We’re excited to announce the Sidewalk Cinema’s first ever late night movie series, Midnight Madness! We’ll have a different culty, fun film on the screen at midnight one weekend night a month.

When I was in high school, every Saturday night the little cinema by Century Plaza Mall had a longstanding midnight screening of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. This allowed my curfew to be 2:30am on Saturday nights! The screenings were always over-the-top fun and somehow felt special every time. It was pretty much the best thing ever. When I lived in New York, Two Boots Theatre (and pizza) for years had a standing Friday midnight screening of DONNIE DARKO. There were at least a half dozen die-hard Darko fans (and assumed cinema completists) who attended every single Friday night – it was always a memorable trip to the cinema and truly the best kind of otherworldly. The series was iconic and when Two Boots closed, they ended on a Friday midnight DONNIE DARKO screening. We’re hoping to capture even a little bit of the old school Birmingham, Two Boots midnight movie magic.
