Mike Judge's OFFICE SPACE came out 10 years ago this February, but it only took a few months to become a classic. There's just something so familiar hidden in every frame of the film, we don't exactly know whether to laugh or cry or both. And long before that luxury flophouse, AMERICAN BEAUTY, came out, it was OFFICE SPACE that ignited in us all that Joe Schmo fantasy of finally saying fuck it, I'm out. God, how sweet would that be?
Well, through praise and persistence, SXSW and Fantastic Fest are bringing to Austin the most fantastic, fax-smashic event in the history of cinema- the OFFICE SPACE 10 Year Anniversary Reunion! Join us at the historic Paramount Theater on February 8, where the mastermind himself, Mike Judge, will be there to preside over the night's festivies of film and fun.
Expect an deluge of cast and crew to nearly crush the foundation of the Paramount! More confirmations coming in every day- David Herman (Michael Bolten) just confirmed this morning! Check the Alamo Drafthouse Showpage for up-to-the-minute updates about this colossal celebration.
We expect tickets to go fast (we just saw that in Texas alone, 34,000 facebooker's have OFFICE SPACE listed as thier favorite film!), so mark your calendars...
2009 Fantastic Fest and SXSW badge holders get a two day head start. Starting Thursday, January 15, at noon, all 2009 badge-holders will have super-secret password access to purchase tickets at either the Paramount box office our through gettix.net.

This is a dream come true.
