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
