Mind = blown.

“Okay, fam! Let's get this straight about Fairfax Cinema. Hadrian Belove bought himself a house in 2017, right around the same time he settled a sexual harassment lawsuit against him. The Cinefamily then closed its doors in late 2017.”

And...another drive-by egging. And on Christmas Day no less! Have you no soul? We can scrape eggs from the Fairfax Cinema windows all day, people! We have no jobs and no interior lives.

Anyway, Happy Holidays from our theatere to yours!

On Giving Tuesday please consider donating to our nonprofit 501c3 independent mom and pop theatere. Our little slice of filmland cool began with the big idea that one day our founder and chief pig programmer would marry his sweetheart ticket taker and our theatere would truly become a mom and pop one stop shop. When that pipe dream inevitably failed to materialize our founder and chief pig programmer would get VERY ANGRY. So angry he would throw things or shove you or slap you or stammer his feet and scream to high heaven. "Please help us!" we would say but we had no mouths which is why you couldn't hear us screaming. The popcorn you ate at our theatere was first eaten by rats and then to save a dime we would have to kill the rats and harvest the popcorn from their tiny tummies and mold the cute little turds to get them back into a believable popcorn-like shape then we would put the turds into the popping machine which was infested by cockroaches by the way and serve it up hot with you and at you. This process took a VERY long time which is why you would often come to the lobby in the middle of your 3 1/2 hour movie and there wouldn't be any popcorn. But rest assured with your tax deductible donation we had someone out back slaughtering the rats and picking through their insides so that by the end of The Tin Drum we would finally have popcorn again but by then it was too late, you didn't want it anymore, and you would go back to your apartment thinking to yourself, "What a special theatere. I feel so lucky to be a part of this thriving film community. At home little old me feels all alone in the world but here in the darkness of this haunted single screen movie palace I feel alive and like I belong."

we interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you a sad personal note from the brothers harkham: we stand with the hollywood community today in mourning bob evans. a legend in his own right. when the public said bring us more films bob he brought them. continue to bring it in hollywood heaven bob. when a star shines as bright as yours sometimes it flames out. love story is actually a truly terrible film btw. we deeply regret you never apologized for that one bob how could you. oh well. they dont make em like they used to thats for sure. ps sumner redstone is still alive.

sincerly, danny & sammy.

"A psyche-shattering presentation featuring the most outrageous clips of copulation across the history of film! Since its inception, the motion picture has titillated our collective senses in more ways than you can shake a…well, let’s just say in a lot of ways. From the shiny mainstream to the slimy underground, from the restrained to the risqué, from the prudish to the piggish, sexual images have soaked cinema with their uncanny ability to turn peoples’ heads, curl their toes and make them feel all funny inside — and since the Cinefamily truly believes in the Catherine Breillat-approved adage that “sex is comedy”, it’s time to get real funny. Tonight we celebrate the absolute finest in demented on-screen porkage, alongside every conceivable combination of limbs, lips, etc. Bring a date (or at least someone you need to broach certain topics with…)!"

Fan mail! Thank you to our inexplicable supporters and the fans who worship at the altar of Ken Loach, Ken Anger, & Ken Russell but NOT Ken Branagh whose filmic achievements are the cinematic equivalent of human scum not to be shown anywhere but a corporate AMC theatere nearest you.

Hustlers (2019) dir. Lorena.

One of the scariest horror movies we have seen in recent memory. J. Lo gives the performance of her career making your skin crawl right off of your body limp with fear.

Attenzione! Theatere lovers! We have expanded our restrooms onto the street and now we feature six stalls in one large bathroom open to all! A la Ally McBeal! If you weren't able to drink to your heart's content before because you knew the line for bladder relief would be a nightmare, now you and your lady friends can fear no longer, and at the same time no less. You're welcome.

Film fan alert! We are pleased to welcome our chief programmer to the stage! George! When George submitted his resume to us we couldn't deny his storied history of being a big time movie fan's wet dream. George has seen the opening credits to pretty much everything. George's favorite opening credits sequence? That'd be It's a Wonderful Life. If that doesn't score George some bonus points with lady twitter George doesn't know what the hell will. George is two miles away. Run.
