Nashville ain't just rhinestones

Help Cult Fiction Underground, Nashville, Tennessee's preeminent destination for all things different, fringe, or weird, reopen their doors to the public in style.

Cult Fiction Underground originated on the underground film convention circuit and morphed into a theater and lounge that provides a venue for Nashville's most progressive and dynamic art, film, comedic, and musical events as well as continuing to license and show underground, forgotten, and foreign films.

The lease at Cult Fiction Underground's previous location ended and it has now relocated to a more spacious building with some of the best parking in East Nashville. CFU is reaching out to you, members of the city's artistic community, fans of cult cinema, and anyone else who is looking to establish a unique space where creative endeavors are cultivated and encouraged. Also, you can also pick up a great sandwich and cold drink.

Cult Fiction Underground has served as a community hub for four years. There have been blues bands, burlesque, poetry, comedy, primitive country music, tentacle draped art shows, cross-dressing, zombies, and witches.
It has served as host to independent film makers debuting their work and been a space where writers, poets, and comedians come to perfect their craft. There have been costume contests and theme parties: Bukowski, Lebowski, and Ed Wood. Cult Fiction Underground is a place where the heroes of underground cinema show up and sign autographs and screen their hits with the audience.

Cult Fiction Underground needs your help – there are a few improvements that must be made in order for the city to approve our new building – so we are reaching out to you. Take a little time and see what you can spare for a few great immediate gifts and the long-term knowledge that you helped us get back to giving to the community you love being a part of.

Thank you.

Sorry for the long silence everyone but it seems that all your amazing contributions have to be used for finding a different location since the Trinity Lane one won't meet codes.

The guys are hard at work trying to find a new home for the weirdos so keep checking CFUs Facebook for updates (and your gifts will be available by the time we open!)
