ADVANCE TICKETS

What’s more exciting than seeing Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I on the big screen?  Seeing it back-to-back with the big-screen premiere of its brand new sequel, Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. II!  And what’s more exciting than that?  Seeing them in an audience with the films’ director, and legendary TROMA Entertainment founder, Lloyd Kaufman,  as he celebrates his 50th Year in Filmmaking!

To open the evening we’ll be screening RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOL. I, Kaufman’s 2013 release that took fans back to Troma High School, setting of 1986’s Class of Nuke ‘Em High and its two sequels.  Don’t look for Dead Poets or Breakfast Clubs at a TROMA high school, though – this institute of learning boasts a glee club which has mutated into a gang of vicious monsters known as The Cretins, who are hell-bent on destroying the school and devouring everybody in it! Our innocent protagonists, Chrissy and Lauren, are tasked with stopping this gang of mutants and monsters, while simultaneously trying to take down the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate.  How will they possibly pack so much drama and intrigue in just one film!?

After the film’s thrilling conclusion, we’ll be treated to performances by TOXIE’S FOXIES: TROMA BURLESQUE!  Curated and performed by members of our Rocky Horror shadow cast K.A.O.S. and special guests, our performers will be bringing some of Troma’s most iconic characters to life with some naughty thrusting, bending, and scantily-clad gyrating!  

As if that’s not enough, the night will end with the AUDIENCE PREMIERE of RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOL. II!  Troma and Lloyd’s latest continues the adventures of Lauren and Chrissy as they valiantly fight against the most evil villains to ever descend upon the World!  A hilarious sci-fi saga that further’s Kaufman’s famed attention to themes of social justice by ripping stories straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. Can Lauren and Chrissy – and, um, Kevin the Wonder Duck… – save Tromaville High School – and the world!?

LLOYD KAUFMAN will be joining us in person for this special event!
Come celebrate 50 Years of Filmmaking by one of cinema’s greatest living pioneers!
