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.

Hunted by mysterious forces, a young woman who has supernatural abilities must go on the run when her powers are discovered. With nowhere to go, she flees back to her family she abandoned long ago. She begins to mend the broken relationships with her mother and daughter and learns that the power she needed was inside her all along.

Join us for a pre-film appearance from Chuck Brown, writer of The Punisher and Black Panther comics for Marvel and Chad Bowers, writer of Marvel comics, including X-Men '92. Bowers is also co-creator of Down Set Fight, a comic set right here in Columbia. Both writers will be signing and selling their work before the film!

Each patron will entered in to a raffle for a copy of the first volume of Chuck Brown's, Bitter Root, which is currently on track to be made into a feature length film from producer Ryan Coogler.

Bitter Root
In the 1920s, the Harlem Renaissance is in full swing, and only the Sangerye Family can save New York-and the world-from the supernatural forces threatening to destroy humanity. But the once-great family of monster hunters has been torn apart by tragedies and conflicting moral codes. The Sangerye Family must heal the wounds of the past and move beyond their differences… or sit back and watch a force of unimaginable evil ravage the human race. David F. Walker and Sandford Greene, the creative team of Power Man and Iron Fist, along with indie veteran Chuck Brown (Trench Coats, Cigarettes and Shotguns) bring you 24 action-packed pages of monsters, mayhem, and family dysfunction in a brand-new ongoing series.
