“‘The Fly‘ is as much a romantic tragedy as a black-humored horror film, but it unfolds with such eerie grandeur that it will leave you stoked with a creepy high for hours after you’ve left the theater.” – LA Times
David Cronenberg’s “horror masterpiece” – Den of Geek
Cronenberg. Jeff Goldblum. Mystery drinks. We like to think of this as the perfect Saturday night trifecta. (You’re welcome.)
Come enjoy our screening of David Cronenberg’s 1986 remake of “The Fly,” with a mystery cocktail presented to you in tandem with a certain scene in the film. (Guess away, but we’re not spilling. No pun intended.)
When scientist Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) completes his teleportation device, he decides to test its abilities on himself. Unbeknownst to him, a housefly slips in during the process, leading to a merger of man and insect. Initially, Brundle appears to have undergone a successful teleportation, but the fly’s cells begin to take over his body. As he becomes increasingly fly-like, Brundle’s girlfriend (Geena Davis) is horrified as the person she once loved deteriorates into a monster.
Dir. David Cronenberg. 1986. 96 mins.
