As you may have surmised, we’re a little partial to the Golden Age of Adult Cinema around here, so we were VERY excited to hear that Casey Scott, with help from Steven Morowitz and the awesome team over at Distribpix along with Joe Rubin from distributor Vinegar Syndrome, is curating four nights of 35mm smut to NYC, as part of the In The Flesh program at Anthology Film Archives.  Tickets are $10 per showing.  (AFA members get reduced rates.)

They’ll be showing 35mm prints of four movies from the Golden Age of Adult Cinema, with some of the production staff in attendance for Q&A after the showings.

December 5, 8:00 PM – High Rise (1972) directed by Danny Stone (deceased); the film’s composer, Jack Urbont, will be attending in-person to “discuss his marvelous original score, including vocals by soul singer great Rhetta Hughes!”  According to curator, Casey Scott, “If you’re uncertain about watching an X-rated movie with an audience, never fear, this one is funny, visually stylish, and as I said in the Anthology calendar, “purely pleasurable”. It’s just so much fun!”

December 6, 8:00 PMThrough the Looking Glass (1976), directed by Jonas Middleton who will be in attendance.

December 7, 8:00 PMTake Off (1978), directed by Armand Weston, cinematographer Larry Revene will be in attendance
