WTMD Launches New “Movie Night” Next Week
Join WTMD Wednesday August 20th for its first movie night at the WTMD studios, featuring a screening of “Call Girl of Cthulhu,” a new movie from critically acclaimed DIY Baltimore filmmaker Chris LaMartina.
It’s the first Baltimore screening of the film since it debuted at this year’s Maryland Film Festival to rave reviews. LaMartina has been featured in the New York Times, Baltimore Sun, and is one of Baltimore’s promising young filmmakers.
Inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft, “Call Girl of Cthulhu” is an homage to ‘80s and ‘90s schlock films like “Basket Case” and “Toxic Avenger.” It’s about a virginal artist who falls in love with an escort, only to realize she’s the chosen bride of the alien god Cthulhu. To save her (and the rest of mankind), he must stop an ancient cult from summoning their god.
Tickets are $15 — go to http://www.missiontix.com/cthulhu
Doors open at 7 p.m., the movie starts at 8 p.m. and a Q&A will follow.
Popcorn and beer from Union Craft Brewing will also be available.
