Television is reality, and reality is less than television (Videodrome 2nd Show)

  • Jul 9, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Cinema Paradiso Headquarters

Videodrome is not only my favorite film by director David Cronenberg, it was also my introduction to his work. I knew nothing about the film beforehand other than seeing the iconic picture on James Wood getting rather cozy with his tv.

I bought the movie based on that image alone. I didn’t know who David Cronenberg was nor did I care to know what the movie was about beforehand. After the credits rolled I knew I found something special and like a junkie I needed more. Andy Warhol called Videodrome “A Clockwork Orange of the 1980s”.

Release Date: February 4, 1893

Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1

Running Time: 89 Minutes

Country: Canada



David Cronenberg is a Canadian filmmaker whose films tend to explore the parallels between sex and violence. A journey made rather hard at least when releasing his films in his native country. Canada like the rest of the world (excluding America) regulates their films through their government.

This was Cronenberg’s third film scored by Howard Shore, who is probably best known for his work on the Lord of the Ring films with Peter Jackson. Apart from The Dead Zone, Shore has worked with Cronenberg on all of his films since The Brood.

This Showing will be a little more intimate than Boogie's since it will be held at the Headquarters and space is limited.

Since space is limited I appreciate some notice if possible if you have rsvp'd but are not able to attend the showing. It would allow others others to rsvp who might be able to attend.

A warning for anyone with bad allergies. We do have a few dogs and a cat residing here.


I look forward to seeing you there.

    If anyone wants to order food let me know ahead of time. I can order for you and have you reimburse when you arrive. That way the food won't arrive half way through the film and interrupt the group.

    The Headquarters is in a decent area in the NE so there are many food options. I will be taking orders if any one would like any thing delivered.
