There's a war going on, but that won't stop the inexperienced but eager film crew The Fuck Bombers from following their dreams of making the ultimate action epic. Ten years ago, yakuza mid-boss Ikegami led an assult against rival don Muto. Now, on the eve of his revenge, all Muto wants to do is complete his masterpiece, a feature film with his daughter in the starring role, before his wife is released from prision.

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!

FRANK - September 18


Frank is a comedy about a young wannabe musician, Jon, who discovers he's bitten off more than he can chew when he joins a band of eccentric pop musicians led by the mysterious and enigmatic Frank and his terrifying sidekick, Clara. Frank's uniqueness lies in the fact that he makes music purely for the joy of creating and because he wears a giant fake head. After a rocky start, Jon ingratiates himself with the band, and they retreat to a cabin in the woods to record an album. As his influencewaxes, creative tensions mount and the band's entire raison d'être is called into question.
