Fantastic movie series at the Grand Illusion

I take a break from my house cleaning (my second break, actually, as I took a break to make a malt earlier) to announce that Dennis Nyback is back in town at the Grand Illusion starting this Friday and there will be movie-watching galore. (I cry at missing Friday and Saturday's shows due to performances.) Check out this series:

FRIDAY July 29th & SATURDAY July 30th
F*CK MICKEY MOUSE: Ten cartoons from the 1930's that show how other animation studios battled against the Disney Company juggernaut.
TOP SECRET ANIMATION SHOW: Titles cannot be announced for this program, which shows the truth about American history as evidenced by classic cartoons that the copyright holders have suppressed for many years. (The email they sent out says this: "A whole lot more supressed cartoons that shows the good ol' days for what they were: racist, sexist, and violent!" To think I will miss this program!)

I will be obliged to go on Tuesday at 9 for SMOKING DRINKING AND SEX: A fantastic collection of shorts on our finest vice.

Other programs include:MARCIA BRADY FETISH NIGHT, VAUDEVILLE DELUXE, THE MORMON CHURCH EXPLAINS IT ALL TO YOU and THE EFFECTS OF DADA & SURREALISM IN HOLLYWOOD FILMS OF THE 1930's. Behold, I emerge from the tyranny of Patience only to completely geek out in a dark room in the U-district! Join me, will you?
