Event description

Description

This Spring the Revue Cinema unleashes some of the rarest, most compelling, and intriguingly perplexing deep dive masterpieces in lauded thespian Nicolas Cage’s filmography with UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage.


The first of many instances wherein Cage defied direction by arriving to set with an inexplicable accent, a strange toupée, and colored contact lenses. PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED landed Cage a leading role in his uncle Francis Ford Coppola’s film only to find himself under constant threat of being fired due to an array of questionable acting choices (Cage based his midwest accent on the “Pokey” character from GUMBY). The curious yet effectively sweet PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED could be seen as Nicolas Cage’s BACK TO THE FUTURE—but you know, way weirder. Starring Kathleen Turner, who was famously turned off by Cage’s antics, this time-travelling fantasy sees Cage as mid-century greaser and aspiring crooner. One of his more peculiar, yet admirably committed performances, Cage in PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED, when viewed today, offers the film some its most charming eccentricities.

Best UnCaged Moment: Cage singing “I Wonder Why” with a baby Jim Carrey

About UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage

This Spring the Revue Cinema unleashes some of the rarest, most compelling, and intriguingly perplexing deep-dive masterpieces in lauded thespian Nicolas Cage’s filmography with UnCaged: The B-Sides and Rarities of Nicolas Cage. Mined from some of Cage’s most criminally underrated direct-to-video thrillers, this will likely be your first and only chance to see these ‘80s and ‘90s oddities theatrically. From rarely-screened ‘90s erotic thrillers, to obscure Can-con biopics, and time travelling fantasies, we have four (plus one mystery film) Cage entries screening every Thursday night in March. This retro isn’t for the casual Cage-er, it’s for the devoted, the aficionados who wish to move beyond the obvious A-list Cage and unlock the darkest depths of his imagination. Presented without irony and with a respect for theatrical presentation, UnCaged offers a treasure trove of Cages to discover.

Programmed by Alicia Fletcher and Brendan Ross
