In the long-standing tradition of the midnight movie, the Michigan Theater is presenting the "Summer Classics After Dark" series, a 10 pm run of late-night cult classic screenings. On Thursday, July 11, the film will be a creature feature of the existential variety: David Lynch's Eraserhead. The director's first film, Eraserhead chronicles the hallucinogenic nightmares of Henry Spencer, a man who lives in industrial squalor. Spencer is forced to care for a needy, swaddled mutant which may, or may not, be his child. It's a horror story about birth, and the birth of Eraserhead was painful indeed—Lynch spent five years making this spooky, mind-expanding cult classic.
$8, $6.50 members. 10pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michigantheater.org—JS
