Way Out Goes to War 

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.
Tue., Aug. 5, 8 p.m., 2014
