Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St.

ELEVEN P.M. A slow delta blues song realized by David Lynch may be the best way to describe this wholly unique and cinematically innovative drama from 1928 (or 1929 or 1930; as with the film’s meaning, the year of release is something of a mystery). A poor street violinist, Sundaisy (played by Writer/Director Richard Maurice), pledges to protect an orphan from preying small-time hoodlums only to fall victim to his own naiveté. A surreal melodrama that may or may not…

Part of the BACinema’s Ominous October One of the finest works of German Expressionism and a crash course in both Halloween costumes and copyright law, Nosferatu is still a plague, in the best possible way, that spawned all future vampire films. Tasked with closing the deal on an expensive property purchased by a mysterious and reclusive buyer, Jonathan Harker rides deep in to Transylvania to visit Count Orlock at his castle—only to realize that his buyer is a fabled undead…

BACinema: Coco`

COCO A family holiday movie, but not the type you’re used to seeing. A tearjerker that comes with a lot of ghosts and skeletons. Coco is both of these movies. It’s a standout achievement from Pixar that explores the mythology surrounding the Dia De Los Muertos holiday of early November through the story of Miguel, who, aspiring to be a musician like his idol, Ernesto De La Cruz, manages to accidentally transport himself to the land of the dead. It…

BACinema: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles John Hughes (1950-2009) was the quintessential Chicago filmmaker, a writer-director who explored the nuances of the Chicagoland area and the character of its people like no other. Though he’s also known for his whimsical stories of teenage misfits and screwballs, his masterpiece as a director (in this film programmer’s humble opinion) is likely Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), a screwball comedy for people from all walks of life, but especially adults in the throes of a…

BACinema: Happy Christmas

December 18 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St.
Chicago, 60655

Happy Christmas A truly contemporary Christmas movie must have a few specific bells and whistles: elaborate jokes about 50 Shades of Gray, drunken misadventures, plenty of cell phone usage and Lena Dunham. Prolific Chicago Writer-Director Joe Swanberg’s (creator of Netflix’s Easy) 2014 feature has all those, but they all take a backseat to a story about family bonds and growing up (or trying to). Anna Kendrick plays Jenny, a twenty-something reeling from a Christmas season breakup, who moves in with…
