The 2018 Milwaukee Film Festival is imminent. From October 18 through November 1, MFF2018 will screen 305 films at multiple theaters, host oodles of events at multiple venues, and kick all kinds of ass. Also imminent: Milwaukee Record‘s annual Milwaukee Film Festival party. This year we’re putting away our bowling shoes and picking up our trusty axes for a night of—you guessed it—axe throwing! Behold: So You Signed Up For An Axe Murderer-Themed Party At AXE MKE, Thursday, October 25, at—you guessed it again—AXE MKE. Get your tickets now.
What do you get when you combine the 2018 Milwaukee Film Festival, the East Side’s hottest axe-throwing bar, and the city’s foremost authority on cheesy horror movies featuring axe murderers? Axes! Zombie targets! Horror movies! More surprises! Join Milwaukee Record at AXE MKE (1924 E. Kenilworth Pl.) Thursday, October 25, from 6-8:30 p.m., for a night of chills, thrills, and, well, axe-throwing. Did we mention the zombie targets? Oh, and feel free to dress up as your favorite horror movie character—just as long as that character doesn’t wear open-toed shoes, because open-toed shoes aren’t allowed at AXE MKE.
Also, the title of the event is a reference to the 1993 Mike Myers movie So I Married An Axe Murderer, in case you totally forgot that movie existed.
Wanna join us? Tickets are $10, which gets you some axe-throwing time and some beer. See you there! Ahhhhh!!!
