If you’ve never seen the cinematic weirdness that is The Beaver Trilogy, tonight’s special screening at the new indie movie theater reRun is the perfect opportunity to catch this rarely seen gem. The theater features 60 reclaimed car seats, a gourmet snack counter, and full bar—and you’ll likely need a drink for this. Director Trent Harris’s three short films are about a young man named Gary from Beaver, Utah, who is oddly obsessed with Olivia Newton-John and believes he can sing just like her. The first film, The Beaver Kid, is the 1979 documentary about Gary; Beaver Kid 2 from 1981 is a dramatization of the documentary starring a young Sean Penn as Gary; and 1985’s The Orkly Kid stars Crispin Glover in a different take on the first two films. But come early—last call for drinks and snacks is five minutes before the film starts.
