BOOGIE NIGHTS

25th Anniversary Screening

"Darkly comic, vastly entertaining and utterly original, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights is one of the most ambitious films to have come out of Hollywood in some time."—Emanuel Levy, Variety

"A beautifully made survey of '70s excess, filtered through the trashy world of the burgeoning porno film industry in southern California."—Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

"Rarely, if ever, has any filmmaker depicted the void with so much sparkle and wit."—Kyle Smith, National Review

In the San Fernando Valley in 1977, teenage busboy Eddie Adams (Mark Wahlberg) gets discovered by porn director Jack Horner (Burt Reynolds), who transforms him into adult-film sensation Dirk Diggler. Brought into a supportive circle of friends, including fellow actors Amber Waves (Julianne Moore), Rollergirl (Heather Graham) and Reed Rothchild (John C. Reilly), Dirk fulfills all his ambitions, but a toxic combination of drugs and egotism threatens to take him back down.

A Blood & Butts Selection

Blood & Butts

What’s in a name? Well, in this case, everything. We’ve got blood and butts to burn in these rowdy and ribald rooftop titles. From road trips to sandy beaches to kung fu vengeance neo-blaxploitation thrillers, this series delivers on its promise.
