Color Out of Space



Tuesday, March 3 & Wednesday, March 4

2019 • dir Richard Stanley w/Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Madeleine Arthur, Elliot Knight, Brendan Meyer, Julian Hilliard, Tommy Chong • 111 min • DCP

Like it emerged from the fevered dreaming of a cult film fanatic, we can barely imagine a more exciting team than legendary cult director Richard Stanley (Hardware), renowned portrayer of the unhinged Nicolas Cage, and revered weird-fiction author H.P. Lovecraft. In this psychedelic interpretation of Lovecraft’s COLOR OUT OF SPACE, Cage plays the head of a family trying to find a new life away from the pressures of the big city. He has moved them all to rural New England and taken up (of all things) alpaca farming. When a mysterious meteorite crashes into their front lawn however, things get epically, frighteningly bizarre and dangerous.

“It takes a lot for a movie to out-bonkers Cage on this kind of form. Color out of Space manages it in style.”
– Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

“Everything’s out of control. Which is what makes Color Out of Space such an entertaining ride.”
– Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“[Color Out of Space is] the kind of cult movie nirvana that was its apparent destiny from the moment the cameras started rolling.”
– Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com
