Totally 80's Movie Freak Out
**NOTE: If we sell out of presales there will still be tickets available at the door on a first come first serve basis the day of the event! Thanks for making this so popular. It will be a blast!!**
A marathon of six gnarly movies from the 1980s that will totally gag you with a celluloid chainsaw! All shown on 35mm, we're keeping the titles secret until they appear on the screen, but trust us: these movies will blow your mind. This isn't a pointless wallow in retro 80's nostalgia (although they're loaded with plenty of shoulder pads, tubular slang, feathered hair, and Vuarnets), instead it's a 10-hour expedition into a world of jaw-dropping movies you have never seen before three of them have never even appeared on video in the USA!
We're showing a musical! A slasher movie! A juvenile delinquent film! A trucker movie! A blaxploitation flick! A cop film! But they all flip the script: it's a trucker movie if Hitchcock made trucker movies, a juvenile delinquent film about punk rockers, a slasher film made by one of the most acclaimed and controversial arthouse directors of all time, a forgotten cop film based on a cult classic 1984 novel, a cocaine-soaked musical set in one confined location, and a barely-released "blaxploitation" flick set in Harlem that might be one of the best thrillers of the decade.
Starring 80's icons like Michael J. Fox! Scott Baio! Patrick Swayze! Jamie Lee Curtis! Roddy McDowall! Jan-Michael Vincent! And more! More! More! Starting at 12:30pm and ending around 11:30pm, these are the wildest, most mind-bending, strangest, most criminally-neglected bombdigity movies the 80's has to offer.
