The Mixed Tape Film Series

Photobucket


Created as a way to get Triad residents excited about the great cinematic viewing alternatives taking place in North Carolina, The Mixed Tape Film Series is a love letter to people who enjoy great movies.

Like a mixed tape, the series will feature an eclectic line-up of films, carefully selected by Mike and me. We spent hours drafting and editing this list down to a core of films we think everyone should enjoy a great deal. The best part is that many of these titles are ones that few have had the chance to see on the big screen in 35mm.

So if you're looking for cheap admission, drink specials, and a film retrospective that will never rip you off with crude digital projections of DVDs, check us out. All of our regular screenings take place at the Carousel Luxury Cinemas (1305 Battleground Ave.) on the first Wednesday of every month, plus a special Halloween Double Feature on October 30.

Update: Our screening of The Big Lebowski on September 3rd was a huge success. So much in fact that we had t turn a lot of people away. We're working on an encore screening so stay tuned!

TICKETS:

Yeah but WHEN... you put the dates but not the times? Are they all showing at 6pm? 5pm? 7pm??????

And the main C. Cinemas website doesn't even mention Mixed Tape, so they had no info on the time.

Thanks for the response!

Absent,

The Big Lebowski will be playing at 7:30 & 9:30 p.m.

We didn't list the times on the initial post, because we hadn't ironed that detail out with the theater, yet. We also don't know if we'll be having one screening for every event this year, or just two. That said, we'll always run a screening for the movie at 7:30.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Nice to see Edward Scissorhands pop up on the list. I have fond memories of seeing it in college my Freshmen year at the theater originally. I guess I've outed myself as being old now, huh? Was the Nightmare Before Christmas ever on the short list for Halloween?

Michael,

You did kind of out yourself, but it's okay to be old.

As for Nightmare, it never made it onto our shortlist because it will already be playing at the Carousel anyway. Disney has set about re-releasing the film in 3-D for the last two years in a row and plan on doing the same this year. Better yet, this year's release will come packaged with a 3-D version of Tim Burton's original stop-motion short Vincent.

And if you haven't watched Monster Squad before, it's definitely a must see. No less an homage to classic horror films than Nightmare, in my opinion.

I made it out to Edward Scissorhands earlier this week, and just wanted to say thanks for doing this little film festival...event..thingy. I missed seeing it on the silver screen back in 1990, and always regretted it.

Keep up the good work, and if you guys can acquire and show Ghostbusters in the somewhat near future I'll literally squeal with delight!

Any truth to a rumor that the original Transformers movie is coming up?

3:53 PM  
Blogger Joe Scott said...

There is truth. 7:30 & 9:30 p.m. at the Carousel Luxury Cinemas.

Tix are $4, and will go on sale at ACME Comics on May 2 (Free Comic Book Day) starting at 10 a.m.

Will have a post about this tomorrow morning.
