9/10- Night on Earth (1991)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Five cities. Five taxicabs. A multitude of strangers in the night. Jim Jarmusch assembled an extraordinary international cast of actors (including Gena Rowlands, Winona Ryder, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Beatrice Dalle, and Roberto Benigni) for this hilarious quintet of tales of urban displacement and existential angst, spanning time zones, continents, and languages. Jarmusch's lovingly askew view of humanity from the passenger seat makes for one of his most charming and beloved films.

9/17- Rock n Roll High School (1979)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Happy 40th anniversary to one of the best rock movies of all time! The Ramones never got the recognition they deserved, at least as far as album sales. The band that more or less invented punk was always bitter that the Blink 182s and Green Days that ripped their sound hit the superstar highway while they got stuck on the F train, with no AC. But no one's more respected, and this killer 70's high school tale-of-a-movie is a key piece of the Ramones legend.The Ramones thought of themselves as a pop band in the early sixties mold, before the hippie excess, so when legendary shlockmeister Roger Corman went looking to update his "youth gone wild" rock-and-roll B movies for the seventies, they were a perfect fit. Call it Punk Rock Around the Clock. (Think about this for a second: the first idea was Disco High.)The idea of a classic B rock movie crossed with the godfathers of punk is inspired. It's also kind of subversive, rolling the Ramones into the old cycle of Elvis movies and A Hard Day's Night without ever acknowledging that their songs were about sniffing glue and turning tricks. But it's also silly, goofy fun, with running sight gags (think exploding lab rats) and some of the funniest bad band acting since KISS Meets the Phantom of the Theme Park. After 22 years and more than two thousand shows, the Ramones finally hung it up in 1996, and were eventually inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, but you can still go to Rock n Roll High School.

9/24- Clue (1985)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

The year is 1954. Six strangers are invited to a dinner party at a secluded New England mansion, known as Hill House. None of the guests are sure of why they are there, but as dead bodies begin to pile up everyone suddenly becomes a suspect. When it was released back in 1985, Clue was met with mixed reviews and a lackluster turnout in theaters. The movie is based on the popular board game, and in keeping with the structure of the game, the film had three possible endings depending on which theater you went to. This clever concept has turned Clue into somewhat of a cult hit today. Now we're not saying Clue is the greatest murder mystery of all time, but it is one of those movies that gets better the more you watch it. Repeated viewings give you a chance to study the logistics of each murder, as well as the relationships of the delightful characters who are secretly in cahoots with one another. It's a good bit of fun, and the idea of being trapped in a secluded mansion during a thunderstorm makes it prime viewing on a stormy night.
