On Tuesday, May 26th, O Cinema Wynwood will pay tribute to the 90s cult-class Mallrats, the 1995 romantic comedy film written and directed by Kevin Smith.
Although Mallrats was not the overnight hit that Universal Studio’s was hoping for upon its’ 1995 release, it has since gained a loyal fan following, thanks in part to the popularity of its sequel, Clerks.
While movie theaters may not have been packed back in 1995, O Cinema in Wynwood is offering us all a chance to show this originally underappreciated comedy some movie-theater love. So rub your third nipple, throw on your best outfit from “Fashionable Male” and share your chocolate covered pretzels with someone you love.
As in the other View Askewniverse films, the characters Jay and Silent Bob feature prominently, and characters and events from other films are discussed. Several cast members, including Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, and Joey Lauren Adams, have gone on to work in several other Smith films. Comic book icon Stan Lee appeared, as did Brian O’Halloran, the star of Smith’s breakout feature Clerks.
The screening will be hosted by Marc Ferman of PopcornNights.com with giveaways by Diamond Select Toys.
