The Fifth Reel Presents: SPACE JAM feat. TERMINAL HEAD
Fri, 17 Jun 2016, 10:45 PM
Welcome to the jam mother*uckers. Before Hollywood poisons the well once again with another beloved childhood classic remake, come see Michael Jordan and Buggs Bunny play basketball against a team of aliens. After 20 years it still sounds utterly ridiculous/amazing.
“Professional basketball player Michael Jordan announces his retirement from the sport to follow his late father's career as a baseball player. However, it becomes evident that he is not as skilled in baseball as he was in basketball. Jordan is assigned a publicist, the bumbling Stan Podolak, to make his new career less bumpy. Elsewhere, in outer space, an intergalactic amusement park called Moron Mountain faces dwindling popularity, so its owner, Mr. Swackhammer, sends his diminutive minions, the Nerdlucks, to capture the Looney Tunes as new entertainment. The Looney Tunes live in an animated world hidden in the center of the Earth, but are unable to listen to the Nerdlucks' threats and challenge them to a game of basketball to try to win back their freedom. MJ is sucked down a hole while playing golf with Bill Murray and Newman (actually) and is recruited by Bugs Bunny to help the Tunes win against the Monstars.
The super duper preshow tunes will consist of TERMINAL HEAD. Dizzying garage rock provided by members of The Nancees and No River. It'll make you wanna slam a dunk or two.
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! Also for ONE NIGHT ONLY we'll be serving a special theme drink MIKE'S SECRET STUFF!
$9 Early Bird tickets if you order before June 3rd!
$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...
