Retropath!: John Frankenheimer’s SECONDS

Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath! has you covered. Specializing in the best flicks to stumble onto the screen, this series is guaranteed to deliver the wildest that cinema has to offer.

“US suburbia boredom is treated in an original manner in this cross between a sci-fi opus, a thriller, a suspense pic and a parable on certain aspects of American middle-class life.” – Variety

“The film’s greatest strength is its dynamic black and white cinematography courtesy of James Wong Howe, who instills the film with an intense, paranoid feel.” – Under The Radar

“A bleak and noirish Frankenstein thriller whose DNA is threaded with zeitgeist-heavy satire.” – PopMatters

Rock Hudson is a impressive force in this bleak, TWILIGHT ZONE-esque story of a middle-aged banker who elects to undergo experimental surgery to grant him a new life. Starting over, however, is never as easy as it sounds. Equipped with a distinct paranoia in its quick, fragmented editing and bizarre cinematic camerawork, Seconds is a sci-fi horror curio decades head of its time, and still just as effective.

Our screenings would be nothing without our freaky sponsors: The Beguiling and Eyesore Cinema!
