Fans of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai are reveling in the 30th anniversary of the movie’s release. Everywhere it plays, it’s to sell-out houses, the very definition of a cult film.

Unknowns back in 1984, the main characters all went on to major celebrity: Ellen Barkin, Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, Christopher Lloyd and others. Billy Vera, aka Pinky Carruthers, scored a worldwide number one record with “At This Moment,” the song that brought together Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan in “Family Ties,” and he’s been awarded a star on Hollywood Blvd in recognition of his film and television success.

On November 13th, “Pinky” invades the Alamo to personally introduce a special showing of “Buckaroo,” with post-show Q&A, meet & greet, and autographs.

Billy Vera is a Westchester homeboy who looks forward to reconnecting with his local fans and a super-fun evening of Banzai madness!

We’re ramping up to light speed with the dimension-crossing chronicle of rock ‘n’ roll alien science gone berserk: BUCKAROO BANZAI!!! Witness the world’s leading surgeon/inventor/guitar-slinger battle soulless Lectroids from the 8th Dimension! His weapons are advanced, his wits are sharp, and his #1 pal is Jeff Goldblum in a gigantic, dumb cowboy hat! See the rhythm section of the Hong Kong Cavaliers team with the trans-reality researchers of YoyoDyne Industries to defeat the maniacal, possessed Dr. Emilio Lizardo (John Lithgow) and his reptilian henchmen (including Christopher Lloyd as “John Big-Booté”).

If you’ve seen it, you know what the hell I’m talking about…and if you haven’t, your curiosity MUST BE SATISFIED! Join us for the movie that transformed the summer of ’84 into a spastic, 70,000 MPH comic book triple-jammed with extraterrestrial, inter-dimensional threats and hilarious, impossible adventure! Hit the accelerator and blaze through space and time with BUCKAROO BANZAIIIIIIIII! (Zack Carlson)
