RARE 35MM SCREENING!

Art guerrilla leader Shepard Fairey of the OBEY empire hosts a special screening! One of the most beloved films of the ‘80s, THEY LIVE follows a professional wrestler using hyper-advanced sunglasses to blow the lid off a transdimensional human enslavement plot. Straight-to-video aesthetics sink their teeth into a major studio budget, providing as many explosions and skinless spacemen as you can shake a cocked shotgun at. Rowdy Roddy Piper exhibits even more talent and leading man charisma than the Hulkster pulled off in SUBURBAN COMMANDO and SANTA WITH MUSCLES combined. Also featured is a tremendous amount of media paranoia, ridiculous dialogue ("Eeeugh! Formaldehyde face!") and the most impractically lengthy street fight caught on film. Whether you're a Pipermaniac, a Carpenterphile, or just despise alien invaders, this is the movie that will open your eyes to the terrifying truth about bubblegum, billboards and little old ladies.

The ticket for this screening includes a THEY LIVE poster by Shepard Fairey!
