A harrowing but meticulously observed look at teenage lives in the era prior to the lives in the early 1990’s, “Super Dark Times” marks the feature debut of gifted director Kevin Phillips, whose critically acclaimed 2015 short film “Too Cool For School” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Zach (Owen Campbell) and Josh (Charlie Tahan) are best friends growing up in a leafy Upstate New York suburb in the 1990s, where teenage life revolves around hanging out, looking for kicks, navigating first love and vying for popularity.

When a traumatic incident drives a wedge between the previously inseparable pair, their youthful innocence abruptly vanishes. Each young man processes the tragedy in his own way, until circumstances grow increasingly complex and spiral into violence. Phillips dives headlong into the confusion of teenage life, creating an evocative atmosphere out of the murky boundaries between adolescence and adulthood, courage and fear, and good and evil.

“This generations MEAN CREEK or DONNIE DARKO…”
– Brad Miska, “Bloody Disgusting”

The fist entry in The Hippodrome Cinema’s animated kid’s film series!

Years ago, there was a place called “The Land of Point,” because everything in “The Land of Point” had one – a point, that is – the barns, the houses, the cars, everything, even the people. Everyone in “The Land of Point” had a point at the top of their head. Everyone, that is, except Oblio, who was born round-headed. Since he had no point, Oblio, along with his trusty dog, Arrow, were banished to the “Pointless Forest.”

Join them to see what wonders await these two intrepid travelers as they make their way on their amazing, song-filled journey of discovery! Written and produced as a companion piece to his 1971 album of the same name, Harry Nilsson’s “The Point” is a slightly Seussian, slightly psychedelic fable.
