It’s payback time!
For all you moviegoers who have been subjected to cinematic disasters (Hello? Teen Wolf Too), the Heckler’s Ball is the perfect outlet for your revenge. According to the press release, “a blue-ribbon panel of expert hecklers”—which includes Robert Berry (of the Web site RetroCrush) and Mr. Lobo (host of Cinema Insomnia)—will lead the mocking. The movie on the chopping block? Louis Malle’s Viva María!, in which blonde bombshells Brigitte Bardot and Jeanne Moreau accidentally invent the striptease and repeatedly blow things up. The screening starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $5 and include popcorn. Oh, and the first 25 attendees will receive free purple nurples. Wait. Is that a good thing? Last time I checked, having my nipples grabbed and twisted was more painful than watching Jason Bateman’s werewolf transformation. On second thought, maybe it’s best to arrive late to HQ, located at 25th and R streets. Call (530) 848-9027 for more information.
