Due to all the wild St. Patrick's Day shenannies, JAGERCON has been canceled this week considering the bar will most likely be too rowdy for nerdy movie viewing. We WILL be screening Labyrinth AND Tron next Tuesday, March 24th, however, so save the date and don't forget to reinforce your glasses with plenty of tape!
On Tuesday, March 10th JagerCon goes old school with two sci-fi classics, Forbidden Planet and Angry Red Planet Brave the snow and come nerd out with us! 10 p.m. at Clubhouse Jager every Tuesday night.
Science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick spent his career—and by all accounts his leisure time—obsessed with the notion that reality and humanity were ultimately ungraspable concepts, so it’s fitting that the most famous film taken from his work would be so unstable. Director Ridley Scott’s adaptation of Dick’s short novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? has seen five major iterations, beginning with a 1982 work print used for test screenings through a 2007 cut released to theaters as “The Final Cut.” The looming question of whether Harrison Ford is a replicant or not is, therefore, definitively unanswerable—something Dick would have appreciated. Here, the weekly sci-fi movie night JagerCon screens the director’s cut first released in 1992. -The Onion/The Decider
Geeks have taken over the movie industry (how many superhero movies did you see last year?) and even that über-geek, Conan O'Brien, is bumping Jay Leno from "The Tonight Show."
Now the geeks are taking over one of the Twin Cities' coolest bars, Clubhouse Jäger. A new weekly night called "JagerCon: Sci-Fi Tuesdays" invites bargoers to "mingle with like-minded sci-fi geeks, discuss 'D&D' strategies and use that Captain Picard impression you've been perfecting to pick up chicks at the bar."
Each week, a different movie from the sci-fi pantheon is screened above the dance floor. This Tuesday it's the director's cut of the 1982 Harrison Ford film "Blade Runner." The night was created by two L'Etoile magazine alums, Kate Iverson and Beth Hammarlund. They will also screen TV shows such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Star Trek."
To help their fellow geeks open up a bit, the bar will offer two-for-one drinks all night.
