Iván Zulueta's ARREBATO, aka RAPTURE in 35mm (1979, NYC's Anthology Film Archives) for the first time. [U.S. Theatrical Premiere; 4K and Theatrical Trailers]"Possession"-caliber cinephile mindfuck. Sexy Betty Boop striptease. OR"Joel Silver's Hollywood Drug Cocktail: The Movie."
BTW, this is the first repertory theatrical screening I've attended since theaters re-opened in New York back in March (with an impeccable 35mm transfer struck from a 4K restoration to boot). Some arthouse and indie theaters in NYC are still recovering from the Pandemic. Metrograph hasn't re-opened yet, and Anthology Film Archives is just getting started with in-person screenings. So glad to have spent a Saturday evening attending a packed screening of a unique repertory film, something I used to do often but haven't done in almost two years. :-D
Good that you're going again - I guess. I was very happy at first when I could go back into the theaters, but I have a little of a strange relationship towards the cinema atm. People annoy me more than before the pandemic, I hope that will go away.
