DVR/TiVO/VCR/View-it-dammit alert: Skidoo!
I don't know how the deal was struck, but tomorrow night Turner Classic Movies will present the first showing in god-knows-how-many-years of Otto Preminger's mind-blowingly odd Skidoo (1968). An absolute must-see for fans of '60s cult cinema, camp pics, drug movies, and the Batman TV series, Skidoo is just about impossible to summarize without rhapsodizing about its inherent ridiculousness. Suffice it to say, you should watch it, it will alternately hurt and please your mind. It airs at 2:00AM, late Friday night.
