Cobra Woman 

When: Fri., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $5-7

One of those lesser-known treasures occasionally unearthed by classic film series, 1944's Cobra Woman was directed by Robert Siodmak, better known for such noirs as Criss Cross and The Killers. It stars "Queen of Technicolor" Maria Montez in a dual role as a lovely island woman who's kidnapped by her evil High Priestess sister, mistress of the Deadly Cobra Dance—one of the most utterly goofy dances ever committed to celluloid. (It's on YouTube, see for yourself.) A camp favorite of everyone from critic Pauline Kael to subversive filmmaker Kenneth Anger, it has insanely giant sets, costumes and other relics from the early days of Technicolor, and such 1940s character actors as Lon Chaney Jr. and Sabu. Get some mad old-school jungle action and adventure for $5–7 starting at 8 p.m. —Zack Smith
