I’m going to take a wild guess and say that when you think about Nashville schools you probably don’t think about the Nashville Film Institute. It doesn’t have a huge campus in the middle of the city and there aren’t a ton of commercials for it on TV, but trust me, it’s there.
It might not be more than a blip on your RADAR, but tonight you might get a little more familiar with NFI. I say this because tonight they’re hosting a free double feature of two big cult hits.
The first of the films is David Lynch’s classic and iconic film “Eraserhead.” The only thing I know about this movie is that the dude’s hair in the poster is awesome, and that the movie is supposed to be REALLY messed up. I don’t mean a little, I mean disturbing on epic proportions.
The other movie is Ed Wood’s “Plan 9 From Outer space,” which I’ve heard is just completely terrible in a hilarious way. One reviewer on IMDB says “this movie maybe be awful, but it’s the best!” which is our favorite kind of film here at N4F.
It sounds like a pretty solid double feature. I hope you’re ready for some weird shit going down if you choose to go, because it will go down. It will.
This event starts today, Saturday June 26th at 4pm. It takes place at The Factory at Franklin. Seating is limited so show up early. Also, anyone younger than 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
