Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath! has you covered. Specializing in the best flicks to stumble onto the screen, this series is guaranteed to deliver the wildest that cinema has to offer.

No substances necessary for our upcoming screening of ALTERED STATES — one of the most hallucinogenic movies of its ilk and very much at the top of every «weird movies» listicle. It follows Dr. Edward Jessup, a brilliant but unhinged scientist who experiments with psychedelics during confinement in an isolation tank. Years into the study, Jessup finds himself in Mexico, hoping to participate in a ceremony involving psychedelic mushrooms boiled into a broth, which he is told will put him in unity with his soul. He takes the broth with him to his sensory deprivation tank, and finds that his visions develop much further than just hallucinations, they begin to actually manifest physically.

ALTERED STATES on the big screen is assuredly going to be one of the most intense ways to kick off your summer. This film is as violent as it is tender, as horrifying as it is hilarious, and as grounded as it is absolutely deranged. Adapted from the novel of the same name by Paddy Chayefsky, who found the movie to be too «heightened» in spite of it being almost verbatim to what he wrote — which is somehow understandable considering Ken Russell's penchant for presenting characters in the most lavish, padded and delirious ways imaginable. Fans of weird ones, this is a theatre experience you definitely do not want to miss.
Our screenings would be nothing without our freaky sponsors: The Beguiling and Eyesore Cinema!
