This Movie Sucks 

Wednesday, Jan 11 2006
The reviews came as if through a bullhorn: The San Francisco Chronicle called it the worst of the decade, the Wall Street Journal called it the worst of the century, and the New York Times announced it had the "lamest dialogue ever committed to film" (although Roger Ebert countered that "some scenes ... are really very good," which is nicely contrarian). I'm talking about Gigli, and needless to say I haven't seen the fucking thing. But now you can watch the spectacle that changed the fortunes of two very special celebrities in a tiny temple devoted (at least every Sunday) to the bad. The Dark Room Theater's "Bad Movie Night" features a cinematic mistake, funny hosts, free popcorn, and carte blanche to yell at the screen. Mike Spiegelman and Sherilyn Connelly usher in Bennifer's perfect storm.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
