R100 - February 12th


Nao Ohmori (star of Takashi Miike's Ichi the Killer) plays Takafumi Katayama, a mild mannered father who escapes the pressures of daily life by joining a mysterious S&M club, where the so-called Queens visit clients in real-life settings. While at first the rough treatment and humiliation he receives from leather-clad women in cafés and restaurants is enjoyable, Takafumi soon realizes that he's opened a door that cannot be closed. Unable to end his relationship with the club, he finds himself pursued by a gang of ruthless dominatrices, each with a very unique talent. Takafumi must either find a way to turn the tables, or walk even further down this dark yet sexy path.

THE ZERO THEOREM - November 17

The Zero Theorem

Set in a future London, starring Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. He lives in isolation in a burnt-out chapel, waiting for a phone call which he is convinced will provide him with answers he has long sought.

Qohen works on a mysterious project, delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon), aimed at discovering the purpose of existence - or the lack thereof - once and for all. But his solitary existence is disturbed by visits from the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), and Bob (Lucas Hedges), Management’s wunderkind son.

Yet it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.

Once again BAFS presents a 35mm screening of a  film that begs to be seen in a movie theater on the BIG SCREEN. Last years Secret Screening "DEMONS" played with the boundaries between the audience and film itself and, we have a feeling, that this one will as well. Also vintage 35mm trailers and other surprises will play before the film.

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE - 40th Anniversary 4K Restoration - October 23 & 27

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - 40th Anniversary 4K Restoration

40 years after it was first released, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still a sweaty, desperate, urgent masterpiece, a film that feels like it was made by lunatics, a movie that vows to unleash chaos and anarchy on the world. A movie that's still uncomfortable to watch.
A movie the still makes an impression.

The history of the restoration of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has been almost as legendary as the history of the film itself. Long caught up in litigation due to conflicts with the first distributor, the film moved to New Line and in the early 90's the original film elements were found in a brown paper bag in the New Line vaults. Dark Sky Films has undertaken a series of transfers and restorations since then, but none of them equal the scope or intensity of this 40th Anniversary restoration. This is the only transfer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls and have all audio and digital color grading and supervision done by Tobe Hooper.

See it like you have never seen it before... and if you have never seen it... WHAT THE HELL!
