Get Out on the TownPosted: Updated:
Geek Out on the Town with Krissy Lenz the Guru of Geekery
Get LIVE! Our recommendation for LIVE, local entertainment is NCT Phoenix, the Valley’s home for hilarious, spontaneous and interactive Improv Comedy! NCT’s comedy shows bring the spontaneous improv you love on shows like Whose Line is it Anyway in an interactive experience where you get to shout suggestions to the comedians. NCT takes it one step further than that because at NCT YOU (the audience) get to choose the improv games, shout suggestions for what they will be about AND THEN decide which of the teams of comedians was FUNNIEST of the night!
NCT is a great opportunity to get out on the town for the whole family- all Friday and Saturday night Improv Comedy Shows are ALL AGES and appropriate for ALL AUDIENCES! Want to get even geekier than that? Come see Krissy herself perform at special events like Harry Potter Weekend or the Halloween Spooktacular!

Get INTERESTING! There are very awesome options in the Valley for unique movie going experiences. We love Film Bar in downtown Phoenix. Film Bar is truly that…. A super cool BAR that has a deep and abiding love of FILM. Film Bar specializes in Indie and Foreign flicks, as well as Cult, Classic, Retro, and Locally Made films. They offer a variety of craft beer and wine, as well as snacks and candy! My favorite feature at Film Bar is, of course, the monthly retro-themed film series for only $5 admission!
FilmBar has won the Phoenix New Time’s Best of Phoenix “Best Indie Cinema” EVERY year since they opened, so we recommend checking out some unique cinema soon!

For more retro fun at a unique movie going experience, I love Cult Classics AZ at Pollock Tempe Cinemas! Cult Classics is a monthly repertory film series that creates a unique and interactive experience around the retro, revival and classic movies they show.
At each screening the Cult Classics Crew also puts together one of a kind art prints, unique preshow trailers and clips set to match the mood for each screening.
