Aliens Invade Coolidge After Midnite This July

They’re already here!

In April 2020 the Pentagon declassified video revealing mysterious flying objects that to this day remain unidentified. That’s right, we were too distracted by the horrible year we collectively experienced to notice that the U.S. Government confirmed the existence of UFOs! We here at the Coolidge After Midnite, in an effort to prepare you, have programmed a series of films this July to remind you where this leads: Invasion!

Watch as humanity fights for survival in Independence Day and War of the Worlds (2005). Learn tactics for local resistance from genre masters Tobe Hooper (1986's Invaders from Mars) and John Carpenter (They Live). Be inspired by the bravery of our youth in Attack the Block! Only through experiencing these films together, will we gain the knowledge needed to defend our planet from whoever it is up there in our skies.
