Living in Los Angeles, it's pretty easy to spend EVERY NIGHT doing something. There are countless bars, clubs, museums and movie theatres to choose from no matter what day of the week it is. I know that I am guilty of looking for something to do almost every night, as if I'm going to miss some sort of life affirming event. Obviously seeing a flick or a band is not USUALLY life-affirming, especially nowadays with the instant gratification of the internet. However, there is one movie theatre in Los Angeles that if I miss an event, I know I'll regret it, especially this month. The Cinefamily (or, Silent Movie Theatre) is that place and the month of October is probably when they do their finest work. It seems as though they try to find the most gonzo, horrifying and hilarious films on the planet (literally) to share with the LA film scene. The way its curated sometimes seems like a joke. For example, last night I attended a TRIPLE FEATURE of Halloween 2, Nightmare on Elm St. 3 AND Friday The 13th Part 4. It's that kind of daring and winking that makes Cinefamily such a fun place. It feels like you're at a buddies house who happens to own a giant screen.
But enough with the handjob. If you can, go to Cinefamily this month to check out over a dozen more events including a live horror movie score band called NILBOG.
