RTPV Movie/Pizza Night
The Producers is one of the funniest, satirical comedies ever made!!! It was written and directed by Mel Brooks and stars Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn, and Kenneth Mars. The film was Brooks’s directorial debut, and he won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Decades later, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry and placed eleventh on the AFI’s 100 Years…100 Laughs list.
The film centers around down and out producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel), who was once the toast of Broadway. Max’s new accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder), offhandedly muses that if Max found investors for a new production that turned into a flop, he could legally keep all the extra money. The duo begins to put together the worst play possible, titled “Springtime for Hitler”, with a terrible director and a hippie-freak star.
Drinks, snacks and popcorn will also be served!!
