Mandy

Saturday, April 20th, the historic #babcocktheatre reaches into the dark embrace of the fissure, pulling out another fantastic film for our ongoing monthly Late Night Series. This time, Panos Cosmatos’s hallucinatory, cosmic revenge masterpiece, MANDY comes to the screen to melt your mind and destroy your senses. Red and Mandy live a happy life together in the peaceful woods of the Shadow Mountains in the year of 1983. Their peace is disrupted by a malicious cult, whose leader targets Mandy, believing her to be his prophesized partner. Destroying their lives, Red is left with nothing but a broken mind and a plan to reap the souls of the cult members in an act of violent revenge, fueled by pure sadness and hatred. One of the most visually stimulating films of the last decade, MANDY is a droning dark fantasy that feels like an 80s paperback novel and sounds like abominable doom metal. That means you need to watch it!!

Ed Wood

April 13th, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of one of acclaimed director Tim Burton’s best films, ED WOOD! A wonderful dramatization of the life of Edward D. Wood Jr, this film uses Burton’s best early imagery to tell the story of someone considered one of the worst directors of all time. In 1950s Hollywood, Ed Wood ditches his position as a set worker in an attempt to make his own films. Sparking a friendship with the reclusive and elderly Bela Lugosi, Ed follows his dreams of making movies for the masses, despite his very clear lack of talent for the job! With the help of L.A’s other social outcasts and oddballs, such as Vampira, TV psychic Criswell, European wrestler Tor Johnson, and the local transvestites, Ed plans to make unforgettable dramas and monster movies, while simultaneously hiding his desire to appear as a woman from his girlfriend.
It’s one of the best films about films out there, and one of the strangest biopics of them all, and at the age of 30, ED WOOD has not lost an ounce of entertainment value!

April 13th, GARBAGE DAY is coming back! This time around, our bizarre series celebrating trash cinema is getting a new addition in the form of Ed Wood’s PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE! Largely considered one of the worst films ever made for multiple decades, this is arguably the ultimate film in the era of atomic-age space schlock! And what’s more, tickets for this Garbage Day film are only going to be ONE DOLLAR! Yeah! and this will play directly after our 30th anniversary screening of ED WOOD, the biopic drama all about the man who made this very film! It’s an awesome double feature!
