The Day of the Beast

Saturday, September 23

"If Mel Brooks had directed The Omen, it may have come out like this." —Film Threat

"It's de la Iglesia's wicked sense of humor that proves to be the picture's greatest strength." —Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

4K restoration from the original negative, supervised by the director himself!

In between his debut Acción Mutante and his proudly depraved Perdita Durango, writer/director Álex de la Iglesia (HBO’s 30 Coins) delivered a “classic of modern Spanish cinema” (Screen Anarchy), winning six Goya Awards including Best Director.

When a rogue priest (Pan’s Labyrinth’s Álex Angulo) discovers the exact date The Antichrist will be born, he enlists a Death Metal record store clerk and a cheesy TV psychic for an urban spree of “gore, sacrilege and twisted humor” (San Francisco Examiner) to prevent the Apocalypse by summoning Satan himself.

After Hours is the best films you never saw on the big screen (or maybe you did) from late-night cult classics to foreign favorites and even summer blockbusters on weekends. Please note that unclaimed pre-ordered tickets will be sold to the rush line 30 mins after showtime.
