RetroStrange Movie Night Comedy Showcase 5/21/22

RetroStrange Movie Night returns on May 21st with a comedy duo for the ages: Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton! Our start time is 5:00pm, where we’ll show some new short subjects during the 15 minute pre-show, then Chaplin will dazzle you in The Gold Rush (1925). We’ll have a 30-minute intermission between, then Keaton stars in Sherlock Jr. (1924).

RetroStrange Movie Night: 4/20 Fest

Starting at 5:00pm Pacific we’ll whet your whistle with 30 minutes of goofy fun shorts, and then get real (silly) with Marihuana: Assassin of Youth, a 1937 anti-weed propaganda film. We’ll keep the party going after with an hour of shorts and cartoons, then our main event: The grand-daddy anti-drug propaganda of ’em all, Reefer Madness. Then, to send you off to slumber with a smile on your face 4 back to back to back to back showings of The Doughnuts.

The RetroStrange 4/20 Marathon is 2 classic propaganda features, and a dozen tripped-out cartoons and shorts that pair well with getting your smoke on.


RetroStrange Movie Night: Teenagers From Outer Space (1959)

Teenagers from Outer Space is the next movie night feature, March 19th.

The next Movie Night is this weekend! Tune in for two showings of Teenagers from Outer Space: 1st at 7:00pm Eastern and again at 7pm Pacific. Watch along on RetroStrange.TV.


RetroStrange Movie Night: The Screaming Skull

The next RetroStrange Movie Night is Saturday, February 26th! Our feature will be The Screaming Skull (1958). You may remember this film from Season 9 of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Most movie nights have been double features, but we’ll be doing things a little differently this time. Instead of two movies starting a bit too early on the west coast and a bit too late on the east coast, we are having TWO shows in the same day to accommodate our viewers in multiple time zones: 7pm EST and then again at 7pm PST.

We hope you’ll join us this weekend on RetroStrange.TV.
