EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

SUGAR IN THE RAW

Lil Anders / 1978, USA

56 min / 16mm

Sugar (Cindy Lynn) is hired by the mob to track down a man and make him pay in this rare Golden Age porno. Written and directed by adult film actress Lil Anders, this low budget hardcore thriller provides a feminine touch. Still following the expected tropes of the single-reel low rent porno, Sugar in the Raw distinguishes itself with a tenderness toward the protagonist giving Sugar a touch of depth and even an surprise romance. In the end, Sugar must decide if her loyalties fall with the criminal syndicate that hired her or her target, a youthful Mike Ranger, who she has developed feelings for.

something sweet… [CANCELLED]

EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK!

On March 24, the Seattle Erotica Cinema Society is proud to share out newest addition to our vintage 16mm archive, Sugar in the Raw. For the first three months of the year, the Sprocket Society has their 16mm equipment at the Grand Illusion Cinema, giving us the opportunity to share the rarities that we occasionally stumble upon on film.

Last year, we exhibited Flip Chicks (1973) with Georgina Spelvin with a couple of short “beaver films” from the late 1960s. It was so much fun being able to recreate a modern version of the grindhouse experience by showing old, faded 16mm films that likely played in the small porno theaters in the 1970s. So we’re excited to have found another relic of the 1970s, although this time this is a rare adult film that was written and directed by a porn actress, Lil Anders.

Boogie down to the theater for a secret 1970s feature film with one of the foxiest far-out stars of the era.

What this film lacks in glitz and polish, more than makes up for in fun and enthusiasm.

Peace, Love, & Hardcore.

After a long hiatus, we have returned with a new event of nearly 50 year-old media.

On Tuesday, May 28, we are again teaming up with the Sprocket Society to present some old-timey dirty movies. We cannot divulge the titles as they come from private collections. But what we can say is that on May 28, we will be presenting the kind of film program that would be watched in small venues that catered to the “raincoat” crowd in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but in a larger and less seedy atmosphere.

We will be showing two short films from the 1960s, before a very low-budget 1973 feature. Personally, I have a soft-spot for the erotica of the 60s and early 70s as there’s a palpable optimism and experimental ambition to these films that have largely languished in trash bins or forgotten in attics. And the narratives that quickly became the over-used, but always amusing, tropes of pornographic films were new.
