Cult films: what are they and who sees them? At Shelter, they are our favorite flicks, cheerfully ripping every cultural taboo. This summer Shelter Theater presents major cult classics that, like the comfort junk food we love to hate, we can’t get enough of—especially on the biggest screen in Centro! First up is the baked set’s favorite, Up in Smoke Sat, May 27th at 9 pm. Sample: “Hey how am I driving, man? [looks around] : I think we're parked.” Hosted by our favorite smokesters, Tom Frazee and Dan Rueffert who’ll discuss, um, their experiences….

On Saturday, June 3rd at 9 pm, local cult film maven, Jessica Lauren, hosts The Dark Side of the Rainbow. Also known as Dark Side of Oz, the trippy mashup refers to the overlaying of the Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon with the The Wizard of Oz. The ‘synchronicities’ where the film and album coordinately perfectly will blow you away!

Friday, May 26th at 5 pm: Cool Hand Luke. Paul Newman fights ‘the man’ and his system as a harmless prisoner in a southern chain gang, refusing to submit to the creepy bossman with his “failure to communicate.” Time magazine calls it, “A picture of chilling dramatic power.” Newman was never better!

Wednesday, May 31st at 5 pm, 9/11 Truth: Anatomy of a Great Deception. What really caused Building 7’s curious collapse that day? CIA spook Raymond McGovern calls it “a cover-up….the only question is what are they covering up?” We will have a discussion after the documentary.

Friday, June 2nd at 5 pm: Dr. Strangelove. Stanley Kubrick’s blackest of black comedies, hosted by local film connoisseur, Edward Verona. An insane general triggers a path to nuclear holocaust that a war room full of politicians and generals frantically try to stop—or enjoy. The Chicago Reader raves, “Kubrick’s brilliant Cold War satire remains as funny and razor-sharp today as it was in 1964.” It’s Peter Seller’s tour-de-force!

“So, where the heck is Shelter Theater?” Nearby! Our logo’s on the Que Pasa map in the upper left-hand corner, an easy 10-minute walk from the Jardin. See our calendar at www.sheltervg4.com for dates and online tickets. Like us on Facebook, Trip Advisor and the Civil List!
