Chivalry is certainly NOT dead! Join the Chivalry Club for a display of revelry and laughs aplenty! The men don vests and the ladies dress in their finest attire for a montage of good spirited wit and commentary on the social cues of modern society. Chivalry Club looks forward to sharing their affinity for ascots and finely aged scotch with the beautiful people of New York!
Come one, come all, it's Trainwreck Cabaret, San Francisco's most unusual variety show. From the stage of the Dark Room Theater in the Mission District, Trainwreck captures the old-world charm of vaudeville with a dark, new-world twist. It's weird and wild, sexy and sublime, hairy and hilarious, a showcase for the independent side of our City's creative underground. Now in our second year, Trainwreck's growing troupe of talented performers includes comedians, sword swallowers, puppeteers, musicians, singers, burlesque dancers and more.
Why Trainwreck? It sometimes is! And it's always entertaining. We ask our performers to go out on a limb and grasp the unusual fruit, take a chance, and create something wonderful. Spend an unforgettable evening with us and witness the oddities, laugh at the geeks, swoon for the dancers and swing with the singers. There is truly nothing like it!
In the tradition of Mystery Science Theater 3000, except you can't tell which ones are the robots. - David Manning
Cinema is our culture's dominant art form.
It holds up a mirror to who we are.
It reflects our society, our dreams, our hopes, our fears.
Our films are how future generations are going to judge us.
Unfortunately, most of them suck.
Seriously, though - ever notice how you can't walk down the street or open a magazine or stand in line at a store or simply exist without ads for some dumbass multi-zillion dollar movie about a talking kangaroo
being shoved down your throat?
And then they expect you to pay fifteen dollars to see it in some googolplex, and after sitting through a half hour of commercials? Or watch it on DVD and have to sit through even more commercials and anti-piracy ads that you can't skip past? Doesn't it all just piss you off?
If so - or if you just like to have a good time - then Bad Movie Night is for you.
Laugh with the hosts riffing on the movie. Yell your own comments. Try to figure out what the hell "Skull Films!" means. Help yourself to the free popcorn. Enjoy the non-alcoholic beverage of your choice purchased from the store across the street. Don't worry if the guy behind the counter glares at you. He does that to everyone.
Best of all, only pay six measly bucks (and ninety-nine measly cents).
I'd like to think that I'm relatively knowledgable, but somehow, I had no idea that they made four of these movies! (And you can tell I'm being totally serious because of the fact that I'm ending my sentences with exclamation points!
I remember the first one, of course...
But who knew it became a whole series? Who?
Your hosts Sherilyn Connelly, Mikl-Em, and Dan Foley
apologize for Sherilyn's utter laziness this week. (Almost as lazy as making a third sequel to Lethal Weapon...)
