Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
June 20 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
“Be excellent to each other” is the message of this small film that became a franchise.
Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are high school buddies starting a band. However, they are about to fail their history class, which means Ted will be sent to military school. They receive help from Rufus (George Carlin), a traveler from a future where their band is the foundation for a perfect society. With the use of Rufus’ time machine, Bill and Ted travel to various points in history, returning with important figures to help them complete their final history presentation
Released in 1989, the film was directed by Stephen Herek and written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Bill & Ted Became a part of our culture as well as introducing Keanu Reeves to a large audience.
The initial cut of the film was 2 hours and 25 minutes long, and almost one hour was cut including a lengthy choreographed song number that would have opened the film, starting with Bill & Ted air-guitaring on their way to school and getting bullied by jocks once they arrived. Winter said that famous Kenny Ortega had been involved in establishing the choreography.
“Party on, dudes.”
