Dementia came out in 1955 and it’s the first and only film directed by John Parker. It’s a bit like the ’50s Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with female sexual paranoia. It was banned in the UK for 13 years. It’s Boyd Rice’s favourite film and it plays like a proto-David Lynch film! There will be a short intermission between the film and the bands to do a quick soundcheck Then some rockin’ bands will play Nervous Twitch City Yelps Horowitz Death Trippers with more acts to be confirmed! Afterwards Ian Schultz and other reprobates will be spinning psychedelic weirdness to post-punk and everything in between. Expect to hear the following Joy Division, The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Clean, The Velvet Underground, The Dream Syndicate, The Shangri-Las, Big Star, The Birthday Party, Devo, Cleaners from Venus, The Seeds, The Sonics, Bobby Fuller, Buzzcocks, Wipers, The Fall, The Chills, The Verlaines, The Go-Betweens, Serge Gainsbourg, Josie Cotton, Lee Hazlewood, Love, The Stooges, Radio Birdman, The Saints, The Monks, Ramones My Bloody Valentine, Swell Maps, The Psychedelic Furs, The Raincoats, The Standells, The Chocolate Watch-Band, The Replacements, Television Personalities, Suicide, Talking Heads, X, The 13th Floor Elevators and much more £5 entry on…

Rare screening of the 4K restoration of Karel Zeman's imaginative masterwork. Tickets are £5 on the door. It's very much a kid friendly film and it will be disappointing to not to have a few kids there. Kids get in free with a paying guardian. Often described as the ‘Czech Méliès’, visionary filmmaker Karel Zeman is treasured by generations of filmmakers worldwide, from Jan Švankmajer to Tim Burton, the Quay Brothers to Terry Gilliam, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Wes Anderson. His ground-breaking innovations in the use of live-action and animation mark him as one of the great masters of 20th Century fantasy cinema, ranking alongside his more celebrated Western counterparts Willis O’Brien and Ray Harryhausen. The Fabulous Baron Munchausen is perhaps Zeman’s most beloved achievement. Zeman’s wildly inventive and comic take on the surreal adventures of the bragging Baron explodes on to the screen in a riot of colour, visual wit and poetic verve. A celebration of human imagination, The Fabulous Baron Munchausen has become widely recognised as a classic - a timeless work that continues to astonish. "Why do I make movies? I'm looking for terra incognita, a land on which no filmmaker has yet set foot, a…

Sandrine Bonnaire won the Best Actress César for her portrayal of the defiant young drifter Mona in Agnès Varda's Vagabond. Found frozen to death in a ditch at the beginning of the film, Mona’s story is pieced together through flashbacks told by those who encountered her (played by a largely non-professional cast), producing a splintered portrait of an enigmatic woman. With its sparse, poetic imagery, Vagabond is a compelling watch, and won Varda the top prize at the 1985 Venice Film Festival. Part of a She's A Rebel mini-season for Scalarama, looking at the cinematic representation of female adolescence and girls who refuse to conform.
