Nightclubbing this weekend at the Anthology Film Archives

[Photo of John Lurie via the Anthology Facebook page]

Here's what's happening this weekend at the Anthology Film Archives, Second Street at Second Avenue...

Video artists Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong, in the pre-MTV days from 1977-80, spent their nights documenting New York’s nascent punk and No Wave scenes. Armed with Portapak cameras, they shot rare performances and interviews with the Dead Boys, Iggy Pop, the Heartbreakers, John Cale, the Cramps, Sun Ra, the Go-Go’s, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, James Chance and the Contortions, Richard Hell, and countless others at legendary clubs like CBGB, Mudd Club and Danceteria.

Anthology is thrilled to present four separate screenings comprising seven different compilation programs, with Ivers and Armstrong here in person for Q&As after all shows...

Find all the details here. You can buy tickets here.
Friday 8 p.m.

Seminal performers like Iggy Pop, Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers, Dead Kennedys, and Rocket from the Tombs anchor this exploration of hardcore music with rare early Bad Brains, and the Dead Boys.

In 1980, from Tokyo to Minneapolis, punk music was evolving to create New Wave. With a poppy, electronic sound, bands like The Plastics, the Suburbs, Ballistic Kisses, Bush Tetras, the Go-Go’s, Human Sexual Response, Kid Creole and the Coconuts, Our Daughters Wedding, Pylon, and Strange Party embodied this musical shift.

Saturday 8 p.m.

Conventional wisdom tells us that punk began in 1975 or 76. Not for Suicide, a punk band since 1970. Innovators Alan Vega and Martin Rev put forth the model for the synth duos that went on to dominate the 80s – but with their own unmatched style and legendary use of drum machines, organs, and synths. Travel back in time with us for this SUICIDE LIVE show. Followed by a Q&A with Martin Rev, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 45 min + Q&A.

Sunday 5:45 p.m.

This program hits the bases with the very best performances from fan faves like Divine, The Cramps, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Levi and the Rockats, the Go-Go’s, and more.

Culled from their collection of 25 interviews with musicians, writers, and scene makers, this program finds Ivers and Armstrong talking with Jay Dee Daugherty and Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group), Walter Lure (The Heartbreakers), James Chance (Contortions), Jeff Magnum and Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), and Richard Lloyd (Television).

Followed by a Q&A with Jay Dee Daugherty, from the Patti Smith Group, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 85 min.
Sunday 8 p.m.

Not for the meek, this program features Downtown’s most cutting-edge artists, from Velvet Underground veteran John Cale on his Sabotage tour to rare footage of James Chance and the Contortions, and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks at the Paradise Garage in 1978. No Wave superstars DNA, the Lounge Lizards, and Sun Ra round out the noise fest.

Join us for a program that features a legendary live concert by the Dead Boys at CBGB’s in 1977, at the height of their power! This is American punk at its most raw, honest, and urgent.

Followed by a Q&A with Dead Boys bassist Jeff Magnum, as well as Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong!

Total running time: ca. 85 min.

Checking in on the 'completion project' at the Anthology Film Archives

[EVG photo from last week]

Back in January, the Anthology Film Archives announced plans to expand their current home at 32 Second Ave. at Second Street. There had been plans for a library and cafe at the space since co-founder Jonas Mekas bought the building in a city auction in 1979.

There's more information about the addition (or "completion project"), which will feature the Heaven and Earth Library & Cafe, in the Anthology's lobby...

Bone/Levine Architects filed permits with the city for the landmarked building in late January. (CityRealty first reported this.)

Here's more about the project, which includes a gallery and bookshop, via the Bone/Levine website:

Originally the Third District Magistrates Courthouse, this sturdy and imposing building was purchased by Anthology Film Archives in 1979 and adapted to reuse, opening its doors in 1989. The establishment of Anthology on Second Avenue was concurrent with the expansion of the East Village as a mecca for the avant-garde arts.

As a screening venue and repository of avant-garde, independent and classic cinema, Anthology Film Archives remains a key component of the artistic vitality of the East Village and for the greater film community. Indeed, nowhere else can scholars and connoisseurs of cinema find such a comprehensive collection of works.

But the restoration and renovation of the Anthology Film Archives is not completed. As designed by the late world-renowned architect Raimund Abraham, Anthology was planned to house two movie theaters, a film vault, a paper materials library, and a cafe. Anthology restored the building and built the film vault and two movie theaters. But the completion of the library, an essential part of Anthology Film Archives’ collection and its mission, and the cafe, an important component of its financial sustainability, were left for the future.

The completion of these essential components of Anthology Film Archives ... is critical for the mission of the Anthology and its long-term stability.

Here's a closer look at the one-level expansion via Bone/Levine...

The Anthology held an art auction last Thursday to help raise money for the addition. Guests included John Waters, Jim Jarmusch and Michael Stipe.

Anthology Film Archives first opened on Nov. 30, 1970, at Joseph Papp’s Public Theater. In 1974, it relocated to 80 Wooster St.

"The time came that we cannot postpone anymore," Mekas told Bedford + Bowery in January. "Because we have so much material, we have so much paper, books, periodicals, documentation on cinema that we have to build a library and make those materials available to researchers, scholars, students."

Anthology in the 90s 😎

J.G. Ballard and the Cinema at the Anthology Film Archives

"High-Rise," based on the 1975 novel by J. G. Ballard, opens tomorrow at the Sunshine on East Houston. (Still kinda curious to see how this plays on film. Hey, 66% percent via Rotten Tomatoes!)

Coinciding with this theatrical release, the Anthology Film Archives is presenting a program titled J.G. Ballard and the Cinema:

British author J.G. Ballard is one of the towering figures of 20th-century experimental literature, a writer whose uncompromising, fearless, and sometimes frighteningly penetrating vision of our modern, technological society, and the psychological and erotic dimensions that underlie it, manifested itself in 19 masterful novels and many dozens of short stories. It’s curious that such a profoundly modern writer, and one who was, both in his life and his work, consistently preoccupied with the movies (he lived for 50 years in Shepperton, a stone’s throw from the famous Shepperton Film Studios), has seen so few of his works adapted into film.

As HuffPost put it, "This somewhat loosely structured series features films that have been directly influenced by Ballard, films that Ballard expressed admiration for, and films that just seem Ballardian in theme."

Things kick off tomorrow night with a double dose of David Cronenberg — "Crash" and "Shivers" aka "They Came From Within."

Check out the whole schedule here. (Highlights include a screening Saturday evening of "The Road Warrior," a film Ballard was said to admire.) The Anthology is on Second Avenue at East Second Street.

And check out the trailer for "Crash" (NC-17! The children!)...

Troubled teen film of the weekend: 'River's Edge' at the Anthology Film Archives

Just pointing out a screening tomorrow that's part of the "This Is Celluloid: 35MM Encore" series at the Anthology Film Archives.

It's "River's Edge" from 1986:

When sullen high-schooler John kills his classmate Jamie, far from keeping it a secret he brags about the crime to his friends (played by Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye, and Crispin Glover, among others) and takes them to see the body. Rather than report the crime or struggle with guilt at their association with the killer, they react with morbid curiosity or misplaced loyalty. Without denying its characters a measure of sympathy or understanding, "River's Edge" is a deeply unsettling depiction of teenage alienation and moral paralysis.

The movie, which also stars Dennis Hopper before he got really hammy in the 1990s, was called "the darkest teen film of all time" earlier this year by Salon.

So if this looks like your thing...

The "River's Edge" screening is at 6:45 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday). The Anthology Film Archives is on Second Avenue at East Second Street.

Robert Ryan at Anthology Film Archives

Anthology Film Archives is in the midst of a Robert Ryan retrospective… Here are some details via the Wesleyan University Press (publishers of the new Robert Ryan biography) …

The series collects six of the most arresting screen performances by this gifted artist and activist, whom Martin Scorsese called “one of the greatest actors in the history of American film.” Select screenings will feature discussions with author J.R. Jones, film editor for the Chicago Reader, and Robert Ryan’s son, Cheyney Ryan, professor of law and philosophy at the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict at Oxford University.

Robert Ryan became a star after World War II on the strength of his menacing performance as an anti-Semitic murderer in the film noir Crossfire. Over the next quarter century he created a gallery of brooding, neurotic, and violent characters in such movies as "Bad Day at Black Rock," "Billy Budd," "The Dirty Dozen," and "The Wild Bunch." His riveting performances expose the darkest impulses of the American psyche during the Cold War.

Here's the lineup:

ACT OF VIOLENCE (Fred Zinnemann, 1948)
Sept. 6, 4:15 PM; Sept. 8, 9 PM

ON DANGEROUS GROUND (Nicholas Ray, 1952)
Sept. 7, 7 PM; Sept. 10, 7 PM

THE NAKED SPUR (Anthony Mann, 1953)
Sept. 7, 9:00 PM; Sept. 9, 7 PM

ABOUT MRS. LESLIE (Daniel Mann, 1954)
Sept. 10, 9 PM

BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK (John Sturges, 1955)
Sept. 6, 9 PM; Sept. 8, 7 PM

GOD’S LITTLE ACRE (Anthony Mann, 1958)
Sept. 6, 6:15 PM; Sept. 9, 9 PM

I saw "The Naked Spur" yesterday and it was quite entertaining…

Here's more on Ryan in Artforum this past week.

Anthology Film Archives is on Second Avenue at East Second Street.

The B-Movie King at the Anthology Film Archives this weekend

B-movie titan Roger Corman will be appearing tonight and tomorrow at the Anthology Film Archives on Second Avenue to introduce a few of his classics — "X: The Man with the X-Ray Eyes," "A Bucket of Blood" and "The Tomb of Ligeia."

The Wall Street Journal had an interview with the 89-year-old Corman yesterday. You can read that here. An excerpt as way of an introduction:

Among the 400-plus movies Roger Corman has produced or directed, there are titles more memorable than the films, such as “Attack of the Crab Monsters” and “Teenage Cave Man.”

But there also are early efforts from a string of famous directors and actors whose careers he helped to launch. They include Francis Ford Coppola (“Dementia 13”), Martin Scorsese (“Boxcar Bertha”), Peter Bogdanovich (“Voyage to the Planet of Prehistoric Women”) and Jack Nicholson, whom Mr. Corman first met in a method-acting class.

Mr. Corman ... could have single-handedly invented drive-in movies in the 1950s, when a postwar eruption of teenage culture created a new audience for entertainment at its most sensational. The B-movie impresario kept apace with the times, however, tapping into social trends—and wildly profitable and influential movie concepts—for a career that spans seven decades.

The Anthology is on Second Avenue at East Second Street. Find out more about the screenings here.

And to get you in the mood…

Reel fun: Watch films that people never picked up from Pac Lab

[Image via]

An EVG reader passed along this screening info ... sounds interesting to us...

Anthology Film Archives
Thursday, March 12 @ 7:30pm

The echoing conversation about the death of film is endless and depressing, as is the recent demise of our longtime neighbor on E. 1st St., the esteemed and notorious Pac Lab. Like them or hate them, and there was no in-between, Pac Lab was a true NYC staple, as well as the last local resource we had for same-day processing of Super-8mm and 16mm film. Over the years Pac Lab proved itself to be a company that possessed as much character and quirkiness as its clients.

They catered to artists, students, and even everyday folks looking to transfer their parents’ home movies to video. Being a Pac Lab client often involved an element of risk, with anxious patrons left to wonder: Will my film come back scratched? Will there be any image? Will it come back at all?

In any case, they were a key component and longtime enabler of our regional filmmaking community. Without them, we are forced to face the end of celluloid film much sooner than most of us ever expected.

This unique event will offer up a baker’s dozen of film reels and tapes culled from the remnants of Pac Lab’s significant detritus. Anthology has inherited boxes and bags of films that were submitted for processing, but abandoned by clients who never paid or picked up their footage.

Uncatalogued and entirely unseen by us, our educated guess is that these reels contain copious examples of student film shenanigans, home movies, stoned experiments, attempted art projects, and probably a naked girlfriend or two. For this special show we guarantee that no films will be previewed beforehand and that all selections shall be made blindly and without prejudice. Soundtracks and other alterations may be added to enhance entertainment potential. If you think that one of these reels might be yours, then please join us for your world premiere screening!

Find 'Looking for Johnny' Monday at Anthology Film Archives

Via the EVG inbox

Directed by Danny Garcia ("The Rise and Fall of The Clash"), "Looking For Johnny" is the definitive documentary on New York legendary guitar player Johnny Thunders.

In 90 minutes, this film covers Johnny Thunders career from his beginning in the early 70's to his demise in New Orleans, where he died under mysterious circumstances in 1991.

Here's an earlier trailer for the film …

You can find the new trailer and more info at the film's Facebook page.

And "Looking For Johnny" has its NYC premiere Monday at the Anthology Film Archives. Find those details here.

Finally, here's an anecdote that New York Dolls guitarist Sylvain Sylvain shared with us about Thunders back in March 2013:

Johnny Thunders had an apartment on Avenue A. His closet was like — everything would be pressed and dry cleaned. He had a real unique way of dressing and picking this and this and that and putting it all together.

When we were picking names for the band, he called me, well, he called Ricky Corvette, and run names by me. 'What do you think of Johnny Thunder?' I'd was like Yeah, that's pretty cool Johnny. The phone would ring five minutes later. What about Johnny Thunders?

Here is the Anthology Film Archives as the 27th Precinct

The exterior is converted to film a scene for the TV pilot "Ironside," as noted earlier today...

[Thanks to EVG Facebook friend Maud Dinand for the photo]

Anthology Film Archives becoming the 27th Precinct — for the 'Ironside' TV pilot

EVG reader Marjorie Ingall notes that crews will be in the neighborhood today filming part of the pilot for an "Ironside" remake with Blair Underwood in the Raymond Burr role ... as the police detective in a wheelchair...

(Side note: Don't fuck with "Ironside"!)

Apparently the show will be set in NYC and not San Francisco like the original... as part of the shoot, the exterior of the great Anthology Film Archives on Second Avenue and East Second Street will be transformed into "the 27th Precinct," according to one of the crew members...

Lordy, this all sounds so April Fool's Dayish. It is not.

Anyway, here's the show's opening credits ... from 1967...

'My Mars Bar Movie' opens Friday at the Anthology Film Archives

"My Mars Bar Movie," the 87-minute documentary directed by Jonas Mekas, the filmmaker-poet-writer-curator, had its "world theatrical premiere" last October at the Greenpoint Film Festival.

This weekend, the film will play at the Anthology Film Archives on Second Avenue and Second Street. Per the Anthology website:

Anthology is overjoyed to present this new film by Jonas Mekas, a tribute to the dear, departed Mars Bar. Our neighbor ever since we moved to the Second Avenue Courthouse building in 1988, the Mars Bar represented an undiluted blast of the old East Village, keeping alive the punk sensibility and anarchic attitude that’s increasingly a thing of the past in this part of the city. Destined to be replaced by yet another glass condo building, and taking a piece of our heart with it to the grave, the Mars Bar nevertheless lives on through Mekas’s lens!

And an excerpt...

A Richard Kern retrospective tonight and tomorrow at the Anthology Film Archives

From the EV Grieve inbox .... from the Anthology Film Archives ... Richard Kern will be there tonight for both the 7 and 9 screenings...

Richard Kern’s controversial, unconventional, and darkly comedic short films earned him immediate distinction in the 1980s underground film circuit. A prime figure in the “Cinema of Transgression” group of that era, Kern is likely more recognized today for his erotic photographs, books, and videos. Looking back it is clear that Kern’s Super-8 films were an attack on the entrenched avant-garde and a close-up examination of highly subversive behavior. Starring the likes of Lydia Lunch, Nick Zedd, David Wojnarowicz, Karen Finley, Lung Leg, Henry Rollins, and Kembra Pfahler, featuring original soundtracks by musicians such as Foetus and Sonic Youth, and widely distributed on VHS during the burgeoning days of alternative and punk music, Kern’s films remain shocking, sexy, disturbed, debauched, violent, and really quite wonderful. These eye-opening works still rattle the senses.

In conjunction with a group show featuring his photographs at the gallery Maccarone (630 Greenwich Street), opening on September 9, and to celebrate Anthology’s preservation of a number of his works, we present this two-program survey of Kern’s most notable films. Along with a few surprises!
