Tromeo and Juliet

When: Sat., April 8 2017

Romeo and Juliet is a timeless story that has gone through many, many iterations, but none quite like the wild and shocking Troma Entertainment’s take on Shakespeare’s classic. Troma, the independent film company responsible for cult classics like The Toxic Avenger and Surf Nazis Must Die, sets the famous play in Manhattan and renamed it Tromeo and Juliet. The aesthetic is similar to other Troma films; horror, sex, violence and low-budget special effects are all present. Motorhead’s Lemmy plays the role of the narrator. Tonight at 10, the Cedar Lee Theater screens the movie, and Lloyd Kaufman, the film’s director and the founder of Troma Entertainment, will appear in person for a Q&A after the film. Tickets are $6.
