The Late Show
Because awesome movies are awesome.
Friday nights, 10pm, one-night-only showings of cult classics and deeper-cut genre films.
We're excited to be partnering with the American Genre Film Archive, home to so many forgotten gems of grindhouse cinema, to present AGFA Final Fridays, with one of their films always taking center stage on the last Friday of the month; it's probably gonna get weird, but it's always gonna be a great time.
The Late Show, presented by the American Genre Film Archive. What's in the basket? The debut gutter-trash symphony from Frank Henenlotter (BRAIN DAMAGE, FRANKENHOOKER), stealthily filmed in the toilet bowls of Times Square and chock-full of demented fury. Hilarious, disgusting, and over-the-top in every way possible, this movie plays out like Herschell Gordon Lewis directing FREAKS on the set of TAXI DRIVER. A true homemade classick. Duane and his brother Belial are ex-siamese twins who arrive in New York with a purpose -- REVENGE! Against everyone! That's enough to propel any movie, but here the deal is even sweeter because Belial is a telepathic monstrosity who lives in a wicker basket. BASKET CASE features an incredibly grotesque monster puppet that will burn its essence on the surface of your brain until the day you die. It's also filled with real-life 42nd Street sleazers, stop-motion shocks and non-stop sicko fun. NR / 91 min.

Red Dawn (1984)
Set in an alternate history timeline in which the United States is invaded at the onset of World War III, RED DAWN follows a group of teenagers that flee into the mountains as Soviet, Nicaraguan, and Cuban paratroopers begin landing on their high school football field. Armed only with hunting rifles, pistols, and bows and arrows, the teens struggle to survive the bitter winter and the Soviet K.G.B. patrols hunting for them. The high school students resist the occupation through guerrilla warfare, calling themselves Wolverines, after their high school mascot. This 1984 American war film was directed by John Milius and stars Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen, Jennifer Grey, and Harry Dean Stanton. Red Dawn is noteworthy for being the first movie released with the PG-13 rating. PG-13 / 114 min.
