Capp Street's Oddball Films—home of the Film+Video stock film archive specializing in the rare and the bizarre–will present a beer-themed program of films titled "Home Brewed Cinema: From Popular Drink to Pop Culture" tomorrow at 8pm. Highlights include a 1973 documentary about the brewing process, filmed at Germany's Dortmund Brewery; a 1933 W.C. Fields parody film on the evils of drinking, using his son Chester as the comitragic boozer; and "The Cat Who Drank Too Much," the description of which sounds like LOLcats meets anti-drug PSA. The segment from 1969's "Prohibition and Pot," a compilation of footage of people drinking during the Prohibition era, looks interesting as well, and Oddball will also mix in some vintage beer commercials from decades long passed. And since it's not a beer movie night without beer, Oddball will have "fine beers" available for a small donation, provided personally by Speakeasy Ales & Lagers' head brewer, Kushall Hall. Space is incredibly limited, so RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is $10.
