`The Kids Are Alright,'

the geeks are uptight

Guitar-smashing rock musicians and a sexy computer are featured in two movies opening tonight as part the LateNite series at the Bijou Art Cinemas, 492 E. 13th Ave.

"The Who - The Kids Are Alright" follows the Who from their 1967 U.S. TV debut on the Smothers Brothers show through Monterey Pop, Woodstock and into the '70s.

Twenty-two Who tunes are featured, including "My Generation," "Magic Bus," "Happy Jack" and "Long Live Rock."

The film was directed by Jeff Stein, who had unrestricted access to the Who archives.

"I Dream of Mimi" is an erotic Japanese anime in which a guy buys a computer from a street vendor and a gorgeous, naked girl pops out. She turns out to be a high performance, bio-type CPU who will do just about anything the guy wants.

Both films will be shown Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights through May 16. Tickets are $4 on Fridays and Saturdays, $3 on Sunday.
