PIE EATING CONTEST BEFORE THE FILM!
(1986, d. Rob Reiner, 89 mins, R) We are all haunted by childhood's end, by the important things we must leave behind on our long and arduous journey into adulthood: the intensity of our loves, fears, and hurts; the talismanic rituals and games; the laughter and bravado; and the deep bonds of friendship. All these things and more are presented in STAND BY ME, one of the sweetest and most affecting films ever made about the darkness at the edge of town that must be faced before four young boys can move on to the new challenges that junior high school will bring them. Gordie (Wil Wheaton) and his friends Chris Chambers (River Phoenix), Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman), and Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell) have their own little tree house where they play cards, smoke cigarettes, and crack jokes. It is the end of the summer and they need a really great adventure. When Vern tells them that he heard his brother talking about seeing the dead body of a boy who's been missing for a few days down by the railroad tracks, they decide to locate the corpse and become heroes in the eyes of the townsfolk. (Frederick Brussat)
Wil Wheaton will do a 20min Q&A and sign books in the lobby after the film. Pre-order your copy online at www.drafthouse.com to guarantee a seat!
