Party On with Wayne and Garth for Special Two-Night Screening Events to Celebrate Wayne’s World’s 25th Anniversary
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the iconic comedy classic Wayne’s World, SpectiCast and Paramount Pictures are hosting an excellent, two-night theatrical events on February 7 and 8, 2017. Fans across the U.S. will have the chance to party on with Wayne and Garth when the film returns to more than 400 theaters.. The special events will include an exclusive introduction by Peter Travers (Rolling Stone Magazine and ABC-TV) and a videotaped chat with the director and cast members after the film. Wayne’s World was originally released on February 14, 1992.
Based on the “Saturday Night Live” sketch of the same name, Wayne's World is a wacky, irreverent pop-culture comedy about the adventures of two amiably aimless metal-head friends, Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey). From Wayne's basement, the pair broadcast a talk-show called "Wayne's World" on local public access television. Wayne’s World, directed by Penelope Spheeris, grossed $183 million in its theatrical run, placing it as the tenth highest-grossing film of 1992 and the highest-grossing of the 11 films based on “Saturday Night Live” skits. The movie features Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere, Lara Flynn Boyle, Brian Doyle-Murray, Robert Patrick, Chris Farley, Ed O’Neill, Ione Skye, Meat Loaf, and Alice Cooper.
Tickets for the February 7th and 8th events may be purchased at www.waynesworld25.com.
“Wayne’s World transcends generations to pay tribute to an indelible place in American pop culture,” says SpectiCast CEO Mark Rupp. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone Magazine adds, “Director Penelope Spheeris brings out the best in Mike Myers and Dana Carvey while converting a classic SNL sketch into an enduring, full bodied film for the ages.”
Paramount Home Media Distribution also will celebrate the anniversary with a Wayne’s World Double Feature on DVD and Digital HD, arriving February 14, 2017. Plus, Wayne’s World will be available on iTunes with new-to-digital extras, including a Director’s Commentary and Making-Of featurette.
