The Holy Mountain

Saturday, 8/29 at 11:30 pm

”Alejandro Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain is a dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism and exploitation.” - New York Times

The Secret Celluloid Society presents Alejandro Jodorowsky’s bizarre, outrageous, surreal, and completely unique film The Holy Mountain on 35mm at the Gables Cinema on Saturday, August 29 at 11:30 pm. The Holy Mountain is the final installment of our late-night After Hours' series "Summer of 35". Jodorowsky not only directed, but wrote, starred, composed, and designed the film. In a corrupt and greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist (Alejandro Jodorowsky) and a Chirst-like thief (Horacio Salinas) travel with seven wealthy and materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment, immortality and displace the gods who live there. Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times notes, “Jodorowsky loves to confront the viewer with endless brutality and grotesque decadence and degradation, but here he expresses it with a rich, densely visual imagination.” Tickets to this screening are $5 general admission with a free popcorn and can be purchased in advance for Saturday, 8/29 at 11:30 pm here.


The Gables Cinema presents the best films you never saw on the big screen (or maybe you did) from late-night cult classics to foreign favorites and even summer blockbusters every Saturday at 11:30 pm. Tickets include a free popcorn and happy hour. Please note that unclaimed pre-ordered tickets will be sold to the waitline 30 mins after showtime.
