Midnight Movie and a Flask of Fun


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 —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.

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year, she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze, get at me.]
