House (1977)

While our allotment of advance tickets has sold out online, some additional tickets will be available to purchase at the door on a first come, first served basis on the night of the show. Box office & doors open roughly one hour before the first film. For shows that have sold out online, in-person ticket purchases are limited to 2 tickets per person.

When a group of schoolgirls head to a creaky country home, they quickly encounter more than they (or the viewer) could have ever expected.  Nobuhiko Obayashi’s psychedelic freak-out is a brain-bursting blast of hallucinatory haunts & ghoulish guffaws, a madhouse mashup of grinning kitty cats, vibrant visuals, flesh-hungry pianos & severed supernatural heads colliding together to create a dreamlike film fantasy of unbridled insanity unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

Encounter of the Spooky Kind II

A totally gonzo, full-blast martial arts horror comedy that’s even bigger & more bonkers than its legendary (and unconnected story wise) predecessor. Hong Kong cinema icon Sammo Hung stars as a poor teahouse worker who must protect his fiancé from the lecherous advances of a wealthy suitor. But their escalating romantic rivalry explodes into a supernatural war of insane stunts and gross-out gags, black magic battles & hopping vampires, gaseous mummies, ghost girls, cockroaches and more eye-popping, gut-busting insanity than ever unleashed on screen before.
