Amazing Captain Nemo (1978)—"From hit making producer Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno) comes the triumphant return of the greatest adventurer of all (by way of Jules Verne)! Awakened from a 100-year cryogenic freeze, the legendary Captain Nemo (Academy Award® winner José Ferrer) pursues a mad scientist (Burgess Meredith) who threatens to destroy Washington unless he's paid a billion dollars in gold." Cave-In! (1979)—"Ships go belly up, high-rise towers burn, Mother Nature blows her volcanic top - all perfect settings for Irwin Allen to unleash his gift for putting star-studded casts in peril and audiences on the edges of their seats. Now the prolific producer plunges deep below terra firma into the rocky perils of Cave In! A handful of citizens (travelers, government officials, a park ranger) are trapped after the sudden collapse of the popular Five Mile Caverns. Someone else is with them: a desperate fugitive eager to claim a hostage after the group works its way to daylight. Slippery inclines, an underwater passage, a geothemal pit, a rickety bridge and more dangers stand between the group and blue skies. Hang on for adventure!" Fire (1977)—" The sheer terror and unearthly beauty of a raging forest fire is breathlessly captured in this compelling Irwin Allen production boasting a big-name cast and enough blazing special effects to turn night into day. Involved are a lumber mill owner (Ernest Borgnine), the widowed operator of a forest lodge (Vera Miles), a teacher on a class outing (Donna Mills), a country doctor (Lloyd Nolan), a couple (Patty Duke Astin and Alex Cord) whose shaky marriage is healed when battling the blaze brings out their better natures, and escaping convicts (Neville Brand and Erik Estrada) who use the conflagration to cover their tracks. Like Allen's crowd-pleasers The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno, Fire sizzles with suspense and excitement. Turn up the heat!" Flood (1976)—" A rain-swollen lake. A small town dependent on fishing revenues. A rivulet of water seeping through the rocks beneath an earthen dam. These are the suspense-generating ingredients of this onrushing, all-star Irwin Allen production. A helicopter pilot (Robert Culp) and a youngster (Eric Olson) first discover the dam's leaky secret. But local leaders refuse to face the drain on the town's troubled economy that draining the lake would cause. A high-and-dry solution is not in the cards." Hanging by a Thread (1979)—" Patty Duke Astin leads a formidable cast in this high-wire suspense thriller from the legendary producer of star-laden disaster epics, Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno). A cable car turns into a perilous death trap when an electrical storm stalls the sightseeing tram 7,000 feet in the air. Buffeted by winds that hamper their rescue, eight suspended passengers face a deadly night of terror dangling helplessly while the tram's weakened cable slowly starts snapping, one thin wire at a time. Featuring Cameron Mitchell, Bert Convy and Donna Mills, Hanging by a Thread is a hair-raising blend of excitement and danger that's good to the very last drop!" Mammy (1930)—" Center stage, singing his heart out - that's how fans love Al Jolson. And that's what they get in Mammy. It's an ideal showcase for the master showman, giving full rein to Jolson's unique talents in a melodramatic story of a lovelorn minstrel man innocently involved in murderous intrigue. But, as always with Jolson, the star is the story. Here he gets top support from Irving Berlin's jazzy-melodious score, including the jaunty 'Let Me Sing 'and 'I'm Happy.' The film's most memorable sequences feature Jolson in full-scale recreations of a genuine minstrel show, complete with interlocutor-end man gags, dancers, tambourine chorus, tunes aplenty and a daffy mock-opera version of 'Yes, We Have No Bananas.' NEWLY REMASTERED WITH RESTORED 2-COLOR TECHNICOLOR SEQUENCES!" The McConnell Story (1955)—" As the alarm wails, Joe McConnell's squad of Sabre pilots are airborne in seconds. The mission: keep enemy planes away from helicopters evacuating wounded infantrymen. The destination: the deadly corridor called MIG Alley. Alan Ladd and June Allyson star as real-life jet aviation pioneer Capt. Joseph McConnell Jr. and his devoted wife Butch. And James Whitmore is the commander who first recognizes McConnell's prowess as a "tiger of the sky." In war, McConnell became America's first triple jet ace, downing 16 enemy planes. In peace, he braved the unknown as a test pilot in the jet era's infancy. And The McConnell Story's darting and swerving aerial sequences will thrillingly sweep you up in a great hero's lively life." The Night The Bridge Fell Down (1979)—" A man rushing his infant son to the hospital...a police officer pursuing a suspect...a middle-aged secretary...eloping lovebirds...a soon-to-be nun...a house painter. They have places to go, things to do and the best way to get to those places and do those things is to cross the Madison Bridge. But, just like that, there's a big problem. The bridge partially gives way, stranding nine people and threatening to collapse at any moment. There's another problem, too. A panicked, gun-wielding bank robber using the bridge as his escape route refuses to let rescuers draw near. Hollywood hitmaker Irwin Allen suspensefully spans the hours with the event-packed tale of The Night the Bridge Fell Down!" No More Ladies (1935)—" Marcia Townsend is ready to settle down, playboy Sheridan "Sherry" Warren isn't, so what do they do? Get hitched! But when Sherry continues to live in a way that would unhitch any vows, Marcia concocts a plan to give him his comeuppance. She'll throw a society party - bridge, charades and payback - where the invitees include people loved and left (and hurt) by the rakish cad. Salut, Sherry! The sparks fly in this giddy comedy of manners (co-scripted by The Philadelphia Story's Donald Ogden Stewart) starring Joan Crawford and Robert Montgomery. Most giddy of all: the cocktail-fueled witticisms of co-stars Edna May Oliver and Charlie Ruggles." Paid (1930)—"Among the harridans and hard-timers in a women's prison, one inmate stands out like a diamond in a box of tarnished costume jewelry. She's Mary Turner, convicted of a crime she didn't commit. Once an innocent shop girl, now embittered by three years in the pen, Mary has big plans after her release. First she'll make a fortune running scams that stay just within the law. Then she'll seek revenge on the man who put her behind bars by marrying his guileless son. Joan Crawford got one of her earliest solid dramatic roles in Paid (Grand Hotel was one year in the future), and she made the most of it. Her trenchant portrayal of Mary - tough and tender, smart and vulnerable - makes this version of the often-filmed story a standout." Susan and God (1940)—" Wealthy, impulsive Susan Trexel undergoes a religious conversion, one undoubtedly destined to last as long as this season's hemline length. But in the meantime, Susan insists everyone around her - including her neglected husband and child - alter their lives (and loves) to conform to her latest whim. A sterling cast highlights this witty comedy-drama: Joan Crawford, Fredric March, Ruth Hussey, Nigel Bruce, John Carroll and a pre-stardom Rita Hayworth." This Modern Age (1930)—"Young Valentine Winters (Joan Crawford) leaves America to join her ooh-la-la mama in Paris...and Life begins. Soon Valentine is caught up in a whirl of hot music and cold champagne, of the right clothes and the wrong men, of all pleasure and no happiness. Then she meets an upstanding Harvard man. The future looks bright, until his strait-laced parents visit Paris. They discover not only Valentine's wild ways, but a shocking secret about her mother - and Valentine's world comes crashing down. Gloriously gowned by Adrian, the normally brunette Crawford peroxided up for the role of Valentine and scored a hit with female fans eager to share her glamorous path from good girl to party girl to a woman forged by the fires of love." Torchy Blane Collection (1936)—" Glenda Farrell was a signature Warner Bros. 1930s star and she shone brightest as tough-talking reporter Torchy Blane, who always broke the case and got the story - if not her man, a police detective always a crimesolving step behind her. The 9-movie, 5-disc Complete Torchy Blane Movie Collection features Farrell in seven breezy capers and Lola Lane and Jane Wyman as the nosy newswoman in the other two. All are Extra! Extra! fun." Steel (1997) NEW DOCUMENTARIES, PERFORMANCE ART, EXPERIMENTAL FILMS & NON FICTION FARE Brain Fitness Frontiers—"Brain Fitness Frontiers explores how ordinary people are utilizing their brain plasticity to create lasting and astonishing changes. From aging to recovery from injury, the frontiers of neuroscience research are proving that our own neuroplasticity holds the key to previously unimaginable and incredible transformations. Hosted by Peter Coyote, Brain Fitness Frontiers takes you into the labs of the scientists and into the lives of those who have been assisted and changed through cognitive training and other therapies on the cutting edge of neuroscientific discovery." Noam Chomsky: Crisis and Hope-Theirs and Ours— "On June 12, 2009, Noam Chomsky gave a historic address at the Riverside Church in New York City. More than 2,000 people attended this historic address, captured here, in which Chomsky offered a powerful analysis of the current economic crisis and its structural roots; the continuity in U.S. foreign policy under the Barack Obama administration; the class interests driving U.S. domestic and foreign policy. He also speaks here at length about the tradition of worker self-management as a concrete alternative to the business as usual approach of corporations and the government during the current crisis. The DVD also features an Introduction by Amy Goodman and a one on one interview with Noam Chomsky." Comrades in Dreams—"Comrades in Dreams is a valentine to the pleasures of cinema. In a world dominated by cookie-cutter multiplexes, formulaic filmmaking, and commercial imperatives, filmmaker Uli Gaulke embarks on a journey to celebrate the essence of the cinematic experience by exploring the most alternative, "independent" strain of cinema owners and their film communities he can find. Employing a stunning use of film narrative, Gaulke, a former projectionist and cinema owner himself, interweaves stories spanning four continents... a traveling Indian tent cinema to a North Korean "film club," a Wyoming woman's dedication to her local cinema group to an open-air cinema in Burkina Faso, the world's poorest country. In this poetic evocation of their lives, he captures a sense of the universal humanity that the fundamental act of "cinema" evokes in each of his characters." Concert of Wills: Making of the Getty Center—" This acclaimed documentary traces the building of the Getty Center, one of the most ambitious cultural undertakings of the twentieth century. Spanning fourteen years, from the early blueprints to the groundbreaking to the public opening of the Center in December 1997, the film takes viewers from California to a rock quarry in Italy where the Center's signature travertine originated. The gathering of creative personalities needed to complete this monumental complex gave rise to conflict as well as consensus, to tension as well as resolution. Concert of Wills looks behind the scenes and chronicles intimate moments of success as well as frustration and heated debates." David Vs. Monsanto—" In this definitive David and Goliath battle, one farmer stands up against a massive multinational, and their right to claim ownership to a living organism." The DVD also includes the similarly themed documentary shorts Born of the Sun and My Father's Garden. DV8 Physical Theater—Three films of movement performance art: Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men, Enter Achilles and Strange Fish. Every Other Day is Halloween—"Every Other Day is Halloween is an amazing and funny true life story of television personality Dick Dyszel, whose popular television characters, "Count Gore De Vol" and "Captain 20," continue to inspire generations of fans and artists. Featuring rare, never before seen footage, along with interviews with writers like Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), filmmakers such as Jeff Krulik (Heavy Metal Parking Lot), as well a new generation of horror hosts John Dimes ("Dr. Sarcofiguy") and Jerry Moore II ("Karlos Borloff"). Dick Dyszel's career and impact shows how art can sometimes come back to re-influence itself, and how the best days will always be ahead." Fish Out Of Water—"Coming out of the closet can be challenging and for Ky Dickens, her experience coming out to friends at Vanderbilt University led to the making of Fish Out Of Water, a spirited documentary that explores the seven Bible passages notoriously used to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination. This genre-bending, intellectually condensed, power-packed analysis of the homophobic religious arguments is a mixture of animation, LGBTQ community interviews and expert analysis from theologians across the country. With the help of a cartoon narrator, animated recollections of Bible passages and witty illustrations, Fish Out Of Water makes this polarizing subject accessible and non-threatening. Golden-Globe nominated composer Kaki King (Into the Wild) delivers an original score that flows effortlessly through the film's diverse elements." How Weed Won The West—"With California and the rest of the country going bankrupt, one business is booming. How Weed Won the West is the story of the growing Medical Marijuana industry, focusing on Los Angeles with over 1000 legal dispensaries doling out the buds. Following the story of Organica, a southland dispensary which was raided by state and federal agencies in August of 2009, the film shows that although much has changed with Obama in office, the drug war is nowhere near over." Junk Dreams—"Ernie and Charlie Borgman board a 29 foot Chinese Junk boat and set sail for a 1627 mile journey through the Inside Passage. The two and a half month journey takes them along the Canadian and Alaskan coast, along the Inside passage and out into the icy waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Through torrents of rain and raging waters, engine trouble and broken masts....the two men come face to face with adventure." Benjamin Latrobe: America's First Architect—"Benjamin Latrobe: America's First Architect is a story of triumph and tragedy, the compelling saga of the man who designed much of official Washington, including the central portions of the United States Capitol. His ideas ultimately defined the first uniquely 'American' architecture, but his life was a tumultuous series of creative successes and personal catastrophes, ending with his death in poverty in New Orleans. " The Linguists—"The Linguists joins David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. David and Greg's 'round-the-world journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake." Mythic Journeys—" Despite the fact that myth has always existed, surprisingly few people today are aware of even the classic myths or the potential myths have to impact their lives. Myths are the reservoir of human wisdom - the story and the meaning of life. Every human being has asked the questions who am I, what is my purpose, why am I here? The answers are in the myths that have been passed on from generation to generation. Mythic Journeys is an inventive fusion of documentary, story, artwork and animation that shows how mythology can bridge cultures, communities and generations." Naked Ambition: An R-Rated Look at an X-Rated Industry—"Join celebrity photographer Michael Grecco as he presents a humorous, sometimes introspective, always unexpected, behind-the-scenes look at the AVN Awards, the Oscar's of the porn industry." National Geographic: Expedition Great White—" Off the coast of Baja California, science and sport fishing join forces for an unprecedented research effort. Marine biologist Dr. Michael Domeier joins a team of world-class anglers and crew members, including actor Paul Walker (Fast and Furious) who jumped in as a deckhand, to land one of the most challenging fish imaginable: the great white shark." Pressure Cooker—"There's a force-of-nature behind the door to Room 325 at Frankford High School in Philadelphia. Her name is Wilma Stephenson and she teaches Culinary Arts. Infamously blunt, Mrs. Stephenson runs a "boot camp" at Frankford, disciplining her students into capable chefs and responsible students. A teacher for 40 years, Wilma can be cantankerous - but behind her tough talking exterior is a teacher who cares passionately about getting the best out of her kids. She'll do anything for those students with the hunger to succeed; those who fall short will not be missed - many will drop out before the first week is over. Pressure Cooker documents an entire school year with Wilma and those students committed enough to surrender themselves to her enlightened despotism." Remembering Ellis Island—"The most comprehensive documentary of the Ellis Island story in all its complexity...Our cameras trace the saga from the old world where it all began to the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Our nation's monument to its immigrant heritage, and the inspiring story of the immigrant's lives in the new world, truly a memorial to the common people, it is testimony to the indomitable spirit of the 12 million souls who trod it's ground seeking entrance to America." Seattle Pilots: Short Flight Into History—" The Seattle Pilots: Short Flight Into History uncovers the reasons why the team left Seattle and why the team retains its place in baseball lore four decades after taking the field for the last time.

They also reveal the untold stories behind some of the greatest screenplays ever written, describing their adventures with luminaries including Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman, Stanley Kubrick, Joel Silver, Martin Scorsese, and Steven Spielberg." Tiger Next Door—"Dennis Hill has been breeding and selling tigers from his backyard in Flat Rock, Indiana for over fifteen years. When the documentary begins, Hill has 24 tigers, 3 bears, 6 leopards and one cougar. He claims to know exactly what his animals are thinking by the look in their eyes. But now, after a surprise government inspection, he's lost the license that allowed him to keep exotic animals, and the state of Indiana is threatening to shut him down. He has just five days to find alternate homes for all but three of his brood and to bring his facilities up to code -- or else lose what he considers to be his life's work." Witch Hunt (2008)—" Executive produced and narrated by Sean Penn, this award winning documentary chronicles a miscarriage of justice where a dozen people were falsely convicted of crimes committed against their own children and the long, legal process to exonerate them two decades after their incarceration." ...AND MORE MOVIES Adventures of Electra Elf: Complete Series—Nick Zedd and Reverend Jen present the "original superheroes for the new millennium!

Martha believes that with her love, she can help Daisy...until a disturbing series of strange occurrences leads her to believe that her little girl may not be as innocent as she seems." Deadly Impact (2009)—Sean Patrick "Young Indy" Flannery and Joe "I don't wear a hair piece!" Pantoliano star as cops out for revenge on a deadly assassin in this fast moving action thriller. Drawn Together!: The Movie—" The incorrigible cast of the most offensive animated reality show ever to air is back, and they're starring in their very own feature-length movie! When the mystery-solving musician Foxxy Love notices she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped—something they've never been able to do before—she realizes their show has been canceled. Determined to get back on the air, the gang travels to Make-A-Point-Land in order to get a point (and get back on the air). With more depravity than could have ever been shown on TV, this is the definitive Drawn Together experience." Judas & Jesus—It's German, it's about Judas Iscariot, and it's animated in a surprisingly adorable fashion. K-20: The Fiend With Twenty Faces—"It is 1949 in Japan, in a world where World War II never happened and the nobility system established in the Meiji Era is still in place. An extreme divide exists between the upper and lower classes, with 90 percent of the country's wealth being held by the upper class. The capital of Teito is in crisis with the emergence of a phantom thief known as 'The Fiend (Kaijin) with Twenty Faces' or simply 'K-20.' Heikichi Endo (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is a circus acrobat who is deceived by K-20 and is set up to take the fall for the phantom thief. Using his incredible physical dexterity, Heikichi wages war against K-20 in order to clear his name, fighting alongside K-20's next wealthy target, Duchess Yoko Hashiba (Takako Matsu), and her fiancée, brilliant detective Kogoro Akechi (Toru Nakamura). But what is the ultimate decision Heikichi has to make?" The Korean—"A Big City Mob Boss is betrayed by four criminal associates who disappear with his loot, his girl and more importantly, his pride. With only hours until his arrest, he calls in the deadliest 'cleaner' on the eastern seaboard to track down these dogs and finish them. Now the four of them hole up in Pittsburgh and try to turn the tables on the man known only by the moniker 'The Korean'." Necrosis—"Six friends arrive at a secluded cabin to enjoy a long weekend in the snow. Little do they know that their vacation spot is located on the site of the infamous Donner Party Massacre - a tragic event in 1846 when a group of snow-bound settlers devolved into madness and turned on each other in a cannibalistic frenzy. When an unexpected snowstorm hits, the cursed ghosts of slain Donner Party members are resurrected, determined to exact their revenge. Are these true demonic entities or is 'cabin fever' bringing out fears and paranoia, causing friends to turn against each other as reality deteriorates around them?" Do you need more incentive to watch this? It stars TIFFANY. Yes, that Tiffany. Make it a double feature with Deborah Gibson's Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus. Never Say Macbeth—"Danny, a science teacher, tries to reunite with his ex-girlfriend Ruth, who has dumped him to become an actress in Hollywood. Stumbling into an LA theatre during auditions asking: "Is this the audition for Macbeth?" he starts a series of unfortunate events that not only curse the production, but his ex-girlfriend as well, all but ruining his chances for love. Never Say Macbeth is a high-spirited no-holds-barred comedy about the biggest taboo in theatre." Night of the Pumpkin—"On Mischief Night a pumpkin man stalks party-goers, but this movie is not the typical monster/slasher cliche... No. Director 'Bill Zebub' introduced the true indie spirit to this traditional Halloween-themed story. It has the visceral elements that you expect - gratuitous nudity, gore, and a campy flavor, but everything else breaks away from what you know." Savage Drums/Jungle Hell—A Sabu double feature! In Jungle Hell (1964), the loin-cloth clad lad fights off witch doctors and a flying saucer. In Savage Drums (1951), he takes on the Commies! The Take (2009)—A crime family saga set in 1984, starring Tom Hardy and Brian Cox. Uncertainty—" Every choice has a consequence. But what if the flip of a coin could trigger two separate but parallel destinies? Joseph Gordon-Levitt (500 Days of Summer) and Lynn Collins (Wolverine) star as Bobby and Kate, a young New York couple at a crossroads whose lives are about to take very different heads/tails directions: A visit to Brooklyn leads them to gentle discoveries about family, loss and each other, while a day in Manhattan plunges them into an urban nightmare of pursuit, suspense and murder. Olivia Thirlby (Juno) co-stars in this uniquely powerful thriller written, produced and directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, the award-winning filmmakers behind Suture, Bee Season and The Deep End."
