Movies in the Midwest

We’ll Always have Paris, Texas or It’s The End Of The Reel As We Know It

It’s finally come. Unable to keep afloat in the current economy and having gone through 4 locations in 3 years, Cinema Revolution is getting out of the retail game. It was announced earlier that they were shutting down their rental space at Intermedia Arts and all 2,500 of their titles will be up for grabs this weekend at the Trylon Microcinema, 3260 Minnehaha Ave S. The sale runs from 9-6 on Saturday and 12-6 on Sunday with a $5 entry charge on Saturday. Its not just the movies themselves that will be on sale, it’s an Everything-Must-Go deal, so TVs, fixtures, air of superiority, monitors and more will be clearance priced. They are also looking for volunteers to help sort and price, so if you are able, shoot an e-mail to john{at} I joke, but it is a sad day- I have spent about as much in late fees as rental charges at the Cinema Revolution locations over the years and hopefully they can make a good go of it encouraging film-makers and bringing quality film to the Twin Cities.


Speaking of bringing quality film to the Twin Cities, tonight marks the kickoff of the 10th annual Sound Unseen Festival. Tonight is Rock ‘n Bowl at Memory Lanes where you can enter a team to lace up with some of your favorite local acts and the movies start on Tuesday with R.E.M.: This Is Not A Show. The film captures R.E.M.’s 2007 stand at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland and was shot by Vincent Moon, best known for his groundbreaking live music videos, Concerts-a-Emporter at La Blogotheque. The festival runs for a week and features events tying together film, art and music all across the cities, so be sure to drop in and revel in some cineastic eggheadery.
