Adult Summer Camp! Film Series: Flash Gordon says
This summer, we cool off in the Setzer Foundation Auditorium and celebrate the art of camp, with films that are exuberant, playful, dramatized, and hilarious (though not always intentionally). Arrive early to enjoy campy cocktails in the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club, then head into the auditorium (sorry, no food or drinks allowed) for an evening of film and fun. Each presentation will begin with an illuminating introduction by local film lover and historian Jacob Greenberg and a campy short film showcasing some of the best (and weirdest) of underground cinema.

The featured film for September is "Flash Gordon". Earth is under attack, and football star Flash Gordon may be our only hope! Based on a comic book of the same name, "Flash Gordon" features an original soundtrack by Queen, and lots of colorful, campy fun. Nominated for several Saturn awards, including best science fiction film, as well as the first ever Golden Raspberry award for worst actor, "Flash Gordon" has developed a cult following and has gone on to influence artists and filmmakers alike. The short film "The Heart of the World" (Guy Maddin, 2000) will open the evening.
