Celebrity Day at the Lamb

We celebrated Ralph McQuarrie's 80th birthday yesterday, with an amazing group of Ralph's friends and fans in attendance.

With the projector back up and running we're on track for the remainder of the Pick Your Poison series starting this Wednesday. Mikk's up next, to be followed by Stan and Michael in the week's ahead.

Also, don't forget that the Mad Movie Party returns this Saturday with a salute to Ed Wood on the 50th anniversary of the release of his classic Plan 9 From Outer Space. Hope to see you there!

40 Years, 40 Movies

The 40 Years, 40 Movies schedule for next January has been posted.

Beginning on Friday, January 1st and running through Saturday, January 30th, The Slaughtered Lamb Cinema brings you an eclectic line-up of films in our largest screening program to date.

Opening ceremonies will take place on:
1/1 Star Wars Marathon
1/2 Indiana Jones Marathon

The remainder of the month is scheduled as follows:
Sundays - NO screenings
Monday Night Laughs
Tuesday Night Horrors
Wednesday Night Epics
Thursday Night Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Friday Night Crime
Saturday Double Bills (and the monthly Mad Movie Party)

The closing event is a special double feature on 1/30 of Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and David Lynch's Mulholland Drive.

You can view the entire line-up by clicking on the Calendar link, viewing by month, and advancing to January 2010. Plan your schedule now for the screenings you'd like to attend. It was more difficult than you might imagine narrowing the list to just 40 films. In an effort to offer the greatest variety for this unique series, we frequently opted not to show films that we have recently screened in The Slaughtered Lamb, as important as those films might be. Rest assured we give every film in this series our highest recommendation, so it's a great opportunity to introduce yourself to some gems you may not have seen before on the big screen.

David Carradine 1936-2009

I apologize for our current inability to fast track a Kill Bill double feature in his memory at this time. We'll work on getting that scheduled as soon as Theater 'A' has re-opened.

A packed house for The Last of Sheila

Theater 'B' was at capacity for Martin's Pick Your Poison screening of The Last of Sheila.

We started off with a pair of trailers from two other features from 1973: Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon and The Exorcist.

The Last of Sheila is a fun little murder mystery with an all-star cast including James Coburn, Raquel Welch, Richard Benjamin, and an unrecognizable Ian McShane.

The plot had everyone guessing right to the very end.

To complement the film's Mediterranean setting, Vonna prepared a full-on Mediterranean feast that was enjoyed by all.

Next on tap - Michael will Pick Our Poison.

Theater 'A' Closed for Repairs

We hope to have Theater A back up and running by next Wednesday, but the show must go on, so we're running Martin's Pick Your Poison in the Slaughtered Lamb Theater 'B' tomorrow. Mikk's presentation has been rescheduled to show on the big screen in Martin's slot in two weeks.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we get the projector repaired.
