More participatory film viewing
Coming up at the Dark Room Theater at 2263 Mission @ 18th/19th, we’ve got Bad Movie Night (stick it on your Tribe calendar, you Internet-age thrill-seeking desperado!) for at least the next five Sundays.
We’ve taken all the guess work out of the age old question, “Will this movie suck?”
It will suck.
Every Sunday for a measly 5 bucks you can put your feet up, listen to our hosts bag a crummy movie, scarf down free popcorn and yes, you too can yell at the movie screen!!
I can’t believe they’re gonna tear apart Labyrinth on the 14th. I love that movie. That movie is how, as a teenager, I consciously realized I was gay, what with David Bowie’s area and the fab fantasy dinner jackets and all. Seriously, I’m not lying. Though now as an adult, I can see some things to pick apart; like how this who-knows-how-old Goblin King is jonesing for a fifteen-year-old girl and has no one to hang out with but a pack of dim-witted humanoids and a Mardi Gras-headed dwarf and… and… Damn, never mind, pick it all apart. Meanwhile I’m going to figure out if this explains anything about some of the men that became my ex-boyfriends.
For some East Bay real-time movie critique and subsequent disturbing personal revelations, keep an eye on Berkeley and the Act 1 and 2 Theater, where they’ll sporadically do runs of the Midnight Special, where the audience will happily dissect film favorites of the 80s and 90s.
