This April The Fifth Reel is teaming up with World One Arcade + Bar and Video Game Trader to bring you a totally awesome blast from the past- MORTAL KOMBAT (1995)
“Warrior monk Liu Kang, actor Johnny Cage and soldier Sonya Blade, guided by the god Raiden embark on a journey to combat the evil sorcerer Shang-Tsung and his forces in a tournament to save Earth." — IMDB
Our special preshow extravaganza — Before the movie we're throwing A MORTAL KOMBAT TOURNAMENT ON THE BIG SCREEN! Sign-up will be at the door and we will have a player cap so get there early if you really wanna play! All skill levels welcome! The movie will start immediately following the tournament at 10:30.
Tight right? Wanna know how we’re gonna make it even better? World One will be bringing down some ARCADE CABS for you to play in the Globe’s lobby!

FIFTH REEL HOUSE RULES:
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). The Fifth Reel bar is located upstairs, where you will find our menu of alcoholic beverages. Popcorn etc. is located at the concession stand downstairs. 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. The Fifth Reel 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…
That said; racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic language/behavior will NOT BE TOLERATED. We want people of all genders, creeds, cultures, and sexualities to feel welcome at our shows. We reserve the right to remove any patron creating an unsafe environment for our audience, volunteers, and/or staff.
