TT Cinema: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Screening
August 27 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm£15
We’re getting stuck back into our TT Cinema programme in bodacious fashion at the end of the month, with a screening of the 1989 cult favourite comedy starring Keanu Reeves & Alex Winter – Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
The plot centres around two high school no-hopers in a small Californian town, San Dimas, who – following a series of increasingly wild and unlikely events – end up leaping in and out of history, meeting such past icons as Napoleon, Socrates and Billy the Kid along the way.
Initially, our two protagonists are in real danger of flunking history class and being sent to military school, thus breaking up their fledgling band. They’re rescued in the nick of time by Rufus (George Carlin), a resident of San Dimas 700 years in the future – a future in which their band Wyld Stallyns has brought about world peace, and the best water slides in the universe.
Goofy, endearing, and a white-knuckle ride from minute one to ninety-one, Bill & Ted has been a firm fan favourite ever since its release and is credited with kickstarting Keanu Reeve’s stellar Hollywood career.
Its success also spawned a (slightly less popular) sequel, with one more on the way, an animated series, a video game, and even a short-lived brand of cereal.
Come and join us in reliving our distant youth with a classic caper – complimentary cocktails from our expert bar team. and snacks courtesy of the guys at PROPERCORN included in the ticket price as standard.
Tickets are £15 for one, or £20 for a pair when you use the code ‘excellent’ at checkout.
