Current Series

The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will present two partnership series during the Fall 2015. The first explores the influence of Roger Corman on a generation of filmmakers that adapted his particular spirit of cinema to independent film and Hollywood. The second is a late night series celebrating the work of Joe Dante, one of Roger Corman’s closest collaborators. Individual titles and screening times will be announced soon!

ArthouseFW – Students of Roger Corman

The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW continues with a series that explores the direct influence of B-movie master and iconic independent producer Roger Corman on a younger generation of filmmakers whose work would carry on Corman’s innovative spirit to independent film and Hollywood studios alike. The series follows these “students” through the decades, as they adapt Corman’s pioneering sense of filmmaking into definitive careers of their own.

ArthouseFW – Late Night

Kick back with cocktails and dinner at Café Modern, then enjoy a late-night cult classic. The Café Modern bar remains open until 10 pm for night-owl moviegoers! Individual tickets are $7 for general admission, and $5 for Reel People, Modern Contemporaries and LSFS Members.

This installation of ArthouseFW Late Night celebrates the work of Joe Dante, one of Roger Corman’s most memorable collaborators and one who held tightly to Corman’s out-of-this-world sensibilities. Dante’s films bring fantasy and reality together in stories that are both human and monstrous, funny and terrifying, light and dark. Join the Lone Star Film Society and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for a late-night series that is sure to keep you awake.

Past Series and Screenings

The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW joined the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth in two series for August 2014. The first was a celebration of Japanese film director, animator, mangaka, illustrator, producer and screenwriter, Hayao Miyasaki. The second took a look at the career of master-filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, showcasing six of his pivotal films, including two silent features with live musical accompaniment.

Miyazaki at the Modern

Throughout a career that has spanned six decades, Miyazaki has attained international acclaim as a masterful storyteller and brilliant creator of anime feature films. Along with Isao Takahata, he co-founded Studio Ghibli, the famed Japanese film and animation studio. The success of Miyazaki’s films has invited comparisons with American animator Walt Disney, British animator Nick Park, and American director Steven Spielberg. He is considered one of the most popular and influential animators in the history of cinema.

Together these filmmakers have created some of the most iconic films and characters from the 80s and 90s. The Modern bar will stay open until show time, allowing audiences to grab a drink or two before the film rolls. Join the Lone Star Film Society and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for a late night series that is sure to keep you awake.

Samurai Series

The ArthouseFW – Samurai Series presents select films that highlight the unique and poetic life of the Samurai. Each film explores a new perspective of life as a warrior, whether the battle is for life, love or upholding the strict expectations of society. The series will play alongside the Kimbell Art Museum’s exhibition Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection in the brand new Renzo Piano pavilion. This installment of ArthouseFW is presented by the Lone Star Film Society and the Kimbell Art Museum.

Silent Sundays

The ArthouseFW – Silent Sunday films present the visionaries of early cinema who pioneered film and narrative techniques, shifting movies from a simple means of entertainment to a serious artistic medium. Each film in this series will be presented alongside unique live musical accompaniment in the Kimbell Art Museum’s Renzo Piano pavilion. This installment of ArthouseFW is presented by the Lone Star Film Society and the Kimbell Art Museum.

Auteur Series

The first installment of the ArthouseFW – Auteur Series emphasizes the Spanish director Luis Buñuel’s surreal criticism of society throughout his career. The selections highlight Buñuel’s stylistic coherence that has defined him as one of the most accomplished auteurs in cinematic history. The series will play at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth as part of an ongoing partnership with the Lone Star Film Society.
