Twenty years ago, Mario and Luigi starred in a pretty dismal Hollywood movie which almost ruined the career of Harold Ramis and still annoys star Bob Hoskins even today.
However, there are still plenty of people who grew up loving the film — in the same way you come to love a tatty old teddy from your childhood, we guess — and those very same individuals will no doubt be overjoyed to learn that this cult movie is getting a 20th anniversary screening later this month.
Here's the word from the event's Facebook page:
The time has come! As the 20th anniversary of Super Mario Bros. draws near, we are pleased to announce a special screening that will be held at the NuArt Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, May 24th at midnight!
Screenwriter Parker Bennett and production designer David L. Snyder will be sitting on a Q & A panel, answering questions from fans.
We will also have a few other anniversary surprises, so be sure to join us in the festivities!
