Ah youth, you were the best of times, you were the worst....nah you were the best all around really. This June come join us on yet another nostalgia trip, this time with TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.
NOT THE LAME MICHAEL BAY ONE OK, THE GOOD ONE YOU WATCHED WHEN YOU WERE A KID.
"Through contact with a mysterious substance, called Ooze, 4 little turtles in the canalization of New York mutate to giant turtles. They can speak, walk upright and love pizza. Their arch-enemy is the bad, bad guy Shredder, who struggles to gain power over the world. Of course the ninja turtles will do everything to stop him." - IMDB
THIS WILL BE A PIZZA PARTY OF LORE! That's right we'll have pizza for sale in the lobby. Delicious, delicious pizza.
The evening's pre show music will come courtesy of chip tune guru GREYSCREEN
Grey Screen is The Power Glove solo electro-project of local savant Kevin Stebner. His 8-bit gameboy arsenal packs a megaman punch of high energy power ups - Sled Island
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!!!!
Oh yeah and one last thing: TURTLES IN TIME ON THE BIG SCREEN! That's right, some lucky few will be able to actually play the SNES beat em up classic on the big screen in front of the entire theatre while GreyScreen does his thing.
All of this goes down June 19. Come be a turtle with us.

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...
