Posted by The Bay Area Crew, September 19, 2019 09:13pm | Post a Comment

Litquake, San Francisco's annual literary festival, returns October 10-19 in venues all over the city. Amoeba Music is thrilled to co-present these two exciting events happening at the Alamo Drafthouse:

Baby, Don't Hurt Me: An Evening with Chris Kattan
Saturday, October 12 • 7:30pm. Alamo Drafthouse New MissionChris Kattan
Chris Kattan has defied comparison, expectations, and sometimes gravity with his inimitable style of physical comedy. By creating some of the most memorable Saturday Night Live characters, as well as his many roles in film and television, Kattan has remained one of the world's most fearless and versatile comedians. His new memoir Baby, Don't Hurt Me offers an unprecedented look into Chris’s life, from working alongside Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, and Tina Fey, to more sobering moments such as breaking his neck at SNL, which sidetracked his career and nearly paralyzed him. Conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald, followed by book sales and signing. Tickets $30.

The Lady From the Black Lagoon
Wednesday, October 16 • 7:00pm. Alamo Drafthouse New MissionLady from the Black Lagoon
The horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon released to theaters in 1954, and quickly became iconic. But thanks to a jealous male colleague, the monster’s designer Milicent Patrick received zero credit for her contribution. Her career ended soon thereafter, and she disappeared. Screenwriter and film producer Mallory O’Meara uncovers a fascinating story of the woman who created one of Hollywood’s classic movie monsters. The Lady from the Black Lagoon establishes Milicent Patrick in her rightful place in film history, while calling out a Hollywood culture where little has changed since. Book signing at 6pm, followed by 7pm onstage conversation and screening of the film (in 3-D). Tickets $25.

Weird Wednesday at The Alamo Drafthouse New Mission in September

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, September 1, 2019 03:42pm | Post a Comment

Amoeba and Alamo Drafthouse are at it again this September as we continue our partnership for Weird Wednesday at the New Mission theater in SF! Weird Wednesday is Alamo's weekly celebration of movies that are too outrageous, too beastly, too gritty, and sometimes too synthy for prime time. Here's what we have in store for you this month...

SLEEPWALKERS (1992)
Wednesday, September 4. 10:15pm
Mary and her son Charles are shapeshifting, telekinetic beasts who eat the souls of virgins and battle really cute house cats. Oh, and they’re also lovers. Filled with gory carnage, jaw-dropping special effects, and a constant barrage of insanity, Sleepwalkers is the ultimate WTF party in Stephen King’s filmography. Look for uncredited cameos from Mark Hamill, Joe Dante, Tobe Hooper, and Clive Barker. Plus a scene with John Landis eating a sandwich while performing an autopsy.



AN EVENING OF SYNTH ROCK W/ GENESIS AND EMERSON, LAKE, AND PALMER (1977)
Wednesday, September 11. 10:40pm
A 35mm double bill played L*O*U*D, communing us with the colorful godz of classic progressive rock. Come take a topographic journey into 21st Century Schizoid land with us. Everything that makes prog wonderful (and everything scoffed at by critics of the day) is on display in Genesis: In Concert (‘77) and ELP: Pictures At An Exhibition (‘73): synths, organs, dual drummers, Rickenbacker basses, guitar prodigies, elaborate stage shows, astounding sounds, lyrics from another planet and melodies from the eighth dimension.
