Strange Brew

Special Screening for Skagit Beer Week

Saturday, Mar 30, 7:30 pm

What matters most in life, eh? BEER! The Lincoln Theatre welcomes you to celebrate the end of SKAGIT BEER WEEK with a screening of the 1983 cult classic farce Strange Brew. Bring in your tickets from Farm to Pint Fest and receive $2 off our regular film prices!

Purporting to be loosely based on HamletStrange Brew is about an evil braumeister at the Elsinore Brewery who has discovered an additive that when guzzled in beer, allows the drinkers to be easily controlled. Braumeister Smith has a plan to take over the world with his new brew, and only the Great White hosers of the North, Bob and Doug McKenzie -- with their plaid shirts, ski toques, fur-lined parkas, and addiction to beer -- can stop the dastardly plan, sober or not. There are several jabs at "hoseheads" and the business of movie-making, including an epilogue that critiques the film itself.

Directors: Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis

Cast: Dave Thomas, Rick Moranis, Max von Sydow, Paul Dooley and Lynne Griffin
