NEW VENUE
Matchbox Cineclub
Joe Dante's The Movie Orgy

Sun 9 September 2018

This event has moved to The Old Hairdressers, Renfield Lane, Glasgow G2 5AR.

Before The ‘Burbs, before Gremlins, before The Howling, before he started his career cutting trailers for Roger Corman, director Joe Dante made The Movie Orgy. An evolving compilation of serials, film clips, ads and film trailers, originally Dante and his producer Jon Davison “mixed” The Movie Orgy live, switching between two projectors to make a reactive, free-flowing, communal live experience. At its longest, it ran 7.5 hours. The current version is 4.5 hours long and screens from Dante’s own digital edit.

A mind-bending predecessor to the modern mash-up, The Movie Orgy (1968) is also the Rosetta Stone for Joe Dante’s oeuvre and a must-see for movie fans and cinephiles alike.
