VOLUNTEER PROGRAMMERS

September 2019 - May 2020 at the Trylon

The Trylon would not exist without its volunteers. Now, to help celebrate our tenth anniversary, we’re saying thanks by letting them choose the films they’ve long wanted us to show. Screenings will be every other Thursday through May 2020. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

RIGHTING WRONGS (AKA ABOVE THE LAW)

(1986, 35mm, 85m) dir Corey Yuen w/Biao Yuen, Cynthia Rothrock, Melvin Wong. Over the course of 7 years I watched hundreds of Hong Kong films thanks to Asian Media Access and their “Cinema With Passion” series. Every week brought a new cinematic surprise. Some of the movies were amazing, some confounding, very few were boring. Nothing has had a bigger impact on my filmgoing taste. As a tribute to Asian Media Access I’m picked one of the first movies I…

THE THING

(1982, 35mm, 109m) dir John Carpenter w/Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David. Trylon has shown pretty much all of my favorites throughout the years (shout out to our wonderful programmers!). My pick has been shown at our theater before, but I love it so much I thought it worth screening again. I have a deep love for a good monster movie- necessary ingredients include an interesting monster with rules and logic to its threat and behaviors, and well-done practical effects.…

CURE

(1997, 35mm, 111m) dir Kiyoshi Kurosawa w/Koji Yakusho, Masato Hagiwara, Tsuyoshi Ujiki. "Cure has all the elements that I love: subversive genre, existential doom, social allegory, shadowy color palette, methodical pacing and blissful ambiguity!” Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s breakout film, pits a world-weary detective (Yakusho) against an elusive serial killer. But as the victims start to add up and the perpetrators lack any memory of committing murder, it becomes clear that darker forces are at work on Tokyo’s streets. -Kathie Smith, volunteer…
