GOING ATTRACTIONS: THE DEFINITIVE STORY OF THE AMERICAN DRIVE-IN MOVIE
2013, 85 min, USA, Dir: April Wright

Two of America’s greatest loves - cars and movies - intersect at drive-in theaters; in the years following World War II, thousands of them spread across the country. Though the popularity of drive-ins began to decline in the late 1960s, a few hundred still remain, and this new documentary explores the enduring appeal of watching films under the stars.


50th Anniversary!

DEMENTIA 13
1963, Park Circus/MGM, 75 min, USA, Dir: Francis Ford Coppola

Director Francis Ford Coppola’s low-budget feature debut was one of the few pictures to effectively meld a contemporary PSYCHO-type scenario with Gothic horror motifs. When John dies of a heart attack, his wife Louise (Luana Anders) knows she won’t get any part of his mother’s inheritance if the family finds out he’s dead. She travels to the family castle in Ireland to finagle her way into a fortune, but must deal with John’s artist brother (William Campbell), his new wife (Mary Mitchel), younger brother Billy (Bart Patton) and a still-alive matriarch. Then someone starts chopping people up with an ax! Fast-moving, with a memorably great score by Ronald Stein and an uncredited Les Baxter. Produced by Roger Corman. “Francis Ford Coppola's first mainstream feature…is a little gem of Gothic horror, stylishly helmed on a shoestring budget.” - TV Guide
