Respected scientist and psychology professor Edward Jessup decides to combine his experiments in sensory deprivation tanks with powerful hallucinogenic drugs, convinced that it may help him unlock different states of consciousness. The experiments are a success at first, but as Jessup continues his work, he begins to experience altered mental and also physical states. As he spends more time in sensory deprivation, his grip on reality begins to slip away.

With live music performance by Private Investigators in the lobby at 9:00PM.

FILM ARTICLE: “A trippy, post-hippie take on the mad scientist story, this is a meeting of the academic and the counterculture, the talky and the flashy, the scientific and the religious.” – Vue Weekly
