Wet Hot American Summer @ Avalon Theater

In 2015, we said goodbye to the summer with a late September screening of Wet Hot American Summer. The first-ever Milwaukee showing of the cult comedy classic sold out, people dressed up as characters from the film, laughs were had, and drinks were consumed. It was great. Fresh off the release of the Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later Netflix series and with summer fading fast, we figured what the fuck, let’s do it again.

Join us at Avalon Theater on Thursday, August 24 to watch the incomparably funny film that so many fell in love with long after its bewilderingly brief theatrical run. Even if you’ve seen Gene hump a refrigerator or watched McKinley and Ben make out dozens of times before, it’s doubtful you witnessed those moments on the big screen. Though you might know Alan Shemper’s comedy routine by heart and can time the sound of breaking clay pots down to the nanosecond, both are even sweeter in surround sound. Have you ever experienced Andy laboriously picking up his dishes while you were sitting in the company of 212 others? Probably not.

If you want to see Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Elizabeth Banks, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, a vegetable can-voicing H. Jon Benjamin, and so many more in some of their most memorable roles, come to the Avalon on August 24. Why don’t we say 9:30, and then make it your beeswax to be there at 9:30? We just don’t see any reason why we can’t be places on time.

Tickets for this special Milwaukee Record screening of an unforgettable cinematic summer standard are just $6. We’ve said it before, but this showing might be your last chance to see Wet Hot American Summer in a movie theater, so act fast before tickets run out.
