Second Monthly Meeting of the Arkham Film Society!

Wednesday June 27th

7:30 doors – 8:00 movie

$5.00 admission

95 Empire Black Box at

95 Empire Street, Providence

At our June meeting the Arkham Film Society brings you THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD, better known as TURKISH STAR WARS, and we have luckily found a copy with English subtitles so we’ll all know what’s going on.  TURKISH STAR WARS is not a Star Wars clone as its nickname would suggest, but rather liberally lifts large amounts of footage from the classic film (along with soundtracks from other films.) For more info check out this fan made trailer, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOjSSTbhCIk&feature=related .

We at the Arkham Film Society hope to use these monthly meetings to expose our audience to a mix of obscure forgotten films along with some new independent features. Please let us know what you thing of our programming by leaving suggestions and comments at our Facebook group, www.facebook.com/groups/arkhamscreenings .

This screening is being brought to you with the help of Malachi’s CafĂ© and Analog Underground Records. As an added bonus for all of you vinyl soundtrack and world music collectors out there Analog Underground will have a table at this screening to sell soundtracks and Turkish music records, so get there early. Please check out these local businesses, www.facebook.com/malachisri and www.facebook.com/pages/Analog-Underground .
