Sound Opinions at the Movies: Wayne's World

Wed, May 10th, 2017


In 1992, director Penelope Spheeris brought Wayne and Garth out of the basement and onto the big screen with WAYNE'S WORLD. The latest installment in the popular SOUND OPINIONS AT THE MOVIES series will pay tribute to Mike Myers and Dana Carvey’s earnest charm and totally excellent quotes to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the cult classic. Sound Opinions hosts and acclaimed music critics Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis will introduce the film.

Wayne is still living at home. He has a world class collection of name tags from jobs he's tried, but he does have his own public access TV show. A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.
