Rufio! Rufio! Ru-fi-ooo!
Bangarang! Alamo Drafthouse hooks Lost Boys for epic film screening
The late Robin Williams' many movies had a profound effect on our childhoods, but none so everlasting as his role as grown-up Peter Pan in Hook. This unique spin on the classic tale has continued to wow new generations since it came out in 1991 (yeah, we're that old).
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of such a resounding film, Alamo Drafthouse and the Long Center have teamed up for a special screening of Hook in early 2016, complete with a Q&A with former Lost Boys Dante Brasco (Rufio) and James Madio (Don't Ask).
"For those of us who grew up with the tale of Pan the Man's final battle against Captain Hook, it will always hold a special place in our hearts," said Henri Mazza, vice president of special events at Alamo Drafthouse, in a press release. "I'm incredibly excited for the opportunity to be in a theater full of fans all chanting out Rufio's name with Rufio himself in the audience!"
In addition to shouting "Rufio!" during this unique quote-along experience, audience members are also expected to get into the pirate-fighting spirit with inflatable sword props and learning how to fly with pixie dust (aka Pixy Stix candy). "It should be a great opportunity for all of us to remember the joys of never growing up," Mazza said.
The Hook 25th Anniversary Movie Party is scheduled for January 30 at the Long Center's Dell Hall. Tickets for this one-of-a-kind event will go on sale Friday, November 20 at noon.
