Bad Day at Black Rock
John Sturges’s lean-and-mean CinemaScope color noir featuring a beguiling Spencer Tracy as a no-nonsense man investigating a suspected killing in a tiny California desert town plays 6/10 on 35mm.
A cinematic experience truly unlike any other, 32 Sounds, screening 6/16 and 6/17, investigates the mysterious nature of perception and the subtle yet radical politics that arise from sensation and being present in one’s body.
On 6/16, see Lynch’s bleary and bewitching vision of Tinsel Town, a love story about two women whose bond—with all its frustration, eroticism, chemistry, blending, bleeding, and explosive desire—spans the feeling of cinema itself.
