When a drifter discovers a very special pair of sunglasses, it gives him a whole new perspective on life. See, these are a kind of x-ray specs. They reveal the true nature of the world we live in: the power elite is in fact an alien race, feeding off our apathy through the promotion of rampant consumerism. Far-fetched? Tell that to Donald Trump…

Hecklevision!: Bad Movies We Love
Director: Roger Christian


Oct 16 10:45 pm

In what could be construed as a cry for help, John Travolta made it his mission to bring Scientology leader L Ron Hubbard’s sci-fi novel to the screen. He succeeded only too well. The movie was a big budget disaster. Travolta stars as a 9 foot tall alien (a Psychlos) lording it over the humans in a Rasta wig and KISS boots. Fortunately Vancouver’s own Barry Pepper is on hand to win the world back for mankind.

Copresented with Northwest Comedy, this screening will be shown in Hecklevision: allowing you, the audience, to text your running commentary, barbs, put downs and snark up there on the screen.

"Illuminates the glory and tumult of the band’s rise with unexpected candor.. it’s the rare truthful and beautiful film about the rock ’n’ roll life." Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
