      Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

      Don Siegel’s sci-fi classic from 1956 holds up better than ever, offering postwar paranoia at its finest and a nice reminder that U.S. political derangement is nothing new. Coming to the Cinematheque’s ever provocative Noir Sidebar series for three nights starting Saturday (August 19).


      The Projector: What to see and where to see it

      Radiohead: Meeting People Is Easy Actually, meeting people kinda sucks if you’re Radiohead on a PR tour in 1998. Watch Thom and the boys suffer at the Vancity Theatre starting Friday (August 18).

      Kiss Me Deadly  One of the most gonzo entries in the Cinematheque’s Film Noir series is essential for anyone still curious about what was inside the Pulp Fiction briefcase. Starts Saturday (August 19) for three nights.

      Le Paradis  Via Cinema Salon, DOXA programmer Dorothy Woodend hosts a rare chance to see this intimate work from acclaimed French master Alain Cavalier, at the Vancity Theatre on Tuesday (August 22).



      Fans of Wet Hot American Summer, this is where it began. Fully mulleted Bill Murray was soaring as SNL’s newest cast member when this low-budget comedy from the Canadian-tax-shelter era went mega. Camp would never look the same again. See it at the Cinematheque on Sunday (August 20).
