May 12, 2014. Bangor, Me: KAHBANG Film has announced the introduction of KAHBANG Film Interactive, an audience participation based screening modeled after the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” interactive showings. The inaugural event will screen the movie “Wet Hot American Summer” and takes place Saturday August 9th at the Brick Church in Bangor from 11 pm to 1 am as part of the KAHBANG Film Fest. Any KAHBANG Festival Platinum, Gold, or Film Pass holders will be honored at the door. Film Passes for the entire Film Festival may be purchased at www.kahbang.com/tickets or individual tickets will be on sale at the event for $5.00.

“We picked “Wet Hot American Summer” because it’s a cult classic movie set in Maine, that people love and we can have a lot of fun with it. Since CNN Travel called us one of the weirdest film festivals in the country, we really decided to embrace that title and offer a unique viewing experience for the audience as part of the Film Festival; and that is how KAHBANG Film Interactive started. To participate, people are encouraged to dress up for the costume contest as their favorite camper or counselor from the movie to win a prize. We also will provide the audience with different props to use during the film and have leaders in the audience that will let the crowd know when to use the props. Shouting at the screen during the movie is also highly encouraged. It’s going to be a great time.”

-Meg Shorette, KAHBANG Film Executive Director

KAHBANG Film Interactive: “Wet Hot American Summer” encourages people to dress up as their favorite camper or camp counselor from the movie and participate in a costume contest before the screening. There will be various prizes given out to participants including cash and cans of mixed vegetables. Event organizers will provide props to the audience to enhance viewer experience and lead the crowd in using the props. Concessions will be available during the screening for purchase. Open to all ages, this screening will be part of the 2014 KAHBANG Film Festival, which includes other mainstream and indie film screenings, during the August 7-10th event.
