As you may know, Nitehawk Cinema, the best (in my opinion) movie theater in NYC, loves to pair the movies they’re showing with delicious, thoughtful and eclectic dishes to match. Building on that, they also have what they call FILM FEASTS, where they create an entire menu for one movie (food AND drink). It’s usually a classic, like Pulp Fiction, Christmas Vacation, and Big Lebowski. Or it’s one that is relevant to the now, like the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer screening which is sold out (the prequel show on Netflix is out July 17).
And what does this have to do with Governor’s Ball Music Festival (next weekend), you ask?!
This Tuesday, June 2nd, before Weird Al Yankovic himself takes the stage on Randall’s Island on Sunday June 7th, Nitehawk is teaming up with the Gov Ball team to show his wacky, absurd Wayne’s World-one-upping cult classic UHF (1989). It’s the only movie Weird Al’s ever made, and it features Fran Drescher, Michael Richards, and Kevin McCarthy, among others.
