It’s going to be tough to top last night’s sold-out screening of UHF we hosted at Avalon Theater, but dammit if we won’t try. With school ending and the film’s 20th anniversary a few weeks away, we figured it was time to bring Can’t Hardly Wait back to the big screen. Yes, Milwaukee Record is showing the 1998 high school rom-com at Avalon Theater next month.
Join us at the Bay View theater on Wednesday, May 16 to see Preston Meyers (Ethan Embry) try to win the favor of Amanda Beckett (Jennifer Love Hewitt) at the graduation party of the century. This underrated comedy—which grossed more than $25M during its theatrical run, compared to just a $10M budget—also features Seth Green and Peter Facinelli, along with cameos from Donald Faison, Jason Segal, Jerry O’Connell, Jamie Pressly, Melissa Joan Hart, Jenna Elfman, Selma Blair, and countless other ’90s notables.
If you missed it the first time around or you want to see it again, it’s safe to say this is your one chance to watch Can’t Hardly Wait in theaters. Does it hold up? We’ll find out together! Tickets to the 7 p.m. showing are $5. See you there!
