BAT CITY CINEMA & AGFA PRESENT - A GORE-MET FEAST: THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS + THE CORPSE GRINDERS Whether you run a struggling funeral parlor or a family-owned cat food company, being a small business owner can be murder. Dismemberment, eye gouging, shiv-wielding motor-psychos, acid vats, and grave robbing are all creative ways to stay competitive. But if you’re not careful, you could become a snack for a horde of cats with a taste for human flesh! Bat City presents a pair of never-screened schlock classics on 16mm from deep within the dungeons of the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA). THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS (1966 / 68 min) - An undertaker and his two restaurateur pals take to the streets at night on their motorcycles, armed with knives and chains, to drum up business for his two-bit funeral parlor. THE CORPSE GRINDERS (1971 / 72 min) - The Lotus Cat Food Company has fallen on hard times, and the owners have turned to the local cemetery as a cheap source of meat. How could they know the new recipe would leave the local cat population howling with insatiable bloodlust? --- Since 2016, Bat City Cinema has been preaching the gospel of 16mm film on screens across Austin. A mystical showcase of classic and forgotten horror, sci-fi, exploitation, scare films, TV rarities, weird educationals, and other ephemera on film. From family-friendly fare to screenings hosted by mad magicians and Satan himself, there’s something for everyone at the “ghoulest show in town”!

'Molli and Max In The Future' is a Sci-Fi Romantic Comedy about a man and woman whose orbits repeatedly collide over the course of 12 years, 4 planets, 3 dimensions and one space-cult. A grounded romantic comedy set in an absurd world, "Molli and Max" takes the character-driven romance of a movie like "When Harry Met Sally" and combines it with an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink Sci-Fi universe of something like "Futurama". Through a combination of old-school practical visual effects (hand-built models, miniatures, puppets and rear-projection) and cutting edge technology (Unreal Engine and LED Volumes) the filmmakers have created a universe like no other. Tentacles! Robots! Glorp!

Four college girls hold up a restaurant in order to fund their spring break vacation. While partying, drinking, and taking drugs, they are arrested, only to be bailed out by a drug and arms dealer. "Good for Her" presents Spring Breakers: a day-glo, hyperstylized fever dream from Harmony Korine, the world’s oldest teenager (insult) starring not one, not two, but THREE Teen Choice Award winners going absolutely apesh*t. Shot in a voyeuristic style that makes the audience feel like a creep for watching but also makes it hard to look away, the movie glamorizes/demonizes the great American tradition of sending children to tropical locations to blow off steam via anonymous sex and copious amounts of alcohol. You’ll leave wishing James Franco never did anything other than Riff Raff cosplay because it’s perfection. Come prepared to have a hangover tomorrow! Hosted by Cindy Popp.
USSR-China border, 1973: Young soldier Rafael is on guard duty when the border falls under attack from flying Chinese kung fu warriors, leaving him as the sole survivor. Utterly fascinated by the long-haired martial artists who easily dispatched his fellow guards, all while blasting forbidden Black Sabbath music from their portable radio, Rafael is struck by a revelation: he too wants to become a kung fu warrior. Looking for mentorship but with limited options, faith leads Rafael to seek martial arts teachers at one of the unlikeliest places: the local Eastern Orthodox monastery, where the black-clad monks begin his training. With a skeptical mother, a rival monk, and a budding love interest pulling him in different directions, Rafael finds that his journey to unlock the greatest martial art of all – the almighty power of humility — is long, winding, and full of kick-ass adventures.
