Wayne’s World Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

Wayne's WorldAnyone old enough to remember the movie Wayne’s World in high school or college is about to feel really old.

The iconic comedy classic is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a most-excellent two-night, theatrical event on February 7 and 8, 2017 at select theaters nationwide, including several in the Twin Cities.

Originally released on February 14, 1992, the film is based on the “Saturday Night Live” sketch of the same name. It is a wacky, irreverent pop-culture comedy about the adventures of two amiably aimless metal-head friends, Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) who broadcast a talk-show from Wayne’s basement on local public access television.

The movie grossed $183 million in its theatrical run, placing it as the tenth highest-grossing film of 1992 and the highest-grossing of the 11 films based on “Saturday Night Live” skits. The movie features Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere, Lara Flynn Boyle, Brian Doyle-Murray, Robert Patrick, Chris Farley, Ed O’Neill, Ione Skye, Meat Loaf, and Alice Cooper.

If you can’t make it to the theater, or you love the movie so much you want more of it, Paramount Home Media Distribution also will celebrate the anniversary with a Wayne’s World Double Feature on DVD and Digital HD, arriving February 14, 2017.  Plus, Wayne’s World will be available on iTunes with new-to-digital extras, including a Director’s Commentary and Making-Of featurette.
