PUTNEY SWOPE & GREASER’S PALACE

Monday, January 21

DOUBLE FEATURE: Two films for one admission. Tickets purchased entitle patrons to stay and see the following film at no additional charge.

PUTNEY SWOPE

4:40   8:10   

(1969, Robert Downey Sr.) It’s time to bring in the soul brothers when African-American Arnold Johnson becomes an ad agency head after everyone gives him that token vote, and the vicious commercial parodies keep on coming, with Face-Off Pimple Cream a stand-out. Among its fans are the Coen Brothers, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, P.T. Anderson, and the Beastie Boys. “Gives a better idea of the jaunty excesses of the late 60s than Hollywood movies of the same period.” – Jonathan Rosenbaum. “A scathing, hugely energetic and scattershot satire.” – The Guardian. “Vicious and vile, the most offensive picture I have ever seen.” – Wanda Hale, New York Daily News. HDCAM. Approx. 84 min.

GREASER’S PALACE   

6:20   9:50

(1972, Robert Downey Sr.) Zoot-suited Allan Arbus parachutes into a Western desert town ruled by perpetually constipated Albert Henderson’s Greaser, and proceeds to raise the dead, cure the sick… is it a Christian allegory? Blessed with an actual million dollar [?!] budget by a benefactor, this was “Downey’s Cleopatra, his Mutiny on the Bounty” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times. New 35mm print. Approx. 91 min.​
