Restrictions:

R18

Ticket Information:

  • General Admission: $10.00

Our annual Easter screenings of both Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain and Ken Russell's The Devils return as a double feature - for only $10 to see both!

At 5pm we have the ‘scandal of the Cannes Film Festival’ that was was funded by John Lennon and Yoko: The Holy Mountain. The film presents a corrupt, greed-fueled world, in which a powerful alchemist leads a Christ-like character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment.

After an intermission we’ll play the X-rated UK version of Ken Russell’s 1971 magnum opus The Devils about the hysteria which occurs within 17th century Loudon when Father Urbain Grandier is accused of witchcraft by a sexually repressed nun. Warner Brothers still refuses to give this film a proper uncut release after 47 years!
