Super-8 Surprise

Thomas Stockman's Super-8 Movie Madness offers you fifteen-minute long samples of the violence, titillation and comedy of classic films in the glorious Super-8 film medium, but that's only part of the series' appeal. Stockman's idea of "classic films" includes Abbott and Costello and the Three Stooges as well as exploitation flicks and blockbusters like Star Wars. You never know just what you'll see condensed down to its essence. For example, tonight you'll enjoy a brutal combo of Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon, Boris Karloff in The Devil Commands and completely underrated sci-fi gem Silent Running, which stars Bruce Dern as a forest ranger protecting a massive starship containing the last of Earth's flora. But you'll also experience the 1934 horror-puppet nightmare The Devil's Ball with a special live score courtesy of keyboardist Royale. Two other silent films will get the "Royale" treatment, but their titles are a secret at the moment, because Stockman wants to surprise you. So come out and be surprised from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Way Out Club (2525 South Jefferson Avenue; 314-664-7638). Admission is $4.
