    Miami Premiere Engagement!

    THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO

    Directed by Joe Talbot / 2019 / 120 minutes / Rated R

    TRAILER: https://youtu.be/C0FnJDhY9-0


    Director/co-writer/composer Joe Talbot makes an astonishing feature debut, transfiguring one man’s intimate despair into a timely story that questions who has a rightful claim to a city’s identity. Inspired by the real-life story of Jimmie Fails, who plays a fictionalized version of himself, THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO elegantly engages with a loss of cross-cultural connection as one individual seeks belonging in the new incarnation of his hometown.

    Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind.
    “Like Barry Jenkins similarly set Medicine for Melancholy, The Last Black Man in San Francisco supplies positivity to the struggle.”–TIME OUT

    “[A] story that doesn’t announce its themes but instead transforms lived-in ideas about friendship, loneliness, artmaking, gentrification and the many faces of black masculinity.”– NEW YORK TIMES

    THIS IS HOME: A REFUGEE STORY 

    Director Alexandra Shiva / 2018 / 1h 31m / Unrated 


    THIS IS HOME is is an intimate portrait of four Syrian families arriving in Baltimore, Maryland and struggling to find their footing. With eight months to become self-sufficient, they must forge ahead to rebuild their lives. When the travel ban adds further complications, their strength and resilience are put to the test.

    Only twenty-one thousand Syrian refugees out of five million have been accepted into the United States since 2011. This is Home follows four families sent to resettle in Baltimore in 2016. They have just eight months to find jobs, learn English, and become self-sufficient. The clock starts right when they land. Despite good intentions, a vast cultural divide prevents the new arrivals and the Americans trying to help them from truly understanding each other. For Syrians like Khaldoun, who was tortured and left physically disabled, and children like Mohammad, who suffers from PTSD, their needs extend far beyond lessons in proper job attire.

    Halfway through the process, President Trump issues a travel ban on all refugees from Muslim-majority countries, and suddenly their lives, and the safety of loved ones still trapped in Syria, become all the more perilous. With much-needed empathy, filmmaker Alexandra Shiva reveals the inherent decency of a displaced community desperate for help within a country increasingly hostile to principles of inclusion and opportunity.

    DIAL M FOR MURDER

    in 3/D

    Directed by ALFRED HITCHCOCK/1954/1hr, 45mins.

    With Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings

    DIAL M FOR MURDER Japanese program, 1953. #MBCarchive

    It is apropos that “the Master of Suspense” joined the 3/D bandwagon, since he was also master of re-inventing his reputation as trends of the decade ruled at the box office. The magical combination of Hitchcockian suspense paired with modern in-your-lap 3/D made one his most beloved classics even more memorable. A story of blackmail and murder revolving around a tennis player and his wife becomes much more fun in three dimensions. 

    “…a murder without gleaming scissors is like asparagus without the hollandaise sauce, tasteless."-Alfred Hitchcock

    THE MAZE

    in 3/D

    Directed by WILLIAM CAMERON MENZIES/1953/80mins.

    With Richard Carlson, Veronica Hurst, Katherine Emery


    Newly Restored in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive from 4K scans by Paramount Pictures Archives! The Maze is a 1953 atmospheric horror film in 3-D, directed by William Cameron Menzies (Invaders from Mars, Things to Come) and starring Richard Carlson (The Magnetic Monster) as Scotsman Gerald MacTeam (Carlson) who abruptly breaks off his engagement to pretty Kitty Murray (Veronica Hurst) after receiving word of his uncle's death and inheriting a mysterious castle in the Scottish Highlands. Kitty refuses to accept the broken engagement and travels with her aunt (Katherine Emery) to the castle. When they arrive, they discover that Gerald has suddenly aged and his manner has changed significantly. After a series of mysterious events occur in both the castle and the hedge maze outside, they invite a group of friends, including a doctor, to the castle, hoping they can help Gerald with whatever ails him. Menzies was known for his very dimensional style, focusing many shots in layers – The Maze was his final film as production designer and director.
