Spectacular special effects were specially designed by Disney to create the world of Tron, a wonderful combination of live action, optical printing and computer effects that has no equal before or since. With Jeff Bridges at his sarcastic best, 80s camp, video game action and beautiful artwork, Tron is one of the most entertaining movies of the era!

Jeff Bridges is a hacker who is abducted into the digital world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games. His only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program named Tron who is rebelling against the system.

Kenneth Anger IN PERSON presenting his lost version of Lucifer Rising with music by Jimmy Page!

This gorgeous 1920s movie palace was closed to the public for decades, now Cinespia presents a dreamy evening beneath cathedral columns, a soaring gold ceiling and the beautiful films of Kenneth Anger on the big screen.

The holy grail of lost films….. In 1973, filmmaker Kenneth Anger and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page joined forces to make a film that was intended to be a ‘magickal working.’ When the film was complete they had a falling out and never spoke again. Although Kenneth later made a different version of the film, the original was thought to be lost forever.

Found deep within the vaults, in a mislabeled box, the print has been rediscovered and restored by Anger collaborator Brian Butler. This version with unseen footage and Page’s music scored to picture has been missing for 30 years, see it screen theatrically for the first time.

This gorgeous 1920s movie palace was closed to the public for decades, now Cinespia presents a dreamy evening beneath cathedral columns, a soaring gold ceiling and the beautiful films of Kenneth Anger on the big screen.

Lucifer Rising with Jimmy Page will be shown with other Anger films from the ‘Magick Lantern Cycle’ a compendium of his greatest short films from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Join us for this once in a lifetime event with one of our greatest living filmmakers. Co-presented by Brian Butler Productions.
