As part of their ongoing Tuesday night 幸运28投注SiNema Movie Nights series, Satan's Living Room brings you one of director Harmony Korine's more bizarre movies. Considering it's the director of “Kids” and “Gummo”, that says a lot. “Mr. Lonely" is the story of a Michael Jackson impersonator who meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator, then goes to live in a castle in Scotland with impersonators of Abraham Lincoln, Charlie Chaplin, The Pope, The Three Stooges, and more. It's like Bill and Ted, except if all the bodacious air guitar solos were replaced with dissociative fits. Starts 8.30pm. Free.
As of August 1 last year, humans have used up more of Earth's resources than it can regenerate within one year, according to the Global Footprint Network. There are limits to the life-sustaining resources earth can provide us. This July, Green Initiatives is discussing overpopulation. Does it even exist? Is it a myth, intended to cover a larger and far more important problem? Could the way we treat each other be more important than the amount of people in the world? Boy, these seem like pretty leading questions. The award-winning documentary Population Boom starts with this as the basis for a debate, and becomes a cinematic journey between myth, facts and politics.. 50rmb or 70rmb on the door.
Glam's Summer Movie Nights kicks off with a screening of the glammest, Bundiest film in recent times, Great Gatsby. Keeping it classy and literary up there above the promenade. Extended happy hour during the movie.
Widely considered contemporary China's best film, Farewell My Concubine is the beautifully wrought story of two male stars in a Beijing opera troupe and the woman who comes between them. What give the film its edge is its exploration of the effect of China’s mid-century turmoil on the lives of people. Directed by renowned 5th-generation director Chen Kaige and starring legends Leslie Cheung, Gong Li, and Zhang Fengyi, the film won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival along with a host of international awards. The Pottery Workshop is screening this as part of its weekly movie series. There's a Happy Hour with 50rmb Peddlers Gin cocktails beforehand.
