The main feature of the night is the 1997 psycho-theoretical Japanese art-house thriller, Cure, by Kurosawa Kyoshi — a nice prelude to the upcoming Halloween season. Prior to this, we will be screening a short piece by Sean Patrick himself (the man in Texas behind all the amazing posters) as well as a rare screening of Space Water Onion, Paul Yates’ thesis film from SUNY Purchase, featuring his friend Richard Hall before he became international techno rock-star known as Moby. This night is one not to be missed.

  2. This notorious horror parody – a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things – tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite vampire Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry). The film – a bizarre musical co-starring Meat Loaf andRichard O’Brien – bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.

  2. The Radiant Sun, directed by Michigan filmmaker Terri Sarris and co-produced by Sarris and University of Maryland Associate Professor of Architecture Ronit Eisenbach, chronicles the life and work of designer Ruth Adler Schnee and the challenges she faced as a female architectural designer in the second half of the twentieth century. Now in her 80s and living in Michigan, where she designs woven textiles for Anzea, Schnee, and her husband, Edward Schnee, were important figures in bringing the mid-century modernist movement to Michigan. A discussion with Ruth Adler Schnee and the film’s producers will follow the screening. A selection of Ms. Schnee’s textiles will be on view in UMMA’s display cases adjacent to the Helmut Stern Auditorium.
