It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel... like eating green popcorn!

Come celebrate the 13th Anniversary of the day that radio DJ and numerologist Harold Camping predicted as the end of the world. Thankfully it didn't happen so we're still able to enjoy one of most notorious dystopian sci-fi films of all time!

In 2022, New York City is bursting at the seams with a 40-million-plus population. Food is in short supply, and the main source of nourishment comes from synthetics manufactured in local factories — the selections being a choice between Soylent Red, Yellow, or Green.

When an executive (Joseph Cotten) in the Soylent Company, is found murdered, police detective Thorn (Charlton Heston) is sent to investigate the case with the help of his old friend Sol (Edward G. Robinson, in his final film role) and they soon uncover the terrible truth about the real ingredients of Soylent Green.
