7:00pm MILK (2008) — 10th Anniversary
Directed by Gus Van Sant, Written by Dustin Lance Black

MILK is the true life story of Harvey Milk, the legendary Gay Rights activist, who upon being elected to San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors in 1977, became the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in America. Winning two Oscars: Best Actor by Sean Penn as Harvey Milk and Dustin Lance Black for Best Original Screenplay, director Gus Van Sant combines his unique mockumentary techniques with memorably nuanced performances by Josh Brolin as Dan White, James Franco as Scott Smith and Alison Pill as Anne Kroneneberg. Rated R. Running Time: 128 min. Original 35mm print. Preceded by trailers of other Gus Van Sant films.

9:30pm MALA NOCHE (1985) — 30th Anniversary
Written & Directed by Gus Van Sant

Completed in 1985, but not released until 1988, come celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Gus Van Sant's rarely screened debut in 35mm! Set in Van Sant’s hometown of Portland, Oregon, the lush black and white cinematography captures a world of transient workers, dead-end day-shifters, run down bars and seedy apartments bathed in a profound nighttime glow. Shot for $25,000, this low budget experimental feature follows a romantic deadbeat with a wayward crush on a handsome Mexican immigrant. Heralded an idiosyncratic, provocative new voice in American independent film, MALA NOCHE is an important precursor to the New Queer Cinema of the 1990s and is a fascinating capsule from a time and place that continues to haunt its director’s work. Running time: 78 min. Newly struck 35mm print courtesy of Janus Films. Preceded by trailers of New Queer Cinema films.
