POPCORNOctober 4, 2014 | 4:30pm
FREE Screening in El Rey’s Theater @Egyptian
Presented by Secret Sixteen & Jumpcut Cafe
BEYOND FEST is proud to partner with SECRET SIXTEEN and JUMPCUT CAFE to share with the film freaks of Los Angeles a rare 35mm screening of the 1991 horror cult classic POPCORN!
An outrageous love letter to B-Movies, Horror fans, and Film Festivals, we thought there was no better way to close out BEYOND FEST than with a movie that basically mirrors the experience of being at BEYOND FEST itself! Albeit, with slightly more murder than your average night at the Egyptian.
The fledgling film department of the University of California, Berkeley has problems in gaining recognition, and film professor Mr. Davis has an idea how to overcome them… He and his students organize an all-night horror film festival to be held at Dreamland, an abandoned movie theater. Dr. Mnesyne, owner of film memorabilia, provides them with appropriate gimmicks for the films chosen for the festival. As the festival begins, a homicidal maniac stalks the theater blurring the lines between film and terrifying reality.
SECRET SIXTEEN, headed by filmmaker and film collector Mike Williamson, presents cult films once a month at JUMPCUT CAFE in Studio City on 16mm film for free. If you like POPCORN, you’ll love what’s being shown on glorious celluloid every month at Los Angeles’ best micro-cinema. Find SECRET SIXTEEN and JUMPCUT CAFE on Facebook and Twitter and join in the fun. BEYOND FEST may have come to a close, but the cinema madness continues year round at SECRET SIXTEEN and JUMPCUT CAFE!
Now let’s grab a Schlitz, and enjoy the Reggae music filled horror show freak out that is POPCORN!
