By on June 29, 2016

Night Flight continues our celebrations based around our release of the Night Flight Plus subscription channel with a special screening of Night Flight: Born Again, the nearly 90-minute film of memorable “Night Flight” highlights, on Tuesday, July 5, 7-10pm, at the Alamo Drafthouse San Francisco, located at 2550 Mission St, 94110. Night Flight’s founder/creator Stuart Shapiro will once again be on hand for a Q&A session after the movie.

Please visit our special Facebook event page and let us know if you’ll be there too.

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE SF 1

The Alamo Drafthouse San Francisco opened its doors last year after a massive renovation that took three years to complete, a reported $10 million restoration that returned the New Mission to its original glory, mixing the original 1920s decor with state-of-the-art-technology for its luxury six-screen multiplex setting.

Join us for the special big-screen tribute to the most radically fun, nostalgically cranium-bursting television program of all time. An ecstatic assault featuring some the weirdest and wildest Night Flight moments of all time! See for yourself why VH1 called us “the single greatest rock omnibus program ever aired” and Brooklyn Vegan named us “the most consistently weird and awesome thing on cable television in the ’80s.”

NEW WAVE THEATRE 2

Featured in the collage-style documentary — an official selection of the Los Angeles Film Festival in 2008 — are a diverse variety of familiar names who appeared on our 80s TV show, which was broadcast on the USA Network, including newly restored segments on Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music, Kate Bush, Black Flag, The Cure, David Lynch, Night Flight’s very own Larry Hankin and much more!

Night Flight: Born Again also features popular appearances by B.B. King, Devo, Divine, Frank Zappa, Grace Jones, KISS, Lou Reed, Malcolm McLaren, Meat Loaf, Ozzy Osbourne, Wendy O. Williams, along with “New Wave Theatre“‘s Peter Ivers and special taped performances by Angry Samoans, D.I., Fear, Gun Club and Nervous Gender, along with classic video from All You Need Is Love, “Queen: Under Review 1973-1980” and much more!

ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE SF  2

“NIGHT FLIGHT—fuzzily remembered by ’80s punks who tuned in after stumbling home from shows, or, if you’re a little bit younger and had no boundaries, watched all night long at a Saturday night sleepover—represents the golden age of basic cable television. The variety program ran overnight on Fridays and Saturdays on the USA Network, and featured music videos, short films, documentaries, and animation like Bambi Meets Godzilla and Mr. Bill. And with MTV still in its infancy, Night Flight was the place to catch all the coolest punk and New Wave music videos. It was intended as “a beacon of fresh cutting-edge entertainment that was just not available anywhere on TV,” according to show creator Stuart S. Shapiro.” (AV Club)

Shows from original Night Flight original catalogue are being made available via our exclusive streaming channel Night Flight Plus, along with hundreds of feature films (we’re adding new films each week).

The goal of Night Flight Plus is to resurrect the editorial spirit of Night Flight with the same original curatorial edge they had in the ’80s for a new generation. This time around Night Flight’s special brew will be available anytime, anywhere, not just 3 A.M. in 1984.

Night Flight Plus is now streaming via its premium subscription service, currently available on Roku, Amazon Fire and Chromecast devices. (The service will be available on Apple TV in the near future.)

A subscription to Night Flight Plus runs $2.99 a month or $29.99 for the year.
