This Is Spinal Tap
Turn it up to 11 with England's loudest heavy metal band and follow them as they embark on their latest American tour. Though a fictional account directed by Rob Reiner, numerous rock-and-roll bands have remarked at how close-to-home the film hits in its depiction of life on the touring circuit. Beset with drummer curses, album cover controversy, labyrinthine backstage areas, and unfortunate miscalculations with stage props, Spinal Tap bumbles its way through one headache after another. Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, and Michael McKean smartly play the half-witted band members with an improvised style that they would continue to employ in later films such as Waiting for Guffman and Best In Show. Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6F0VyKp4Ik Doors open at 6:45pm, show starts at 7:45pm. Tickets are $10, and can be pre-ordered once the film is up on the ACDH website (http://acdh.arlingtondrafthouse.com/).
