It’s true that sometimes dead is better, but for two New England filmmakers, the story of Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY was far too alluring to leave buried. That’s why John Campopiano and Justin White spent nearly five years seeking to uncover the story – from book, to film, to cult status – amounting to the most comprehensive look at the horror classic ever produced.

Encore presentation! If you missed the 2016 installment then now is your chance to catch Philly’s titans of found footage comedy as they unite for a live feature-length program of Star Wars insanity! It’s gonna be a cosmic clash between the video cabaret of craziness that is Chris Cummins’ Sci-Fi Explosion and the adrenaline-driven analog anger of Eric Bresler’s Video Pirates. Expect oddities, rarities, and a ton of Jar Jar Binks. And maybe a Porg or two.
With special guests Wookiedelphia performing live at the top of the show.
Recommended for mature audiences.
Doors 7:30, Show 8:00, $10 admission
