Our next Suds and Cinema is: WAYNE'S WORLD

Posted By on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 at 9:29 AM

Y'all better start memorizing the lyrics to "Bohemian Rhapsody," because guess what? We're showing Wayne's World for the next edition of our Suds and Cinema series.

So, on Thursday, October 23, find your tattered jeans and best black t-shirt and come to the Bing Crosby Theater with your air guitar well practiced for a screening of perhaps the best Saturday Night Live spin-off film of all time. If you're not hip to Suds and Cinema, here's how it works: we show a movie you've probably seen and probably love, and show it to you while you drink locally crafted beer.

For this installment, we're bringing in the Northwest's best lager maker, Orlison Brewing, who will be pouring a couple of their popular brews. Their crew will be on hand to let you know what's going on out at their Airway Heights production facility and probably let you have a sticker, if you're not a jerk about it.

So why Wayne's World? First off, why not? Secondly, it's an excellent encapsulation of the early 1990s, as told through the eyes of two guys who live with their parents but are outrageously popular for their public access television show. There's corporate greed (Rob Lowe!), rock and roll (Alice Cooper cameo!), a classic '90s babe who knows both martial arts and wicked bass lines (Tia Carrere!) and a number of classic lines about gun racks, puking, "schwinging," Grey Poupon and much, much more. So yeah, it wasn't a difficult decision.

We'll get beers pouring at 6:30 pm and then start the movie at 7:30. As always, it's $4 to get in and $4 pints of beer. Stay tuned for costume contest and giveaway details.

In the meantime....
