The Young Girls of Rochefort

Saturday, Sept. 23

Come join us for Hippodrome Cinema’s next Cocktails & Classics screening – “The Young Girls Of Rochefort.”

“The Young Girls of Rochefort” — Jacques Demy’s follow-up to his 1964 musical “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” — stars real-life sisters Catherine Deneuve and the late Françoise Dorléac as twins from the small French town of Rochefort. Giving dance and music lessons to the local children is not enough for the two young women, who both dream of getting out of the small town and finding love and fortune in a big city like Paris.

Taking place over the one weekend that a fair comes to town, the romantic comedy revolves around dreams of the ideal lover and missed encounters. As an American songwriter who becomes enamored with Dorléac’s character, Gene Kelly (whose singing is dubbed) is comfortable with the jazzy and infectious music and choreography.

The film also stars George Chakiris as one of the performers in the fair and Michel Piccoli as the twins’ mother’s lost love.  With smart and humorous lyrics by Demy himself, The Young Girls of Rochefort is an intelligent homage to the American musical tradition from a modern French perspective (look closely for odes to films like An American in Paris and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). In its sunny and ethereal quality, the film constructs a joyous and colorful world seldom seen in the later Hollywood musicals.Join us at the Hippodrome for a catered cocktail reception in the Bar and Art Gallery at 7:30 p.m.  Appetizers will be catered by Dragonfly and themed cocktails will be available. This film will follow the reception in the Cinema at 8:00 p.m.

7:30 p.m. (reception) | The film begins at 8:00 p.m.

The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokone’s dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her father’s disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokone’s family.

From director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Eden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of today’s world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.

Black Sabbath: The End of the End

“Black Sabbath: The End of the End”
ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Sept. 28 | 7:30 p.m
$12 tickets“The End of the End” chronicles the final tour of the band that forged the sound of metal, the one and only – Black Sabbath. On Feb. 4, the band took to the stage in Birmingham, England, to play the 81st and final gig of “The End Tour,” bringing down the curtain on a career that spanned nearly half a century. The sold-out show marked the culmination of a tour to more than a million fans in arenas across the globe. Since the band’s beginnings in 1968, Black Sabbath created the sound that would form the basis of heavy metal, going on to influence bands all over the world – an influence that is still felt to this day.

“The End of the End” is the story of that final, emotionally-charged concert. Fans are taken into the heart of the action, up close and personal with the band as the members perform genre-defining hits, from “Iron Man” to “Paranoid” to “War Pigs,” among others. Black Sabbath took the opportunity to spend time in the studio, delivering a unique performance of some of their favorite songs. This film gives fans an intimate glimpse into the band members’ relationships and banter with each other, including both individual and group recollections from Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler.

The band’s loyal following spans generations and this is an opportunity for fans, young and old, to come together and see Black Sabbath doing what they do best, almost 50 years after they started. This is the final word from the greatest metal band of all time.

A daringly original biopic, “Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters,” flashes back to the famous gay novelist/movie-star’s suicidal assault on a Japanese army camp. Between minimal black-and-white episodes of Mishima’s earlier life and colorful dramatizations of scenes from three of his novels, this movie attempts to come to grips with the public and private faces of a real-life character, finally reflecting more upon the neurosis and drives of its creator than its subject. Writer of “Taxi Driver” and “Raging Bull,” Paul Schrader directed obsessive-puritanical philosophizing is at its purest here, as he channels his usual concerns into a meditation on Mishima’s tussles with love, death, honor and the spirit.

The night after the premiere of “Mishima,” a competitor for the prestigious “Palme d’Or” at the Cannes Film Festival in 1985, the film was well-received, and won an overall award for “Best Artistic Contribution.” But, Schrader knew better than anyone that its chances at the American box office were slim. He observed that his co-producers, Francis Coppola and George Lucas, raised $10 million, “with no hope of getting it back.”

“Mishima” is an exceptional, original movie, ravishingly shot and with a hauntingly brilliant Philip Glass score.

The Atlantic / Arcade Bar/ and Hippodrome Cinema presents
An evening of costumes, drinks, film, and music to celebrate the Goblin King! 

Witness the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust… er, sort of. In director Todd Haynes’s ode to the glam era, Christian Bale plays Arthur Stuart, a Brit reporter in 1984 New York begrudgingly tasked by his editor to do a “Where are they Now” piece on Brian Slade, a glittery, androgynous Bowie-esque glam superstar. Slade dominated the charts in 1974, only to mysteriously disappear from the limelight completely after staging his own on-stage “assassination.”

Through flashbacks to his own turbulent adolescent days as a glam fanboy and interviews with those who knew Slade, Arthur pieces together some of the mystery of who Slade was and what he might be up to now. Much like his more critically and commercially successful homage to Dylan, 2007’s I’M NOT THERE, Haynes masterfully blurs fact and legend, people and personas, into one fantastic cinematic mash. Sure, the history is dubious (Bowie certainly thought so and sadly refused to let his music be used), but that’s totally beside the point: his vision of the era is so completely captivating it’s bound to leave a little glitter on your collar.
