Join us for a special rooftop film screening in conjunction with our Ceramics at the Cinema event and the 19th Annual Ohio Brew Week celebration!

Screening of this film will take place atop the Athens City Parking Garage. Seating will begin at 8:00 p.m. and the film will begin around 9:00 p.m. (whenever it gets dark enough). In case of rain in the forecast, the event may be relocated to The Athena Cinema.

Ok, you hosers…time to set out for the Great White North!

Two of Canada’s finest comedians, Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, team up as beer-swilling brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie in this comedy classic from 1982. Hatching a plan to get a bunch of free Elsinore beer by putting a mouse in an empty beer bottle, the two buffoons get caught up in an even bigger scheme when they find their selves at the Elsinore brewery castle – the Brewmeister (Max von Sydow), in Bond-villain fashion, is trying to take over the world by putting a mind-control drug in the beer. Will the McKenzie’s unquenchable thirst ultimately end up saving us all..?

Written and directed by Moranis and Thomas, Strange Brew grew from humble beginnings as a sketch on SCTV, Canada’s version of Saturday Night Live. (Very) loosely based on Shakespeare’s classic tragedy Hamlet, this film is a bummer only if you hate to laugh out loud, eh.
