About

“A delightful comedy and one of the most charming movies in a long time.” – Roger Ebert

We will have a special and unique video introduction by the film’s director, Joe Dante.

FILM SYNOPSIS

In October 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis occurs and the menace of nuclear war looms over the American South. Low-budget filmmaker Lawrence Woolsey (John Goodman) is in Key West, Fla., debuting his new film “Mant!” and thinks the prevailing mood of fear surrounding the premiere is perfect to stir up some excitement. A group of local teenagers (Simon Fenton, Lisa Jakub, Kellie Martin) prepare for the film’s opening night, experiencing small crises of their own.
