SURFING IS THE SOURCE, MAN. SWEAR TO GOD. Join us for our 2nd Patrick Swayze appearance this season, as we present a "Ladies' Choice" for Galentine's Day. In this absolutely bonkers film, Keanu Reeves is Johnny Utah, ex-college football star who joined the F!...B!...I!...after a career ending injury. He's assigned to infiltrate the "Ex-Presidents," a gang of bank robbers, led by Patrick Swayze's "Bodhi," who disguise themselves as ex-presidents to pull off bank robberies in order to continue to fund their search for the perfect adrenaline rush. If that's not nuts enough for you, Gary Busey also plays an FBI agent in this film.
As always, you can enjoy your favorite craft beers and great food from a full menu, delivered to your table, while you watch the film!
We'll also have a pre-show that includes poster images and soundtrack music from 1991, a specially selected set of trailers that recreates the experience of seeing this film on its first theatrical release, and some trivia for door prizes.
Doors open at 6:30 pm, and Showtime is at 7:30, so arrive early to be sure you get a great seat, and for some pre-show conversation with fellow film fans.
