Twin Courage is stripped down, good old fashioned, portable music. A couple of people playing a couple of things, all for the betterment of mankind.

Lovely Locks has evolved into a lushly harmonious, infectiously up-tempo rock outfit with a sound that’s a little Warpaint, a little Veruca Salt, and a lot of attitude. With a no-holds-barred, can’t-miss live show, Lovely Locks offers vocal-centric rock ‘n’ roll that smacks like bubblegum and digs its claws in for an unforgettable performance.

For over a decade now, The Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah has been repeatedly named the BEST LOCAL FILM SERIES in annual reader polls. The PFS of SAV shows obscure and/or underappreciated films from around the world every Wednesday at the Sentient Bean (and occasionally on other nights as well). Whether extremely well-made or “so bad they’re good,” their selections are always rare, unique and memorable.

TO SUBSCRIBE NOW TO THEIR FREE EMAIL NEWSLETTER FOR UPDATES ON ALL PFS of SAV SCREENINGS (including those not held at The Bean), JUST EMAIL YOUR FULL NAME AND REQUEST TO psychotronicfilms@hotmail.com (YOUR INFO WILL NEVER BE SHARED)!


There is only one GEORGE A. ROMERO, co-creator of the SUPREMELY influential “Zombie Apocalypse Ethos,” and director of such flat-out indie cinema classics as NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, MARTIN, DAWN OF THE DEAD, CREEPSHOW, KNIGHTRIDERS, THE DARK HALF and more.

An outspoken, literate, thoughtful and headstrong artist who rarely compromises his vision for the sake of commerce or mainstream marketability, Romero offers savagely unique outlooks on the world around us.

In fact, noted movie fan (and no slouch of a director and writer himself) QUENTIN TARANTINO famously said of Romero in 2009, “The ‘A’ in his name stands for ‘A f*cking genius.’”

In honor of Romero’s 75th trip around the sun, we’re thrilled to present a rare, public screening of one of his least-known motion pictures.

While the exact title will not be revealed before showtime (that’s a big part of the fun!), we can tell you that it’s a minor gem in his ouevre, that is rarely spoken about by critics or fans.

However, if you’re a Romero fan, you will doubtlessly enjoy this flick – and even if you’re not already a huge fan of Romero’s work, it will be easy to appreciate the flair with which it was made.

So, we hope you’ll trust our judgment, show up, buy a ticket and take a chance.

We think you’ll not regret doing so!


We’ll also be raffling off some free movie passes and odd prizes from the PFS archives before the show.

So, make sure to bring a few extra bucks with you for Raffle Tickets…


$7 admission for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY!

Seating at 7:30pm / Show starts at 8:00pm

Savannah is at a crossroads. One foot is planted in the past, another reaching toward the future.

What will Savannah's future look like?

Back with their second-ever Monday Means Community event, Port City Cultural Alliance is eager to start the conversation by featuring Savannah Undocumented Youth Alliance SUYA. Led by President, Marisol Estrada, SUYA is a grassroots organization composed of undocumented youth and their allies who work to end the Georgia College Ban, Policy Manual 4.1.6, which prevents many deserving young people from attending college. SUYA organizers will share their experiences of seeking out equal education access and how this policy has affected that journey. Together they will hold an open-panel discussion, sharing their stories of the impact of this policy on their lives, as well as engaging in a guided dialogue with audience members on how they can help. A short Q and A will be held at the end, followed by more conversation at a neighborhood bar.

You’ll get to meet many of Savannah’s emerging young leaders, be a part of a larger discussion on who counts as a person and learn about some ways that you can be a bigger part of what Savannah’s future is going to look like.
