Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
In this righteous comedy, underachievers Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) have spent so much time on their rock band, Wyld Stallyns, that they’re flunking high school history. When Ted’s dad threatens to send him away to military school, Bill and Ted realize it could mean the most heinous end of the Stallyns! Luckily, a guardian angel from the future (George Carlin) arrives with a bodacious solution: a time-traversing phone booth they can use to hear directly from history’s most influential personalities. Their journey may be a blast... but will they learn enough to pass their class? (Stephen Herek, 1989, PG, 90 min.)
This film will be followed by a screening of Wayne’s World.
In the tradition of The Ten Commandments, Lawrence of Arabia and Gandhi comes a sweeping screen epic bursting with spectacle and drama... NOT! It’s Wayne’s World, the hilarious, party-down movie featuring rockin’ tunes, radical women and your most excellent hosts, Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) and Garth Algar (Dana Carvey). When a sleazy television executive (Rob Lowe) offers the duo a big contract to tape their public-access show at his network, Wayne and Garth can’t believe their good fortune. But they soon discover the road from basement to big time is a gnarly one, fraught with danger, temptation and ragin’ party opportunities. (Penelope Spheeris, 1992, PG-13, 95 min.)
