The Fifth Reel Presents: GALAXY QUEST feat. THE DETRACTIONS
Sat, 30 Apr 2016, 10:00 PM
By Grabthar's Hammer, The Fifth Reel invites you to join us at The Plaza on Expo weekend for our favourite con movie: GALAXY QUEST!
“Twenty years after their series was cancelled, the five stars of the classic '70s series "Galaxy Quest" are still in costume, making appearances at sci-fi conventions for legions of die-hard fans - but some of those fans are a little more far out than the actors could have ever imagined. A group of aliens who have mistaken intercepted television transmissions for "historical documents" arrive at a convention and whisk "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" and his crew into space to help them in their all-too-real war against a deadly adversary. With no script, no director and no clue about real space travel, the actors have to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the aliens believe them to be." - Rotten Tomatoes
Before the movie surf punks THE DETRACTIONS will be playing you some tunes to get you in the mood!
"They're in the shadows. They're lurking in the swamps. They're hiding under your bed. THE DETRACTIONS, are waiting patiently tto melt your face and make you rock like the living dead with their insane Surf Punk style… Just watch out because they're right behind you!" -Attainable Records, 2015
Hosting for the evening will be the always hilarious, never a dull moment, THE KINKONAUTS! Prepare to be dazzled by their hilarious antics and mind bending challenges. Past highlights include human-proton-pack ghost hunting, Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation contests, and life sized rock em sock em robots. One can only guess what they have up their sleeve this time.
As with all Fifth Reel events we will also have beer for sale in the lobby which you'll be able to enjoy in the theatre while you watch the movie!
$9 Early Bird tickets if you order before April 16th!
$10 for members of The Fifth Reel/Calgary Underground Film Festival/UofC Film Society
$15 for non-members (Free Fifth Reel memberships will be available inside the theatre for those who want to become members for next time)
FIFTH REEL HOUSE RULES:
Audience participation and dressing up is always encouraged. Yelling, cheering, jeering, quote a long. are all also highly encouraged. Past screenings have been as loud and as rowdy as the last house party you've been to. The Fifth Reel is an interactive movie going experience, the audience makes the fun. If you expect to sit on your hands in silence for two hours then this might not be for you...
