Post-Dusk, Pre-Dawn

Twenty years ago, director Robert Rodriguez unleashed the George Clooney classic From Dusk Till Dawn to theaters. Now, VHS and Chill is teaming up with Rodeo Cinema in Oklahoma City for a Blockbusted Video screening of a VHS workprint cut of the film with unfinished monster effects, background noise, a temporary score, and visible wire work. And if that sounds like the kind of movie you want to laugh at with your friends, then good news! Talking, joking, singing, and any other legal activities are actively encouraged. January 17. Tickets, Free. (405) 235-3456 rodeocinema.org/events/blockbustedjan
