35 mm!

FLASH GORDON
1980, Universal, 111 min, France/USA, Dir: Mike Hodges

Like the early-1930s serial, director Mike Hodges’ FLASH is surprisingly faithful to Alex Raymond’s original comic strip, with just the right balance of action, tongue-in-cheek humor and mind-blowing production design (here courtesy of wizard Danilo Donati), with a score by none other than Queen! Relative unknowns Sam J. Jones and Melody Anderson play Flash and Dale, but the supporting cast is full of heavyweights, including Max Von Sydow as Ming, Topol as Dr. Zarkov and Ornella Muti as Aura, as well as Lina Wertmuller favorite Mariangela Melato (SWEPT AWAY) and future James Bond Timothy Dalton.


West Coast Premiere!

LIFE AFTER FLASH
2017, AMP International, 94 min, UK, Dir: Lisa Downs

This feature documentary explores the life of Sam J Jones since his iconic performance in the title role of the 1980 classic FLASH GORDON, and the aftermath of the young star’s clash with one of Hollywood's biggest legends, producer Dino De Laurentiis. LIFE AFTER FLASH is an inspiring and moving film that celebrates what makes Mike Hodges’ enduring sci-fi classic so iconic with audiences to this day and looks at the real man behind the heroic mask: his successes, his battles and his ultimate struggle for redemption.
