The doggedly defiant schlockmeisters of Troma Films, one of the oldest and most successful independent movie studios, have survived to become the model distribution and production company for cult entertainment.

The Northwest Film Forum presents a twenty-five year retrospective of Troma’s influentially un-PC, raunchy, and cartoonish hits at Seattle’s longest running independent movie theatre, the Grand Illusion Cinema.
