The Loft Cinema is Letting the Staff Pick Movies Starting with Tonight's 'Invaders From Mars'

Posted By on Thu, Nov 21, 2013 at 5:00 PM

Loft Staff Selects is a new series kicking off tonight at the Loft Cinema. They're handing over the wheel to the staff for one night a month, letting them program the movie of their choice. The series starts with Tobe Hooper's (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) 1986 action-packed remake of Invaders From Mars, starring Louise Fletcher, Hunter Carson, and the recently deceased cult actress Karen Black. Trust me, any movie that features Louise Fletcher in full Nurse Ratched mode gulping down a living, breathing, squirming frog is worth watching.

The movie starts at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 for Loft members and $6 for everyone else.

Next month, Loft Staff Selects will be presenting Ken Russell's hallucinogenic, bad trip masterpiece Altered States. Go easy on the brownies for that one, kids.
