B Movie Bingo presents BULLETPROOF

Admission: $5.00

B-MOVIE BINGO is a game that is exactly like it sounds — OR MORE. It’s simple–we play bingo to the most awesome movie cliches ever committed to celluloid, like: “LONG BORING SCENE OR MALE PONY TALE”, “TEAMED UP WITH ROOKIE OR ANIMAL”, and “WHITE SUIT OR TROPICAL ENDING”. For maybe the first time in a theatre, see the relatives and employees of A-list actors you know and love like Sylvester Stallone, whose brother bears a remarkable resemblance to him. Compete for prizes! Yell at your fellow movie nerds over the elusive and mysterious “BLANK SQUARE”! Relax: it’s B-MOVIE BINGO.

Imagine this: It’s the mid 1980s. Cold War paranoia is at its breaking point; secrets wait to be discovered under every rock. While the western world sleeps in its cocoon of false security, the scales tip to the Dark Side when a secret super-tank, the NBT-90 Thunderblast, is stolen from the US military and taken to …Mexico. There a grab-bag of assorted Soviet-inspired international terrorists await its arrival and their virtually unstoppable ascent to world domination. But wait: Enter Frank “BULLETPROOF” McBain!

Gary Busey stars as Frank “I’M YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE, BUTTHORN!” McBain, an ex-military virtuoso who has “retired” into police work. His main skill is getting shot and removing the bullets, keeping them in a jar in his bathroom. The rest of skills can be added up into one large, more complex, intangible web of skills, called a Hive Skill. This Hive Skill is his use of the word BUTTHORN as an insult, which happens at least three times in the film. Note: this is the only movie that has the word BUTTHORN in it. When Uncle Sam calls McBain back for one last mission, he teams up with his ex-girlfriend, Army officer Devon Shepard, to get the tank back from the evil tantrum-thrower Colonel Kartiff (Henry Silva!!) and …play saxophone on the beach! Because it’s true that while McBain may be bulletproof, he’s not love proof. Directed by Steve Carver.
