Has any modern-ish movie been more misunderstood than Starship Troopers? Decried by critics as a dirt-dumb glorification of fascism and jingoism upon its 1997 release, the film has since been celebrated as a satire of fascism and jingoism. (Who would have thought that the director of RoboCop and Showgirls, Paul Verhoeven, would make a satire?) Wanna see this big-bug satire on the big screen? You can on Wednesday, June 21, when we’ll screen a 4K restoration of Starship Troopers at the Avalon Atmospheric Theater! Reserved-seating tickets for the 7 p.m. film are $11, and are on sale NOW.

What else can you expect from Starship Troopers? As the Avalon says: “Giant bugs, space flights, awesome machine guns, Neil Patrick Harris, and co-ed showers.” ENOUGH SAID. Oh, and our screening will be sponsored by our friends at Lakefront Brewery and Gruber Law Offices. Thanks, Avalon, Lakefront, and Gruber!

Young people from all over the globe are joining up to fight for the future. Do your part, and get your tickets NOW.
