A movie many of us grew up watching on TV but not on the big screen! Now is your chance! Join us for the screening of 1970’s film Little Big Man! Stay for the Q & A following film! “How does this film stand in 2022?”

Recounting the so-called old "West" through the eyes of a white man raised as a Native American, Arthur Penn's 1970 adaptation of Thomas Berger's satirical novel was a comic yet stinging allegory about the bloody results of American imperialism. As a misguided 20th-century historian listens, 121-year-old Jack Crabb (Dustin Hoffman) narrates the story of being the only white survivor of Custer's Last Stand. White orphan Crabb was adopted by the Cheyenne, renamed "Little Big Man," and raised in the ways of the "Human Beings" by paternal mentor Old Lodge Skins (Chief Dan George), accepting non-conformity and living peacefully with nature. Violently thrust into the white world, Jack meets a righteous preacher (Thayer David) and his wife (Faye Dunaway), tries to be a gunfighter under the tutelage of Wild Bill Hickock (Jeff Corey), and gets married. Returned to the Cheyenne by chance, Jack prefers life as a Human Being. The carnage wreaked by the white man in the Washita massacre and the lethal fallout from the egomania of General George A. Custer (Richard Mulligan) at Little Big Horn, however, show Crabb the horrific implications of Old Lodge Skins' sage observation, "There is an endless supply of White Men, but there has always been a limited number of Human Beings."

"An endlessly entertaining attempt to spin an epic in the form of a yarn." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"An American classic, Little Big Man seeks to rectify Western history with this engrossing account of the colorful life of 121-year-old Jack Crabb." - 

Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle

"One of the great films of the 1970s." - Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

ADVANCE TICKETS ONLINE WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!   CHECK BACK HERE SHORTLY OR AT THE DARK ROOM HORROR WEBSITE!

Step aside Pennywise... These Killer Klowns from Outer Space are outta this world literally! and they re packing deadly popcorn guns and cotton candy cocoons!

When Mike and his girlfriend Debbie warn the local police that a gang of homicidal alien-clowns have landed in the nearby area (in a spaceship shaped like a circus big-top, no less), the cops are naturally sceptical. Before long however, reports are coming in from other anxious residents detailing similar run-ins with the large-shoed assailants. There can no longer be any doubt the Killer Klowns from Outer Space are here, and they re out to turn the Earth s population into candy floss!

"Truly something special for genre fans or for those with a love of fun, imaginative films with a ridiculous premise, classic soundtrack, and a blackly humorous edge." - Andrew Pollard, Starburst

"A far more interesting horror movie threat than they have any right to be, and that's all thanks to the cleverness of the Chiodo boys." - Charles Webb, MTV

"Those on the hunt for something miles away from the norm that showcases truly inspired moviemaking minds, Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a superb cult distraction." - Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com

"A fun and occasionally unsettling cult film that is well worth a watch for B movie enthusiasts or horror fans." - Michelle Kisner, The Movie Sleuth
