Tenacious D: Post-Apocalypto (In Person with Q&A!)

It could be the greatest night the Rio has ever known…


Tenacious D (yes) are joining us live (yes, you read that right) and in-person (no joke) for a screening of their amazing, animated magnum opus POST-APOCALYPTO and Q&A.

Wednesday, December 12
Doors 8:00 pm | Show 9:00 pm *Door and start time subject to change.

Advance tickets $25 SOLD OUT | $30 at the door (Rush Only! Subject to availability)

*Must be 19+ w/ID for entry and bar service.
**Sorry, Rio Theatre Groupons and passes not accepted for this event.

The film follows our heroes JB and KG after they survive a nuclear fallout (by hiding in a fridge, natch). When they emerge, they embark upon a crazy adventure in a new, post-apocalyptic world.

This high-larious follow up to THE PICK OF DESTINY was entirely hand-drawn by Mr. Jack Black himself, with every character voiced by the J&K, and features Tenacious D songs (including drumming goodness from long-time collaborator Dave Grohl) from their new album of the same name. Get ready for assorted time-traveling hijinks, space travel, space pirates, a bizarre creature known as “Crackalackadingdong,” a to-be-expected amount of full frontal nudity, and your pals Jables and Kyle Gass in fine form as they attempt to keep rockin’ in a bleak, post-apocalyptic world.

“If you consider yourself a fan of this band’s work in general — if, for instance, you are proud to know every word to “Kielbasa” — or know that your tastes lean towards the childish, then Post-Apocalypto will almost certainly be up your alley.” (Birth.Movies.Death.)
