Fans of avant-garde cinema will get a decidedly rare treat this week. Artist Matthew Barney's bizarre and epic "The Cremaster Cycle" will make a big-screen appearance at the Gateway. And if you want to see the five-part, six-hour-plus film project, you'll have to see it on the big screen, as it supposedly will never be made available on DVD.

Fans of avant-garde cinema will get a decidedly rare treat this week. Artist Matthew Barney's bizarre and epic "The Cremaster Cycle" will make a big-screen appearance at the Gateway. And if you want to see the five-part, six-hour-plus film project, you'll have to see it on the big screen, as it supposedly will never be made available on DVD.

Shown as a Wex at Gateway presentation, "Cremaster Cycle" will be screened in three separate parts, or - for the truly adventurous - an entire marathon for the price of a single ticket. So is it a work of high art or self-indulgence on a grand scale? Well, there's only one way to find out for yourself. Be warned: The last showing at the Wexner Center in 2003 sold out.
