Enjoy some laughs with “Office Space” at the Cerrito on Thursday, March 14, at 7:00.
In a stroke of genius, writer-director Mike Judge (better known as the creator of “Beavis and Butthead”, “King of the Hill,” and “Silicon Valley”) created a hilarious satire of the corporate world—which resonates with anyone who has held a soul-crushing job.
Peter Gibbons (played by Ron Livingston) is a cubicle slave, imprisoned at a soulless software company, Initech, where the workers are either automatons or emotionally dysfunctional, including one who is stapler-obsessed. They’re presided over by an unctuous phony, played by Gary Cole, a symbol of everything that’s wrong with the corporate world.
Jennifer Aniston humorously plays a woman with whom Peter gets involved—who has a similarly soul-crushing job at the nearby chain restaurant.
Through a bizarre twist of fate, Peter undergoes a personality shift, leading to a revenge plot with his two work buddies.
Watch what happens!
“Office Space” plays once only on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00 p.m. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. All seats are $9.50. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
So many choices at Scene! There are flatbread pizzas, a charcuterie and cheese sampler, baked sandwiches, “bites,” salads, desserts, and much more. You can enjoy them there, or have them brought to your seat while you watch the movie. The atmospheric food/wine bar is a fun place to hang out, with special wines and beers available. Check it out!
