30th Anniversary

Party on, dudes! Be excellent to each other — and to yourselves — and join us for a 30th anniversary screening of BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE! With 2020's BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC on the horizon, it's time to take trip back to 1989 and beyond with one of the most bodacious comedies of 20th century. With only a few days left before their high school graduation, two most excellent dudes, Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) and Ted "Theodore" Logan (Keanu Reeves), are on the verge of flunking history. Unless they can ace their final history report, Ted's dad will pack him off to a military academy in Alaska, meaning their band, The Wyld Stallyns, will come to a heinous end. Luckily for these wanna-be rock stars, a guardian angel from the future, Rufus (George Carlin), comes to them with a solution: a time-traversing phone booth in which they travel back to the past and round up personages of historical significance to help them stage a most triumphant oral report. (Note adapted from Coolridge Corner Theater.) DIR Stephen Herek; SCR Chris Matheson, Ed Solomon; PROD Scott Kroopf, Michael S. Murphey, Joel Soisson. U.S., 1989, color, 90 min. RATED PG
