The Capitol Theater of Greeneville, Tennessee wishes to take you back in time this Summer. All the way back to 1996 with a showing the ‘90s blockbuster SPACE JAM.
A huge hit upon its release in November 1996, SPACE JAM is about an evil alien theme park owner who is looking for a new attraction. The owner makes a plan to kidnap Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes gang. Bugs challenges them to a basketball game to determine their fate, recruiting NBA legend Michael Jordan for the team. SPACE JAM will be shown August 31, 2017 at 7:00 PM. Admission will be $5.00.
For one night only The Capitol will transform into a portal back into the 1990s. Not only will SPACE JAM be shown that evening, but attendees can enter to win a vintage Sega Genesis video game system with selected games. This 90s game system giveaway is sponsored by Playmore Games of Greeneville. Playmore is the prominent locally own and operated video game store in Greeneville. Playmore offers a wide selection of games and movies, for sell or trade, with systems covering all generations from the late 1970s to today.
SPACE JAM will be introduced by local Film Writer Andy Ross: “Though it may seem like a odd pick, SPACE JAM should be one of our more fun screenings” Ross says. “I’m so thankful to be with The Capitol Theater for this event, and their wonderful prize sponsor Playmore Games. This should be an event that every ‘90s kid will want to attend.” Though on August 31st it will be 2017 outside, inside The Capitol it will be 1996. Believe you can fly, and come enjoy SPACE JAM only at The Capitol Theater!
