Academy Stages 'Wayne's World' Reunion With Mike Myers, Dana Carvey
Hawk Koch, who was an executive producer on the film, will introduce a panel discussion and screening in April.
Mike Myers will join his former co-star Dana Carvey, producer Lorne Michaels and director Penelope Spheeris for a panel discussion and screening of Wayne's World hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Academy president and Wayne's World executive producer Hawk Koch will introduce the event on Tuesday, April 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy's Samuel Golden Theater in Beverly Hills.
The comedy originated from Myers' and Carvey's Saturday Night Live sketch about wacky teenagers Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, who hosted a public access talk show about their love for hard rock bands and girls from Wayne's basement in Aurora, Ill. In Myers' 1992 film debut, the friends try to save their show from the hands of a network executive with big-budget plans to change its image. It earned more than $180 million worldwide.
Wayne's World left an imprint on pop culture with its catch phrases such as "Schwing" and "Party On!" The soundtrack also helped Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" song reach No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart more than 15 years after its original release. The new print will be screened courtesy of the Academy Film Archive and Paramount.
The screening is open to the general public. Tickets can be purchased starting April 1 in person at the Academy box office, by mail or online at oscars.org.
