Before Tony Soprano. Before Henry Hill. Before whoever the hell Joe Pesci played in Casino…..there was Fredo. See how it all started when we show you the greatest one-two punch in cinematic history; The Godfather, followed by the even Mafia-er Godfather Part II on September 23rd. Pacino! Brando! Duvall! And, to a lesser extent, Caan and Keaton. If, like us, you choose to pretend that Francis Ford Coppola stopped making movies in the mid-80’s, join us to see the greatest crime saga of all time, in its entirety. See Michael Corleone’s rise from innocent young soldier to Mafia (we would like to point out, for survival purposes, that the Mafia absolutely does NOT exist) crime lord! See Sonny get pissed off at every opportunity with very little provocation! See Tom Hagen be a cool-ass mother f*cker at all times. It’s an offer you can’t refuse. Godfather drink specials all night.
MONDAY (Day 2)
Over here we’ve been fans of a little indie filmmaker for a while now. Perhaps you’ve heard of him. Makes quiet, polite family dramas. His name is Quentin Tarantino, and if you know how much bullshit was in that first sentence then you can’t miss a double dose of the man who’s resurrected more men than Jesus Christ (their careers anyway). On September 24th we’ll be showing Pulp Fiction, followed by Inglorious Basterds. Heroin overdoses! Nazis! Police Rape! Brutal baseball bat slaying! It’s the most fun you can have without an 8-ball in your pocket (we don’t judge). Come dressed as your favorite Tarantino character for a chance to win some fabulous prizes. Pick up a Royale with Cheese and get at us!
TUESDAY (Day 3)
Remember being a little kid? Remember how innocent and sweet and cute you were, hair all done up in pigtails, eating your giant lollipop and being as gross as you want with no repercussions? Then, remember having all that sweetness and innocence robbed from you when you watched two of the darkest, most scarring children’s movies ever made. Given to us by the twisted, brilliant mind of Jim Henson, we’re showing you The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth all in one night. Allow David Bowie’s bulge to bring back all sorts of repressed memories. And what’s the one thing that brings it all together? A Pajama Party! Break out your best onesie, grab your Teddy and a bottle of scotch and get ready to transport yourself back to a simpler, more terrifying time.
WEDNESDAY (Day 4)
I bet right now you’re all expecting us to ask you a really clichéd question. Something along the lines of who you may call, in a certain situation. Well y’all can suck it, because we don’t play cliché! Actually, sure we do! You wanna find out who you gonna call? You got two options. One, give Ray Parker Jr. a ring and ask him, he’s probably free, or two, you can join us on September 26th for a full night of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, the Nerdy One and the Black Guy! That’s right, we’re showing Ghostbusters I and II, all in one night, in all their sci-fi, comedy, horror mash-up glory! Not only that, but we’re having a costume contest, with prizes for the best. Come as Egon, or come as Slimer (you gotta supply your own slime though, we can’t do everything), or even Rick Moranis, what the hell. Drink specials and hilarity all night long!
THURSDAY (Day 5)
Been feeling a massive hole in your life since The Next Generation went off the air? Is there a void in your heart that no punk-ass Captain Janeway, Sisko or Archer could ever even hope to fill? On September 27th let us take you back to a time when space men were men. When Captains were either bald and British or they TALKED. LIKE. THIS! Join us for the best of the best. Watch the Original Crew battle the platinum-mulletted, evilly suave space Spaniard KHHAAAAAAAAAN in the best of the originals, Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan, then watch the new guys take on the less suave but no less evil Borg in the equally fantastic Star Trek: First Contact. Get out your best uniform because we got a costume contest with great prizes.
FRIDAY (Day 6)
Ladies, start your engines cause we're taking you on an adventure way, way, WAAAY out west. So far west, it's south - as in Down Under! Join Mitzi, Felicia, and Bernadette on a Fabulous Friday holiday hip-hip-hip-hip horray!

SATURDAY (Day 7)
Need something to really tie your life together? Tired of just bowling, driving around, and the occasional acid flashback? Break out the Kahlua and half-and-half man, because your f*ckin’ troubles are over. Achievers, Nihilists, Spinals, Pacifists, Chinamen, Free-spirits, Pederasts (not really!), Video Artists, Brother Shamus’, known Pornographers and f*ckin’ Veterans. Get out your finest bathrobe and get your ass down to the Denman for Lebowski Bash! You want a costume contest? We can get you a costume contest (with nail polish!). One Jesus per group please, because, you know, 8 year olds. F*ckin’ amateurs welcome. We got your poison, Caucasians, Oat Sodas, and Sarsaparillas for all you Strangers out there. And of course everyone’s favourite movie, The Big Lebowski! If you haven’t seen it, there is NO better time to start (and also, what the hell is wrong with you?!). And if, like us, you’ve seen it a hundred times, you’ll know to just shut the f*ck up, don’t go over the line and hold on to your johnsons. So put down the Thai stick and buy your tickets! It’s the most fun you’ll have without going to a cash machine for $1000 (or $100, if you’re like Brandt)
SUNDAY (Day 8)
After a week of partying, a week of classics, a week of contests, a week of laughs, scares, thrills and tears, we’re gonna end this thing with a bang. We’re gonna gun it to 88 and make sure you kids remember this week for the rest of your life. That way, when they finally get that Delorian working in real life, you’ll know exactly where it is in your past you’ll want to go back to. That’s right, on our final night, September 30th, we’re showing everyone’s favorite non-space-or-hobbit-related trilogy; Back to the Future’s 1, 2 and 3! Watch Marty McFly make out with his mom! Watch Doc Brown hi-jack a train! Watch old Biff argue with young Biff! Drink specials all night long. And we need you all to go deep into your closets for this one, because we’re having the Ultimate 80’s costume contest! Get out the sun-jammers and acid washed jeans because the prizes are off the wall!
