Eventbrite - Heat Lightning

heat lightningTake a gas station in the middle of the desert, fill with tough talking beautiful women, gangsters on the lam and assorted comic riff-raff and then turn up the heat! The deliciously world weary Aline MacMahnon and exuberant Ann Dvorak have their hands full when they find there’s no escape from the men that love them!


Dames, Hoodlums and the Depression!

Six Films from Hollywood’s Pre-Code Era! In the first years of talking pictures, 1929 to 1933, America’s film studios created an amazing body of work free from the enforcement of the Production Code – a form of corporate artistic self-censorship. These rambunctious films revel in themes that would become taboo for Hollywood over the next several decades – sex and money, politics and drugs, tough-talking women and the men on the make who love them all feature in stories told with breathless innovative cinematic style. Please join filmmaker and scholar Mark Larson for a survey of this unique and powerful moment in cinematic history. A spirited discussion follows every film.

RSVP Today!

Admission is Free. Theatre Seating is limited.

Patrons interested in attending should register for each film separately, and bring their registration to the Bluelight Cinemas box office before the scheduled start of the film to exchange with a ticket issued by Bluelight Cinemas.
