Some people find talking cans of mixed vegetables funny, and some do not. If you do, you may already know about the Sixth and I Synagogue-sponsored screening of David Wain and Michael Showalter’s Wet Hot American Summer, the 2001 Jewish summer camp satire starring Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, and a slew of comedians from Comedy Central and the Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” programming. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the film has a reputation as a dorm-room classic, and rumors are swirling that its mostly successful cast is considering a prequel. Until that happens, this screening with a costume contest, s’mores, and trivia at the Capitol Skyline Hotel will have to fill the void. Given Wet Hot’s cult following and infinitely quotable non sequiturs, come prepared for a lively atmosphere rivaling that of Camp Firewood, especially during the film’s culminating scene that includes a famously salty revelation from that chatty can of veggies.
The film shows at 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Skyline Hotel, 10 I St. SW. $12 admission includes a drink and a s’more.
