The Roxy Theater is proud to present Essential Cinema, a monthly series of the most iconic and important films the artform has to offer. This February, we're presenting two of Canadian visionary David Cronenberg's greatest films, both in striking 35mm.

When scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) completes his teleportation device, he decides to test its abilities on himself. Unbeknownst to him, a housefly slips in during the process, leading to a merger of man and insect. Initially, Brundle appears to have undergone a successful teleportation, but the fly's cells begin to take over his body. As he becomes increasingly fly-like, Brundle's girlfriend (Geena Davis) is horrified as the person she once loved deteriorates into a monster.
