Dir. Shawn Crahan - 2016 - 88m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special presentation! $8 General / $6 Students
Adapted from the 2010 graphic novel by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, OFFICER DOWNE concocts a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as back up, he discovers there's much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains.
“If you thought Deadpool was perverse, you ain't seen nothin' yet.” - Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News
“When Crahan is on, there's a hardcore griminess to Officer Downe that's sadistically stylized and punishingly powerful.” - Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

Dir. Don Coscarelli - 1979 - 96m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special presentation!! $8 General / $6 Students with ids
Since its release in 1979, director Don Coscarelli’s epic tale of The Tall Man, his deadly silver Sentinel Spheres, and group the small town friends who must band together to stop his dimension-hopping schemes has captivated and terrified horror and sci-fi fans around the world. An immediate success, bringing in 40 times its production budget, the film has influenced generations of filmmakers. Thirty-seven years later, PHANTASM has been finally restored to its original glory by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot and Coscarelli, with a stunning new 4K remaster and 5.1 surround sound mix from the original elements that ensures Phantasm will be around to scare the hell out of generations to come.
“(A) wildly imaginative and legitimately creepy, confronting death and mourning as part of the coming-of-age process while also delivering nutty Jawa-type critters and blood spurting out of peoples' faces.” - Katie Rife, AV Club
“One of the most idiosyncratic movies in the horror canon.” - Tom Huddleston, Time Out
“Freshly refurbished with better sound and digitally sharpened visuals for this latest rerelease, "Phantasm" remains a pretty effective fright fest.” - Soren Anderson, Seattle Times
