SF Sketchfest and Alamo Drafthouse Present: 'Hook' 25th Anniversary Screening with Dante Basco and James Madio (The Lost Boys' Rufio and Don't Ask), hosted by Henri Mazza
Hard to believe, but it's been 25 years since we were first introduced to Steven Spielberg's grown-up Peter Pan (the wonderful Robin Williams), his trusty sidekick Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts), and a look at the world of Never Never Land in a way we'd never seen it before, complete with the nefarious Captain Hook (the dazzlingly- tressed Dustin Hoffman) and a very unique group of Lost Boys.

Join SF Sketchfest in celebrating the 25th Anniversary of "Hook" with special "Lost Boy" guests Dante Basco (Rufio) and James Madio (Don't Ask) for a Q&A hosted by Alamo Drafthouse's Henri Mazza, and participate in our interactive viewing party with props we'll provide you when you arrive. Costumes encouraged! Bring the kids! $20 All Ages
