“Let’s talk about your reviews a little bit — this tasteless cover is a good indication of the lack of musical invention within. The musical growth rate of this band cannot even be charted. They are treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry.”…. “That’s…that’s just nitpicking, isn’t it?”
We’ll be turning it up to 11 as the spoof documentary (rockumentary) about a once-famous, now almost forgotten British heavy metal band returning to the United States after 17 years for a concert tour comes to Jampark. Rooftop cinema will be bringing you the best in cult moves in our very own pop-up cinema on the top floor of Jampark. Grab a bite or a beverage in Jampark’s diner Eatery Park before a screening in our open-air but fully heated and weather-friendly rooftop.
‘Spinal Tap’ does for sex, drugs & rock n’ roll what Sound of Music did for hills. A true cult classic, and frequently named as one of the funniest films ever made, This Is Spinal Tap is a fly-on-the-wall look at the world’s loudest heavy metal band, filmed by documentarian Marty DiBergi (real life director Rob Reiner). Opening with the band’s sold-out New York gig (venue capacity, 100) and ending with their riveting performance at a Santa Monica amusement park puppet gallery, This Is Spinal Tap combines interviews, backstage footage and live performances — including classic Tap tunes like “Big Bottom” and “Hell Hole” — in a film that is nothing short of phenomenal. Along the way you’ll get acquainted with core members David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest), Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) and every drummer who ever lived — and died — for this renowned rock band. Reiner’s first film, This Is Spinal Tap will live in history for future generations as the best rock ‘n’ roll spoof ever made.
