We’re excited to welcome TRASH NIGHT, one of Boston’s best underground comedy/film events, to the Brattle starting in 2014! Once a month TRASH NIGHT selects one F-grade, sub-cult cinematic wonder and unleashes it on an unsuspecting audience – with original video weirdness seeded throughout. This is one of the rare times at the Brattle when audience participation is not only encouraged, it’s required!

THEODORE REX

(1995) dir Jonathan R. Betuel w/Whoopi Goldberg, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Juliet Landau, Bud Cort, George Newbern, Carol Kane, Richard Roundtree [92 min; digital]

Ah… the poignant saudade of the falling leaves… the excited bustle of schoolchildren returning to school… autumn is the herald of many changes… but none so tragic, some murmur, as the end of Cyber Summer.

AND “SOME” ARE WRONG AS HELL, BECAUSE WE’RE KICKFLIPPING INTO FALL WITH “THEODORE REX,” a TEEN-FRIENDLY SCI-FI BUDDY COP COMEDY co-starring WHOOPI GOLDBERG and A ’90s DINOSAUR.

That’s right: In the film, science has RESURRECTED DINOSAURS and GENETICALLY MODIFIED THEM so that they can talk. (Fun!) Whoopi, in pursuit of a killer hell-bent on RE-KILLING THE DINOSAURS, is tasked with partnering with a junior dino cop—who looks VERY SUSPICIOUSLY like he came from the TV show DINOSAURS, which had RECENTLY GONE OFF THE AIR. We’re not saying! WE’RE JUST SAYING.

THIS FILM BARELY MADE IT TO VIDEO AND RUINED FORTUNES! WHAT ARE YOU DOING WAFFLING ON ATTENDING?!??!!

This month the Brattle Theater opens its doors to us at 7:30 and we begin at 8:00 PM. ***THIS IS HALF AN HOUR LATER THAN USUAL.*** We hope this isn’t a grave inconvenience for anyone; the show should let out before 10:15.

Tickets are still $7 at the door, and include a collectable COMMEMORATIVE 1″ PIN/OFFICIAL “VENTURE CHIT”. Beer, wine, coffee and snacks are available at the concession stand in the Brattle’s lobby. And—hey, whatever happened with that WEIRD LETTER we got last month…?
