Showtimes

straight to hell returns

To avoid confusion, this film is the director's cut version of the original Straight to Hell (1987). According to Alex Cox on his website, after he saw the Redux version of Apocalypse Now (1979), Alex wanted to make a new version of STH using digital techniques that he couldn't use at the time (like the color change, digital blood, etc). He worked with Collateral Imagine who did the effects of Cox's Repo Chick (2009) to do the digital effects. The film is also six minutes longer, which Cox regretfully admits to cutting at the time of release.

ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE.

DOORS AT 9PM.
