DRIVE-IN (Sold Out) + Online Viewing!

As the bassist of the three-piece punk-rock band, DUH, Judy dreams of quitting her job and touring full time. With no van and a string of gigs booked, the slacker band is getting desperate. Enter Uncle Peckerhead. Soon the band finds themselves on their first tour with a man-eating hillbilly for a roadie and "gig life" is filled with nightmares and half-eaten bodies.

UNCLE PECKERHEAD is a bloody film that splatters the screen with great music, cheap thrills, gory mayhem and a helluva lot of fun.

Alberta Film Classification Rating: 18A Gory Scenes

Drive-in Location: Big Rock Brewery, 5555 76 Ave SE (map) Tickets must be pre-purchased online in advance. No tickets are being sold on location.
