Film Club’s LOST WEEKEND V will be a celebration of film at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema from Thursday, February 25th through Sunday, February 28th.  Twenty feature films from around the world will be featured, including EIGHT advance screenings.  None of these films have been screened theatrically in Winchester before.  Other weekend highlights will include a Devils Bakbone beer tasting, a free photo booth, menu specials based around films, free buttons and more!

158 weekend passes are available.  Passes guarantee you a seat to all eighteen screenings for only $35.

During Lost Weekend V, Film Club will host a silent auction whose proceeds will benefit the MUSEUM OF THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY

Please help Film Club and the Alamo make independent cinema more available to the public than ever before.

Film Club 3.0 is a community of film fans that meets as often as every week at the Alamo Drafthouse to screen independent, foreign, documentary and classic films.  Founded and led by Andy Gyurisin, the group has grown to over 2,000 members in two years of screenings at the Alamo and has helped to demonstrate that independent films are in demand in the Shenandoah Valley.

Country Inn and Suites is located next to the theater and is offering a group rate for the weekend.  Call 540-869-7657 for rates and availability.

This is our full line-up of our Lost Weekend V schedule arriving to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Winchester on February 25th – 28th, 2016.

Please Avoid Late Fees: A Return to V/H/S with V/H/S 2

When I began this project my initial idea was that I was going to explore horror anthologies as a stepping stone for young indie directors to make their mark within the genre.  I felt confident about my initial research, and it shaped my first conversation on the topic, but then social media reminded me that not everything Andy believes is true.  An email from a friend mentioned that V/H/S was the case of a distribution company who had lost money with some horror films to make one for a small amount and sell it for a larger amount.  It was also the case of a group of friends who were bored and gathered to make a film on the cheap.  This had me thinking, perhaps my argument is wrong, perhaps what I should be looking at is the business of horror anthologies.  Are horror anthologies a perfect way to finance either another film project, or to pull yourself out of debt?  I will explore this a bit using V/H/S 2 as my backdrop.

Be Kind Rewind: An Exploration into the Horror Anthology V/H/S (Part 1 of 3)

Over Halloween I had the unique opportunity to do a Q&A session with Johnny Daggers, the director of a indie horror documentary called, BLOOD ON THE REEL.  Our conversation ranged from the impact of the internet on the indie horror genre to a movie called THE NIPPLE COLLECTOR (a mythological film that potentially with crowdfunding could find its origin story), but one of the most interesting bits that still knocks around in my mind is Daggers’ impression of the anthology sub-genre in horror.  When asked his thoughts about this new growing area of cinema, he spoke of his approval.  This type of story allows more indie horror filmmakers to showcase their talent and begin defining themselves as contributors to the genre.
