Let’s all do our part to beat this thing so we can go back to the complete movie going experience!

We're showing three David Fincher knock out pictures in September and we're starting off with this double of early work (Zodiac, his mid period masterpiece comes Sept 30th @ 8p at the SMC Theater). All of them on 35mm!

First up today, we show Se7en the movie that really cemented Fincher's transition from a famous music video director who directed movies to an out and out movie master who would stake the rest of his career really adding masterpieces to American cinema

After the frustrating experience Fincher had on Alien 3, he clearly felt he needed a re-set, a movie to announce to everyone he had a vision and a voice and a cinema passion beyond just pretty images. His fascinating neo-expressionistic noir-horror here really set the template for the Fincher tone.

The movie follows two police detectives (Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt) as they investigate a serial killer orchestrating murders to illustrate the seven deadly sins (sloth, gluttony, lust, etc.) The murders are grisly. The killer is elusive.

As the two detectives get closer to cracking the case, they also get closer to the same madness that possesses the brilliant but horribly sociopathic killer taunting them.

In a way a kind of pre-cursor to Zodiac from the fiction side, Se7en is still a lighthouse blast of cinema style and talent.

We follow this up with one of Fincher's most divisive yet paradoxically beloved movies Fight Club. Sad sack Ed Norton meets dark free spirit/anarchist Brad Pitt and the two one night decide to beat the hell out of each other in a parking lot just for kicks.

This one act of self-destructive male aggression suddenly catches on with dozens of other disaffected young men and Fight Club is born. The first rule of Fight Club-don't talk about fight club.

But when Helena Bonham Carter's wonderfully punk rock presence divides the men both in terms of their mutual attraction to her and her testing of their friendship/partnership, something altogether more unsettling and sinister is revealed at the heart of their relationship.

Fight Club has been re-evaluated, re-assessed, praised, demonized. Some see in it simply a nihilistic late 90's glorification of unbridled male id and privilege. Others see in it a hilarious satire, a la Dr. Strangelove, of the exact same thing as well as the general nihilism and emptiness of late 90's American culture.

What do you see? Come see both these movies on 35mm and see how a master American moviemaker is born.

Best always,

Craig Hammill

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR IN-DOOR THEATER SCREENINGS

REFUNDS:

We can offer refunds up to 24 hours before showtime. Please request a refund through Eventbrite and we will process ASAP. After that, no refunds. Sorry.

However if something last minute comes up and you can’t make the screening, for whatever reason, just write us at: community@secretmovieclub.com and we’ll offer you complimentary tickets to a future screening.

WHY ARE THE TICKET PRICES HIGHER THAN NORMAL?

In order for us to re-open, maintain health protocols (which includes operating at only 50% capacity), and screen movies on 35MM, we need to temporarily raise our ticket prices. We apologize.

However, if you could look at this as partially helping Secret Movie Club re-open indoor theaters and 35MM film screening, we would be eternally grateful.

As we can increase capacity, we will IMMEDIATELY LOWER ticket prices.

If you could look at this as all of us being in this together, we WILL remember your kindness.

HELPFUL MILLION DOLLAR THEATER MOVIE PALACE PARKING TIPS:

If you are attending all movies on any given day (the double or triple feature), you can go to ADD ONS and pre-order an all day $6 Grand Central Parking Lot Pass. The Grand Central Parking Lot is at the corner of 3rd Street and Hill Street just 1 block from the Million Dollar Theater entrance on 3rd & Broadway.

Folks just attending one feature can also park at this lot and as long as you grab food/drink from GCM you can get a 90 minute validation stamp that will help the cost of parking.

HOW WILL OUR STAFF MAKE SURE THE THEATER IS AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE:

We will have staff in the theater (on both the ground and balcony levels) at all times who make sure everyone is wearing masks and obeying protocols. We will have signage at entrance, markings at concessions, restrooms, etc so folks keep 6 ft distance at all times.

Anyone not observing safe protocols will kindly be asked to leave. On top of this, we’ll be making announcements at the head of each screening to make sure everyone understands the rules & regs!
