PLANNING OUR NEXT WEIRD WATCH PARTY FOR 7/9/2022

We will tentatively schedule July’s first Weird Watch Party for Saturday, July 9 at 10:15 PM.

Currently, we can only confidently stream movies from subscription sites Netflix, Amazon Prime, or, (technically) Hulu for our watch parties.

Kast.tv, which allows streaming Tubi and YouTube free content, is a again a possibility, but it is now asking for a $10 yearly subscription, followed by (if I am reading this correctly) a 3-month waiting period after signing up. They also appear to have a temporary “free summer streaming promotion” up right now; sounds good, but I don’t know when it ends and I’m suspicious of the service given the bad experience last time. You can suggest Kast/Tubi selections but we also need to have a back-up from another service ready in case they flake again.

If you’d like to attend our watch party, then the important thing is to RSVP in the comments, where you can make a screening suggestion, or just say you plan to be there. When making your nomination, simply comment with “I think we should watch Weird Movie on Netflix” or “How about Weird Movie 2: Electric Boogaloo on Prime?” You can also pitch in as to whether you prefer the afternoon or evening time slot.

When the party is set to begin we’ll announce it in three places:

  • On this site (if you’ve signed up for regular email alerts via the sidebar you’ll also get a notice that way)
  • On our Facebook page
  • On Twitter

Make your nominations and/or RSVP in the comments below.

If you would prefer an afternoon showing to an evening one, let us know. In general the evening screenings have been better attended.

Add your input in the comments, please.

CANONICALLY WEIRD (AND OTHER) REPERTORY SCREENINGS:

This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time, however. Like the one below:

  • Saturday, 6/25, Los Angeles, CA: Batman Returns (1992) at The Montalbán Theatre. With numerous guests in attendance for a Q&A, including screenwriter Daniel Waters, makeup artists and hairstylists, and the guys who played Acrobat Thug #1and Terrifying Clown #1 (!)

Joe Bob Brigg’s annual exploitation celebration for mutants is back, and the horror host announced some of the movies and guests in a video posted to his Facebook page. The reason we’re mentioning it is because one of Saturday night’s movies is Bubba Ho-Tep (2002) (the second half of a double feature, paired with with Rock ‘n’ Roll High School). Lots of other movies, guests and acts, but Bubba’s the highlight for weirdophiles.
