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!

Plan 9 From Outer Space

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! In this wacked out film, space soldiers use electricity to resurrect the recently deceased, forming an army of zombie slaves in an effort to stop humanity from developing the “Solobonite” bomb, capable of threatening the safety of the universe!
