A very merry spooky October superfriends! The Fifth Reel is back and madder than a heart attack. We’re excited to kick off our Fall/Winter lineup on Oct 20 with a BRUCE CAMPBELL double feature!


“A discount-store employee ("Name's Ash. Housewares.") is time-warped to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised savior who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil. Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome, and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash's 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness”. – IMDB

Shortly after AOD we’ll be playing Bruce Campbell’s directorial debut MAN WITH THE SCREAMING BRAIN

“Man with the Screaming Brain is a story of greed, betrayal and revenge in a small Bulgarian town. William Cole, wealthy industrialist, winds up with part of his brain replaced by that of a Russian cab driver Yegor. The two couldn't be more different, but they share one thing - both were killed by the same woman. Brought back to life by a mad scientist, William and Yegor form an unlikely partnership to track down their common nemesis.” – IMDB

Preshow for the evening will feature the spooky punk stylings of THE DETRACTIONS

Hosting for the evening will be the always hilarious, never a dull moment The Kinkonauts! Prepare to be dazzled by their hilarious antics and mind bending challenges. Past highlights include human-proton-pack ghost hunting, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation contests, and life sized rock em sock em robots. One can only guess what they have up their sleeve this time.

Band plays at 9:00
Movie starts around 9:30

The Globe Cinema is located at 617 8 Ave S.W. Debit and Credit are accepted at our Box Office, but the bar and concession are CASH ONLY (There is an ATM available on the main floor). The Fifth Reel bar is located upstairs, where you will find our menu of alcoholic beverages. Popcorn etc. is located at the concession stand downstairs.

Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quoting- a- long are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...

That said; racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic language/behavior will NOT BE TOLERATED. We want people of all genders, creeds, cultures, and sexualities to feel welcome at our shows.

Kindly note: The Fifth Reel screenings are special event screenings. As such, Globe passes, gift certificates, Friends of CJSW discounts, and Groupons will not be accepted
