Movies at The Raconteur and The Forum this weekend

| No Comments
Tonight (Friday) at 8:00pm The Raconteur presents Alice, a movie adaption of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  This version is the brainchild of Czeck surrealist artist Jan Svankmajer and is no Disney movie.  On the movie is described as, "a grotesque adaptation," with roles, "filled by animated taxidermy, disarticulated skeletons, clay figurines, puppets, and slabs of dancing meat," and, "one of the most inventive films I've ever seen."  Parents should be warned - this movie is, "not for kids (unless you're progressive, arty parents and your children are fearless and sleep without nightlights or those sticky glow-in-the-dark stars on the ceiling; indeed, if your little ones blithely sleep in the monster black of total darkness, they might be able to handle Alice.)"  This is a free event with complimentary wine.

Also this weekend, The Forum Theatre continues its excellent run of films with Crazy Heart, starring Jeff Bridges in his Academy Award winning performance (the film also won the award for Best Song).  Showtimes are Friday and Saturday at 6:45pm and 9:00pm and Sunday at 4:45pm and 7:00pm.  Check out the trailer:
