Nerd Movie Night

What is it?

We show some movies. You eat some popcorn or other snacks, and enjoy them!

When is it?

Whenever we feel like having one, but we're trying for once a month...

How much does it cost?

Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nada. Not an electronic sausage.

What movies?

Good question! Suggest one on this list, and there's a good chance it will be screened..

  • World's Fastest Indian

  • Groundhog Day (strange that a Bill Murray movie has been adopted as a profound quasi-religious text across numerous denominations, but this is the situation)
  • The Man From Earth (odd hard scifi cult film about a guy coming out to his friends that he's actually a 14,000 yr old caveman who has witnessed and influenced much of human history, if it sounds like the classic Trek episode Requiem For Methuselah, it's because it's written by the same guy)
  • Alphaville (1965) It's a historic film noir scifi thing, kinda hard to watch though
  • Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai: Forest Whitaker is a mob hitman utterly dedicated to the idea that he is the modern embodiment of a Japanese Samurai and lives by actual bushido code
  • Blubberella: Uwe Bolls finally realizes how bad his movies are and effectively parodies his own work
  • Waking Life
  • The City of Lost Children
  • Limitless
  • The Ledge
  • The Holy Mountain- From the 70's, when being bizarre was assumed to be the "deepest" form of art, so the director dug himself the deepest hole of all. Zardoz is a cakewalk compared to the content here.
