Shout at the movies! We screen the worst films you’ve never seen, and invite YOU to roast them — the best one-liners of the night will win prizes. If you like MST3K and RiffTrax, this is your scene!

Your hosts for the evening, JOHN MATHOT (Disney’s Star Vs. the Forces of Evil), and SUSAN WRIGHT (The Because Show podcast) will present 1984’s lady actioner PANTHER SQUAD. 80s bad ass Sybil Danning stars as the head of an elite female fighting force tasked with rescuing a kidnapped astronaut from a radical environmental group (radical because they want to prevent pollution in outer-freakin’-space). This one is all kinds of weird.

Blessings and Light! Some Souls Church invites all sinners (even minorities and women) to get the pews sticky at Church Night, the church service that services you!

This sell-out production from Washington, DC is a variety show of biblical proportions featuring a blend of sketch, stand-up, music and improv. Church Night “conveniently straddles the line between satire and sacrilege…every show is meticulously planned, beautifully written, and irresistibly funny,” (Brightest Young Things).

Church Night has opened for Tim Heidecker, Eugene Mirman, Brett Gelman, and more. They’ve featured at The Bentzen Ball (curated by Tig Notaro) and Edinburgh Festival Fringe where they received a 4 star review from the UK’s Broadway Baby, who said Church Night “confidently balances the delicate line of parody between relevant commentary and irrelevant mockery.” AMEN TO THAT!

The staff at Church Night can’t wait to come together, at the same time, in the name of the Lord, with the fine people of Los Angeles.
