Movie Under the Maltworks opens with Dazed and Confused
This summer the Victoria Film Festival brings back the hit four film series “Movie Under the Maltworks” which kicks off with the 90’s classic Dazed and Confused on May 27th at the Phillips Backyard.
Travel back in time to 1976 to celebrate the joys of beer blasts, pot smoking and a young Matthew McConaughey. On the last day of school before summer break, a rambunctious group of high school seniors celebrate the arrival of summer while hazing the incoming freshmen in this classic cult film.
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the film starts at 9 p.m. (light dependent). But before the film starts we want to hear your best “…alright, alright, alright,” in our ‘McConaughey Off’ competition. The best impression will win great prizes including a Vic Theatre gift pack, Phillip’s gift pack and more.
Guests are invited to bring their own chairs, although there will be a limited amount available for rent. Tickets are currently available for only $20 and include entry, 1 beer and a potted surprise. Tickets can be purchased online, at the festival office (1215 Blanshard Street) or from retail at Phillips Brewing and Malting (2010 Government Street). Rain or shine, this event is 19+, sorry high school girls.
