After years of being stuck inside a trash can, the Garbage Pail Kids are finally free. And farting up a storm.

What even are the Garbage Pail Kids?

These grody Cabbage Patch Kids knock-offs introduced themselves to the world as parody trading cards in the mid-80s. Kids loved them, even though they had halitosis and gas and came with names like Adam Bomb and Handy Randy. The cards were so popular and gross that teachers banned them from schools. But, unfortunately for the gatekeepers of good taste, nobody banned these freaks from the box office, so we ended up with this cult piece of trash: Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie.

This famous stinker is about a teenage nerd named Dodger and the grubby little creatures who fall in love with him. One day, while schoolyard bullies beat the shit out of Dodger, a magic trash can gets knocked over, andVoila! Out come the Garbage Pail Kids, a group of noxious monsters who wont leave our teen protagonist alone. Sure, they cant stop farting, but they mean well. And Dodger is in no position to turn away friends.

Some people have called this the worst movie ever madeand maybe theyre right. The plot is nonsense and the animatronic costumes are horrifying. But, to quote Andy Warhol, Extreme bad and extreme good is very good. Whats no good is in between. Andys line totally applies to Garbage Pail Kids: The Movie, which proudly belongs at the very bottom of the trash can.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Patron Services Manager at cris@nwfilmforum.org
