Pardon the back-to-back IFC Center flogging, but I can hardly resist such shameless teasing from theater boss John Vanco:
I’m writing to let you know that one of the most exciting events in IFC Center’s young history is coming up this Wednesday night at the 7:20pm show of El Topo. I can’t say who it is, but we are honored to be hosting a rare, in-person appearance by a living legend and longtime fan of El Topo to introduce the film. Trust me -- you won’t be disappointed.
Emphasis his. Don't forget this was a film championed by a couple of dirty hippies named John and Yoko; I'll put my $10.75 on the living one to drop in and pay her respects. Buy your own tickets here.
UPDATE: Notice the part on the ticketing page offering children's tickets for $7? Do not take your kids to see El Topo. You may as well ply them with acid on Chirstmas morning.
UPDATE TWO: Word over the Reeler Wire says the ultra-mega-super-special guest scheduled to introduce tonight's screening has canceled her appearance. Or his! Who knows? OK, I do. Anyway, she won't be coming. but the movie will unspool and fuck you up all the same, so save your tickets.
