Out of the Blue

Saturday, December 9

“Thumbs up! A bitter unforgettable poem about alienation. One of the unsung treasures among recent independent films.”
—Roger Ebert

“Brutally good! Linda Manz is superb.”
—Bill Kaufman, Newsday

4K Restoration / Florida Theatrical Premiere

This screening of Out of the Blue will be preceded by a pre-recorded introduction by Julian Schnabel, John Alan Simon, Elizabeth Karr and Brian Cox.

Don Barnes (Hopper) is a truck driver in prison for drunkenly smashing his rig into a school bus. Linda Manz (Days of Heaven) plays CeBe, his daughter, a young teen rebel and outsider obsessed with Elvis and the Sex Pistols. Her mother Kathy (Sharon Farrell), a waitress, shoots up drugs and takes refuge in the arms of other men, including her husband’s best friend, Charlie (Don Gordon). CeBe runs away to Vancouver’s punk scene and ends up on juvenile probation under the care of well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Brean (Raymond Burr). After Don’s release, the family struggles to reconnect and start over before the revelation of dark secrets leads to a harrowing conclusion.

Chloë Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne helped support the restoration, which was made from the original 35mm camera negative with sound from the original 3-track magnetic master. The film premiered in competition at the 76th Venice Film Festival.

After Hours is 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 on weekends. Please note that unclaimed pre-ordered tickets will be sold to the rush line 30 mins after showtime.
