In space, no one can hear you scream.
"After a space merchant vessel perceives an unknown transmission as a distress call, its landing on the source moon finds one of the crew attacked by a mysterious lifeform, and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun." - IMDB

Stay tuned for updates on silent auction items from our generous local donors. Silent auction winners will be notified by text near the end of the film and be asked to pay with cash, e-transfer, or PayPal.

This event will be LICENSED. We’ll be slinging a signature slime cocktail and Village beer (including their new non-alcoholic option) that you can take to your seat and enjoy during the show. Proceeds from the bar will support Femme Wave 2019!

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.

This film screening follows the lead of one of our favourite community film organizations, The Fifth Reel. Honouring their years of partying hard while movie-watching, we are implementing The Fifth Reel's house rules. So:

Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quoting- a- long are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. This is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...

The Globe Cinema is located at 617 8 Ave S.W. Debit and Credit are accepted at our Box Office, but the bar and concession are CASH ONLY (There is an ATM available on the main floor).

Femme Wave is Calgary's first and only multi-disciplinary feminist arts festival with a mission to create a safe, positive, and inclusive space for women and non-binary artists. The fifth annual Femme Wave Feminist Arts Festival is scheduled for November 7-10, 2019 across various venues in downtown Calgary. Visit www.femmewave.com for more information.

Femme Wave acknowledges Calgary as the traditional territory of the Blackfoot and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Ĩyãħé Nakoda First Nations, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley First Nations. Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

Femme Wave is committed to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race or religion.
