Pick a day


Wednesday, May 15, 2013's Lowdown

You know what's damned near impossible for me? Sitting still and being quiet in a dark room for two hours, which makes movie viewing pretty much a no go. But! Wanna know a place where you can watch a movie with your amigos and eschew regular movie manners? That would be any movie night at the Arcata Theatre Lounge. Move around, BS with buds, yell at the screen, drink a beer. It's film viewing for the ADHD generation!

Some of the most squirmy nights are the semi-weekly Science Fiction Pint and Pizza Nights featuring old, gloriously awful sci-fi/horror/fantasy flicks. And there's one this Wednesday! So gather your snarkiest critic comrades together, get a pitcher and a pie and provide your own Mystery Science Theater 3000-esque commentary to The She Beast (1966). The plot focuses on ... oh, who the fuh cares? Watch the trailer below and/or check out your other Wednesday Lowdown options farther down.
