Screenings take place on the third Sunday of the month at Fruit, and the night comes packed with a free film quiz, prize raffle, custom made alt-movie posters on sale and food by Thieving Harry’s Cafe.

Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens.
