Midnight Movie Madness: The Matrix

When: June 5-6, 11:59 p.m. 2015

A powerful fusion of popcorn fare and philosophy, this sci-fi classic is even more relevant now than it was in 1999. Keanu Reeves stars as a computer hacker who discovers that he is living in a simulated reality called the Matrix — a world humans dream of while machines harvest their sleeping bodies for energy. The film seemed to foreshadow our plunge into virtual worlds like Facebook and our blindness to the reality behind our computer screens. Like the best works of sci-fi, it sends viewers down a rabbit hole of eye-opening ideas, otherworldly sights and strange yet sympathetic characters. And it’s kicking off the Keystone Art Cinema’s summer movie series. — Sam Watermeier
