Beatniks Bird, Zelda, and Theo come to you from the Buffalo Comicon as we present the kings of slapstick comedy, The Three Stooges! Laugh to "Disorder in the Court" (1936). Moe, Larry, and Curly testify in defense of a nightclub singer accused of murder, only to turn the scales of justice upside down. Then in "Sing a Song of Six Pants" (1947) Moe, Larry, and Shemp run the Pip Boys Tailor Shop. If anyone wanted a perfect fit, they would come out and throw one. And in "Brideless Groom" (1947) will Shemp be able to get married by 6p.m. and get all of his family inheritance? Find out!

Beatniks Bird, Zelda, and Theo offer some "food for thought" with several movies that are brain busters...starting with "The Brainiac," Abel Salazar ( also the producer ) stars as a tortured Mexican baron returning 300 years later as a hairy brain-slurper with a long forked tongue. This movie inspired rocker Frank Zappa to write his first song, "Debra Kadabra!"

ABOUT OBC

Off Beat Cinema is a two-hour hosted movie show that airs on television stations throughout North America on the retroTV Network along with a series of independent stations. Off Beat Cinema promises to show you “the movies that must be shown” – the good, the bad and the foreign (in their original languages, of course!)

Off Beat Cinema began on October 31, 1993 as a diversion from the flood of late night infomercials that seemed to consume the available airwaves of television’s last cool frontier: late night! Once a hip haven for insomniacs, second shifters, beatniks and kids who would sneak back to the TV when their parents were solidly in dreamland, late night television had become a vast wasteland of hucksters hawking everything from cooling systems to spray-on hair in a can.

The Hungry EarThe show is filmed in the Hungry Ear Coffee House, a whacked-out poetry basement located somewhere in downtown Buffalo, NY. The Hungry Ear Coffee House is a mad pad, Dad… and the kind of place where Boris Karloff could sit with Ed Wood and discuss the transcendence of the ego and how that applies to Moe Howard getting a cream pie in the face. A comfortable pad where former Beatle Pete Best could sit with the Goo Goo Dolls and discuss the merits of 3D giant insect fear films. I think you get the picture…

The beatniks also like to take the show on the road with gigs at Canalside or at far-out locations like Hot Mama’s Canteen! Check out the fun in the portfolio section.


Zelda had some fun at the Niagara Falls ComiCon 2018 in Canada. Unfortunately, Theo and Bird were detained at the border for further questioning.

Coming soon to Off Beat Cinema, ace reporter Zelda interviews Outstanding Actor, Dora Award Nominee for JERUSALEM and Canadian Screen Awards Nominee BAD BLOOD, Kim Coates! Plus Zelda asks Dawn Wells, the hip farmer chick Mary Ann from Gillian’s Island fame, “what was her favorite B-Movie”?

Stay Tune cats and kitties!
