Field Trips of Terror: CUFF takes back the night

CALGARY – “Why should kids have all the fun this summer?” So says The Calgary Underground Film Festival announcing their third installment of Field Trips of Terror. With two genre-film classics and two out of the box locales, CUFF turns the typical movie-going experience into a different joy ride. 

Kicking things off with an outdoor screening making the most of summer, action favourite Lethal Weapon 2 will screen at the Sunnyside containeR Park. Immediately recognizable with its vividly painted repurposed shipping containers, contaiR’s inner-city oasis (adjacent to the Sunnyside c-train station) is an optimal back-drop for this 1989 buddy-cop action comedy spectacle. 

If a mix of sci-fi and horror are more up your alley (with a few video games thrown in for good measure), then CUFF has you covered with the 1994 cult classic, Brainscan. Fittingly, this  far-out flick of games gone wrong will screen at none other than Calgary’s own video game mecca, The Rec Room; and while both Field Trip screenings are by donation, for $20 CUFF and Bass Buss will transport you round-trip from the Sunnyside c-train station to The Rec Room, and also throw in $10 of play.  

 

Lethal Weapon screens at containR Sunnyside on August 23 at 9 pm. Brainscan screens at The Rec Room on August 30 at 8 pm. For tickets and more information, visit www.calgaryundergroundfilm.org
