30th Anniversary! Color Version!
1982, 74 min, USA, Dir: Richard Elfman
A mysterious door leads to the Sixth Dimension - get ready for a wild ride - in one of the greatest cult classics of all time! Beautiful young "Frenchy" (Marie-Pascale Elfman) slides through cosmic intestines into a subterranean world ruled by horny midget King Fausto (Herve Villechaize) and his jealous Queen Doris (Susan Tyrrell). "Chicken-boy" (Matthew Bright, director of FREEWAY) comes to the rescue, only to have his head cut off by the soul-singing Devil himself - played by Danny Elfman and the original Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. Frog butlers, topless princesses and rioting school kids sing and dance in unforgettable musical numbers by Danny Elfman, Cab Calloway, Josephine Baker and others. An experience you will never forget!
THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT
2001, Artistic License, 91 min, USA, Dir: Cory McAbee
In an alternate version of the Old West, space travel is the norm and interplanetary trader Samuel Curtis sets off on a journey through the solar system, unaware that his old enemy Professor Hess is hot on his trail. Shooting on gorgeous 35mm black-and-white film, writer, director and star Cory McAbee creates an utterly unique and ambitious blend of genres: part science fiction, part Western, and part musical, THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT is as unclassifiable as it is entertaining.
