Crosstown Theater
1350 Concourse Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104 United States

The Crosstown Arts Weekly Film Series is an arthouse-style film series showcasing a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground and documentary features.

Films begin at 7:30 pm sharp.
Tickets are $5 (at the door only)


Written and directed by Penelope Spheeris and produced by Roger Corman, Suburbia begins with a toddler being killed and eaten by a stray dog and doesn’t really let up from there.

The story centers around a punk rock squat in a semi-abandoned row of tract housing whose young inhabitants brand themselves with the initials T.R., for The Rejected.  There are fights, stabbings, charges of molestation, suicide, funeral crashing, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers putting a live rat in his mouth, The Vandals, D.I., and True Sounds of Liberty!  Everything any normal person would ever want in a bleak, depressing film about teenage punks you will absolutely find in Suburbia!!
