About This MovieMore

Well nuts! The all-ages show of Spaceballs didn’t reach the tipping point in time. Unfortunately, it won’t be showing. We’ll get ’em next time!

The vote was REALLY close this time (reeeeeealy close!), but Mel Brooks won out in the end.  On the heels of two Star Wars releases in the past 6 months, you chose Spaceballs to screen at the Egyptian Theatre on July 11 & 12 at 7:00PM.

Now listen up: there are two showings of Spaceballs. This page is the All Ages show on July 11. If you’re looking for some suds with your popcorn, head to the 21+ show on July 12.

As soon as 150 folks pick up tickets, the show is on! We’ll all be surrounded by A$$holes at the Egyptian!

We’ll have a costume contest with prizes, so come as your favorite Spaceballs and compare your Schwartz with the likes of Dark Helmet, Lone Star, Barf, and Princess Vespa.

If you’ve been to other Mel Brooks movies that we’ve shown, you’ll know how fun they are in a good crowd! Don’t miss out.

Here’s the skinny:

The planet Spaceball, home planet of the evil Spaceballs is running out of air and the planet’s ruler President Skroob has devised a evil scheme, where he plans to steal the air from the atmosphere of the peaceful planet Druidia. But Druidia is surrounded by a defense shield to prevent the Spaceballs from stealing the air. When Druidia’s ruler King Roland’s beautiful daughter Princess Vespa and her loyal droid Dot Matrix flees from Druidia during her wedding to Prince Valium, The evil commander of the Spaceball fleet, Dark Helmet captures Princess Vespa so King Roland will be forced to give them the access code to the defense shield. But heroic space pilot Lone Starr and his sidekick, Barf (A Mog half man-half Dog) comes to Princess Vespa’s rescue. With help from wise and powerful master of the magic ring “The Schwartz” Yogurt, Lone Starr, Barf, Dot and Princess Vespa set out to save Druida and foil Dark Helmet and President Scroob’s scheme and prevent them from stealing the air from Druidia. From IMDB
