The Psychotronic Film Society’s weekly Wednesday night series of overlooked feature films from across the globe continues at The Sentient Bean on Feb. 14. That’s right, the PFS will take place on Valentine’s Day night. Tired of crispy scored flounder, strawberry cheesecake and an overpriced bottle of wine? Looking for something unusual to do with your loved one that evening? Head on out to this unpretentious eatery on the Southern end of Forsyth Park and take a chance on what promises to be an extremely sultry and action-packed romance film.
The exact title of this steamy love story will remain a closely guarded secret right up until showtime, but here are a few clues: It’s an almost completely forgotten American film from the mid-1980s that made a small stir when released into theaters before vanishing without a trace shortly thereafter, remaining unavailable on home video for decades. Its two photogenic lead actors are both fairly well-known to this date and continue to work regularly in feature films and television. In real life, the female lead was formerly married to another leading man whose debut starring role in film was actually shot right here in Savannah in 1990.
Think you know what “lost” romantic suspense flick the PFS will screen? Come on out and make your guess. A full dinner menu of award-winning vegetarian food and fair-trade coffees and teas will be available before the film, plus there will be discounts on craft beer and organic wine during the show. 8 p.m. showtime, for mature audiences only.
