The Greg Proops Film Club! Pee-Wee

Greg Proops Film Club Screening. Part-caper, part-road movie, PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE follows a lovable weirdling (Paul Reubens) as he searches for the bicycle his bratty neighbor has stolen. Live podcast with comedian Greg Proops. The Greg Proops Film Club is overjoyed to make their official debut at the exalted picture palace the American Cinematheque. Program begins with a live podcast by comedian Greg Proops. 35 mm. PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE 1985, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Tim Burton The Eighties were precarious. If you weren’t careful you could be forced to feel sorry for the yuppie ratsticks in WALL STREET or find yourself actually rooting for egomaniacal Jerry Lewis to free himself in KING OF COMEDY. But the decade triumphantly launched PEE WEE’S BIG ADVENTURE, the movie that lionizes the 90lb weakling and propelled Tim Burton and Danny Elfman into the goth cinematic darkosphere.

Part-caper, part-road movie PEE WEE is an homage inside a tour-de-france with every kitsch genre mined to full potential. The story of a lovable weirdling (Paul Reubens) who lives alone with just his beloved bicycle. When the bike gets stolen Pee Dub rightly suspects his bratty neighbor Francis (Mark Holton), but Francis has paid a thug to ditch the bike and the chase is on all the way to the basement of the Alamo. Drunken bikers, a ghostly lady trucker and Godzilla all show up with madcap consequences. EIGHTIES WARNING: this movie contains James Brolin being ironically hilarious. No one will be seated during Twisted Sister. Podcast approximately 30 minutes. Feature begins at 8:00 PM

What exactly IS the Greg Proops film club? The Greg Proops Film Club is a popular podcast digging on vintage movies.

Everything from the ooky noir ofto the adrenaline-raged, surf-bromance POINT BREAK. Since the advent of Orange 45 and the devolvement of our fragile democracy, the Greg Proops Film Club has focused on women, race and politics with the trenchant comedy 9 TO 5, the biting and colorful DO THE RIGHT THING and the creeping paranoia of ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN. The Greg Proops Film Club is 30 minutes of free-form, rapid-fire comedy about fantastic films followed by a live screening of the picture at hand. With reverence towards film and disdain for Hollywood, the GPFC is a love letter to tangents with an avid child of the ’70s who grew up intoxicated onRedford’s wayward hair and Jeanne Moreau’s hypnotic eyes dancing you through the movie experience from the dastardly moguls to the price of Junior Mints.

GPFC is available on iTunes and SoundCloud. Greg has recorded at the TCM Film Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and for years in Hollywood. Greg hosted Ouch:The Slapstick Movie Festival movies on TCM as well as hosting a month of pirate movies. He also did the commentary for theLester films for Filmstruck. Mr. Proops also discusses his essential movies in The Smartest Book in the World, now in paperback. The films are largely selected by his wife,Canaga. WELCOME, GPFC.
