In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we spend time with Rico Gagliano, host of the MUBI podcast, who takes us to the Westgate Movie Theater in Minneapolis for a story about a movie that flopped so terribly that it changed the course of the theater’s history.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
