Once a staple at theaters nationwide, the midnight movie is now something most experience at home.
Appropriately enough, the inaugural film even has “Midnight” in its title: “15 Till Midnight,” an independent, R-rated, sci-fi film released last year.
Made for an estimated $200,000, the mind-warper of a movie involves two parallel worlds that collide, impacting the life of one man who finds himself pursued by mysterious, shadowy figures known as The Knowers.
“It’s not your run-of-the-mill, no-budget indie,” said James Hawley, who helped coordinate the screening. “I think you’ll dig it.”
Hawley said if this screening goes well, more cult films are ready to unspool at VZD’s, at a rate of one a month.
Beforehand, starting at 9 p.m. Jack Acid and Trey K 47 spin a three-hour DJ set as Pirate Audio, with no cover charge. For more information, call 524-4200 or visit vzds.com. —Rod Lott
