Magic Lantern At The Cable Car

Magic Lantern Cinema (11.16) The Magic Lantern Cinema series has been going on for a few years now; tonight’s show — The Artificial Nature Show: Artificial Depictions of Nature in the Moving Pictures — has been curated by the good people at Acme Video.

Does a squirrel know what a movie is? We at Acme Video wish they did so they would come in and rent something sometime. It is an absolute thrill for us to be guest curating a Magic Lantern for which we have dug deep into our catacombs to bring to light some real cinematic oddities. The idea of “artificial depictions of nature in the moving pictures” seems to epitomize a conflict between the world that we actually live in and the world we choose to create when given the chance. Not to mention that it is a rather malleable postulate that provides us with a great excuse to show some pretty weird, often humorous and sometimes disturbing films you may not have seen before.

So what exactly is the Magic Lantern Screening Series? Too hard . . . just click here.

$5, 9:30, Wednesday, November 16, Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, 272.3970
