The Element Film Series - Brews & Views - presents retro-classic film programming, tailored primarily to the tastes of film fans who grew up in the era spanning the 70s to the 90s. You can enjoy your favorite craft beers and great food from a full menu, delivered to your table, while you watch the film!
THE NAME IS DALTON...and he wants you to be nice... Join us as we present Patrick Swayze at his throat-rippin' best, as Dalton, the philosopher-cooler-bouncer at the Double Deuce road house. This film is usually regarded in the category of so-bad-it's-good. But, most people who love this film, REALLY love it, as it attained cult status almost immediately upon its 1989 release. And, let's be honest, why not show a movie about a bar for an event called Brews & Views?
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 1989, 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.
