Bombs Away Show, the podcast that “celebrates” the Best of the Worst in cinema, is headed for another slam-dunk screening with the infamous 90s blockbuster, Space Jam!

When alien tycoon Mr. Swackhammer (voiced by Danny Devito) wants a new attraction for his theme-park, he sends his gang of Nerdlucks to Earth to kidnap and enslave the famous Looney Tunes gang. When Bugs Bunny confidently challenges the puny minions to a basketball game to determine their fate, the Nerdlucks steal the b-ball skills of the NBA and leave the Tunes outmatched. Needing some star-power of their own, Bugs recruits Michael Jordan to help them win the game and their freedom.

After the film, B-movie comedy podcast Bombs Away will be on hand to take the stage to discuss the film with you, the audience.

Tickets are $15 and include both the film and the post-screening podcast show!

Special Event. Frida Cinema comp passes and Member Ticket Discounts not accepted.
