THRILL-O-TRONIC FILM SHOW, EL CERRITO, AUGUST 4


We will soil the beautiful Cerrito Speakeasy Theatre with the aforementioned matinee this Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

I get asked what our "themes" are in these programs (and ask myself, "you mean, we have themes?"). Well, here goes. . .


  • non-union actors in cardboard robot suits


  • non-union actors dressed as aliens


  • non-union actors dressed as gorilla suits


  • trailers from horrid movies


  • calypso music


  • swing music


  • early rock music


  • showgirls


  • car, cigarette and theatre snack bar commercials


  • any film we can find with unsubtle double entendres


  • surreal and psychedelic 1930's cartoons


  • 1950's "duck and cover" films


  • "educational" films that went horribly, dreadfully wrong


  • anything that provokes the response "what were they thinking?"


  • general mayhem and political incorrectness


  • and, yes, showgirls



I think that's a start. See you there.
