Son Of Dante’s Inferno: THE MOVIE ORGY!

2650orgyAfter a perfect Friday night Roger Corman double-feature of THE ST. VALENTINE’S DAY MASSACRE (1967) and NOT OF THIS EARTH (1957), which Joe Dante believes hasn’t been screened here in 30 years, today promises to be even more better (to quote IDIOCRACY). Tonight at 5:30 Dante again unleashes THE MOVIE ORGY, the brilliant cultural collage he and Jon Davison cut together and that played across the nation to hungry college audiences (ahh, the good ol’ days) and was even sponsored by Budweiser at one point! Last year’s showing was truly one of the great movie-going nights of my life. Here’s a note from Mr. Dante on tonight’s screening:

Frankly, I had no idea that last year’s screening of this crazy 16mm cinematic farrago (“A 2001 Splice Odyssey”), my first project in conjunction with Jon Davison, would be so rapturously received; I had thought it so dated that nobody would get it. I guess the spirit of ’60s anarchy survives. Anyway, here it is, back again for one night only, and once again admission is free because even I don’t know who owns the rights to all this found footage. Last year’s edition ran nearly 5 hours, this is an expanded edition running nearly 6 (I found a bunch of missing stuff). Lucky You!

We’re all lucky for this amazing artifact and since New Bev manager Michael Torgan unveiled cozy, spacious, cup-holding seats to coincide with Dante’s Inferno, the number of chairs dropped to around 230 and I expect this screening to be packed due to the word getting out. Come loaded for bear, or just come loaded.

And say hello. Just…DON’T CROWD ME!
