Yes. I will be mocking the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber. So will dozens of other people as we gather at the prestigious Oklahoma City Museum of Art. President Roy Williams and Chairman Carl Edwards, however, will be spared the cutting edge of the jokes in what will be the second presentation of the Movie Clubbed guys this Saturday at 8 p.m.
For those who didn’t attend the last Movie Clubbed (which filled up quick), read this post about how some local wits did their own take on Mystery Science 3000 with a screening of “Zardoz” earlier this year. This weekend’s one-night only Movie Clubbed will begin with the 1970s classic Oklahoma City propaganda film “Growing with Pride.” Then, well, it’s time for “Skatetown U.S.A.” Here’s the promo from the art museum:
For their second go-round of live movie mockery, the five members of The Movie Clubbed will take you to Dante’s little-known 10th circle of Hell: a destination called Skatetown, U.S.A. Released to an ill-prepared public in 1979, Skatetown, U.S.A. was sold as “The Rock and Roller Disco Movie of the Year,” because competition was just that fierce, America. It stars Scott Baio, Patrick Swayze, Flip Wilson, Ruth Buzzi, Billy Barty, Marcia from The Brady Bunch, one Landers sister, one dead Playboy Playmate, The Unknown Comic and much feathered hair. What’s it about? Well, see, there’s this disco wizard and he … well, we’re still trying to figure it out, and we’ve seen it more times than you have fingers. Ostensibly, it’s a comedy, although we have yet to find a joke. But rest assured, The Movie Clubbed will come prepared with their own. Skate ya later!
