The Cannonball Roarers

Jaclyn Danger and Matthew Lloyd program the Psychotronic Film Series and The Secret Series, in which they bring to life rare cinematic immersive experiences that have never before been seen in Kansas City. Through consciously varied programming they provide opportunities for different demographics to interact, exchange ideas, and discuss visual imagery. Jointly they promote the visibility of queer culture through films that challenge mainstream societal and cinematic expectation as well as provide a platform for traveling film festivals and filmmakers.

From sailboats to haunted drain tunnels, the Cannonball Roarers have showcased memorably strange events in a variety of strangely memorable locations! Collaborating with performers, musicians, dancers and so much more, they strive to change the way our community engages with great cinema.
