Let's Flix & Chill - Tuesday, July 25th @ 7pm
We’ve all been there. It’s a Tuesday night, the weeks just starting , and all you want is for someone to play a movie about a woman becoming a wasp while people pretend to be the contributors of the film. All you want to do is come home after a long day’s work, sit down, put your feet up on the steering wheel and drive to cinema center to see Le'ts Flix and Chill.
Let’s Flix and Chill is a free series in which Let’s Comedy has fun with the audience over a cult film. This will be the very first one and what a doozy it is. We’ll be watching Roger Corman’s 1959 classic Wasp Woman. A film about a woman who’s body is changing. Fun Film Fact: It was Previously titled “Are you there God, its me Wasp Woman”
We’ll be Featuring performers who will act as the director, actress, and screen writer for The Wasp Woman. These “contributors” will be there to give commentary, field questions from the audience, and generally try and defend why they made such cinematic trash.
We’ve partnered with our friends at Cinema Center to bring you this show. Together we hope it will encourage a community to connect on cinema and comedy. There will also be beer.

NSFW is the stuff you weren’t supposed to watch as a kid. It’s the stuff you heard someone describe and it sounded so absurd it couldn’t possibly be real. It’s the place where you can see Rowdy Roddy Piper one night and Jack Nicholson the next. Where people in the high-brow got their start in the low-brow. It’s Black & White, Smell-o-Vision, Red, Green, or Purple Tinted, and Technicolor. From Italy, Korea, the UK, North America, Japan. Dubbed, Subtitled, or Barely Audible. This is the Summit City’s showcase of thrillers, horror-shows, comedies, sci-fi head trips, the overshadowed flicks from burgeoning film titans, and the triumphs of the auteurs of sleaze. Welcome to, “Not Safe Fort Wayne”, bringing new and old cult classics to the three rivers!
In an effort to make our programming accessible to all audiences, Cinema Center is excited and proud to launch Subtitled Sundays! On the third Sunday of every month, Cinema Center will screen one of our regularly scheduled, full-run films with the captioning enabled. Not only will this benefit the deaf and hard of hearing, but it will help anyone who sometimes has a little trouble discerning dialogue when multiple characters speak, or who miss what is said in very quiet moments.
