About The Event

In this fictional documentary, U.S. prisons are at capacity, and President Nixon declares a state

of emergency. All new prisoners, most of whom are connected to the antiwar movement, are

now given the choice of jail time or spending three days in Punishment Park, where they will be

hunted for sport by federal authorities. The prisoners invariably choose the latter option, but

learn that, between the desert heat and the brutal police officers, their chances of survival are

slim. Come see the film Rolling Stone called “one of the finest films about dissent in America.”

Doors at 7pm, the show will start at 7:30pm. Arrive early to grab popcorn and drinks, catch the

pre-show, and share recommendations with everyone.
