Greetings to all Psychotronic fans of the world. We are the Washington Psychotronic Film Society. A group of film lovers who meet on a regular basis, screening some of the most Psychotronic films in the world. The term Psychotronic was coined by the author of the Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film, Michael Weldon. He got it from the movie, "The Psychotronic Man". As in the term, alternative music, Psychotronic falls into that catogory. Meaning just about everything except the Norm. Got that... good. Now more about us. Were a bunch of people who love films. We come from all walks of life. Our members and mailing list consists of regular Janes and Joes, Lawyers, computer geeks, film enthusiasts/geeks, govt. workers, one millionaire, and the curious minded. What we're really all about is like..I know what.... try to imagine that you're watching a great film or a film that you've just got to tell someone about, and you want to call a friend over to watch it with you. That's us, but on a larger scale. We call up all our friends. Thanks to the Motion Picture Board of America, we were able to purchase an umbrella license from them in order to show films in theaters and clubs in the D.C. area. Our membership is free and we will never sell your name to another party. We just need donations to help pay for our license. If you'd like to help out, send your name, address, phone number (optional) and a donation of $5 or more if you'd like. No salesperson will call. Our address is:

The Washington Psychotronic Film Society
P.O. Box 65955
Washington, D.C. 20035

The WPFS was founded in 1989 by Melanie Scott. For our first 12 years, our base was in the mid-town DC area, and then we were in Virginia at The Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse, but now we're back in DC, baby! So look around and come visit us for all your Psychotronic needs.
