After meeting on the set of Frankenstein flick TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 in 1985, Geena Davis and Jeff Goldblum were destined to make monster movie romance in horror master David Cronenberg’s THE FLY (1986) and Julian Temple’s campy, extra-terrestrial musical, EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY (1988). Join the Roxie as we honor America’s mutant sweethearts with these two classic films on 35mm!

THE FLY (1986)
In this standalone remake of the 1958 horror film, a brilliant scientist, Seth Brundle (Goldblum), meets investigative journalist Veronica Quaife (Davis) as he is in the exciting early stages of a revolutionary invention: a pair of telepods that can transport matter from one pod to another. Starting with inanimate objects, Veronica documents Seth’s experiments. His obsessions and inflated confidence reach their height when he decides to teleport himself, not knowing that he is sharing the telepod with a tiny housefly. What ensues is a truly horrific and poignant lesson in the limitations of science from the master of body horror, David Cronenberg.

Directed by David Cronenberg. 1986. 96 mins. 35mm.

EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY (1988)
In this musical sci-fi comedy directed by pop-culture curator Julien Temple (ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, THE GREAT ROCK N’ ROLL SWINDLE), Valley girl Valerie (Geena Davis) is dealing with her philandering fiancé when a trio of fur-covered aliens crash their spaceship into her swimming pool. Curious, and with three dumbfounded aliens on her hands, she takes them into the beauty shop where she works and enlists Candy (80’s pop icon Julie Brown) to transform them into three shaven, handsome men. The group embarks on a journey through the LA party scene in what becomes a colorful, whimsical and perfectly cheesy spoof on LA culture. Featuring a cast of soon-to-be superstars (Jeff Goldblum, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans), fit to bring the ridiculous alien antics to life.

Directed by Julien Temple. 1988. 100 mins. 35mm.
