Tony Buba’s first feature, Lightning Over Braddock - which established him as an innovator of the “exploded documentary” - is as eccentric a picture of America.

Like Buba’s earlier short films, it chronicles the decline of Braddock, Pennsylvania, the hard-luck town which once flourished as “Pittsburgh’s shopping center.”

Available to watch at home through Oct. 1 via Row House Online.

Row House Drive-In Cinema – The Never Ending Story

Local documentary Struggles In Steel (1996) retraces a century of black industrial history.

Through eloquent living witnesses and revelatory archival footage, it presents a striking counterpoint to stereotypes that still pervade our culture today.

Watch it at home through Oct. 1 on Row House Online. Half of the ticket sales will benefit the Braddock Library Association, via a donation by filmmaker Tony Buba.

09/22/2020

In Lightning Over Braddock, filmmaker Tony Buba plays himself and tries, without much success, to make a movie with a crazy street hustler named Sal, who considers himself responsible for Buba’s (modest) success.

Piecing together real and scripted footage, the pseudo-documentary presents an alternately deadpan and incisive portrait of the grim flipside to Reagan-era optimism.

Struggles In Steel (1996) is a documentary that features interviews with more than 70 retired Black steelworkers who tell heart-rending tales of struggles with the company, the union, and white co-workers.

Watch it at home via Row House Online through October 1, and half of the ticket sale will go to the Braddock Library Association as a donation from director Tony Buba.

Lightning Over Braddock, Tony Buba’s magnum opus, might have its tongue in its cheek, but its heart is always firmly in the right place.

Like Errol Morris, Buba has a fascination with the idiosyncratic details of daily life, and uses his formidable sense of humor to document the decay of industrial America.

One of the great psychedelic masterpieces of world animation, Hungarian animator Marcell Jankovics’s SON OF THE WHITE MARE (1981) is a swirling, color-mad tale of mythic monsters and Scythian heroes -- part-epic, part-Yellow Submarine -- styled by jagged bolts of lightning and drenched in rivers of blue, red, gold and green.

Best theater ever. ❤️ Can't wait to come visit when you open again. ❤️🍿
Point break 1991 plis Mexico cdmx
Does any amount of the purchase go towards the employees that would be operating the cinema on a day-to-day basis?
You know what would be fun, as no one's done it before (to my knowledge)? Getting folks together for a one-off shadowcast performance of "Sleepaway Camp." I'm sure I could easily find volunteers in the area familiar with the movie! :) Schedule permitting, as well, I could possibly even look into getting 'Angela' to appear as herself.
Have you thought of getting Ted Neeley to bring his travelling Q&A tour of "Jesus Christ Superstar"? :)
Thanks so much for including "Seven Samurai" in samurai week. It's one of my favorite movies of all time, and it's wonderful to see it on the big screen. I hope you'll have another samurai week soon!
If you are open to recommendations, I suggest that you guys do a sh*tty Nicholas Cage movie week; like Wicker Man, Bangkok Dangerous, Left Behind, Ghost Rider/sequel, etc.

Very cozy and great employees... love the theater had alot of fun with my family
Love it
