Things are really f*cked up right now. And here on Clinton Corner, we're doing our bit to make things better.

Every Monday night, come to the Clinton Street Theater, enjoy a film on the big screen (the way it should be seen!), make friends, have a few laughs, scream, cry and raise money for a good cause.

Clinton Street Resistance Presents: THIS IS SPINAL TAP



35th Anniversary!!!

For all its japes and jokes, the movie is really about exhaustion of the spirit: sitting in a bleak hotel suite at 4 a.m. with the bad taste of last night in the mouth and the feeling that tomorrow will not be a better day.

ArtistsRepLogoTonight's nonprofit partner is Artists Repertory Theatre, whose mission is to produce intimate, provocative theatre and provide a home for artists and audiences to take creative risks. 

Artists Repertory Theatre develops and produces new work that vividly express its aesthetic values. With a focus on work by writers of color, women, trans-, and gender nonconforming writers, Artists Repertory Theatre offers an environment where these playwrights can create provocative, intimate new theatre pieces that challenge, illuminate, and inspire. When barriers to play-making are broken down, voices that often go unheard on the American stage have the opportunity to shift the cultural conversation and educate audiences.

In 1982 legendary British heavy metal band Spinal Tap attempt an American comeback tour accompanied by a fan who is also a film-maker. The resulting documentary, interspersed with powerful performances of Tap's pivotal music and profound lyrics, candidly follows a rock group heading towards crisis, culminating in the infamous affair of the eighteen-inch-high Stonehenge stage prop.
