“Labrynth” starts at 9pm followed by “Meet the Feebles”
A combination of book club, drive-in cinema, and performance art, the Cavalcade of Schlock seeks to bring together the joys of bad movies and good friends in a pop-culture extravaganza. All summer the brave volunteers will select a theme and choose 2 films from a vast array of nearly forgotten cult classics of exploitation and B-movie cinema. They then, as a group, provide food and beverages along said theme. It’s an interactive, raucous experience that evokes the anarchic energy of a Rocky Horror Picture Show screening while taking advantage of the nicer weather in the summer months.
Films:Labrynth is a 1986 classic directed by Jim Henson and starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. In the film, “15-year-old Sarah accidentally wishes her baby half-brother, Toby, away to the Goblin King Jareth who will keep Toby if Sarah does not complete his Labyrinth in 13 hours.
This film is followed by Meet the Feebles, written and directed by Peter Jackson in 1989. In the film, “, Heidi, the star of the “Meet The Feebles Variety Hour” discovers her lover Bletch, The Walrus, is cheating on her, and with all the world waiting for the show the assorted co-stars must contend with their own problems. These include drug addiction, extortion, robbery, disease, Drug dealing, and even murder. While this is happening the love between two of the stars is threatened by the devious Trevor the Rat, who wishes to exploit the young starlet for use in his porno movie business.
