The Back-To-School season is celebrated in a variety of ways: Parents get trashed off boxed wine after a hellish summer of rugrats knocking around the house. Kids pose and preen endlessly in front of their mirror after suckering said parents out of hundreds of dollars in ridiculous fashions that have a shelf-live about half as long as their attention spans. And while stores are advertising sales on Pee-Chees and Pencil Boxes, and Teachers are fitting themselves for hockey pads, we here at cortandfatboy.com are celebrating Back-To-School by championing one of the worst influences of the 80’s as he plays the best game of hooky ever witnessed.
The Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne) is the spot. Admission is $3.00, doors open at 10pm. The film starts at 11pm after a short trailer reel cobbled together from DVD’s, old 80’s TV ads, and various internet detritus deemed humorous enough.
