Crunch time

Hey all. Cage Match III is live in a little under two hours now. 16 more films, all new to the Cage Match… which is to say that yes, there are 48 distinct movies in which Nicolas Cage plays the lead (or close to it, as was the case in Deadfall last year). And after tonight, we Matchers will have seen them all. This will be hours 60-90 of direct exposure to Nicolas’s unique style of cinematic mastery, folks. It’s going to be an incredible run, and we’d love to share it with you — so come over or tune into the livestream, and experience the joy that only 30 consecutive hours of Cage movies can bring you.

-The Cage Match Team

Logistical thangz:

Time: We’re looking to start up at 9:00 CST, to be running until approximately 3am on Sunday.
Place: The Cage @ Green Door on Clark St, apt 1W.
Attendance policy: Open and free, as per usual. We knew our venue would be smaller this year so we deliberately didn’t publicize nearly as much as we have in the past. That said, we have seating for at least a dozen or so people, and visiting/staying is highly encouraged. We’ve got food and drink and stupidly comfortable couches. Come hang out.
Livestream: Workin’ on it. Should be really pretty this year. Stay tuned — link will be here or live at the top soon.

Oh I just realized: if you’re reading this page for the first time / don’t know us personally, that stuff below about last year’s Cage Match being cancelled was a bunch of BS we had to post in order to make our school’s administration happy. The Match proceeded without a hitch, just rather sneakily, and I can’t post what the old venue was. But since this year is in our private residence we get full broadcasting rights so that won’t be an issue again. Cheers!
