Cinema Ray: The Devils

Cinema Ray brings another hard-to-find screening for your viewing pleasure!  This month is Ken Russell’s 1971 historical drama horror film, The Devils.

Very loosely based on the the rise and fall of a 17th century French priest who was executed for witchcraft, this film was heavily edited (where it wasn’t outright banned) for its disturbingly violent, sexual & religious content and is hard to find in print today.

Get here early for a lucky ticket drawing for fabulous swag, followed by a mix of film shorts and oddities!

Cinema Ray & PUFF present The Evil Within

15 years in the making, The Evil Within could be the next horror cult classic!

Andrew Getty, heir to the Getty Oil fortune, poured $5M of his own money in this production and he personally agonized over every frame. During the 5 years of production, he insisted on elaborate, expensive sets, custom-built camera rigs, and realistic animatronics.  Over the course of 15 years, this horror film consumed Andrew Getty.  He never saw it completed as he died from a methamphetamine overdose on March 31, 3015.

Now YOU can experience the madness due to the collaboration between PUFF & Cinema Ray!  The film with be introduced by PUFF founder, Madeleine Koestner and Birth.Movies.Death. writer, Phil Nobile Jr.

Cinema Ray presents Heavy Metal

Cinema Ray presents the 1981 dark erotic fantasy/horror animation, Heavy Metal.

“Adventures from deep space to futuristic New York, and beyond. Each world and story is dominated by the presence of the Loch’nar — the sum of all evils manifest as a glowing green sphere whose power infects all times, all galaxies, all dimensions. To some, it appears as treasure, a green jewel they must possess. Others worship it as a god. Few escape it. Even in death and through death its powers continue. From war to war and world to world it seems invincible.”

Be sure to get there early for entry into a drawing for some cool prizes.  Seating is limited!

Cinema Ray presents Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom

Cinema Ray presents the once banned (and certainly still controversial) film Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom in which four fascists kidnap young men and women and subject them to torture and perversion.  Mature content!

The final work of notorious Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini, this film updates the Marquis de Sade’s most extreme novel to fascist Italy in the final days of WW II. Dispensing with the novel’s meditations on sexual liberation and the search for truth, Pasolini presents four decadents who kidnap dozens of young men and women and subject them to the most hideous forms of torture and perversion in an isolated villa. Rape, murder, and a coprophagic banquet are only the beginning of the atrocities on display. Photographed by Tonino Delli Colli, the film also features a lavish score by Ennio Morricone. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

Seating is limited, so be sure to arrive early to make sure you get drinks and snacks!  A short pre-show will features selected shorts and trailers.

$5 admission, doors at 7:15

Cinema Ray: Fire Walk With Me

The cinematic conclusion to Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me comes straight from the surreal mind of David Lynch.  Join Cinema Ray as they bear witness to this intense, disturbing and well constructed cinematic experience…which creates more questions than it answers and retains elements of mystery in a fatalistically driven plot environment!
A pre-show of shorts and oddities, as well as a prize giveaway, happens before the screening.  So, come early to get a good seat!
