Secret Cinema cancels Bttf again

25 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Event cinema organiser forced to cancel second consecutive night.

Secret Cinema, the immersive cinema event company, has cancelled the second consecutive night of its latest production, Back To The Future.

Its opening night was canned just a few hours before the show was set to begin in east London yesterday evening, disappointing around 3,500 ticketholders - each having paid £53.50. A preview night on Wednesday had also failed to go ahead.

As seemingly appropriate lightning storms raged over London, Secret Cinema has again been forced to pull the plug on its event, which is due to run over 24 nights until August 31.

In a fresh statement, just two hours before the production was set to begin, the organisation said: “Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight’s performance.

“Secret Cinema has been running safe arts events for 10 years and on this occasion we have come across a number of difficult issues. As you can »

7 July 2014 9:12 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Into the weenie mobile, weenie man away!”

Okay, you have a big decision to make this weekend: do you seen Return Of The Living Dead at midnight at The Hi-Pointe Friday and Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie at The Tivoli midnight on Saturday, or do you see Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie at The Tivoli midnight Friday and Return Of The Living Dead at midnight at The Hi-Pointe on Saturday? Either way, there’s a couple of fun midnight shows in St. Louis this weekend (read my take on the Return Of The Living Dead screening Here)

If you’re unacquainted with the origin of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie, a cult cable series on the Sci-Fi Channel, fret not. Think of Mad Magazine meets a live-action version of Beavis & Butthead, and you’re on your way to the moon. Instead of having Burger »

Exclusive On Set Interview: Scott Derrickson - Deliver Us From Evil

3 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Scott Derrickson, as evidenced by this interview, is one of the most thoughtful, sure-handed American directors the genre has working in the field today. If you’re not convinced of that after Sinister alone, then Deliver Us From Evil just might make you a believer.

Inspired by the true events of officer Ralph Sarchie and his dealings with the occult and assistance with actual exorcisms in some of the darkest corners of New York City, Derrickson and company will do their worst in trying to convince us that these occurrences are based in fact.

In doing so, Derrickson will also probably wind up scaring the crap out of you.

When we spoke to Derrickson on set in the South Bronx back in July of 2013, his usual soft, inviting demeanor was still on full display even though he was neck deep in the minute-to-minute stress of shooting a nuanced film that »

Tuesday Top Ten: Unconventional Fourth of July Movie Selections

1 July 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with this week's Tuesday Top Ten. Wikipedia tells this Australian that the Fourth of July, Independence Day, is a day usually celebrated with “fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions and political speeches and ceremonies.” Curious that they don’t include movies since, at least since 1991 when James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day premiered to one of the then biggest opening weekends of all time, the big July 4th blockbuster is an annual trend with the likes of Independence Day, the Transformers franchise, Superman Returns and seemingly anything starring Will Smith.

With the holiday this Friday, most lists of movies to watch over the long holiday weekend will feature masculine, almost brutish titles that celebrate America’s achievements in war and rah-rah bravura (The Patriot, Saving Private Ryan, Top Gun) or the coming of age of a nation and its people in almost gooey fashion (Field of Dreams, »

A Dozen Awesome Movies That Celebrate What's Great About America

1 July 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

When it comes to America, the values, the principles, and ideals that we strive for are great. Freedom, liberty, truth, justice, happiness and the right stand up against tyranny are ideas that we can all believe in... but what about the stuff? The tangible things that distinguish this great nation from others are worth taking note of as well. That’s why we’re taking a moment, in honor of our great nation, to say “Thanks” to the movies that celebrate uniquely American cultural artifacts.

Hot Dogs — Father of the Bride

Bread has been around for tens of thousands of years and sausage too has been around for a couple millenia, but it was only in America that a hot dog could be created. And only an American comedy legend like Steve Martin could bring to the big screen the hot dog conundrum that has perplexed us all.

Looking back at Dick Tracy

26 June 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Becky looks back at an almost-forgotten comic book adaptation from a time before they were cool: Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy.

Feature

Chester Gould’s famous yellow-coated detective, Dick Tracy, has appeared across various mediums since his first comic strip appearance in 1931, but it wasn’t until 1990 that the character made his way into blockbuster territory. It may have been considered less than successful on release and forgotten to a certain extent since then, but there is a lot to love about Warren Beatty’s film, imbued with an infectious sense of fun and comic strip visuals that continue to impress.

Dick Tracy went through several hands before it finally landed Beatty in the director’s chair, though the actor had had a concept for it as far back as 1975. It’s a long and rocky development history that saw names such as Steven Spielberg and John Landis offered the »

The Cheap Sin of Preferring the Wrong Movie in a Dueling Pair

24 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In almost every set of “dueling” movies, whether they’re competing biopics or similar-premise disaster flicks out within months of each other, there’s a right one and a wrong one as far as which you’re supposed to prefer. It’s okay to enjoy Michael Bay’s Armageddon, but you should recognize Mimi Leder’s Deep Impact as the better movie. Capote over Infamous. Observe and Report over Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Top Gun over Iron Eagle. Dantes Peak over Volcano. Tombstone over Wyatt Earp. 1492: Conquest of Paradise over Christopher Columbus: The Discovery. The Prestige over The Illusionist. Mission to Mars over Red Planet. Chasing Liberty over First Daughter. Leviathan over DeepStar Six, and The Abyss over both of them. Some pairs are nearly a draw as far as neither actually being worth a preference, such as Lambada and The Forbidden Dance. Here’s a more recent one: Cheap Thrills over 13 Sins. The »

Beyond Fright Review: Son Of Ghostman

18 June 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Denny McNamara hasn’t been having the best of luck lately. His girlfriend Renee dumped him, his brother is threatening to to sell Denny’s house if he can’t come up with next month’s rent, and he’s become so unsure of himself, he’s beginning to question his real purpose in life. Like many horror fans, Denny has a soft spot for horror hosts of the 1980s, like Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark, or Mystery Science Theater 3000. Denny’s personal favorite has always been Ghostman, a jolly, sarcastic host of the underworld with a painted face and a single mission: to share his love of the genre with all who care to watch. Sadly, Ghostman has recently been replaced with a younger, more attractive frontman named Rick, who prefers to be called by his stage name, “Count Dracool”.

8 most unusual cinemas in the world: Guantanamo Bay, the ocean and more

14 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While the combination of sunny weather and sporting events like the World Cup tends to be a mood-improver for most, it's bad news for the box office. Most cinemas will be bracing themselves for a lean weekend, but what about those picturehouses that go the extra mile to stand out?

We've rounded up 8 of the world's most unusual movie-viewing venues below...

Guantanamo Bay Lyceum cinemas, Cuba

There's a great sense of irony in the fact that while the self-confessed architect of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, sits in his guarded prison cell in the world's most notorious detention centre, just the other side of the wall, Us soldiers can watch Oliver Stone's World Trade Centre on the big screen.

There are, in fact, two outdoor cinemas within Guantanamo Bay for the 1,000-strong guard force and people who live and work there. They show the latest Us releases on huge grass areas with tiered stadium seats. »

Entertainment Geekly: A call for an end to serious blockbusters

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

I never really had my Godzilla moment as a kid. The closest I ever came was a Godzilla franchise marathon one Saturday afternoon. I watched while everyone else was outside doing outside things, and my main memory of the marathon was thinking to myself, “Geez, these movies really drag when Godzilla’s not onscreen.” I think I was 10?
