The world may not have been ready for POOTIE TANG back in 2001. In fact, it still might not be ready. But those of us that have carried the torch over the past decade find like-minded company with increasing frequency. This brand of absurd comedy is hard to classify, and the unavoidable truth is that it is kind of an incomplete movie. Nevertheless its spirit soars - here we have a superhero taking on an evil corporation and protecting kids from junk culture, who also has been slaying the hearts of women since he was tiny, and speaks his own language that everyone understands! 

What POOTIE TANG also gives us is an early glimpse at some very talented people - written and directed by Louis C.K., it stars Wanda Sykes and J.B. Smoove, and is even more enhanced by Chris Rock (the idea started with a sketch on his show). Join us for the rare opportunity to watch a 35mm print!

This screening kicks off our new series Movie Party, which will present all kinds of good times on the big screen.

Screening on 35mm film. Tickets only $5!
