Has it really been 10 years since the debut of UNESSENTIAL CINEMA? How’d that happen? UNESSENTIAL CINEMA is a regular series dedicated to unleashing the most undocumented, unseen, and unknown films and videos in our vast and confusing collection. Over the past decade we have presented more head-scratching, brain-breaking reels then we can even remember. Each program has featured an overarching theme or particular gimmick, and every show has left us wondering: Why do we have this stuff? Tonight we reflect on a decade of archival discoveries by bringing together some of our all-time favorite finds for a one-time only ‘experience.’ Be prepared to celebrate with double projections, live commentary, audience participation and, quite possibly, cake.

Expect some of these classics:
DISSECTION OF A RAT
HEAD/TAIL
IN THE PANTS OF THE UNIVERSE
FOUR ROSES (Whiskey)
THE ACT OF PUKING WITH ONE’S OWN MOUTH
and many more…
