Vidiots, Armenian Film Society to Screen Egoyan’s ‘Exotica’

Vidiots and Armenian Film Society are inviting the public to a special 30th anniversary screening of Atom Egoyan’s “Exotica” on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m.
A steamy and sensual thriller of erotic obsession and a meditative treatise on loss and trauma, “Exotica” simmers with passion and pathos. Lives, loves and desires intermingle in the upscale Toronto strip club Exotica from the dancers, to the patrons, to the management.

“Exotica” won the FIPRESCI Prize at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival, as well as eight Genie Awards, Canada’s equivalent of the Academy Awards, including Best Motion Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.

Vidiots is a nonprofit video store that’s been around since 1985, and recently relaunched with a cinema at the historic Eagle Theatre in the Eagle Rock district of Los Angeles. It is a one-of-a-kind hub that inspires human interaction around film through theatrical presentations and preserving, growing and providing access to its diverse DVD, Blu-ray and rare VHS collection. The Armenian Film Society is proud to be a community programming partner for Vidiots.

Vidiots is located at 4884 Eagle Rock Blvd. To purchase tickets, visit
