A new semi-monthly series of programs devoted to various classic movies from Hollywood, Europe and the rest of the world. Cult films have the ability to touch their intended following, influencing anyone even remotely interested in film production. It's these so-called "fringe" or over-the-top movies that Greenwich Library Cult Films, through our extensive catalog, intends to expose to a much wider and appreciative audience.
Librarian and film buff Ed Morrissey will lead a pre- and post-screening discussion.

Aimless young punk Otto (Emilio Estervez) gets hired by Bud (Harry Dean Stanton) to repossess cars that owners failed to make payments on. Then one day Otto, other 'repo men' and government agents all race to find a certain Chevy Malibu which may or may not have dead aliens from outer space in the trunk... Wild, almost surreal comedy-thriller by writer-director Alex Cox that never lags in it's pacing. Rated R for violence and language. Color. 92 minutes.
