WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF FIRE
Sunday, August 21st 8pm
What To Do In Case of Fire? tells the humorous and touching story of six former creative anarchists who lived as house squatters in Berlin during its heyday in the 80s when Berlin was still an island in the middle of the former eastern Germany. At the end of the 80s they went their separate ways with the exception of Tim and Hotte, who have remained true to their ideals and continue to fight the issues they did as a group. In 2000, with Berlin as Germany’s new capital, an event happens forcing the group out of existential reason to reunite and, ultimately, come to grips with the reason they separated 12 years ago.

MTV junkies Beavis and Butt-head awaken one day to find their beloved TV stolen. On their adventure to do a murderous smuggler’s wife, they encounter an FBI agent with a predilection for cavity searches, two rather familiar looking ex-Motley Crue roadies, Mr. Van Driessen singing “Lesbian Seagull”, a little old lady, and, of course, Mr. Anderson and his trailer. Can the Great Cornholio save the day? Let’s hope so! Written by Chris Hunter <DrEvilGuy200>
In honor of Beavis and Butthead, Nachos will be provided.

CRADLE WILL ROCK
Sunday July 24th 8pm
Cradle Will Rock is a 1999 drama film which chronicles the process and events that surrounded the production of the original 1937 musical The Cradle Will Rock by Marc Blitzstein. Tim Robbins, in his third film as director, adapts history to create this fictionalized account of the original production, bringing in other stories of the time to produce this commentary on the role of art and power in the 1930s, particularly amidst the struggles of the 1930s labor movement and the corresponding appeal of socialism and communism among many intellectuals and working class people of that time.
In telling the story of The Cradle Will Rock—a leftist labor musical that was sponsored by the Federal Theater Project (FTP) only to be banned after the WPA cut the project and diverted its funds elsewhere–Robbins is able to tie in issues such as labor unrest, repression by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, and the role and value of art in such a tumultuous time. -Wikipedia

“Leon Bronstein is not your average Montreal West high school student. For one thing, none of his peers can claim to be the reincarnation of early 20th century Soviet iconoclast and Red Army hero, Leon Trotsky. When his father sends Leon to public school as punishment for starting a hunger strike at Papa’s clothing factory, Leon quickly lends new meaning to the term ‘student union’, determined as he is to live out his pre-ordained destiny to the fullest and change the world.” -Alliance Films
