Movie Junkies: Cult Classics

 

Once the festivities and chaos of the Holidays and New Year have settled down, we here at The Midnight Sun feel that after all the giving and good cheer towards your fellow humans it’s only fair that you do something for yourself. That’s why in January we’ll be presenting Movie Junkies: Cult Classics, flicks that may not have been popular by mainstream audience standards, but we like them and we’re not ashamed to admit it. If you have tastes that most people would call strange or unusual then join us January 5th and 19th to revel in the weird and the bizarre. We accept you.

What: Movie Junkies: Cult Classics. We vote on what movie we want to watch night of!

Where: The Midnight Sun Performance Space. 113 N Columbia st. Downtown Olympia

When: Tues January 5 and Tues January 19, doors open at 7pm, movie at 7:30pm

Tickets: Suggested donation at the door (no one turned away)
