Beginning in March, the Charleston Music Hall will present a Christopher Guest Film Series featuring the classic "mockumentry" films This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind.
Christopher Guest is an American screenwriter, composer, musician, director, actor, and comedian who holds dual British and American citizenship. Guest is most widely known in Hollywood for having written, directed and starred in his series of comedy films shot in mock-documentary (mockumentary) style. Many scenes and character backgrounds in Guest’s films are written and directed, although actors have no rehearsal time and the ensemble improvise scenes while filming them.
All films are $8, but you can buy a 4-film pass for $20 or a 4-film pass with 4 specialty film posters for $30. All films start at 7:30. Learn more here.
