192 East 8th Street, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
As the IFC Center describes it: "David Lynch once described his stunning debut feature simply as 'a dream of dark and troubling things,' but the unclassifiable ERASERHEAD is so much more: an expressionistic headtrip, a Grand Guignol nightmare, a pitch-black comedy of manners, and even a deeply personal allegory about the (post-) nuclear family. Amidst a monochromatic wasteland teeming with smoke and shadows, Jack Nance’s wire-haired wage slave Henry struggles to navigate the horrors of mutant offspring, sinister hallucinations and, most terrifying of all, his new in-laws." How can you resist?

This week there will be no potluck, but feel free to bring snacks to eat during the movie. We're starting a little later than usual. Screening starts at 8pm sharp.
Also: PLEASE RSVP, even if it's just to say maybe. This is being held in our living room, which is not infinitely large, so we need to know how many people are coming, and whether we should expect you.

On deck for March 3: Orson Welles' The Complete Mr. Arkadin.

Maybe! It would give me a chance to schlep over a Dominion expansion in advance of boardgames, freeing up my backpack to carry other stuff on the day of.

Which would be super duper great. We have been playing Dominon like fiends.

I'm making an executive decision to stay home tonight. I haven't kicked this cold yet.

Sorry I missed this. Hope it was great! I will probably bring a Dominion expansion on the 16th.
