Mission accomplished! We fulfilled our wild fantasy of serving "soylent green" to an audience of 300 at our screening of Richard Fleischer's dystopian sci-fi classic SOYLENT GREEN (1973) the year 2022...when the film takes place...on the week that the film was originally released 49 years ago! Thank you to Missionary Chocolates for indulging us and creating the most delicious vegan truffles we have ever tasted. Thank you to everyone who came out. Long live Edward G. Robinson! "There was a world once, you punk...People were always rotten. But the world was beautiful." Indeed.

Join Wyrd War on Friday May 13, 2022 for this one-night-only 49th anniversary screening of legendary Hollywood director Richard Fleischer’s classic dystopian science fiction thriller SOYLENT GREEN (1973). Tickets on sale here

The year is 2022. The place is New York City. The population is 40,000,000. Climate change, pollution and overpopulation have precipitated ecological disaster and the slow collapse of democratic society. With natural resources nearly depleted, and dying oceans no longer capable of producing plankton, the mostly illiterate masses are ruled by a sequestered elite and sustained by a mysterious processed food substance produced by the Soylent Corporation. Charlton Heston reprises similar performances from earlier sci-fi blockbusters THE PLANET OF THE APES (1968) and THE OMEGA MAN (1971) as Detective Thorn, a rugged survivor whose stubborn investigation of the death of a corporate board member leads him into a treacherous cat and mouse fight for his life as he uncovers the terrible secret of Soylent Green. Loosely based on the novel Make Room! Make Room! by former EC horror comic illustrator Harry Harrison, and predicting many of the climate change catastrophes we are currently contending with, SOYLENT GREEN also features the final performance from Golden Age screen star and outspoken antifascist Edward G. Robinson who died just days after filming his onscreen fictional death as the retired professor and keeper of civilization’s history, Sol Roth. The future is now!

Wyrd War will be serving delicious “Soylent Green” in the lobby before the film while supplies last!
