The Clay Theatre is known for their hilarious Midnight Movie specials and is often prone to crazy contests before their showings on Saturday nights. When I was a lame ass freshman in the dorms, living on campus at SFSU [aka middle of nowhere], my dorm-mates and I would constantly look forward to Saturday nights because we would do crazy adventures that usually managed to be an all-nighter of partying, riding MUNI, partying while riding MUNI, ridiculous costumes and even better, movies. Some of the movies that have been honored by the Clay in the past include: Amelie, The Warriors, Army of Darkness as well as Office Space, complete with printer smashing contest before the show.
This weekend, they’re showing the blockbuster, Oscar-worthy breakout performance of our own Governator â€”Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Now, I know you’re thinking that you already have this on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD and ITunes format. But what is more fun than sneaking in a flask to one of the greatest movie houses in San Francisco and shouting “I’LL BE BACK!” on cue with everyone else in the theatre? Yeah, answered your question, asshole.
Tickets are $9.50 and $8.50 for students! Its gonna set me back since I don’t get paid for this shit, but nonetheless, I will be there with my Jameson, ready to watch ridiculous car crashes, Sarah Connor go crazy and Edward Furlong, back when he was still jailbait. Rawr.
ps: James Cameron, plz do more epic action pictures. Its like you disappeared or something.
What: Terminator 2: Judgment Day!
Where: Clay Theatre
When: Friday and Saturday at, you guessed it, midnight
Why: Because its badass and you need something to do with that girl you picked up at the bar so she doesn’t think you’re an asshole.
