“Killer Klowns…” first opened in 1988, and featured Grant Cramer, Suzanne Snyder, John Allen Nelson, and the iconic John Vernon (Dean Wormer from “Animal House”). The plot is your basic evil aliens who look like circus clowns, invading a small town to use humans as food. The film has gained “klassic kult” status, often used as an example of a pure cult movie. The Cinepocalypse screening will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary, and will round out the week long festival.

The 2018 CINEPOCALYPSE Film Festival presents its Closing Night Film, “Killer Klowns from Outer Space,” on Thursday, June 28th (8:30pm) at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 North Southport, Chicago. For more information on the fest, click here. senior staff writer Patrick McDonald

  • Little Women: The Musical

    CHICAGO – The story of “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott, has been an American institution since its publication in 1869. The story of four girls-to-little-women during the American Civil War, with their indomitable mother holding down the household while their father is away in the war, was a perfect candidate to become a Broadway musical. The Brown Paper Box Co. (BPBCo) is currently presenting a brilliant adaptation of that musical for the storefront stage, and its emotion, music craft and energy is nothing sort of a triumph… this small theater company that could does it again. The show has various evening/matinee performances at the The Strawdog Theatre in Chicago through February 9th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
