Milwaukee Record presents ‘Hot Rod’ @ Avalon Theater

Milwaukee Record presents 'Hot Rod' @ Avalon Theater

Join Milwaukee Record at Avalon Theater on Wednesday, June 20 for a special presentation of Hot Rod. The 2007 comedy stars Andy Samberg as aspiring stuntman Rod Kimble. When his stepfather falls ill, Rod and his crew of characters—including the likes of Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Isla Fisher, and Jorma Taccone—must go to extreme measures to raise enough money for an operation. Hilarity and injury both ensue.

Though the film grossed less than $15M in box office earnings (well below its $25.3M budget), the goofy and all-around absurd movie has built a respectable cult following in the decade since its brief theatrical run. If you’ve made it this far, you’re either part of that following or you’re interested in seeing what you missed 11 years ago.

Tickets to the 7 p.m. screening are $5. Our friends at Lakefront Brewery have also joined forces with us for a $10 “I Like To Party” package that comes with a movie ticket, a Riverwest Stein tallboy, and a Milwaukee Record pint glass. There’s a limit of 48 “I Like To Party” packs, so act fast. Lakefront’s new Eazy Teazy will also be on special all night long. If there’s a better way to start your summer than seeing Hot Rod in an air-conditioned movie theater, we aren’t aware of it. So it’s settled, we’ll see you at Avalon Theater on June 20. Cool beans? Cool beans.
