Art House Movie Day: Sept. 24 at The Little

By Scott Pukos

I'm going to use this space to look into the future -- all the way to the far away time of September 2016!

There are still some lingering questions about this future society: Will there be flying cars? Have we finally found the aliens? Are the robots self-aware now?!

Despite these uncertainties, one thing is guaranteed: Saturday, Sept. 24 is the first ever Art House Theater Day. It's new, so there's a good chance you're asking: What is that? Think Record Store Day, just with art house theaters (like The Little). The Art House Theater Day website describes it excellently, so I'll let them take it for this next part:

"Art House Theater Day celebrates the legacy of independent theaters as advocates for cinema arts. In an age where media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters remain the physical spaces where film lovers congregate and connect with intrepid, creative filmmaking. They are the beating heart for new and exciting cinema that is shaping the future of the medium.

In recent decades, a colorful constellation of art houses has emerged across the globe. This art house movement has nurtured a flourishing ecosystem of adventurous audiences, independent productions, and an incredible diversity of original filmmaking. Art House Theater Day is a worldwide celebration in honor of this movement, a day to celebrate cinemas that stand the test of time and the tremendous film culture that art house theaters promote."

Now, how do we celebrate all this? With movies of course! Here is the day's lineup, and the times they are playing at The Little (again, this is Saturday, Sept. 24):

Noon: A Town Called Panic
3 p.m.: Time Bandits
7 p.m.: Danny Says
9:30 p.m.: Phantasm
