HEAVY MIDNITES: Heavy Metal

NOTE: this screening will start at 12:30am.We’re taking you beyond the universe to a future you’ve never seen before, an adults-only midnight movie rite of passage based on the wild ideas and even wilder visuals of the fantastical magazine of the same name. So strap in for an animated anthology that beautifully expands the boundaries of science fiction and fantasy while gratuitously pushing the limits of sex, violence and rock ‘n roll. It’s awesome! From the dystopian NYC of 2031 to the outer limits of space, following warrior maidens, hulking barbarians, glowing orbs and more, Heavy Metal is stoned, funky, funny and far out. There’s a raging soundtrack featuring Black Sabbath, Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick and other rock gods, pitch-perfect voice acting from SCTV faves John Candy and Eugene Levy, plus tons of cartoon boobs, graphic gore, drugs and profanity. We guarantee Heavy Metal’s louder and nastier than ever; it’s gonna pop your eye sockets, blow your ear drums and boil your mind!
Dir. Gerald Potterton, 1981, 35mm, 86 min.
