for the movies that need to be seen on the BIG screen!
Wednesday March 27th is HOCKEY NIGHT at the Geneva Theater! We are proud to present the comedy-cult-classic Slap Shot on the Big Screen to be accompanied by all kinds of fun stuff! There will be a raffle for a #17 Steve Hanson Chiefs jersey and a set of Chicago Blackhawks tickets for this season versus their rivals the St. Louis Blues! These hard to get items will be up for the taking that night only! The pre-party before the movie will have classic arena organ music and the Best of Hockey Fights will be shown on the big screen. We also encourage everyone to wear their favorite hockey jerseys to the show. The theater will have specials on Molson Canadian beer for us too EH!.
About the Film: In the small New England town of Charlestown, the local mill is about to lay off 10,000 workers. The town's minor league hockey team, the Charlestown Chiefs, is doing no better. After years of failure, this will be the team's last season. Exasperated player and coach Reggie Dunlop (Paul Newman) lets the club's recent acquisitions, the Hanson Brothers, play. The brothers' actively violent and thuggish style of play excites the fans. Dunlop retools the team, using violence to draw big crowds. This is one of the greatest sports comedies every made and has a major cult following among hockey fans for it's ridiculous nature.
