FLASH BACK WITH PLAYBACKTHETAPE'S TEEN-BEAT VHS ROMANCE: "'80S HEARTTHROB FACEOFF"
Don't you wish sometimes you could go back in time? Your friendly neighborhood VHS archaeologists, PLAYBACKTHETAPE, offer just that with the presentation of two rarely-broadcast made-for-television teen comedies, starring VHS Valentine's crushes from 30 years back... "'80S HEARTTHROB FACEOFF" visits Suns Cinema (3107 Mt. Pleasant St. NW, Washington, DC) on Thursday, February 16th, 2017 at 7:00pm with a double dose of teen-beat VHS retro romance. Watch Sean Astin and Michael J. Fox battle head-to-head for the title of cutest retro Valentine, with a double-feature of summer camp romance in "Poison Ivy" (1985) and sidewalk-surfin' military corruption in "The B.R.A.T. Patrol" (1986). Watch for early performances by Nia Long, Mackenzie Astin, Nancy McKeon, and more, along with (as always) vintage television commercials intact from the home-recorded original broadcast. An added bonus: both presentations will be preceded by an original written introduction from the movies' respective screenwriters: Bennett Tramer (of “Saved By the Bell” fame) and Chris Carter (creator of “The X-Files”)!
