#QueerHorrorNights presents a very special event at the historic Rio Cinema – our Halloween Monsters Ball: NIGHTBREED (28 OCT 22:00+).

DIRTY WORK d. Bob Saget, 1998 presented by Jellied Reels at The Castle Cinema (15 SEP 21:00).

“This relentlessly delightful and degenerate comedy from Norm Macdonald and Bob Saget should need little introduction. Mitch (Norm Macdonald) and best friend Sam (Artie Lange) set up a ‘revenge-for-hire’ business in search of some quick cash. Smattered with cameos from SNL buddies and American comedy greats, DIRTY WORK is a cult classic full of Norm’s perfectly delivered low-brow genius.” (Jellied Reels)
