Fans of the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer will remember the season six episode “Once More With Feeling” as the musical episode. And what’s the best way to watch a musical? In a theatre full of people singing along of course! Montreal’s “Psychotronic Film Centre” Blue Sunshine agrees, and are hosting a special screening of the episode this Thursday, April 21 at 8:30 p.m.
More about The Buffy Sing-Along from the Blue Sunshine website:
“Is Once More With Feeling the greatest hour of television of all time? In a word: yes. In two words: hell yeah. And in nine words: how could you even ask such a ridiculous question? Sure, HBO’s got all those shows that get the critics talking and help to teach us all new curse words, but the musical episode of Buffy is the only piece of episodic television we’ve seen that holds up to repeat viewing after repeat viewing after repeat viewing. The only thing that could possibly make this hour of TV any greater than it already is would be watching it in a movie theatre surrounded by a large group of singing, shouting, laughing and lighter-waving fans. So that’s what we’re going to do, and we’ll do it in style, with lighters and bubbles and plastic fangs and dancing bunnies.” (Henri Mazza, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema)
