As Homura continues to feel the loneliness that has built up since her seperation from Madoka, something mysterious happens, as Madoka, who shouldn’t exist in this new world, and Sayaka, who had disappeared after exhausting her magical energy, suddenly appear. Behind this mysterious appearance is a new magical girl named Nagisa Momoe and a new being fighting against God’s existence.

Bettie Page Exits the Guild

Bettie Page Reveals All at the Guild Cinema

Monday, December 16 – 4:45 & 8:00 pm

Directed by Mark Mori – 1999 – 101m.

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori’s Bettie Page Reveals All is an intimate look at one of the world’s most recognized sex symbols, featuring Bettie Page herself telling her story for the first time in her own words.

In Mori’s documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via interviews Mori taped a decade prior to her death in 2008.  With earthy, razor sharp wit, Bettie tells her life story — from humble beginnings as one of six children born to an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to her career as a scandalous 50s pin-up model.  The film also uncovers previously unknown details about Bettie’s many torrid affairs, told from both her and her lovers’ perspectives. We follow her story through her sudden retirement at the peak of her modeling career in 1957, and discover a strange tale of decades of broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness, before ultimately resurfacing in the public eye in the early 90’s, unaware of her cult status.

With a stunning array of photographs, archival material and movie footage, Bettie Page Reveals All shows how Page’s unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses set the stage for the 1960s sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion. The film definitively demonstrates why, for stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce, and for new generations of fans, Bettie remains an irresistible style icon.  Revealingly, Forbes in 2012 listed her as one of the top ten posthumous celebrity earners.

“Fascinating! A humanizing portrait of a sex-positive feminist before the classification even existed.” – Hubert Vigilla, Flixist

“An intimate look at the rise and fall of one of the world’s most recognized and controversial sex symbols.” – Robin Leach, Las Vegas Sun

Iron Giant Ends Reign at Guild

Sunday, November 24 – 11:00 am & 1:00 pm

Directed by Brad Bird – 1999 – 86m.
A Mom’s Matinee Presentation – All seats just $5.00

This gentle reworking of Ted Hughes’s 1968 novella was the unseen gem of 1999. It’s directed by Brad Bird, who would go on to work for Pixar on The Incredibles and more!
Hogarth, a young boy who lives in the Maine woods during the cold war, befriends a giant robot. As with E.T., the iron giant is a misunderstood outsider who becomes a child’s best friend, and Hogarth does his best to hide the massive figure from his mom (voiced by Jennifer Aniston) and the local scrap-yard beatnik (Harry Connick Jr.). Soon the suspicions of neighbors and a government agent (Christopher McDonald) spell trouble.

With no songs, no sidekicks and no cheap ending, The Iron Giant is a refreshing change.

Directed by Katie Graham & Andrew Matthews – 2013 – 97m.
An Alibi Midnight Madness Presentation – All seats $8.00, cash only
Door Prizes courtesy of Stranger Factory and Bubonicon 46

As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip — along with everything else in his life — when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.

“Almost certainly, the best nerd movie ever.” – Badass Digest

“Geniunely hilarious and painfully relatable.” – Collider

“The One True Nerd Movie… No other film nails the emotions of being a hardcore nerd like Zero Charisma.” – /Film

“Divine” Documentary at Guild

I Am Divine at the Guild Cinema

Friday-Sunday, November 8-10 – 4:30 & 6:30 pm daily

Directed by Jeffrey Schwarz – 2013 – 85m.

 “Divine was my close friend and fearless muse. Who else could convincingly turn from teenage delinquent to mugger, prostitute, unwed mother, child abuser, fashion model, nightclub entertainer, murderess, and jailbird? All in the same movie? That’s why I am giving my full blessing to a new documentary feature film, I Am Divine, to be directed by award-winning filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz.”  — John Waters

I Am Divine is a definitive biographical portrait of Harris Glenn Milstead, a.k.a. Divine, and honors him in just the way he always craved — as a serious artist and immortal star. Divine’s entire story is told, from his early days as a misfit youth in Baltimore through his rise to infamy as a cult superstar. Like the characters he portrayed in numerous films, Divine was the ultimate outsider.

He transformed himself from a bullied schoolyard fat kid to a larger-than-life personality and underdog royalty as his alter-ego Divine. Divine stood up for millions of gay men and women, female impersonators, punk rockers, the ample figured, and countless other socially ostracized people. With a completely committed in-your-face style, he blurred the line between performer and personality and revolutionized pop culture.

As outrageous and fun as its subject, I Am Divine combines movie clips, rare home movies and photos, television appearances and live performance footage with brand new interviews with John Waters, Ricki Lake, Mink Stole, Tab Hunter, Holly Woodlawn, Michael Musto, Bruce Vilanch, mother Frances Milstead (who provided her final interview just months before she passed away), and many more of Divine’s family, friends, colleagues, and devotees.
