JUST ADDED 10:30 SCREENING INTRODUCED BY DAVID WAIN!*
Director/co-writer DAVID WAIN joins A.V. Club critic Scott Tobias for this special 10th anniversary screening! Inspired by the A.V. Club column, The New Cult Canon series celebrates the next generation of cult movies and the obsessive weirdoes who love them.
PLEASE NOTE: THE OCTOBER 5TH, 7:30 SCREENING IS SOLD OUT!
Based on the ongoing column in THE ONION’s AV CLUB “The New Cult Canon” takes a fresh look at the new generation of cult movies that have sprung up in the last two decades. As long as Scott Tobias is able, he hope to inspire the many cult movie fans who visit The A.V. Club to follow him through the wonderfully (and on occasion dubiously) idiosyncratic films that have cropped up over the last two decades.
In honor of its 10th anniversary, co-writer/director David Wain will join A.V. Club critic Scott Tobias for a special screening of Wet Hot American Summer, a brilliant absurdist riff on the camp—as in summer camp—comedies of his youth. Around a core of performers from Wain’s sketch troupe The State, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks and many others form one of the decade’s great comedic ensembles.
