The 5 Minutes Game: Dude Bro Edition + BBQ Kegger & Screening of Dude Bro Party Massacre III (w/ Greg Sestero from The Room in person!)

It’s one of our oldest Cinefamily traditions, having lasted since our very beginnings. And it’s been damned fun, too. For the first time ever, we’ve invited some guest-programmers (the Dude Bros), for a very special Dude Bro Edition. Summer’s still kickin’, and you know how we here at the theater love two things in tandem: busting out the patio grill, and The Five Minutes Game. What’s all this about a game, you ask? We’re firm believers in “Every movie is interesting for at least its first five minutes”, those fascinating moments when you’re still entering the new world a film presents you, and trying to figure out what the hell’s going on. What we’re gonna do is choose fifteen movies you’ve likely never seen before (with most of them still unavailable on DVD), line ‘em up and only show you the first five minutes of each, not counting their opening credits. After all that, you, the audience, votes on which film out of the fifteen we all then peep in its entirety. So bring something to cook on our grill and let’s get started!

5:00-6:30PM – The Five Minutes Game: Dude Bro Edition!
6:30-7:30PM – we tally the votes and have a BBQ (BYOM!) & Kegger on the patio!
7:30-9:00PM – Watch the winning Five Minutes Film!
9:00-9:30PM – More Kegger!
9:30PM – we watch Dude Bro Party Massacre III!

Break out the pastel polos, puka shells and beer bongs — it’s time for some pure, uncut bro on bro horror cinema. Thankfully recorded off of late night television before President Ronald Reagan could ban it, Dude Bro Party Massacre III is a satirical take on the gory and sexually charged ’80s slashers genre, refreshingly exploiting soft male bodies via many a situation we’ve become accustomed to as exclusively feminine.

In the wake of two back-to-back mass murders on Chico’s frat row, loner Brent Chirino must infiltrate the ranks of a popular fraternity to investigate his twin brother’s murder at the hands of the serial killer known as ‘Motherface.’ But fear not genre fiends, plot gleefully takes a backseat to absurdly dumb broalogue, hackneyed late night commercial interruptions, cameos galore and gore that gushes like a beer right before a proper shotgun.

Dir. Tomm Jacobsen, Michael Rousselet & Jon Salmon, 2015, DCP, 91 min.
