Sculptor and performance artist Matthew Barney's epic five-part "Cremaster Cycle" will have an exclusive one-week engagement. The surreal cult films, which haven't appeared on L.A. screens since 2003, employ Celtic mysticism, hallucinatory Busby Berkeley-style musical sequences and gender-bending sexuality to dazzling effect.
