WVIFF and Underground Cinema are excited to present Art House Theater Day with showings of the 1967 documentary, TITICUT FOLLIES on 9/24 and 9/27 followed by an exclusive interview by Wes Anderson with the film's director, Frederick Wiseman. See below for more details on times, tickets, and volunteering. .............................................................. TITICUT FOLLIES Saturday, 9/24 at 4:00pm (Volunteering 11am-3pm) Wednesday, 9/27 at 7:00pm (Volunteering 3-7pm) Tickets: $9 General Admission $5 Student Admission *There are stairs to the cinema. Contact us in advance by email or on the day of the screening at 304-941-2021 for special accommodations.* .............................................................. The Underground Cinema is, at its core, a community theater and was built by volunteers. Because that's who we are, Art House Theater Day will include a little sprucing up! We will be having a volunteer day to do some painting and other improvements to the space from 11am to 3pm on Sunday, 9/24 with a screening at 4:00pm. We will have another volunteer day from 3pm to 7pm on Wednesday, 9/27 with a screening at 7:00pm. If you sign up to volunteer, there is no need to purchase a ticket, but if you are unable to volunteer, we welcome you to come and enjoy the film anyway. The second annual Art House Theater Day features exclusive films shown in 150 of the best independent, local theaters across the country. The films on deck offer up special film programs in what is billed as a “nationwide celebration of the cultural and community growth that art house theaters promote" Per its mission, “Art House Theater Day celebrates the legacy of independent theaters as advocates for cinematic 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.” ........................................................... TITICUT FOLLIES Titicut Follies is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. TITICUT FOLLIES documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists. “TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminal insane… A society’s treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization. The repulsive reality revealed in TITICUT FOLLIES forces us to contemplate our capacity for callousness.” –Richard Schickel, Life
