Today at The Clinton: Saturday, May 28

7:00pm Teen Witch

Black Sabbath

 

Celebrate Pagan May at the Clinton Street Theater! Our theme this month relishes in the long tradition of film using rustic iconography outside the traditional Abrahamic religions for entertainment purposes, often to shock audiences with a hidden look at traditions outside the norm to stoke fears of female sexual empowerment. Ranging from classic comedy to campy exploitation and plenty of experimentalism in between, our slate of May titles is for anyone who enjoys seeing how witchcraft, nature worship, and hellish dedications have been portrayed on the silver screen. Come let this series cast a spell on you.

A trio of atmospheric horror tales directed by Mario Bava and introduced by Boris Karloff!
