You know who's rad? Jim Carrey. Let's hang out and watch some of his movies yeh? While we're at it let's watch a great band play and have some cold ones. On July 29 TFR pays tribute to the enigmatic Jim Carrey. First film on the docket is the Farrelly Bros' DUMB AND DUMBER
“Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are best friends and roommates living in Providence, Rhode Island who struggle at every aspect of life. Lloyd, a limousine driver, falls in love with Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly), a woman he is driving to the airport. She intentionally leaves a briefcase in the terminal; Lloyd, unaware that it contains ransom money for her kidnapped husband, Bobby, retrieves it and tries to return it to her with Harry's help.”
“Kick his ass seabass!”
“Big gulps, huh?”
“OUR PET'S HEADS ARE FALLING OFF”
One of the most quotable movies of the 90's in a theatre full of pals. Killer right?
After that we'll be playing a secret midnight movie. What will it be? WHO KNOWS. WE DON'T EVEN KNOW.
Musical guest for the evening will be playing before Dumb and Dumber and will be JOHN LESBIAN SEAGULL! “A shared affinity for loud guitars, beer that comes in 20 packs, suck knobs that are not broken off, rock en roll, rhythm and booze. We carry on turning our amps as loud as they go, and we don't hate each other”
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 July 15th!
$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...
