Turn it up to 11

Turn it up to 11

And you better show up early if you intend to get in! Tuesday night January 18 brings one of the great comedies of our generation and a bona fide cult classic to Enzian at 9:15 PM–THIS IS SPINAL TAP. This pseudo-rockumentary about the minimal rise and career-long fall of a lame heavy metal band (with members “David St. Hubbins,” “Nigel Tufnel,” and “Derek Smalls”) was Rob Reiner’s directorial debut and still reigns supreme as one of the all-time best satires ever made about the music business.

Advance ticket sales for this Sundance Channel Film Series/Cult Classics monthly selection are the hottest we’ve ever had (and that’s saying a lot considering the recent run of titles including DONNIE DARKO, VANISHING POINT, EL MARIACHI, FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, BRAZIL, KIDS IN THE HALL: BRAIN CANDY and ARMY OF DARKNESS), so I guess this is one December movie event that doesn’t need to worry about people being too busy with Christmas activities. Come on out and experience Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer working their musical magic (and perfecting their comedic craft) on such classics as “Big Bottom” and “Smell the Glove,” and watch for a multitude of cameos from the likes of Billy Crystal, Dana Carvey, Patrick Macnee, Paul Shaffer, Anjelica Huston, Fred Willard, and many more. Wish I could be there with you…
