Nightletter, located in West Philadelphia, has announced its new slate of bi-weekly film screenings. The microcinema style screening series focuses on independent, foreign, experimental, and political films. Nightletter has striven to be a new cinema experience after multiple Philadelphia theaters have closed in recent years, including the impending sale of the International House Philadelphia.
The next screening will occur on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 at 7:30pm of Bruce LaBruce’s No Skin Off My Ass programmed by Max Bienstock. The 1990s queer punk classic reinvents Robert Altman’s That Cold Day in the Parkin a gay context with LaBruce himself playing a hairdresser who attempts to stop a mute punk from denying his gay identity by taking on a skinhead persona.
Andy Warhol’s classic film Poor Little Rich Girl, one of his first collaborations with his favorite superstar Edie Sedgwick will screen Friday, September 6th on a 16mm print. The film is an under-seen classic and will be screened on a newly minted print.
On September 18th, Jesse Pires, curator of the Lightbox Film Center at International House Philadelphia will present a curated program entitled “If There’s Been A Way To Build It, There’ll Be A Way To Destroy It,” of short experimental films set locally in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that explore simultaneously the freedom of exploration and environmental disaster brought on my cars.
