The Rocky Horror Picture Show [35mm]

directed by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick (1975)

This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).

The film, co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien, bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.



Sat 1 Nov


directed by John Carpenter starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Donald Pleasance (1978)

Anyone who’s ever watched a horror film in the last 35 years knows the story of Michael Myers, who as a child, butchered his sister with a kitchen knife. Committed to a mental institution and watched over by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance), he engineers his escape 15 years later, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night to terrorize anyone who gets in his way, including babysitter Laurie Strode.

Dumb & Dumber [35mm]

directed by Peter Farrelly & Bobby Farrelly starring Jim Carey, Jeff Daniels (1994)

“Kick his ass, Sea Bass!” Few actors were as seemingly unstoppable and ubiquitous as mid-90s Jim Carey, and in no year was that more apparent than 1994: in addition to his recurring gig on In Living Color, Carey was in theaters every four months, with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and finally, Dumb and Dumber.

While the first two films were aimed squarely at adolescent boys, Dumb & Dumber took a stranger tack, guided along by the Farrelly brothers’ oddball comic sensibilities. Twenty years on, this film about two dimwitted friends on a cross-country adventure retains some of the sharpest jokes of Jim Carey’s career. 20th Anniversary!

Open Windows

directed by Nacho Vigalondo starring Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey, Neil Maskell (2014)

Nick’s a lucky guy. Tonight, he’ll be having dinner with Jill Goddard, the hottest actress on earth. She’s promoting her latest movie and he’s won the main prize in an online contest. Then he gets a call. Some guy named Chord explains that dinner has been cancelled. And it’s Jill’s fault: she’s a high-maintenance diva, and everybody hates her guts. Chord says he can make up for it. He offers Nick the tools to spy on Jill from his computer for the rest of the night, in a way that no fan could dare dream of. The terrible truth begins to reveal itself. It looks like Chord has set up the whole situation, with Nick playing a part in a much bigger plan…

Raw Force

directed by Ed Murphy starring Cameron Mitchell, Vic Diaz (1981)

Welcome to Warrior’s Island, burial ground of disgraced martial arts masters! When the Burbank Kung Fu Club travels to this mysterious island, they quickly find themselves facing the bloodthirsty vengeance of flesh ripping, kung fu fighting zombies, gun-toting white slave traders and a band of strange monks, who may be the only key to explaining the madness.

Edward Murphy’s Raw Force is a virtual smorgasbord of over the top sleaze, mixing zombies, cannibals, outrageous action, gore, copious amounts of nudity and starring exploitation greats Cameron Mitchell and Vic Diaz.

Shock Waves

directed by Ken Wiederhorn starring Peter Cushing, Brooke Adams, John Carradine (1977)

In the dark days of World War II, the Nazi High Command ordered its scientists to create a top secret race of indestructible zombie storm troopers – un-living, unfeeling, unstoppable monstrosities that killed with their bare hands. They were known as The Death Corps. No member of this horrific SS unit was ever captured by the Allied Forces – and, somewhere off the coast of Florida, they have survived…
