DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

Though not about advertising or Madison Avenue, Virginia Woolf captures the oppressive atmosphere of American life in the 60s, where expectations ran high for success and a post war utopian way of life. Virginia Woolf captures the failure of these expectations better than any other film (or TV show) before or since. Don't miss this rare screening.

CINEMA PURGATORIO PRESENTS

"BJORK: BIOPHILIA LIVE" & "WHEN BJORK MET ATTENBOROUGH"

Oct. 20, 2014, 7 p.m.
All seats $18.00

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

The film documents the live show based on Biophilia, the multi-disciplinary, multimedia exploration of the intersection of music, nature and technology first released in 2011 as an album and suite of apps which NPR called "astounding." The intimate Biophilia performance, which premiered in 2011 in what The Wall Street Journal called a "magical evening," finds Bjork accompanied by unique musical instruments, collaborators and visuals. "To bring the manifold ideas of her Biophilia app/album/educational series/multimedia experience to life," Pitchfork writes, "Bjork is accompanied by an all-female Icelandic choir, a dazzling set of nature films, and a variety of custom-made instruments, including a Tesla coil that descends from the ceiling. In short, it's...mind-blowing."

Directors Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland, unique voices in their own right, film Bjork live in performance and augment her music with animation created by top designers. The film, produced by Jacqui Edenbrow/Gloria Films, also features science and nature archive and found footage inspired by the themes of the album, which explore the relationships between musical structures and natural phenomena-atomic, cellular and cosmic. The infinitely creative journey presents a culmination of work that represents one of the most original musical endeavors of a generation.

DIGITAL PRESENTATION

The iconic German horror masterpiece on the big screen accompanied by The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra of Minnesota. Originating in St. Louis, the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra employs a perspective that films of the Silent Era are not dusty museum pieces, but rather vital and urgently relevant works of art. The ensemble consciously eschews the styles that dominated early film accompaniment--often the popular tunes of the time--in observance of the century of popular music that has since shaped the contemporary ear. Performing all original music, the R&P MPO is a contemporary motion picture orchestra serving a contemporary audience, imbuing the film narratives with a genuinely complementary and supportive aural accompaniment.

NEW DIGITAL CINEMA RESTORATION.

Once again The Heights is presenting a long lost silent film! Why Be Good? was considered a lost film since a fire at Warner Bros in the 1950's wiped out the last known existing prints, but a lone surviving print was discovered in an Italian film Archive by Film Historian Joe Yranski in 2002. After years of negotiations and the generous support of Warner Bros, The UCLA Film and Television Archive and The Vitatphone project the film has been restored to its original glory, complete with its' jazzy toe tapping original Vitaphone score!

In this Jazz age comedy Colleen Moore plays Pert Kelly a good girl with a wild reputation. When the bosses son (Neil Hamilton) starts to fall for her, he decides to find out if her wild reputation is for real or just a put on.

This special Screening will also include a special pre show organ concert by: HARVERY GUSTAFSON at the keyboard of the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!
