Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday): Midnites for Maniacs, Brazil

Happy Friday everyone! And I hope you're all having a good Christmas Eve Eve. Well, it's finally happened... the slowest weekend for screenings in the bay area that I can remember. There are a couple of things going on though, and the one I'm the most curious about is this week's Midnites for Maniacs double feature. It's not exactly horror... not even close actually. But the intro that Jesse Hawthorne gives with the movies he shows is good enough to get me pumped for just about anything. And he's got a lot of stuff coming up in the next couple of weeks, be sure to check out the calendar here.
