Nick After Hours
Cinema has the power to create strange new worlds. So when we say we’re interested in showing “weird movies” in our new After Hours series, we mean something potentially earth-shattering. After Hours takes the broad categories of “cult film” and “genre film” and aims to create a transformative theatrical experience, casting the familiar in the glow of the uncanny. This is cinema as spectacle, cinema as politics, and cinema as magic; a kind of magic only possible with the unexamined brought to light.

Friday After Next
It's Christmastime in the 'hood, and cousins Craig and Day-Day have finally left their parents' homes and moved into their own apartment. But a ghetto grinch breaks into their crib and steals all their presents--and the rent money hidden in their stereo speakers! Craig and Day-Day's only hope of avoiding eviction before Christmas is to take jobs as unarmed security guards at a local strip mall, where they learn some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holiday season.
Starring Ice Cube, Mike Epps, and John Witherspoon.
