Fasten your garter belt and come up to the lab and see what’s on the slab as the independent, non-profit Gateway Film Center brings six cult classics to the big screen as part of October’s Halloween-themed Cult 101 series.

A long-unavailable underground hit that anticipated The Hunger Games novels by eight years, GFC is proud to screen veteran director Kinji Fukasaku’s epically violent, still-controversial, and deeply influential genre masterpiece Battle Royale. Discover the eerie mansion of transvestite scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter and a houseful of wild characters in iconic midnight movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a screamingly funny, sinfully twisted salute to sci-fi, horror, B-movies, and rock music. And in a rare theatrical screening, GFC is excited to feature the best zombie flick and one of the best horror movies ever made, legendary director George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead, written in collaboration with Italian horror master Dario Argento (Suspiria).

With the help of a panel of film experts from around the country, the film center identified the best 101 cult films of all time, and will count down the last ten including special anniversary and 35mm film screenings of:


  • December 1-3 – PINK FLAMINGOS (1972) 45th anniversary in 35mm
  • December 4-6 – SHOWGIRLS (1995) in 35mm
  • December 7-9 – REPO MAN (1984) in 35mm
  • December 10-12 – LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL (1994)
  • December 13-15 – LOGAN’S RUN (1976)
  • December 16-18 – TOMMY (1975)
  • December 19-21 – WILLY WONKA AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971) in 35mm
  • December 22 – YELLOW SUBMARINE (1968)
  • December 23 – PINK FLOYD: THE WALL (1982)
  • December 25- 27 – PINK FLOYD: THE WALL (1982) in 35mm
  • December 28-31 – PULP FICTION (1994) in 35mm

Cult 101 screening times will be revealed each month. Special screenings – 4K restorations, 35mm and 70mm presentations, panel discussions and more – are planned, and will be announced on a monthly schedule. Tickets and showtimes are available at www.gatewayfilmcenter.org.
