If there's one thing I love it's good themed programming at my local movie theaters, and The Cinefamily is bringing it this May with their "All Of Them Witches" (title inspired by Rosemary's Baby, as seen above) series. Mixing the silly and the serious, the popular and the obscure, and throwing in a party or two for good measure, "All Of Them Witches" will be a treat for the occultist in all of us.
The series is, honestly, awesome, and it's the diversity of the programming - from Teen Witch to The Devils - that really excites me. Here's the line-up:

They have a bunch of screenings of the home runs in there - Rosemary's Baby and the UK cut of The Devils - but their smaller runs intrigue me as much. I love Bell, Book and Candle! I have never seen George Romero's Season of the Witch on the big screen! Haxan with a live score? Yes please! And an opening night party with real occult shenanigans (following what is sure to be another classic Cinefamily mix tape of footage and weirdness - I love these presentations).
If you live in LA you simply must come out to at least some of these shows. As always, they're free for members - for $25 a month you can get access to every single one of these screenings and a small popcorn to boot. Good deal.
