A night at the movies...

At the Jeffty Five Cineplex in Painesville, Ohio starting Friday...and simultaneously on Painseville's Channel 81 on your obsolete UHF dial (WAQZ, formerly an affiliate of no fewer than seven dead networks!):

Cartoon: "Jackie Kashian: Los Angeles Pet Owners" 

Cartoon: "April Richardson and Jimmy Pardo: Go Bayside!: The California Bandsaw Massacre"

Newsreel: The Onion Review for 12 May (despite preview image, still linked)

Serial:  The Maria Bamford Show

Short Western Film: The Tonto Woman (based on an Elmore Leonard short story)

Daniel Barber - Short Film - The Tonto Woman from Knucklehead on Vimeo.

Feature: Night of the Eagle (aka Burn, Witch, Burn!)--based on Fritz Leiber's first novel.

Second Feature: The City of the Dead (aka Horror Hotel

Anthology film: Three Cases of Murder (1st segmenthe most impressive, and no bones about it horror)

Very alternate feature: Siesta (now a dead link, an interesting though not completely successful variation on Carnival of Souls; a UCLA forum on ifeaturing director Mary Lambert, editor Glenn Morgan, and cast-members Ellen Barkin and Jodie Foster)...or Castaway (looking a bit soft in image, but difficult to pick up on the market otherwise of late...also not a perfect film, but an interesting one). Original choice here, Testament of Orpheus, didn't have any English subtitles option when I first posted this, but the current link does...for now!

Cartoon: "The Tell-Tale Heart" 

And my first film seen by myself in a cinema...a 1970 re-release of Kiss of the Vampire (1963)--rediscovered with indirect help from Jeff Segal, who guessed closely:

Organ Music: Rhoda Scott and Barbara Dennerlein
: "Yes or No"

Thanks for these links, Todd. The black-and-white movies/clips look interesting, particularly Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart."

It is an interesting interpretation...and you'll soon find that the cartoon is in color...
