If you've been to the Way Out Club (2525 South Jefferson Avenue; 314-664-7438), you might have experienced warfare -- of the musical kind. Some of the talent that plays this hallowed south-side venue exudes a martial (and a Marshall) bent; that legendary raised stage back in the corner can resemble a combat zone at times. Tonight, though, war at the Way Out will be strictly of the onscreen variety, as the club hosts Super-8 Movie Madness Goes to War!
Beginning at 8 p.m. you can watch six classic war films in the condensed Super-8 format; the average length of each flick is only fifteen minutes. On tap tonight are The Bridge on the River Kwai
, Where Eagles Dare
, The Dirty Dozen
, Von Ryan's Express
, Force 10 From Navarone
and The Longest Day
. In addition to the roster above, the Way Out will also be screening several non-war-related movies. Admission is $3, but all veterans and active-duty military get in free.
