Best of Enemies

In the summer of 1968, a series of deliciously exhilarating debates put on air by a then-floundering ABC would alter the course of TV news forever. Seeking two political pundits to debate one another during the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, ABC struck a nerve with the intellectual equivalent of the Ali-Frazier fights. On one end was William F. Buckley, a pillar of the modern conservative movement. His opponent? Gore Vidal, the liberal polemic, out homosexual, and antithesis to everything Buckley stood for. With a deep-seated animosity stretching back decades that proved all too intoxicating for viewers, the bitter adversaries riveted audiences with their scathing rhetoric and explosive assault on each other’s ideologies–redefining the nature of public discourse with cutting jabs that seem civil by today’s standards. Get a front seat for this clash of brainy titans.

Shorts: WTF
State Theatre Wed, Jul 29, 2015 11:59 PM
What do a prancing pony, a rapping hot dog bun, and David Hasselhoff have in common? They’re all part of this collection of mind-melting shorts coming to the State Theatre at midnight. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry (well, probably not), you’ll get to see “Kung Fury” on the big screen. And if you don’t think “Storm Hits Jacket” is the best film you’ve ever seen about time traveling, aliens, and a witch who controls cows with her mind, then we don’t know what to tell ya. See you there.

The country that brought dynamite to the world brings us a smash hit comedy that follows the Forrest Gump-like life story of Allan Karlsson, a Swedish explosives expert who has had his finger on the trigger of some of the biggest events of the last 100 years. Karlsson’s modern-day exploits find him on the lam from a group of inept thugs after he wanders out the window of his retirement home and happens upon a suitcase full of money. Packed with Looney Tunes-esque hijinks and plenty of wry Scandinavian humor, you can expect a high body count and a whole lot of laughs in Sweden’s highest grossing film of all time.
