Los Angeles (CA1175)
ENCORE SCREENING: Saturday, June 22, 2019 @ 11:59p, The Vista: THE KILLER (1989, Hong Kong, directed by John Woo, 35mm) John Woo’s late 80’s, early 90’s Hong Kong action movies have had such a profound impact on the action movie genre that it’s sometimes easy to forget just how much Woo changed the game. Your hero blazes into a room with two guns. That’s John Woo. Your hero dances in a bloody ballet of bullets that combines practical effects, blood squibs, slow motion, kinetic editing, and jaw dropping stunts. That’s John Woo. Your hero grapples with spiritual and moral issues at the same time she or he kicks some serious a@#. That’s John Woo. The action is at 11. That’s John Woo. Woo’s masterpiece, THE KILLER, is to the modern action movie what Orson Welle’s CITIZEN KANE is to the director-driven movie: it is the Rosetta Stone for everything that would come after.
THE KILLER is a Hong Kong action fable. .with lots of blood. Weary hitman Ah Jong (played by international superstar Chow Yun Fat at the height of his game) accidentally blinds nightclub singer Jenny during a hit gone wrong. He then devotes himself to raising the money for an operation to restore her sight. In the process, he catches the attention of police detective Li Ying who starts out hunting Ah Jong but ends up coming to grudgingly respect him. Of course the mismatched pair end up having to take on Hong Kong Triad gangsters in a church in what may be the single most famous sequence in all of Hong Kong action cinema. We're doing this encore screening for all the folks who couldn't make the Thursday, June 20, 2019 screening. And we'll be editing together a short 15 minute condensation of Mr. Woo's remarks ahead of the movie. So even though Thursday sold out with Mr. Woo, you will get the chance to hear his thoughts and advice and then see THE KILLER on 35mm. Viva la cinema. Viva John Woo. Best always, Craig Hammill 35mm Secret Movie Club Programmer.Organizer Best always, Craig Hammill 35mm Secret Movie Club Programmer.Organizer SECRET MOVIE CLUB FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: TICKETS: Tickets for all our events are available online: https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com And through each individual event on our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/secretmovieclub35mm/.

We also make tickets available at the Vista Box Office. REFUNDS: We will honor all refund requests as long as they are made 24 hours or more before the listed start time of the screening. After that, no refunds. Sorry. COMP TICKETS: Sometimes we offer a complimentary ticket to a future screening because you bought an extra ticket and missed the refund window or there was a mishap at the screening (rare but when it happens, we try to do right by you). You can use your complimentary ticket for any future regularly scheduled screening within the current and next season. So for instance, if you received your comp ticket during our Spring season (April-June), you could claim your comp ticket for any regularly scheduled screening in our Spring OR Summer (July-September) season. Just email us at: email@example.com with the name of the screening you would like to attend. We'll confirm and have your complimentary ticket waiting for you under your name at our table ahead of that screening. Please note that complimentary tickets are only valid for regularly scheduled screenings that have not SOLD OUT. We do not issue complimentary tickets for SOLD OUT screenings or SPECIAL EVENTS that are ticketed differently than our regular events. HOW DOES A SECRET MOVIE CLUB 2019 SINGLE SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS WORK: If you buy an SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS (access to all movies we’re showing within one season or multi-seasons as listed on the pass), you get entrance into every single movie we show throughout that time (including any special events we may announce at a later time; so your value may increase. ). We offer SPRING and SUMMER 2019 SEASON PASSES individually (for example, if you know you will be able to attend in Spring but not Summer; a great deal at $6 a ticket) and a MULTI-SEASON PASS (all 83 events in both Spring & Summer 2019, our best deal at $4.50 per ticket). These passes are available through the following EVENTBRITE LINK: https://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com If you decide to buy the SEASON or MULTI-SEASON ALL-ACCESS PASS and have already bought a series pass or individual ticket, just write us: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll issue you a refund for the individual tickets you bought so you can get the all-access pass. Each pass is available for purchase online until the start of the first event of the season that would be covered by that pass. With the ALL-ACCESS PASS, we generate a special list with your name on it. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket. HOW DOES A SERIES PASS WORK: If you buy an Individual Series Pass, you gain entrance to all movies in that series. This is our next best deal at $9 a ticket after an All-Access pass at $4.50 or $6.00 a ticket. If you want to see all the movies in a particular series but not necessarily all the movies in a season this is the way to go. The price of each Series Pass depends on how many movies we show in that series. So for instance if we are showing 7 movies in the series, the pass would cost $63 (or $9 per movie). If we are showing 4 movies in that series, the pass would cost $36, and so on. You can buy the Series Pass through any individual Eventbrite link for a movie in that series. Then, we generate a special list with your name on it. All you have to do is come to our table ahead of each movie, give us your name, and get your ticket. MOVIEPASS AND OTHER PASSES LIKE IT (as of May 2019): While we do accept and want you to use your special passes, we advise all moviegoers to first check the current rules and regulations of their pass to make sure their pass is accepted for our events. Secret Movie Club and the Vista Theater are not associated with nor responsible for any changes in policy on the part of any outside vendor offering a pass to Los Angeles screenings or any similar service. CONCESSIONS: The Vista Concessions stand is open for all our events. So you will always have access to popcorn, soda, candy, coffee the works. PARKING: The Vista has no dedicated parking lot. Thankfully, there is parking in the residential areas around the Vista Theater. Just plan to get to the theater 20 minutes earlier than normal so you have enough time to park, walk to the theater, get your tickets, get in line. Make sure you read the street signs. Hillhurst and Sunset Drive tend to be the best for street parking. Avoid Rosalia and Commonwealth as they have permit-only parking rules. We don’t want any Secret Movie Clubbers getting parking tickets. Vista Theatre is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Metro Red line Vermont/Sunset station, and DASH buses (Hollywood, Los Feliz, Observatory) and Metro buses 2, 175, and 302 are right across the street. SHOWTIMES: We screen our movies before or after the Vista’s official movies. This is why most of our showtimes are either at 11:59pm or between 10am-11am in the morning. Always check the listed showtime before buying your ticket as we do sometimes have to adjust the showtime to accommodate the running time of the movie. MAILING LIST: We started as a secret email list way back in April of 2016. In respect to our origins, we will always announce our upcoming seasons, special events, and speakers with the ability to get tickets via the email list first before posting to Facebook or anywhere else. If you’d like to get on the secret email list, email us at: email@example.com. OTHER QUESTIONS: You can always email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org . We work to respond asap within receipt of your email. If you don't get a response within 48 hours, please email us again. .
