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

Have We Met?—The Dialogue Between Past and Present

Moore Takes Aim at Both Parties in Fahrenheit 11/9

Flint’s story is essential to the film because it illustrates the power of greed and why corporate money has no place in government. Macroeconomics 101 tells us that corporations are beholden to one thing—their stockholders. Humans do not enter into this equation. How can you have a democracy for the people when corporate money runs the government? You can’t.
