To all college students: welcome to Cinestudio and your excellent college adventure! (FYI: the staff and audience must social distance and wear masks) In the 3rd Bill & Ted movie, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are no longer young (and dim) wannabe rockers who get swept into the past to save the future. Now they are middle-aged dads who are given an impossible task: to write a song so great that it will prevent the universe’s destruction. Luckily they can still time travel to get tips from Louis Armstrong, Jimi Hendrix and other master musicians. The soundtrack includes Big Black Delta, Mastodon and Lamb of God, Weezer and more.
“I hope audiences take to heart the real message. It’s not just that one song saves the universe. It’s everyone learning to play together as one.” – director Dean Parisot.
