The Frida Cinema is announces a new series: ANIME MOVIE NIGHT! We'll be kicking it off with an exciting new partnership with Crunchyroll, as we join them in presenting a one-night-only screening of KABANERI OF THE IRON FORTRESS!

During the industrial revolution, mankind is threatened by a sudden emergence of undead monsters who can only be killed by piercing their heart through an iron plate. Those bitten suffer the terrible fate of becoming one of them. Called “Kabane,” these monsters explode in number, forcing the Hinomoto people to build fortress stations and barricad themselves inside. Only steam locomotives, the Hayajiros, can travel between them... From Tetsuro Araki, director of Attack on Titan and Death Note, the spectacular Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress unfolds in a series of episodes - all of which will be presented in this special 3+ hour event!

WE ARE THE FLESH (TENEMOS LA CARNE)

Mind-blowing, disturbing, polarizing, shocking, mesmerizing, and altogether original, director Emiliano Rocha Minter's TENEMOS LA CARNE (WE ARE THE FLESH) is a surreal art house mind-bender that defies categorization. Classified by RottenTomatoes.com as Science Fiction & Fantasy, Horror, perhaps Catherine Bray of Variety puts it best in a section of her review: "A brief synopsis barely hints at the intensity with which the Mexican shocker We Are the Flesh unleashes its joyously demented portrait of humanity."

No one under 18 admitted.

STARSHIP TROOPERS: Friday Night Freakouts

An adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's military science fiction novel, Starship Troopers takes place in a not-so-distant Fascist future, when Earth is at war with a race of giant alien insects. Little is known about the Bugs except that they are mercilessly violent and intent on the eradication of all human life - a result, it's suggested, of having been provoked by the intrusion of humans into their habitats. A Mobile Infantry travels to distant alien planets to take the war to the Bugs, leading to one relentlessly violent and gruesome battle after another, all the more exhilarating thanks to Verhoeven's reliable use of state-of-the-art special effects, attention to detail, and breakneck pacing.
