Buy Tickets


Double Feature with today’s 2:45 screening of ENDLESS POETRY

(2013) dir Alejandro Jodorowsky w/Brontis Jodorowsky, Pamela Flores, Jeremias Herskovits [133 min; DCP]
In this radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contribute to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, THE DANCE OF REALITY reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.

“The Dance of Reality is a surprisingly moving, emotionally satisfying experience, which twirls you round in a warm, confident embrace, making sure to toss in plenty of its director’s signature madcap moves.” – Emma Simmonds, The List

“El Topo is back. A surprisingly poignant, AMARCORD-like memoir.” – James Verniere, Boston Herald

“It is playful and expansive. This film is awesome in the old sense of the word. It is one of the best films of the year.” – Witney Seibold, Nerdist

“A stirring and strange mix of history, memory, and fantasy.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
