Burning Man 

When: Sat., Oct. 5, 9:30 p.m. 2013
If you’re in the mood for transvestites and avant-garde cinema, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque is really your only consistent option here in Northeast Ohio. For one night only, you’ve got the rare opportunity to see Flaming Creatures, a nontraditional film featuring women thrashing around, half naked, “in a nonstop orgiastic frenzy.” Ahhh! Critics have called the film both the most liberating underground movie of the '60s and the most important avant garde film ever made in America. It’s only 45 minutes long, and the director, one Jack Smith, was born in Columbus, Ohio. It screens this evening at 9:30 p.m., but the memories of the images therein will surely stick with you for ages. (Allard)
