Friday, August 15 & Saturday, August 16; Midnite | Buy Tickets

This week, our month-long modern vampire series Bite This! heads way out to Arizona for Kathyrn Bigelow’s shit-kicking horror western Near Dark. The first female director to nab an Academy Award in her field, Bigelow has a kind of empathy for the devil with movies populated by bikers, bank robbers, and drug dealers. Her characters walk along the brink, toeing a line so thin that it disappears the closer one gets.
