Four scenes that will convince you to watch Hot Rod with us next week

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2015 at 1:34 PM

A week from today, Thursday, Aug. 20, we're going to be pulling a big-ass stunt at Kendall Yards and you guys are all invited. You do not need the spirit of a dolphin and/or hawk to attend, but it is suggested.

Yes, we are showing Hot Rod, perhaps the best movie ever made about the worst stuntman ever to walk to the planet. It marks the first time we've taken our Suds and Cinema series outdoors and, well, we're pretty excited. Also, the movie is totally free and, again, outdoors at Kendall Yard's Nest. This is the plaza next to Central Food. For the more visually inclined, it's this place.

Beer will be provided by River City Brewing and served up by The Tap Mobile, Spokane's only mobile beer bar. Beers are $4, like usual, and we'll get those frosty bronsons served up to you at 6:30 while you set up your politely sized chairs and/or blanket for a movie to start shortly after 8. Again, be polite with your set up, don't do this.

If you've never seen Hot Rod, here are some things that might make you realize the awful truth that every moment you've spent since this movie came out has been wasted.

A reason to never say "cool beans." Not ever.

Eat your heart out Kevin Bacon.

The film was far ahead of its time in terms of race relations.
Just a taste of the big-ass stunts the movie provides to you.
