[ 1987 | Dir: Mel Brooks | PG | 96 min ]

May the Schwartz be with you! In this classic 1980s comedy, Mel Brooks lampoons sci-fi space sagas with the outrageous tale of a renegade team of heroes waging insterstellar warfare against an evil space commander.  In a far distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply, leaving its citizens reliant on an artificial product called "Perri-Air." In desperation, Spaceball's leader orders the evil Dark Helmet to kidnap Princess Vespa of the oxygen-rich planet Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air.  But help is soon on the way when the rogue space pilot Lone Starr and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf, set a course for rescue in their Winnebago spaceship. Along the way they confront the huge, gooey Pizza the Hutt, the sassy robot Dot Matrix, and a wise little creature named Yogurt, who teaches them the mystical power of the Schwartz in order to bring peace -- and merchandising rights -- to the entire galaxy.

Starring Mel Brooks, Rick Moranis, Daphne Zuniga, Bill Pullman, John Candy, Joan Rivers, Dick Van Patten, Jim J. Bullock, and Dom DeLuise.

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Maryland's current exhibit: Jews in Space: Members of the Tribe in Orbit.

Showing on the BIG screen at Gordon Outdoors, our new drive-in movie venue! Refreshments and snacks will be available for purchase. Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed.
