WE HAVE JUST ADDED A 10:30 SCREENING WITH INTRODUCTION BY DAVID WAIN AND SCOTT TOBIAS! PURCHASE TICKETS BELOW!

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.

Ticket Pricing:
$10.00 in advance, $13 day of (if available), $2 service charge/advanced order
