Pop quiz hot shot, what's the most ridiculous, Keanu packed, Denis Hopper set chewing, 90's action movie set entire on a bus?
Jon De Bont's 1994 classic SPEED duh.
"A young cop must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a city bus by keeping its speed above 50 mph." That's the jist of it. but there's oh so much more beauty in it, you gotta see it to believe it,
The evening's pre show tunes will come courtesy of THE SUPPLIERS
"- bold sonic signature with an intensity borrowed from Seattle’s golden era of grunge, the rockabilly of a rowdy Nashville roadhouse, and swagger stolen from CBGBs’ spit-soaked stage. It’s a volatile and combustible concoction, to be sure."
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 a hard boiled egg race through the theatre, 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!!!! Stay tuned for details on what the special theme drink for the evening will be!
All of this goes down July 17th. Get ready for rush hour.
$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!)
Doors at 9:00, SUPPLIERS play at 10:00, movie starts around 10:30
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...
