Event description

Description

NOTE THE SCHEDULE OF STUFF! The North Carolina Museum of History will remain open past its usual closing time of 5 pm, so come explore YOUR state's history and chat with Super Mario Bros. super fans and see film artifacts. Craft beer and concessions will be available. The SCREENING is at 7:00 pm; doors to the auditorium open at 6:30.

Join us in a celebration of the 25th anniversary of this made-in-NC classic, the first live-action film adapted from the goals, obstacles, and characters in a video game. In the film, brothers Mario (Bob Hoskins) and Luigi (John Leguizamo), two Brooklyn plumbers, work to rescue archaeologist Daisy (Samantha Mathis) from evil King Koopa (Dennis Hopper)—in a parallel dimension. Made at EUE/Screen Gems Studios in Wilmington, the film’s special effects were notably innovative for the time. Ryan Hoss from Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive and others will host a talkback after the film.
