Rated R – Super important: The Animated program is FOR ADULTS ONLY. It is NOT a kid-friendly release like it’s been in previous years. THE WINDSHIELD WIPER features male and female nudity, sex, and adult themes. BESTIA features disturbing imagery, animal abuse, bestiality, and rather extreme violence. These films are not intended for children. We will have two title cards during the release – one in the beginning, and another that will appear just before these last two shorts. The final card will stay on screen for 30 seconds so that patrons have time to exit the theater if they choose to.
