitive drag. Organized by LGBTQ icon and activist Flawless Sabrina, it boasted a star-studded panel of judges. The Queen features an epic diatribe calling out the pageant's bias delivered by Crystal LaBeija. A Drag performance intermission by Emerald Stardust will be followed at 9:30 pm with a screening of a newly restored copy of PAri is Burning - a vibrant snapshot of the 80s through the eyes of NYC’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag.
