The Mixed Tape Film Series: Update!

As many of you know, in the next couple of weeks here, Mike and I have no less than two events that are part of the Mixed Tape Film Series.

Here's the first one:

Scary Movie Double Feature
Friday the 13th Part III in 3-D
-and-
The Monster Squad

The Mixed Tape Film Series continues to roll ahead with this special grindhouse-styled presentation which kicks off with the 1980's horror cult classic Monster Squad. Best described as The Goonies meets the classic monsters of yesteryear, this nard-kicking monster mash-up created a storm in the bootleg DVD circuit until it's official release last summer.

Here's the trailer.

Then after the Squad, we'll be kicking things up into the third dimension with Friday the 13th Part III in 3-D. Watch Jason wear a hockey mask for the first time as he slashes his way through a bevy of lusty camp counselors in literally eye-popping 3-D.

Here's the Trailer.

Admission for this special one-time only event is $6. 3-D glasses will be provided, and as always, the beer is $1 a bottle.

Also note that the people who wear the best Halloween costumes will win awesome prizes like free movie tickets, pizza, CD's, T-shirts, and more.

A lot of people are excited about this event. Matter of fact, we are dangerously close to selling out. Do not be that guy or girl who spends hours - or even minutes - whipping up a costume only to show up to the theater on Thursday night and be turned away.

You can pre-order your tickets here.

After that:

Wes Anderson Night
Rushmore

In the fall of 1998, filmmaker Wes Anderson released his second feature film Rushmore. Not only was the film a well-written comedy about extracurricular activities and unrequited love, but it also featured the greatest soundtrack of licensed music and reinvented Bill Murray's floundering career. This film created the template for the quirky/somber indie comedy for our generation, and without it, there would be no Garden State, no Napoleon Dynamite, no Juno, and no Nick and Norah.

Ten years later, The Mixed Tape Film Series will be giving fans who missed their chance the first go around to watch this contemporary classic in 35 mm on the big screen.


Here's the trailer.

As always, beer, slices of pizza, cookies, and soda will be on sale for $1 each.

The movie will run at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 5

I went ahead and bought tickets online, but note that Firefox seems doubtful of the security of that site and required me to post an exception to its certificate. This may scare some online ticket buyers off.

Ian,

Looking forward to seeing you at the big show on Thursday. As for the security, I can assure you that it's fine. However, I will take that issue up with our top brass.

Well, I finally got my tickets, but it wasn't exactly easy. I can see why Firefox didn't trust the Carousel fax. When you "purchase" your tickets online, you're actually actually sending a message to a fax machine in their office. That's right; a fax prints out there with your credit card info on it and then, at some later time, a Carousel employee rings it out through the cash register. And my case, they LOST the fax. Jesa the manager, who is a sweetie, was really helpful, and apologize profusely for their fax machine and website situation, but I ended up having to go by there and get the tickets at the box office, and now I'm rather disturbed by that the thought that there may be a sheet of paper floating around the theater somewhere with my Visa info on it.
