We have decided to throw a fundraising event to help out R.A.R.E. with their amazing cause. All proceeds from the doors and various activities will go straight to R.A.R.E. and TechNoir will not be making any money off of this.

Activities we have planned includes:

A Goth/Industrial Burlesque Performance by Buffalo's own The Stripteasers!!! (11:45-12:05)

Western New York's hottest fire spinner, Phoenix!! Here's a video of her spinning fire at Tilt:

R.A.R.E. is a New York State registered animal shelter/rehab center under the direct supervision of a qualified reptile veterinarian and a local wildlife rehabilitator/certified reptile specialist. Here abused, sick/injured, abandoned reptiles and amphibians are given the best supportive care possible until they can be adopted out to pre-approved homes. R.A.R.E. is proud to be Western New York's leading reptile organization, and operate the area's only exclusive reptile care facility.

On March 8th, 2006, RARE's world came tumbling down, during a early evening fire caused by old wiring in the walls, 40 out of 75 animals were lost. Not wanting to admit defeat, RARE members again rallied to come together and get the surviving animals moved to a temporary storefront until the RARE Bldg could be restored. Thirty five of the surviving animals were set up at the storefront, where we are today and we have added an additional 65 animals to date.

This shelter receives no financial support from any town, county, state or federal government grants. To raise monies needed for the housing, feeding, and medical care of these animals, besides membership fees and donations, R.A.R.E. holds summer fund-raisers, offers educational programs to local schools, organizations and veterinary hospitals.

Coming Soon:
(WNY Premiere starring JOHN RATZENBERGER)

Two genre movies plus classic grind house trailers.



A dark, gothic, one-of-a-kind macabre comedy. Directed by James Whale, subject of the
acclaimed "Gods and Monsters," "The Old Dark House" tells the story of three weary travelers
who find shelter in a mysterious Welsh manor, soon find themselves in the un welcoming
company of the psychotic Femm family--and never will they be the same!

1921 Silent with Musical Score
A milestone of the silent film era and one of the first "art films" to gain international acclaim,
this eerie German classic from 1919 remains the most prominent example of German
expressionism in the emerging art of the cinema. Stylistically, the look of the film's painted
sets--distorted perspectives, sharp angles, twisted architecture--was designed to reflect
(or express) the splintered psychology of its title character, a sinister figure who uses
a lanky somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) as a circus attraction. But when Caligari and his
sleepwalker are suspected of murder, their novelty act is surrounded by more supernatural
implications. With its mad-doctor scenario, striking visuals, and a haunting, zombie-like
character at its center, Caligari was one of the first horror films to reach an international
audience, sending shock waves through artistic circles and serving as a strong influence
on the classic horror films of the 1920s, '30s, and beyond.
