Secret Cinema Presents: Trailer Trash and Green Films

Trailer Trash-feature

The Secret Cinema is returning to Phoenixville’s historic Colonial Theater on July 28th with a presentation of Trailer Trash, a non-stop orgy of rare, original preview “trailers” advertising some of the Secret Cinema’s favorite exploitation, sexploitation, science-fiction, bikers, horror, rock musicals, beach movies, and bloated big budget bombs of the 1960s and 70s. All trailers will be shown from archival 35mm prints (with several in true, IB Technicolor) on the Colonial’s big screen.

The presentation will also include vintage drive-in messages, theater commercials and date strips, from the 1950s and beyond!

The Secret Cinema is also returning to the American Philosophical Society Museum on July 24th, to present The Beauty in Nature: Short Films from the Cinema Archive.  This unique program will include a careful selection of vintage 1920s-1960s educational films, newsreels, cartoons and even home movies focusing on different unusual aspects of plants, flowers and agriculture. This screening will coincide with the museum’s current exhibition, Through The Looking Lens: Cornelius Varley’s Wondrous Images of Art and Science, 1800-1860.

If optics and photography are more your speed, then mark October 16th on your calendars when the Secret Cinema returns to the APS Museum to present it’s second in this two part series in honor of Varley’s work, Lured By Lenses: Short Films from The Secret Cinema Archive, this time devoted to films about optics, telescopes and photography.
