Apologies once again for the inconsistency of this section over the past few weeks. Life has been almost exclusively throwing sliders in the dirt of late, which—when combined with non-metal endeavors like Northside Festival—have conspired to keep your weekly updates semi-weekly. Here’s hoping we can get back in our d-beat groove…
Since the last “Top 5 shows of the weekend”, we’ve crossed the first official day of summer, I’ve somehow managed to survive another full orbit of the sun, and best of all, finally made it out to Hometown BBQ. It hasn’t all been good though, just to add to the rotten run of form 2016 has been on, The Acheron is also closing down soon. Finally, by the time this goes out, you’ll only have a couple more days to make a final purchase at Other Music before it closes on the 25th, so do make some time for that in between catching some great shows.
Nitehawk opened its doors 5 years ago on June 24th and is celebrating all this week with some of their favorite flicks and $5 beers. To top it off, on Friday they are going all out with free tots! Nitehawk – we love you. Cheers to many more.
Since Nitehawk Cinema opened on June 24, 2011, and overturned the prohibition law banning alcohol in theaters, we’ve been committed to presenting the very best, original programming combining three things we love the most: movies, food, and drinks.
June 22: The Deuce screening of Street Trash. Nitehawk first screened Street Trash in April 2012. THE DEUCE debuted at Nitehawk in September 2013 with a screening of Vice Squad.
June 23: Kevin Geeks Out about Death. Kevin first Geeked Out at Nitehawk in October 2014 with zombies.
June 24 & 25: Midnite screenings of Drive. Drive was one of the first movies that Nitehawk played and we played it for a loooong time. You loved it, we loved it and so we’ve chosen it to be a part of our five year celebration! Also, the drink special for this movie, called The Driver, has never left our menu since 2012.
June 25 & 26: Brunch screenings of The Breakfast Club. Nitehawk kicked off our repertory brunch screenings with The Breakfast Club in January 2012. The brunch lives on in the form of our regular brunch series prix fixe: “The Breakfast Club” ($15) one entree plus mimosa or Bloody Mary.
June 28: Film Feast – Dazed and Confused. Nitehawk’s FILM FEASTS was first served in October 2012 with a screening of Apocalypse Now with Sixpoint Brewery and is the ultimate example of what Nitehawk does best. Dazed and Confused marks the fourth time we’ve collaborated with Lagunitas Brewing Company.
See you there!

We return to our regular schedule after last weekend’s Northside Festival. Happy weekend everybody! It’s a truly wonderful day… and that’s probably only because England just beat Wales in the European Championships… as a result, this entry will be brief, but it’s all about the quality of the acts anyway!
