A Reel Education is pleased to return to The Trylon Microcinema on December 21st! This time, we will be presenting David Bowie content, by way of a screening of the very weird POW camp drama, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence!
The Trylon microcinema is a wonderful, intimate non-profit theater in South Minneapolis, whose focus is on rare, classic, and unusual films. They also serve organic popcorn with real butter, so you know these folks are serious about the film experience.
Tickets are $8. (Five-show Trylon discount cards are also available for $25!)
Join us! And spread the word!
