KinoKlub presents The American Underground at Hidden Door Festival

          KinoKlub descends into the Cinema vault at Hidden Door on 2nd April to bring you a selection of underground and avant-garde films from the USA for your enjoyment.

Hidden Door is FREE during the day so from 2.30pm – 5pm we will be showcasing the experimental work by a series of pioneering American filmmakers from the dawn of the avant-garde.

For our main evening screening at 7.30pm, we’ll be showcasing some of the most iconic work by auteur Kenneth Anger, king of the American underground and one of the most influential independent filmmakers in cinema history. His films variously merge surrealism with homoeroticism and the occult, and have been described as containing “elements of erotica, documentary, psychodrama, and spectacle.”

KinoKlub DJ Baron will be on hand to get you in the mood from 7pm, with a DJ set plus American underground visuals after the screening to end your avant-garde evening with us.

KinoKlub presents Creepy Winter Tales

KinoKlub returns to The Banshee Labyrinth (purported to be Edinburgh’s most haunted pub) to present a selection of creepy surrealist tales to chill your bones, including films by Germaine Dulac, Jiri Barta and an adaptation of the M. R. James classic ghost story “Oh Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, my Lad”.



KinoKlub presents Conspirators of Pleasure

KinoKlub returned in April 2013 with another site-specific screening of one of our favourite surrealists Jan Svankmajer in newly-opened erotic boutique White Rabbit on Broughton Street. And what would be more apt for this setting than screening Conspirators of Pleasure (Czech title: Spiklenci slasti) focusing on six characters’ bizarre fetishes, alongside Svankmajer’s characteristic stop-motion animation?
