SUSPIRIA: 4K UNCUT RESTORATION
Oct 24 @ 7:30 pm

After two sold-out screenings earlier this month, Dario Argento’s Suspiria: 4K Uncut Restoration returns for four nights at The Frida, October 23-26!  Tickets available here!

20th Century Fox and Synapse Films have joined forces to allow for Synapse’s 4K DCP Restoration of Suspiria – which also boasts a restored original 4.0 discrete surround mix, not heard since its original theatrical release! – to see the light at art house cinemas, and we couldn’t think of a better film to open everyone’s favorite month of all things spooky! Celebrating 40 Years as one of the genre’s most terrifying – and breathtakingly beautiful – classics, Argento’s 1977 chiller stars Jessica Harper as Suzy, an American dancer who travels to Germany to attend ballet school. When she arrives late on a stormy night, she is shocked to find herself knocking on the door without an answer, seeming to suggest the school is empty – except for the terrified-looking student she sees fleeing from the school and into the rainy dark. Returning the next day (after the audience is treated to one of cinema’s most famously-constructed murders), Suzy is admitted to her new school, a gorgeous but menacing house of horrors filled with strange noises, stranger teachers, a terrifying history, and a rapidly increasing body count…

We thank 20th Century Fox and Synapse Films for joining forces to ensure that Dario Argento’s uncut and restored vision is shared with horror lovers as it was meant to be screen – bright, vivid, bloody, and loud, on the big screen!

THE LAIR OF THE WHITE WORM
Oct 24 @ 8:00 pm

Proving that one could never shove too many phallic symbols into one film, director Ken Russell’s witty 1998 horror film The Lair of the White Worm is a gonzo cult masterpiece that Frida Cinema founding board member Giselle Crow has been eager to share with our audiences since we first opened The Frida.  Thanks to the good folks at Lions Gate Films, we are so very excited to bring this peerless oddity to you October 23rd & 24th!

In this subversive adaptation of a novella by Bram Stoker, Eve Trent (Catherine Oxenberg) and her sister Mary (Sammi Davis) are virginal young farm girls mourning the disappearance of their parents, who vanished one night while walking through the woods.  When one of their lodgers, a young archaeologist named Angus Flint (Dr. Who’s Peter Capaldi), discovers a large and unidentifiable skull on their property, he soon deduces the skull may have belonged to the D’Ampton Worm, a mythical beast supposedly slain generations ago by the ancestor of the current Lord D’Ampton (Hugh Grant), friend to the Trent girls.  Coincidentally, one of their neighbors, the beautiful, vampish, slinky Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe), soon takes an interest in both Flint and Eve, hinting that the vicious D’Ampton Worm may still be alive…

So much more than a simple vampire yarn, The Lair of the White Worm is an erotic and ultra-sacrilegious romp that alternates between mystery thriller, broad British comedy, and all-out monster flick, elevated to a true thing of beauty by the glorious coupling of surrealist director Russell’s style (Altered States, Tommy, The Devils), and a deliciously unhinged performance by Donohoe as the seductive Lady Sylvia, who at one points delivers one of cult cinema’s greatest explanatory monologues – while nestled nude in a tanning bed.

ABOUT “BEETLEJUICE”
After Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) die in a car accident, they find themselves stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable urbanites the Deetzes (Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones) and teen Goth daughter Lydia (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands attempt to scare them away – but as newbies to the realm of the undead, they have very little luck. Their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rambunctious spirit who touts his services as a “Bioexorcist” in the hopes of getting hired for the job. But what the Maitlands don’t know is that Beetlejuice may have some trouble up his sleeve for them as well – as well as eyes on the innocent Lydia…

THE SHINING: Stephen King Month
Oct 25 @ 7:30 pm

Voted the #1 Scariest Film of All Time by Entertainment Weekly, and riding at the top of most Horror Film ranking lists, Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying masterpiece of looming dread The Shining closes out our four-film tribute to Master of Horror Stephen King, screening Wednesday October 25 (7:30pm), Thursday October 26 (7:30pm), and Saturday October 28 (5pm).

Jack Nicholson delivers one of his most unhinged and iconic performances as Jack Torrance, a struggling writer who takes a job as the winter caretaker of the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions that only get worse the more time he spends at the creepy hotel. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets, and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hellbent on terrorizing his family.

Truly an experience of sight and sound best experienced on the big screen (as are all films, but notably, the films of Stanley Kubrick), The Shining will be presented in 4K and on a remastered 5.1 stereo soundtrack, courtesy of Warner Bros.

Come and play with us…
