Video Blender promises all of the film kitsch you can possibly stand jam-packed into 120 minutes of madness. B-movie clips, retro educational videos, animation, music videos, experimental film, and shorts from popular indie directors are all part of the mix-and-match movie fun, which includes a special half-hour preshow of all '80s clips.

Video Blender is showing for one night only on Friday, July 5, starting at 7 p.m. in Whiteman Hall at the Phoenix Art Museum. Tickets will be available at the door for $7, though they're also up for grabs in advance online for the same price.
