Wayne's World returning to theaters for 25th anniversary
Based on the Saturday Night Live sketches starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, Wayne’s World premiered in February of 1992. So, this Feb. 7-8, select theaters will play host to two of cinema’s favorite slackers. The screenings will be followed by a pre-recorded roundtable discussion with Wayne’s World director Penelope Spheeris, Rolling Stone film critic Peter Travers, and select cast members.
The Wayne’s World website for its “25th birthday bash” features a list of participating locations across America.
Pitchfork also reports that Paramount Home Media Distribution will put out a Wayne’s World double feature on DVD and Digital HD, starting Feb. 14 (the film’s actual 25th anniversary). The iTunes edition is said to include new extras, like director’s commentary and a making-of featurette.
Elsewhere, Aurora, Illinois — where the rock-loving Wayne and Garth hosted their local public-access show — will feature a string of events celebrating the film’s anniversary, according to The Chicago Tribune.
