Start celebrating the 2016 election cycle with a special screening of this hilarious romp through a skewed vision of America in 500 years. The film centers on the experiences of Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", who is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Joe awakens from the experiment not in one year, but 500, to find that he's easily the most intelligent person alive. Concessions and cash bar available courtesy of Mom and POPcorn and Square Burger. 8 p.m. Tickets are $8 general admission.
