Coming to Brooklyn this Sunday July 10th, Wild Eye Releasing and Nitehawk Cinema present an event to sate the needs of any film freak. This ain’t no retro throw back, this is the real deal! Put your life on pause and prepare to Destroy All VHS! Not literally, I hope… but you never know what might happen after a few drinks.
Destroy All VHS is a one of a kind event celebrating the greatest home video format ever invented… VHS! At 10 PM the Play Button is pressed and the fun begins. First your eyes will be treated to tons of trailers and home movies, then a VCR demonstration by every Videovore’s favorite VHS magazine, Lunchmeat, followed by a sexy/scary clip show by the Horror Boobs.
To top it off- a showing of Friday The 13th The Orphan! If there was one reason to attend, it would be to catch this rare (never available on your schmancy DVD or Blew-ray format) forgotten classic. All screened straight from the VCR so you can revel in the fuzz, blips, grain, scratches and screeches. And if you got a problem with the way it looks get up there and fix the tracking yourself!
Did I mention that the Nitehawk Cinema rules?! Well if I haven’t yet I did just now. The theater’s located in Williamsburg Brooklyn just a few blocks off the Bedford Avenue L train stop. That’s only one stop out of the city, giving you Manahattanites no real excuse. They have a full bar and restaurant so you can get your drank and chomp on. And the icing on the cake? A VHS Museum, so you can soak in that beautiful Big Box art like a true trash connoisseur.
Both Lunchmeat and Horror Boobs will have a merch table with magazines, T-Shirts, buttons, and most importantly TAPES!!! I will personally be bringing a slew of crazy rare stuff for trade and sale. Trades are obviously preferred!!!
One more time…
