Ballina Fringe Festival presents Movies at the Mart – an evening of outdoor drive-in cinema with a Rob Reiner double!
The late show at 9pm on Saturday October 17 offers an opportunity to see cult music mockumentary classic ‘This is Spinal Tap on the big screen.
Marty DiBergi, a film-maker and a diehard fan of Spinal Tap, a British heavy metal band, makes a documentary of their American comeback tour that includes interviews with each band member.
The movie shines a light on the self-contained universe of a metal band struggling to get back on the charts, including everything from its complicated history of ups and downs, gold albums, name changes and undersold concert dates, along with the full host of requisite groupies, promoters, hangers-on and historians, sessions, release events and those special behind-the-scenes moments that keep it all real.
Screenplay: Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, Rob Reiner, Harry Shearer
