Description

Late Shift at the Grindhouse - Wednesdays get weird when Late Shift hosts Ross Meyer, Joe Derderian and Aaron Holmgren join up with Chef Katy Meyer from Trumpet Blossom Cafe to dig up low-budget b-movies, horror and gore-fests, and camp classics for your viewing pleasure. Buy your ticket and take a ride in our Time Machine! Punch in and earn a bonus!  $2 pints of Pabst Blue Ribbon!  PLUS-- special custom trashy trailer reel curated by Ross with cheap swag and prize giveaways!

 

Dinner & a Movie - Fill up on cinema! Working with select downtown restaurants, FilmScene partners to present occasional delicious special events.

 

The menu will include, of course, (Vegan) Soylent Green; Asparagus & Spring Veggie Wraps with herbed tofu cheese & coconut bacon, served with a side of sweet potato fries, aioli, and fresh greens; pistachio-lime cookies; and green popcorn. (I'm embracing the Green theme.) 
We will use a ton of local ingredients and everything will be fun & delicious. We want to gently nudge you toward thinking about how your food choices have a direct impact on the future of the environment. Eat a vegan meal now and perhaps save future generations from Soylent Green...? :) 
You also get a free draft beer because, after all, this is Late Shift at the Grindhouse. 

 

Soylent Green

 

In the year 2022 food is scarce but people need to eat. 

 

"Lively futuristic yarn with a splendid climax." - Halliwell's Film Guide

 

"Like Rollerball it’s exciting to see a future that looks so much like the '70s." - Sean Sweeney, Amoeba.com

 

"Soylent Green is not only better than I remembered, it's actually a good movie." - Casey McCabe, Movie Magazine International

 

Soylent Green is landmark screen science-fiction, a riveting entertainment and a cautionary tale that holds a mirror to a tomorrow rife with ecological disaster.  Working well again in the futuristic genre following Planet of the Apes and The Omega Man, action titan Charlton Heston portrays Thorn, a detective prowling the dank streets of a polluted, overpopulated Big Apple gone rotten in 2022.  He's trailing a murderer - and the trail leads to a stunning discovery.  Vividly realized, Soylent Green's world gains its power not just from its special effects but from its heart - a human dimension magnified by the performance of legendary Edward G. Robinson in his moving screen farewell.
