National Lampoon's ANIMAL HOUSE has the reputation for setting the bar for both party hard fraternities and movies about partying hard.  Set in 1962, on the campus of Faber College in Faber, PA., the film focuses on the antics of the imaginatively mischievous Delta fraternity as they battle rejection from the institutionalized and rigid social order imposed by a repressive Dean and overachieving rival fraternity.

When Dean Wormer decides that Faber College is no place for the unsophisticated antics of the Deltas, he enlists the services of the militant like Omegas to drum up violations that would expel the Deltas for good. The stage is set for a comical showdown, which ends up with some of the most memorable comedic moments in movie history.

Directed by John Landis and starring John Belushi, Tom Hulce and John Vernon as Dean Wormer, ANIMAL HOUSE is a classic crowd pleaser.

But what I really want to talk about is how we’re partnering with the “Pedaling 4 Parkinsons” charity on the 28th to benefit research into Parkinson’s disease, and how Michael J. Fox has agreed to tape an introduction for us to precede it.

2015 is shaping up to be a triumphal parade of my own childhood.  Unearthing milestones like my junior-high screening of Road Warrior, my family visit as a tiny kid to Disneyland, the comics I stayed up reading with a flashlight under the covers long after lights out, the first movie I ever saw in a theater: Star Wars.
