Unibrow Art House: Cold Iron Is A Titanic Comedy

Sunday July 30 @ 7pm
From director Wesley Rickert: "Welcome to the headlights of an absurdist kabuki opera film narrative! A tin-foil road-trip to Florida & the British Museum, in faster Chinese that dialogues over the electric kettle of Toronto's City Hall and rotates in perpetual stillness towards a tsunami of row-boat performances by Canadian artists!"

Wednesday August 6 @ 7pm
19+ licensed screening: drink along with the lads! London. The 1960s.

When Withnail’s Uncle Monty offers his stone cottage north to Penrith, they escape the squalor of their flat for a week in the country. They soon realize they’ve gone on holiday by mistake when their wits—and friendship—are sorely tested by violent downpours, less than hospitable locals, and empty cupboards.
