Bringing Essential Cinema to Phoenix


PHX Film Collective is a group of film fans dedicated to bringing culturally relevant cinema to Central Phoenix. We partner with local businesses to put on screenings of classics, independent, foreign and art house cinema in interesting locations. Our goal is to eventually open an independent non-profit movie theatre to serve the Central Phoenix community.




“What We Do in the Shadows” from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi

AT MONARCH THEATRE - Sunday, October 28 at 3:30pm

After you've recovered from your Halloween party hangover, we invite you to come party with us in Monarch Theatre's upstairs lounge.

What if you made MTV’s “The Real World,” but with vampires? That’s the deceptively simple premise behind “What We Do in the Shadows,” a “This Is Spinal Tap”-style mockumentary for horror fiends, directed and written by New Zealand comic masterminds Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi – the former of “Flight of the Conchords,” the latter of “Thor: Ragnarok” and dapper wearer of pineapple-print short sets.

As in “This Is Spinal Tap,” the silliness is amped up to 11. These vampires’ digs aren’t a Transylvanian castle but a Wellington rental, where the undead flatmates squabble over housework, dirty dishes and avoiding main arteries so the couch doesn’t get soaked with blood. Those virgins are tasty, but they leave a hell of a mess on the upholstery.

Despite the geysers of blood, this horror-comedy classic has a big heart. Just don’t stick a stake through it.
This event will be held in the upstairs lounge of the Monarch Theatre. We think the venue has the right vibe for a movie about vampires who hang out in night clubs. (If you're a vampire you may have to be invited in by our bouncer) ;)

Doors open at 3pm. We'll have a short pre-show presentation starting around 3:30 and the film should start around 3:45pm.

This event is 21+, as there will be alcohol available from the bar. 

COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED! There will be a costume contest, so bring out your best Halloween duds.

Monarch Theatre is about a block from the 3rd Street and Washington light rail stop, so that's probably your best bet for public transportation. There are a variety of paking garages and paid lots in the surrounding blocks as well as metered on street parking. Since it's a Sunday afternoon, we don't expect finding parking to be much of a problem
