Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 117: Thursday Apr 26

The choice tonight is so good I can't decide so TAKE YOUR PICK from:

1 Suspiria (Argento, 1976): BFI Southbank, NFT1 9pm

To be more precise, Sonic Cinema: Dario Argento's horror masterpiece Suspiria, reimagined with exclusive live soundtrack from producer and DJ Fake Blood.
Here is the BFI introduction to the evening: Sonic Cinema continues with Dario Argento's 1977 horror masterpiece re-imagined with an exclusive live soundtrack from producer and DJ Fake Blood. While making his name in electronic music as Wiseguys, Black Ghosts, and in his current incarnation as a house and techno superstar, Theo Keating has always been a crate digger extraordinaire. A selection of library music rarities, esoteric electronic music and some of his own compositions will accompan the stunning cinematography of this cult classic.

2 The Call of Cthulu (Leman, 2005) & The Dunwich Horror (Haller, 1960):
Roxy Bar & Screen, London Bridge, 7pm

This is a FilmBar70 H.P. Lovecraft double-bill. Here is the film club's introduction to the evening: Filmbar plunges into the abyssinian abyss to celebrate the poet laureate of shizodelic horror himself – H. P. Lovecraft. Witness unspeakable horrors conjured from unfathomable voids as we screen the only two true adaptations of his work, the meticulous and lovingly fan crafted The Call of Cthulhu and the Corman produced The Dunwich Horror – a Seventies pyschriot that equates Lovecraft's 'otherness' with the uncontrollable eruption of the permissive age. 
Here is FilmBar70's Facebook page with more details and this is the fabulous trailer.

3 Mean Girls (Waters, 2004): Stratford Picturehouse, 8pm
Here is the Picturehouse introduction to the evening: In every programme period we invite a blogger/podcaster/general film-nut to pick a film and present it to the audience. Before Rachel McAdams worked with Woody Allen, before Tina Fey created 30 Rock, before Amanda Seyfried sang ABBA songs and way before Lindsay Lohan sank low enough to star in I KNOW WHO KILLED ME, a magical alignment of the stars occurred in 2004 when Paramount Pictures green-lit a little teen move we know today as MEAN GIRLS. See it presented in all its glory, with an intro from the lovely Sam Cuthbert (you can find him on Twitter @OffTheCuth).

4 Forbidden Zone (Elfman, 1982):
The Montpelier, 43 Choumert Road, Peckham, London, SE15 4AR. 8.30pm FREE

Here is the Days Are Number film club introduction to the evening: Yes that’s right, folks! For our next trick, Days Are Numbers will fearlessly lead you into the heart of the Forbidden Zone thanks to our mucho-exciting screening of Richard Elfman’s riotously salacious cult classic, erm, Forbidden Zone. Days Are Numbers do the greatest trailers. Here's the one for this evening.
