The sci-fi horror comedy “Class of Nuke ’Em High” (1986) is a B-movie cult classic. It tells the gloriously gory tale of high-school students Chrissy and Warren and the strange things happening at their school located to a nuclear power plant in New Jersey. The latest installment of the campy series “Return to Nuke ’Em High: Vol. 1,” makes its Virginia premiere at the Byrd Theatre. It’s filled with gratuitous sex, cartoonish ultra-violence (some special effects are by Richmond’s Drew Bolduc of “The Taint” fame and Michele Lombardi) and the blackest of black humor, while tackling issues such as food contamination, bullying and homosexuality with a sinister yet oddly wholesome wit. A question-and-answer session follows with the inspirational director and co-founder of the independent film studio, Lloyd Kaufman. Get nuked at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Byrd. Tickets are $5-$7. byrdtheatre.com.
