Cult Classic/B- Movie Drunk Fest

When: Sun., March 14, 9 p.m. 2010

Produced on a six-figure budget, the 1983 flick Liquid Sky follows a bisexual, cocaine-addicted fashion model and her male doppelganger (both played by Anne Carlisle) on the night of a UFO landing in Manhattan. It's chock-full of synthetic, lo-fi new-wave music, lecherous old women (who predate the term "cougar" by two decades), odd seduction scenes, and overdone makeup. An instant midnight-movie classic, the film goes well beyond "so-bad-it's-good." In fact, it garnered several international awards and has shown remarkable staying power. Liquid Sky screens this at this Sunday's B-Movie Drunk Fest, a fund-raiser featuring popcorn, hot dogs, drink specials, theme-oriented makeup, sassy hecklers, and a new-wave dance party to follow. The fun starts at 9 p.m. at White Horse Inn (6551 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). Free. Drink proceeds will go toward painting the walls in the dancefloor room.
