Screenings in the Bay (Monday to Friday): The Purge: Election Year, Manic Cop 2, Midnites for Maniacs

Hey guys! We're at the beginning of a very busy week! I noticed a very authority heavy theme, but that might just be me... We're starting things off with Maniac Cop 2 (with director William Lustig in person!), then we're coming home from camp Tuesday, and ending he week with a Snake Plissken double feature and the release of The Purge: Election Year. And it's about time for a quick giveaway... but I'll save that for later. Read on to see what else is happening this week at the movies.

Though thought dead and gone, Cordell is back from the grave and ready to wreak his merciless havoc once more."

School is out! Summer is here! AND SO IS DISMEMBERMENT!! This month, we're packing up the sleeping bags, confiscating the weed, and practicing the fine art of french kissing by the fire as TERROR TUESDAY GOES TO CAMP! In true camping fashion, each week's presentation will be a complete mystery. Because you never know what you're going to get when you climb aboard that broke-ass school bus. Maniacal crazies with a thirst for blood? Abominable beasties with a passion for chaos? An inbred lunatic dancing in the moonlight? From beloved favorites to impossible obscurities, anything is fair game. So stock up on tube socks, flip your parents the bird, and prep your face for some exclusive menu offerings at TERROR TUESDAY GOES TO CAMP!! Fun is guaranteed. Survival is not. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
