Piranha | July 21 | Orbit Room | 10PM
Tickets for the 7:30PM screening of PIRANHA(1978)
Thursday, July 21th
at The Orbit Room
Coming to The Orbit Room, safe from the shores of Lake Monroe where little beasties like these may lurk in wait, Cicada Cinema is proud to present…PIRANHA!
Half a JAWS spoof and half trash-gore fishploitation powerhouse, PIRANHA holds the key to a most bitchin' summer. When some jerkfaces skinny-dip near a government testing lab, they accidentally unleash…PIRANHA!! The bloodthirsty mutoids rend flesh in a small-town lake while a drunk-ass scientist, a go-getting detective and exploitation superstars Dick Miller, Paul Bartel, and Barbara Steele hang out and take care of business.
From GREMLINS to INNERSPACE, from THE ‘BURBS to SMALL SOLDIERS, director Joe Dante is a master of transforming genre pastiche into peerless entertainment. His love of Fifties sci-fi/horror and playful mayhem make PIRANHA a rare delight -- a knockoff just as fun as the original, with fledgling SFX guru Rob Bottin's puppet fish a wonder to behold.
We hope to see you at this installment of Beaches! Blood!! Babes!!!: A Cicada Underground film series, a whole summer thrills and chills which will delight!
