It’s hard to think about the 80s without seeing Lloyd Dobler holding that boombox above his head, blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” outside of Diane Court’s window. On June 14, John Cusack is coming to Houston for a live screening of Say Anything, and HOTC readers can get a discount of 30% off on tickets to this event. Bring a date or your fellow favorite hopeless romantic out for a fun movie night and lively discussion with the film’s start!
An Evening with John Cusack will give fans the opportunity to engage in conversation with the lead actor in several amazing films, including High Fidelity, Grosse Pointe Blank, Being John Malkovich, and of course, Say Anything. It was nearly impossible not to fall in love with the incredibly positive Lloyd Dobler in this timeless tale of boy loves girl, girl loves boy, but dad’s not so happy about it.
After watching what famous film critic Roger Ebert called “one of the best films of the year” when it was released in 1989, Mr. Cusack will participate in a live, moderated discussion. He’ll also take questions from the audience.
If you love movies – especially the great teen romances of the 80s – don’t miss this opportunity to see and discuss what Entertainment Weekly named one of the greatest modern movie romances of all time. Just think twice before trying to sneak your boom box into the theater!
Tickets start at $45.25, but HOTC readers can get them for only $30 with a free Goldstar.com account. Sign up with your email or Facebook account, and starting finding discounts on tickets to your next Houston event!
