This neo-noir mystery set in LA's hipster scene is more than a bit weird. A24 knocked it back because it's a bit to out there for general audiences, but it might be a cult classic. The follow-up from the director of It Follows isn't a horror movie
ArcLight Cinemas is excited to announce two Q&As for the film - UNDER THE SILVER LAKE. ArcLight Hollywood will host the Q&As on Fri 4/19 and Sun 4/20 after the 7:00 PM shows. Centers on a man named Sam who becomes obsessed with the strange circumstances of a billionaire mogul's murder and the kidnapping of a girl.

Hail Satan?
Out Friday, April 19,
Arclight Hollywood and The Landmark

"As charming and funny as it is thought-provoking, Hail Satan? offers a timely look at a group of often misunderstood outsiders whose unwavering commitment to social and political justice has empowered thousands of people around the world."

Friday, April 19  
The Landmark

"A noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Huang Jue) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you've seen before, especially in the now extended from Cannes 59-minute-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist-and us-through a labyrinthine cityscape.
