Secret Cinema: 35mm Rarities

February 1, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Event Navigation

On Thursday, February 1, the Secret Cinema will return to the Bryn Mawr 
Film Institute with hidden treasures from the rarely-seen 35mm section 
of the Secret Cinema archives — many of which can not be seen anywhere 

The program, named THE SECRET SECRET CINEMA, is a multi-genre pop 
culture mash-up of forgotten advertising films, theatrical short 
subjects, clips and trailers. 

Some highlights are: LA DANSE A GO GO, a 1964 short about twisting 
discotheque go-go dancers; A TOUCH OF MAGIC, a surreal Technicolor 
musical promoting Populuxe cars and kitchens; MEXICAN RHYTHM, a 1953 
one-reeler starring “Mexico’s Jazz King” Luis Arcaraz; network TV 
promos; ads for long-gone local businesses; and original previews for 
such offbeat classics as GROUPIES, HELLS ANGELS ’69, BUMMER, MONDO 
MOD…and much more! 

This program is suggested for mature audiences (though immature adults 
are welcome also). 

There will be one complete show at 7:30 pm. Admission is  $12.50, $6.50 
(BMFI members), $10 (seniors and students).
