It begins with a man squealing like a pig and ends with a transvestite eating something less than, uh, divine. In between, there are plenty of offers that moviegoers can't refuse.
It's Spirit of '72, a celebration of some of the most noteworthy releases from the same year that The Light Factory was born. The venue has selected a total of eight feature films from 1972; some are Oscar winners, some are box office smashes, and yet others managed to push — make that shred — that proverbial envelope.
The series runs this Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 20-23, at The Light Factory. Admission is $7 per film ($5 for TLF members). The full schedule with days and times is below.
