Cult Classics is a monthly repertory film series delivering the biggest and the best in classic films, cult favorites back to the big screen and creating fun interactive events for film fans in the Phoenix, AZ area.

Founded in July 2011, Cult Classics has been recognized as Phoenix’s leading cinema revival series. Cult Classics has been recognized twice with a Phoenix New Times Best of Phoenix Award in 2012 and 2014 and was a finalist for the 2012 Phoenix New Times Big Brain Awards in Art/Film. We’ve also been featured in The State Press, The Arizona Republic, The College Times, The East Valley Tribune, The Phoenix New Times, Fox 10 News Arizona, and Nerdvana and Phoenix New Times culture blogs. We also created and established Terror Tuesday, Video Vortex, and Fist City repertory / horror film series locally at the Majestic/Alamo Drafthouse Phoenix franchise of theaters and hosted and programmed it monthly from 2018 through 2019.

Cult Classics is produced monthly by Oculto LLC.
