Midnite Movies presents Fantastic Planet

Written by Joe D on April 28th, 2009

As a youth I often ventured to the Midnite Movies at a (somewhat) nearby theater, the Park in West Caldwell, NJ. I saw many a strange and wonderful film there until the place mysteriously burned to the ground. Was the neighborhood fed up with hordes of hippie types exiting at 2AM, trailing clouds of marijuana smoke, walking across manicured lawns, crashing through bushes. Who knows. But here is a trailer for one of the Midnite Movies I saw there, a hallucinatory animated feature called Fantastic Planet. See it if you can, hopefully surrounded by love children in an old movie palace, the acrid fumes of cannabis wafting by.
