BLUE VELVET THUNDERBALL
MALLRATS Beer Dinner (1995)A three course meal paired with Oskar Blues Beer!
Kevin Smiths sophomore outing as director (and second ode to slackers), MALLRATS stars Jason Lee and Jeremy London as a pair of emotionally-stunted yet lovelorn pals who attempt to get over their respective heartbreaks with a day at the mall. Like a live-action Mad Magazine comic strip, MALLRATS features a tornado of sexual antics, wild adventures with blunt-wielding layabouts Jay and Silent Bob and the machinations of two ex-tremely unpleasant baddies (played by Michael Rooker and Ben Affleck). non-stop zany fun, MALLRATS is a very silly comedy told with a voice that could only come from Kevin Smith.
With a menu featuring a homemade corndog, a food court sampler and ice cream sandwich, this one-of-a-kind event is not to be missed!

Joe Bob Briggs Presents: BLUE VELVET (1986, 35mm)Midnight movie icon Joe Bob Briggs in person to introduce the film!David Lynch cemented his reputation as an uncompromising visionary with BLUE VELVET, one of the most controversial films of the 1980s, burrowing beneath the surface of idyllic suburban America to reveal a sinister underworld of sex and violence. After stumbling upon a severed human ear, a young college student (Kyle MacLachlan) becomes obsessed with investigating its origins and gets entangled with a nightclub chanteuse (Isabella Rossellini) and her psychopathic lover (Dennis Hopper). A masterfully eerie, depraved psychosexual nightmare and one of the greatest films of the 1980s.
Action Pack: BRIDESMAIDS CHAMPAGNE PARTY(2011)In the movie that set the standard for women-driven comedy (not to mention bridal showers), Kristin Wiig shines as Annie, a woman tasked with the most daunting challenge known to womenkind: serving as the maid of honor. Shes a hot mess, but shes a lovable hot mess, and its impossible not to root for her, even as she falls prey to an over-achieving nemesis (Rose Byrne), a noncommittal douchebag (Jon Hamm) and a motley crew of bridesmaids, including Melissa McCarthy in her most hilarious role to date. Your ticket includes champagne (if youre 21 or over, otherwise you get Helens pink lemonade) in a flute that you can use to toast over and over again, then take home!
DINOSAURS TV With Michael Jacobs Q&A (1991-1994)Livestream Q&A with series creator Michael Jacobs.Critics called it an endearingly bizarre little half-hour, pleas-ingly self-referential and actually quite sophisticated, a com-edy about puppet dinos that addressed issues of environmental-ism, sexism, censorship, racism, religious fanaticism, puberty, corporate iniquity and drug abuse. Join us for three episodes plus a livestream Q&A!
THE GOONIES 30th anniversary(1995)From the hilarious and quotable exchanges to the positive reinforcement of how triumphant life can be when you have great friends, this is the definition of a feel good movie. Whether youre 78 or 11, whether youve watched it four-hun-dred-and-fifty-two times or youre seeing it for the first time, THE GOONIES never changes. It never degrades. It remains a smart, thrilling volcano of adventure that makes the world a better place. It also has ghost pirates.
DARK STAR: H.R. GIGERs WORLD (2015)Both a mesmerizing introduction to Gigers oeuvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, Belinda Sallins definitive documentary DARK STAR: H. R. GIGERS WORLD shares the intimate last years of the artists life and reveals how deeply heresided within his own artistic visions. The film also addresses Gigers complex relationship to the art world, where he defied traditional categories and embraced commercial projects for musicians including Debbie Harry, Korn, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and the Dead Kennedys.
Kids Camp: THE LAND BEFORE TIME (1988)Introduce your child to Littlefoot, Cera, Spike, Ducky and Petrie, and follow them on their first journey together - an ex-citing quest to find the lush, legendary Great Valley.

This delightful classic is the adventure that started it all, and it continues to capture the hearts of viewers young and old.
Big Screen Classics: THUNDERBALL (1965)From the outset, 1965s THUNDERBALL was meant to be the biggest James Bond adventure ever. And it was adjusted for inflation THUNDERBALL made over a billion dollars, bested only by 2012s SKYFALL. Set in Paris, London, and Ian Flemings beloved Nassau, this film features perhaps the most beautiful roster of Bond Women seen before or since, and Sean Connery at his most assured in the role. Jet packs, the Aston Martin DB5, and a killer theme song by Tom Jones help make it the ultimate James Bond cinema experience. On its 50th anniversary (and on the eve of SPECTREs long-awaited return to the big screen), we reacquaint ourselves with James Bonds biggest battle against his deadliest enemy.

FULL METAL JACKET (1987)Stanley Kubrick takes on Vietnam with results that are intrigu-ingly humorous and ingenuously brutal. This isnt your average war movie. No, this movie is insane... in the captivating way that only Kubrick could pull off. There can be no doubt in your mind having seen this film that the old clich is true: War is Hell -- an absurd, tedious, bloody, wet-your-pants Hell.

Aaron and Jack agree that they must com-bine forces to battle Satan, who is the true killer. What follows are several planet-shaking adventures that culminate in several planet-crushing showdowns with Satanist ninjas, thrift store demonoids, and many, many heads being banged into objects.
Mondo X Chiller: THE BEYOND (1981, 35mm)Slight on story and heavy on atmospherics and extreme vio-lence, this is probably director Lucio Fulcis most feverish and accomplished film released during his horror and gore heydays of the 70s and 80s. Fulci has an intensely visual eye - when he isnt gouging it out - and never shies from onscreen violence. The set pieces are too nume
