Movie of the Week: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

What the Bleep!? Down the Rabbit Hole. An advanced screening of the expanded, "director's cut" of this "quantum fable." Marlee Matlin stars as Amanda, a wedding photographer who gets a new lease on life through the wonders of science and a lot of New Age hooey, brought to her courtesy of CGI, a chatty pre-adolescent basketball player, water that flows backward into a fountain and all sorts of other weird stuff. Every now and again, her story turns into a documentary, and we get talking-head segments with thinkers, gurus and quacks, including Amit Goswami and Ramtha. Life, apparently, is quite literally what you make it: nothing is real, save for what you imagine, and there's nothing to get hung about. Please pass the bong. Koo's Art Center, 530 E. Broadway Ave., Long Beach, (310) 455-2847. Fri., 7:30 p.m. $15, with proceeds aiding the refurbishment of Koo's. RSVP suggested.

Mail your press releases (and a videotape, if available) to Special Screenings, OC Weekly, 1666 N. Main St., Ste. 500, Santa Ana, CA 92701-7417. Or send e-mail to gregstacy@earthlink.net. All materials must be received at least two weeks before the screening.
