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.

Dear Friends – the Bean is closing early tonight in honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday.

So, unfortunately, our previously scheduled “Turkey for Turkey day” showing of the so-bad-it’s-good sci-fi action flick THE RAIDERS OF ATLANTIS will not be taking place.

All apologies for any confusion this change in plans may have caused.

We’ll reschedule THE RAIDERS OF ATLANTIS as soon as possible.

Keep an eye out for it. It’s AWESOME.

Strangled Darlings brings a punk intensity to their live show. Taking a cello and making it a hip hop bass. Taking mandolin and slapping it like a stubborn mule. They Portland based duo has been creating original tunes since 2009 and breaking the mold for indie music. They bring a lyrical intelligence and political punch to their songs. Their song material varies widely to cover a blend of folk, hip hop, jazz and Americana with inspiration coming from: witchcraft in the Civil War, the morality of Somali piracy and the media impact of Neil Armstrong. The band has released three studio albums and a fourth is due out this summer. Their live show mixes technical mastery with deadpan humor and a little something to shake your rumpus.
