Saturday, December 31st at 11:00 p.m.
Admission: $8.00 general; $6.00 Loft members
With a free raffle for fun prizes, New Year's party favors, light hors d'oeuvres, a '70s costume contest and a champagne toast!
Celebrate your New Year's Eve "Upside Down" with a crazy, interactive screening of the campiest, most beloved disaster flick in movie history, 1972's THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, a cinematic extravaganza which marks its 40th anniversary at 12:01 a.m., January 1st, 2012!
Passengers will be invited to "embark" at 11:00 p.m. and enjoy light pre-cruise hors d'oeuvres while listening to groovy '70s tunes and entering our free raffle for fabulous prizes. '70s polyester cruise attire is suggested, and a special prize will be awarded for the best '70s costume as determined by The Loft crew and your fellow passengers.
Then settle into your deck chair and enjoy a special big-screen showing of the one-and-only, waterlogged disaster cult classic THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE! This all-star, Oscar-winning (but still hilarious) 1972 classic, starring Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Shelly Winters and virtually every other actor from the 1970s, tells the "terrifying" tale of a tottering ocean liner, the S.S. Poseidon, which flips over one fateful New Year's Eve (right at the stoke of midnight, wouldn't you know it?), causing major problems for its panicky passengers, and extreme entertainment for those watching the movie!
The screening will be timed so that viewers AND the actors on screen will celebrate midnight at the EXACT SAME TIME (party hats and noisemakers will be provided), so the film will begin at roughly 11:40 p.m. (time is approximate).
Get set to get wet at the soggiest cinematic New Year's Eve party in town! Who will survive???
