Afternoon, everybody. We pass around a lot of links behind the scenes at Nitehawk because we’re nerds and that’s what nerds do. So for this first round-up we have badass rides in Japan, the cult of Clue and John Waters perverting the youth.

#GoodIdeas Friend of Nitehawk, Fred Schoenfeld, who owns the beautiful dine-in theater The Commodore in Portsmouth, Va, is trying to drum up support for his next theater renovation project: reviving the dilapidated Afton Theater located in an overlooked and poor section of Portsmouth called Cradock. Deserves some good vibrations, because the local press isn’t giving any. (Via The Virginian Pilot)
