Mockbuster

The best part of watching a so-bad-its-good movie with your friends, is the dialogue that happens about the movie’s silliness. Laughing with eachother about a movie is something that is often only shared at a home watching party with a few pals. This summer, we’re giving everyone a free chance to experience the kind of watching party we can all love. We’ll be hosting free screenings for three of the biggest and most over-the-top summer movies from the 90’s:  Space Jam, Con Air, and Armageddon!

We’ll have a live Twitter feed running on two screens alongside the movie, so we can all share our thoughts about every moment that we love and hate. We’re there together, we’re watching it together…So let’s talk about it! Not only will you get a second chance to see these films at a theater, but you can enjoy hilarious crowd commentary. And it’s all totally free!

In this social era, we share all of our humorously weird thoughts on Twitter and Facebook. Live-tweeting sports events and television award ceremonies is totally a thing now. It’ll be so much fun to do the same with a theater full of people!

The venue will be fully seated, and we’ll have comedians from the Dallas Comedy House joining in on the fun, to guarantee we all get some great Twitter laughs! Doors will open at 7pm, and the fun begins at 8pm!  Join us for the summer event that let’s us all be kids again!

“The entire Looney Tunes gang joins basketball superstar Michael Jordan for this magically entertaining live-action/animated feature about a winners-take-all basketball game with a ruthless group of unsavory outer space creatures. Motion picture funnyman Bill Murray and Wayne Knight are also on hand to save the day in this hilarious romp through the far reaches to the galaxy.”

July 11th – Con Air

“Former war hero Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) is sentenced to eight years in prison when he accidentally kills a man in a barroom brawl while defending his pregnant wife. When his release comes through, he’s eager to see the daughter he’s never met. However, Poe’s original flight is delayed, so he’s put aboard a flight transporting ten of the most dangerous men in the American penal system to a new high-security facility. One of the criminals, Cyrus “The Virus” Grissom (John Malkovich), is a serial killer and insane genius who has hatched a diabolical plot: with the help of several other hoods, including Diamond Dog (Ving Rhames), Johnny 23 (Daniel Trejo), and Garland Greene (Steve Buscemi), Cyrus and his men will hijack the plane and fly to a neutral nation where they can live as free men. Poe finds himself stuck in the middle; he has to find a way to get home, keep himself alive, look after his cellmate Baby-O (Mykelti Williamson), who will die without proper medicine, and try to help the cops on the ground, including agent Vince Larkin (John Cusack).”

August 9th – Armageddon

 “Michael Bay directed this 150-million-dollar science fiction action thriller about an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, sending fireballs down on Manhattan, prompting a plan to split the asteroid into two sections before it arrives and causes human extinction. NASA executive director Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton) brings in the world’s number-one oil driller, Harry S. Stamper (Bruce Willis), who assembles his team that is trained for the task. The group includes top crew hand A.J. Frost (Ben Affleck), who is involved in a relationship with Stamper’s daughter Grace (Liv Tyler). With only days remaining, two shuttles head into space to drill 800 feet into the asteroid and nuke the rock. Back on Earth, as mini-asteroids pelt Paris and Shanghai, humanity hopes and prays for a successful mission.”
