This week’s trip:
Alien Love, dir. Sissy Creamcheese and MWR (2016)
The Dark Crystal original cut, dir. Jim Henson (1981)
Logan’s Run, dir. Michael Anderson (1976)
If you haven’t seen the 1981 black and white original cut of the Dark Crystal, it is completely insane. You need to see it. If you think the theatrical release is weird, you are in for a very strange journey, friend. Companion piece Alien Love is a lovely and otherworldly recent work of stop-motion animation and poetry by local artists Sissy Creamcheese (Bacchus’ Boogiers) and Michael Roberts. And of course, Logan’s Run. You know Logan’s Run. Does the robot eat people? It bothers me every day. off NE Oregon, west of 82nd by courtyard * 6 pm * free
