All Throwback Thursday Quizzo & Movie Events are 21+ Only.
This screening will feature live music 30 minutes prior to start time.
One of the most successful movies ever spawned from the Saturday Night Live universe, Penelope Spheeris’s riotous buddy comedy is the saga of affable doofuses Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey), metalheads who broadcast a public-access TV show from a basement in suburban Chicago. When the show catches the eye of a smooth-talking network executive (Rob Lowe), the two are forced to defend their integrity and the show, all while Wayne romances a foxy rocker (Tia Carrere).
Cast: Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere
“As Wayne or Garth would say, it’s schweeeet.” –The Washington Post
