Cinefamily fires up the time machine once again for a return trip to late-night cable TV circa 1981. That's when USA Network first aired the wee-hour weekend trip known as Night Flight, an oddball bonanza of new-wave videos, cult films and underground animation. Night Flight Presents: A Tribute To New Wave Theatre salutes the show-within-the-show known as “New Wave Theater,” an absurd amalgam of host Peter Ivers' stream-of-conscious monologues and punk performances by the likes of the Circle Jerks, Fear, 45 Grave, Suburban Lawns and other SoCal alt-stars.
