Cable Car Cinema
What can we say — thank you Cable Car Cinema for your years of innovative programming and community involvement. We will all miss the theater with the couches and the unusual movie schedule (many of my faves featured music — from Rodriguez and Nick Cave to Hildegard von Bingen and Black Sabbath) but the café
Sad sad news. Word has spread quickly that after 42 years in business the Cable Car Cinema and Café will soon be closing its doors forever. Last night, owners Dan Kamil and Emily Steffian announced the closing in “A Letter to the Friends, Fans, and Long-Time Customers of the Cable Car Cinema” explaining, We did

Held over through the holiday weekend is “The Wolfpack” the true story of six brothers, locked up for years in their Manhattan apartment, who animated their circumscribed lives getting inside
I can not wait for this one. The Wrecking Crew was a group of studio musicians in Los Angeles in the 60s who played on hits for the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny and Cher, Jan and Dean, the Monkees, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Mamas and Papas, Tijuana Brass, Ricky Nelson, and
Just this once I am going to break our long-standing rule against writing up Kickstarter campaigns; and I’m pretty sure I’m the one who came up with that rule, so there may be some tension in the lunchroom today. When crowd funding first arrived on the scene, our inbox rapidly filled up with requests for
Tonight is the last night (sorry for misstating this earlier, and missing its start) of the horror film The Innkeepers (Thursday, February 9 at 10:30pm). You probably already know whether or not you are seeing this deliberately paced Ti West haunted hotel movie. Viewing has become kind of a thang in New York City —
Much of the work done at the Cable Car Cinema last summer is hidden behind the walls, and we don’t have a picture of that. But check out the new murals by artist and photographer Buck Hastings. Very surreal ‘Attack of the 50-foot Woman’ meets the Providence Preservation Society’s Most Endangered Buildings sort of thing.
Once upon a time moviegoers always got a short film before the main feature. Theater owners soon figured out that they could have more showtimes and make more money without them. It’s a pity because they can be wonderful. So it’s really great that the Cable Car Cinema is running a mini-festival of sorts so
The Cable Car is cranking up a late-night weekend of horror starting tonight Friday at 11pm with Ice Cream Sunday. This will be followed at about 11:30pm by Frank Henenlotter’s Bad Biology about a guy and this girl . . . Unfortunately, they eventually meet, and the bonding of these two very unusual human beings
On Monday the boyfriend and I went to the Cable Car to see Guest of Cindy Sherman, Paul H-O’s documentary about his relationship with the legendary photographer. In the early nineties, H-O ran a public access show in New York called Gallery Beat, where he and a couple of other people would go to openings
We’re just one week away from Connect Providence’s Red Carpet World Premiere of The People’s Confessions — the results of the video confessionals taken at I HEART PROVIDENCE in City Hall last month. This event is free and open to the public. Our 5-Step Approach to Pleasure 1. Mingle with our Connect Providence and GET

As usual, things are going down at the Cable Car and run February 19th through March 1st. Tickets are $8.50 (students $6.50), with discounts available for buying in bulk.
If you blinked you missed the first run of this movie but it’s coming back to the Cable Car Cinema, “The Theater With the Couches”. You pretty much know by now whether you like Gus Van Sant movies, and I do. This is the same ol’ youth, longing and death (now with 30% more skateboarding!).
