Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure


Friday, Nov. 6 at 9:45pm
Tivoli Theatre

Whoa, dude! Former St. Louisan Alex Winter co-stars with Keanu Reeves in this most excellent stoner comedy, part of our opening-weekend celebration of all things Winter. Bill and Ted, two wannabe rock stars whose bulbs don’t burn especially bright, struggle to avoid flunking a totally bogus exam by preparing a historical presentation with the help of a time machine and a strange man from the future named Rufus (the late, great George Carlin). The fate of all mankind hangs in the balance as the film’s nitwit heroes wander through time, meeting important historical figures and accidentally learning a few things along the way. The Austin Chronicle writes: “As these high school goofballs travel back in time to score some heavy dudes like Napoleon, Socrates, and Billy the Kid for their history presentation, they wrote themselves into the teen-movie pantheon.”
