WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE

OPENING OCTOBER 13th

WASTED! THE STORY OF FOOD WASTE aims to change the way people buy, cook, recycle, and eat food. Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura, and Danny Bowien, audiences will see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps into incredible dishes that create a more secure food system. WASTED! exposes the criminality of food waste and how it’s directly contributing to climate change and shows us how each of us can make small changes — all of them delicious — to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.

AGFA PRESENTS: SOCIETY/RE-ANIMATOR/THE CRAZIES

In conjunction with the American Genre Film Archives the Hippodrome Cinema is proud to present three films from their collection this october:

REANIMATOR
OCTOBER 20 & 25
Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is a new Miskatonic University student who also moonlights as a mad scientist, intent on perfecting a serum that “re-animates” corpses

SOCIETY
OCTOBER 21
SOCIETY encapsulates all that made the ‘80s a halcyon age for horror; bursting with truly bizarre ideas, the film is a cavalcade of winking satire and social commentary, and culminates in an epically grotesque twenty-minute finale

THE CRAZIES
OCTOBER 26
Though not an official part of Romero’s ongoing DEAD series, THE CRAZIES still fits in just fine thanks to its depictions of normalcy shedding apart from the inside and a ruthless but incompetent military ultimately driven by self-interest

I LOVE YOU, DADDY

OPENING DECEMBER 1

And the less you know going in, the better.
