SECCA and a/perture cinema present a new cult film series guaranteed to delight, frighten, and fascinate – come tremble and glee at the odd pleasures of SCREEN ODDITIES.

Curated by Alex Brown, Alex Muller, and Gray Gordon, this series will offer a new cult selection every month to sink your very strange teeth into and enjoy.

By nature, cult films are hard to define. Some are obscure and seldom see the light of day (the inexplicable Tammy and the T-Rex), while others have become permanent pop-culture icons and beloved mainstream favorites (we're looking at you Mean Girls). This is what we'll be exploring in SCREEN ODDITIES.

Come get weird and celebrate the bizarre, whacky, and wonderful realm of cult films.
