Movie Loft presents
Black Cat, White Cat
Stacks Image 9060
Movie Loft warms up in February with a screening of the rambunctious joy that is Emir Kustirica's 1998 comedy Black Cat, White Cat. Set in Serbia and by the Danube, this rambling and frenetic tale is chock full of wild characters and situations, incredible music, and a pig that eats a car.

A farce about a business deal gone wrong, an arranged marriage, old friends, endless animals, gangsters, romance, gypsies, a funeral, and so much more, Kustirica's follow up to Underground is nothing short of a giddy experience. The best capsule review we found was "It is as though Four Weddings And A Funeral had been reimagined by Fellini with a cast of crazy Balkan rogues and a background chorus of farmyard animals."

Regional folk and dance music of yore will be spun before and after, and there might even be a live music situation (to be confirmed, soon!). Records and hot dogs starting at 7, movie rolling at 8!

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
