What are you doing on Wednesday, March 30? Whatever your plans are, change them immediately and join Milwaukee Record at Avalon Theater for our screening of Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping. That’s right! We’re showing the 2016 music mockumentary, and since you probably didn’t catch it the first time it was in theaters, you won’t want to miss it on the silver screen this time around. Tickets to the 6:30 p.m. screening are ON SALE NOW.
If you’re unfamiliar with this box office flop-turned-beloved cult comedy, allow us to get you up to speed. Pop Star: Never Stop Never Stopping is basically The Lonely Island’s take on This Is Spinal Tap. The film stars Lonely Island’s own Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone as members of “The Style Boyz,” and traces the rise, fall, and exploits of that world-famous fictional pop group. The movie also features Tim Meadows, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, and Joan Cusack. And there’s a cavalcade of cameos from musicians like Mariah Carey, Michael Bolton, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Usher, Ringo Starr, Miley Cyrus, Seal, and many more.
As always, the screening is being sponsored by our friends at Lakefront Brewery (who will have its Bierzeit Kolsch-style beer on tap at the screening), Educators Credit Union, and Awkward Nerd Events. We repeat: Tickets to the 6:30 p.m. screening are ON SALE NOW. We’ll see you there!
