Minnesota writer/director Christopher R. Mihm’s, “Guns of the Apocalypse,” a tongue-in-cheek homage to early ’60s Italian Westerns, premieres Wednesday, Sept. 26, 7:30 pm; doors open at 6:30 pm, at The Heights Theater, 3951 Central Ave. NE, Columbia Heights. Billed as a “post-apocalyptic spaghetti midwestern,” this will be Mihm’s 14th feature film. Mihm, the Twin Cities’ most prolific feature filmmaker, specializes in producing loving homages to the classic black and white horror and science fiction films of the ’50s and ’60s.
The night will feature classic era-appropriate newsreels, previews of coming attractions, a silent auction of film memorabilia, and a raffle of valuable prizes. Tickets are $10, available in advance at sainteuphoria.com/merch. A very limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
