    7:30 p.m.
    Theatres at Mall of America®

    A monthly exploration into the strange side of cinema, Theatres at Mall of America proudly presents: TAPE FREAKS. Each month we will bring you a weird, unique, and cheesy movie we think deserves a larger audience. This series is based on the days when scouring the shelves of your local video store, relying on the cover art and misleading descriptions on the backs, would get you movies that would blow you away, make you cringe, or both. The movies will remain secret until the title hits the screen, but we'll be dropping hints on the Tape Freaks blog to give you an idea of what to expect. Learn more about each month's masterpiece of VHS delight.
