This is Spinal Tap

“It’s such a fine line between stupid and clever.” David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), and Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) are Spinal Tap, Britain’s loudest (if not brightest) heavy metal band. Hoping to make a comeback, the band tours the USA in support of their new album, Smell the Glove, documented by filmmaker Marty DiBergi (Rob Reiner). Bang your head to this classic mock-rock-doc on its 35th anniversary!

Turn it up to eleven with a cocktail from The Grog Grill, free with your ticket!
