Dr. Strangelove at Changing Hands Phoenix
Our first event was a screening of Dr. Strangelove at Changing Hands Phoenix. We wanted to bring something politically relevant to the screen, and unfortunately this classic farce about the most hubristic, incompetent and blindly patriotic members of our government bringing about the end of the world fits the bill almost too perfectly.
What We Do in the Shadows at Monarch Theatre
What if you made MTV’s “The Real World,” but with vampires? That’s the deceptively simple premise behind “What We Do in the Shadows,” a “This Is Spinal Tap”-style mockumentary for horror fiends, directed and written by New Zealand comic masterminds Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi – the former of “Flight of the Conchords,” the latter of “Thor: Ragnarok”
Do the Right Thing at Changing Hands Phoenix
Spike Lee’s new movie “BlacKkKlansman” looked amazing even before it won the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Better still, its release this August is as good an excuse as any to revisit the film that brought Spike Lee to the mainstream in 1989, “Do the Right Thing.”
Mad Max: Fury Road - Black & Chrome Edition at 180º Automotive
Celebrate the badass woman of Mad Max: Fury Road with the badass women of 180 Degrees Automotive in central Phoenix. We’ll be screening the Black & Chrome edition, in which the high-octane post-apocalyptic blockbuster is stripped down to stark monochrome, the way George Miller originally intended. You will ride eternal, shiny and chrome!
at Changing Hands Phoenix
Wes Anderson’s films are fantastical, intricately constructed dioramas of wit and whimsy. And the director’s 1998 sophomore effort, “Rushmore,” may very well be his best. Our September event was a fundraiser for Save Our Schools Arizona.
