      CULT CLASSIC SCREENING! - The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension!

      *** NOTE - Online ticket sales end at 5:00 pm on Thursday, but we still have plenty of tickets remaining and do not expect a sellout. It's an incredibly rare theatrical screening of the 1984 sci-fi action comedy classic, THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI ACROSS THE 8th DIMENSION! You have never seen a movie like this!  This wildly creative and purposefully ridiculous story bombed at the box office, but like many classic movies of the 1980s it became an enormous hit when released on VHS at video stores. Over the past decade, it has developed a huge following with books, video games and comics growing its huge fan-base. It hasn't been seen in a movie theater in over 20 years, so don't miss it! MOVIE TICKETS: Tickets are only $3.00.  Buy them at the Eventbrite link and also at the main bar of our 675 Merrimon Avenue location.   There is a limit of purchasing 6 online tickets per order because people often buy more tickets than actually use thus preventing others from getting to see the movie. MOVIE SYNOPSIS: Adventurer, brain surgeon, rock musician Buckaroo Banzai and his crime-fighting team, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, must stop evil alien invaders from the eighth dimension who are planning to conquer Earth. CONTENT GUIDELINE:  Rated PG-13 for action and mild adult language. Watch this fantastic film in Asheville's original dine-in theater. There are tables in front of our big, cushy theater seats. Order dinner from our huge diverse menu (vegan options!), and enjoy this rare cinematic experience with 140+ other fans of this film. Also, enjoy a huge selection some of the best local beer from the third oldest brewery in WNC! FAQs What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking in front of the building, on each side, and also in a big parking lot behind the building. All parking is free. Asheville Pizza & Brewing on Merrimon Avenue is very easy to find. Only five minutes from I-26, I-240 and Downtown. Should I arrive early? ABSOLUTELY!!!  We strongly suggest you arrive at least 30 minutes early so you can order and get settled into your seat before the movie starts. Can I order food and beverages inside the theater? Yes!  You can order anything from the diverse menu of Asheville Pizza & Brewing and drink any of Asheville Brewing Company's delicious beers!  The menu has pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, vegan options and more!  The full menu can be found on our website.   Is there any pre-show entertainment? Doors usually open one hour prior to the showtime with a pre-show collection of unique and funny videos playing before the movie begins. Regulars to our theater always arrive extra early to enjoy our pre-show which changes with each movie. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email us at if you have any questions. Please do not call our location as the staff who answers will likely not be able to know the answer.  Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? It isn't necessary.  After you purchase your ticket we will have your name on a list when you arrive, so we really only need the name the tickets were purchased with.  You can also show us the email purchase confirmation on your phone, but you can bring in a printed ticket if you prefer.  Please check in at the ticket counter at least 20 minutes before showtime to find a good seat. We expect a sellout.  Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends? Yes, just make sure they check in with whatever name the tickets were purchased under.
