In news deserving of five buckets of popcorn and a couple of sodas, Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington are bringing On Cinema At The Cinema to a handful of cities—maybe even a few near you. Following last year’s successful run of tour dates, On Cinema At The Cinema Live will continue in 2019 with dates in Texas and throughout the Midwest and Southeast, according to an official press release from Adult Swim. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 18, on Tim Heidecker’s official events page (much to Gregg’s chagrin, I’m sure).
The live tour is described as a “multi-media stage show” featuring guests from the On Cinema and Decker universe, along with Heidecker and Turkington’s “famed movie expertise and exuberant feuds.” No word yet on whether fans can expect a surprise performance from Dekkar. “We are thrilled to bring this truly remarkable show to the Midwest and other regions of this great country,” Heidecker says in an official press release. “Portions of this show constitute some of the most memorable moments of my entire life, while other segments are moments you may want to use the restrooms.”
On Cinema At The Cinema is also preparing for its sixth annual live On Cinema Oscar Special, which will air on February 24 (the same night as the actual Oscars, of course). As described by Turkington, the Oscar special is “the only place to find live, up-to-the-minute movie expertise and information, as well as tributes and interviews with the biggest names in Hollywood cinema history.” Fans can watch the live stream from the comfort of their own homes by visiting the official On Cinema Adult Swim website.
