Not quite, but today at The Omniplex we have special guest Austin Trunick, author of The Cannon Film Guide Vol. 1, 2, and soon to be 3!

Whether you’re just now learning about this amazing studio or you’re a long time avid fan, this interview will be sure to entertain. Have I sold you yet? Then listen on!

OPX 16: Safe

The Omniplex is open, and today we are paying homage to Todd Haynes’ 1995 film Safe. We get a little raw and open in this one as we talk a film that takes place in 1987, yet resonates.. a little too well. So! Let’s dive in, shall we?

OPX 12: With Pride Part II, Beyond June

The Omniplex is open! We’re coming at you with Pride a little late this year, but with the question: why shouldn’t it go beyond June? With that in mind this week we talk themes of representation, who gets to play queer characters onscreen, and what is gender anyway? So sit back and enjoy this extension of Pride Month.

Opening Monologue by Zephyr. You can read the full transcript with source links here.
