Ten Tigers Parlour, 3813 Georgia Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001

A celebration of 80's B movie classics and home video club culture.

Blending elements from 50's creature features , 60's zombie horror, and an 80's teen movie, Night of the Creeps follows geeky pals Chris Romero and J.C. Hooper as they pledge to a college fraternity in the hopes that it will lead to better luck with the girls on campus. Tasked with breaking into the college medical center as part of their initiation, the two unwittingly release a horror that has laid dormant for almost 30 years. Things go from bad to worse when the menace spreads to the sorority house where Chris's love interest Cynthia Cronenberg and her sisters prepare for the big formal dance. What follows is an inspired cult favorite full of in-jokes, chain smoking detectives, B movie star cameos, and gross special effects.

Arrive early to enjoy food and cocktails in the upstairs lounge. Videos will play before and after the film with live synthwave soundtrack by Jonathan and Eric.
