The Atomic Café

Friday, November 6 - Sunday, November 8, 2009

Considered a “nuclear Reefer Madness,” this pitch-black comedy and timeless classic took the nation by storm upon its release. Through an artfully presented collage of newsreel footage, government archives, duck-andcover propaganda and fifties music, THE ATOMIC CAFE perfectly captures the atomic age. More than a quarter of a century later, with nuclear nonproliferation in the headlines once again, it’s still perversely topical.
