Amoeba Music and Alamo Drafthouse New Mission in San Francisco team up for another month of mammoth movie hits with this November's Weird Wednesdays! Join us at the Alamo's beautiful movie palace in the Mission District for these weird, wacky, and wild classics:

TAMMY AND THE T-REX (1994, 4K RESTORATION)
Wednesday, November 6. 10pm
Directed by Stewart Raffill (Mac and Me), Tammy and the T-Rex is a love story as old as time. This post-Jurassic jam stars Denise Richards (Starship Troopers, Wild Things) and the late Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious) in an unprecedented mishmash of rom-com tropes and R-rated horror thrills. When Paul's mauled by the local zoo’s toothier residents, his love affair with Denise doesn’t cease — even after his brain is transplanted into an ancient animatronic predator. Oh, and did we mention “Bernie” from Weekend at Bernies’ is the villain? Originally filmed as a gorefest with impressive splatter by SFX guru John Carl Buechler, Tammy’s only minimal release back in the day was cut to PG-13, funneled straight-to-video, and inexplicably marketed as a kids’ film. Thanks to the intrepid efforts of top-notch archival pals Vinegar Syndrome, this gonzo gem is fully restored and ready to scorch your ganglia into dust!



NO HOLDS BARRED (1989)
Wednesday, November 13. 10:15pm
Co-presented by Media Meltdown who will perform before the program. (Also see their WWE-inspired show at the Make Out Room on Sunday, November 17th at 7pm.)
Hulk Hogan's legendary move from star of the ring to star of the silver screen is a muscle filled spectacle full of body slams, choke holds, and one-liners that really stick to the ribs. Hogan has a certain sunburnt charisma as "Rip Thomas," a barely transposed analog for himself, a wrestler plagued by corporate stooges who have no respect for the sport and only want to exploit his likeness for profits. After shoving a check down one such stooge's throat, they get the message and refocus their attention on the gigantic Zeuz ("Tiny" Lister of Friday). After much ado, including a bizarre romantic subplot that has nods to Capra's It Happened One Night, the movie leads up to what we've all been waiting for: NO RULES WRASSLIN'!



FINAL FLESH (2009)
Wednesday, November 20. 10:15pm
In the early 2000s, Vernon Chatman (co-creator of Wonder Showzen and producer of South Park) wrote a screenplay about a family who lives adjacent to the Ground Zero of a thermonuclear disaster. Chatman divided the script into four segments and sent them to four different companies that specialize in custom fetish porno videos. Final Flesh was born. Like the custom song poem craze of the 1970s, this shot-on-video brain-stabber is an outsider miracle of Biblical proportions. Filled with nudity, regrettable tattoos, metaphysical musings, inventive toilet humor, and no sex, Final Flesh is unlike anything else you’ve ever seen — on Earth or other places.
