Mansfield 66/67

MANSFIELD 66/67 is about the last two years of movie goddess Jayne Mansfield’s life and the speculation swirling around her untimely death being caused by a curse after her alleged romantic dalliance with Anton LaVey, head of the Church of Satan.

This is a true story…based on rumour and hearsay.

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Jayne Mansfield’s fatal and legendary car crash, yet we still are left to wonder: was her life spinning out of control in the last two years of her life, or…did the devil make her do it?

Even knowing how the story ends, who could resist cheering for Jayne Mansfield (the king-sized over-the-top punked-out Marilyn Monroe who became the ultimate atomic-era sex-kitten-gone-berserk) as she navigates the cultural and spiritual landscape of a quickly changing world in the mid-1960s?

Tom Miller’s Nothing
Nov 13 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Tom Miller's Nothing

Monday, November 13 at 8pm, the Hippodrome will be screening Tom Miller’s NOTHING, a documentary short produced by Mirador Studios, Joey Larson, Doug Waltenbough, and Alex Davidowski (Amish Mafia, Grudge Race). This world premiere is open to the public.

The short feature chronicles the “instillation” of Tom Miller’s infamous Sculpture of Nothing, which appeared at the Bo Diddley Plaza in May and June of 2017. Several famous art critics weigh in, including one who believes that Miller’s sculpture was a totally phony farce. However, another critic hailed the sculpture of Nothing as a movement important as Dadaism, Cubism, and Realism. The movie introduces us to the crew that assembled the sculpture, and features Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe and Alachua County Commission Chair, “Hutch” Hutchinson. Nothing is featured prominently in this production.

Both Mayor Poe and Commissioner Hutchinson have said they will be attending the premiere, which is open to the public.

The Film Stars: Gregg Jones, Tom Miller, Michael O’Meara, Carolyne Salt, Oliver Nordon, Nigel Hamm, The Reverend Angeldust, Mayor Lauren Poe, Commissioner “Hutch” Hutchinson.

Also screening prior to the main event is Tom Miller’s short movie, “Burning Lips”, another documentary chronicling Tom Miller’s epic 2-hour stare-down of former Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz’s mouth, and the subsequent burning of Miller’s demon-possessed Ted Cruz Mouth painting in a giant fire at the Bobbitt Compound. Burning Lips is directed and filmed by Tom Miller and Michael McShane.

During the intermission, and post-reception party, Miller & Davidowski hope to raise additional funds to enter Nothing into film festivals in 2018. They hope Nothing will garner significant attention and perhaps Nothing will win something.

WHERE: The Hippodrome Cinema

WHEN: Monday, November 13th at 8pm (Doors open at 7:30pm)

HOW MUCH: Advance Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased through the Hippodrome Box Office. Tickets will be available at the door for $12.00.
