A scheming couple put a struggling family man and his old friend through a series of increasingly twisted dares over the course of an evening at a local bar.

“Class warfare comes perversely home in Cheap Thrills, a fiendish, fierce, and funny morality tale about the true value of money. It’s absolutely convincing, even though it shouldn’t be.” -Peter Martin, Twitch


Join PFS and Dan Tabor from Geekadelphia before the CHEAP THRILLS screening on Saturday April 5 at 10 pm for a special ‘daring’ event. Participants can win movie swag and PFF: Spring Showcase tickets by completing these outrageous dares:

  • Shave off your hipster beard (beard must be at least 2 inches)
  • The armpit sandwich: Smear jelly in one armpit and peanut butter in the other armpit, then use two slices of bread to wipe it off, put it together and eat the sandwich!
  • Put ice down pants and stand still for 4 minutes.
  • And the most daring of all: get a tattoo of the Philadelphia Film Society (PFS) logo!

Anyone who shows their ultimate fan status by getting a Philadelphia Film Society tattoo will receive a year’s pass to the Roxy, good for free movie tickets for an entire year. Participants will have 72 hours to visit A-One Tattoo in Franklinville, NJ and get your free PFS ink. Two individuals who shave their hipster beard will win a ticket to any film screening in the upcoming PFF: Spring Showcase.
