Each month we have a Trivia Night to have fun and help raise money for Variety, The Children’s Charity! This month’s theme was ’80s Movie Trivia, since the 1980s are remembered fondly for many things, perhaps none moreso than its movies.
This month’s winner was team: Gays and Straights. Our next trivia night will be Tuesday, September 12th.
Since we will never use the same questions (even if we have the same theme), here are some of the crowd favorites from ’80s trivia night:
Almost everyone knew:
Where did Molly Ringwald’s character work in Pretty in Pink?
What movie is this tag line from: “The Plane’s going to Chicago. The Pilot’s going to New York. The Passengers are going to Pieces!”
Who plays Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter in Commando?
What was the license number on the Ghostbusters’ car?
Jennifer Aniston made her film debut in which 80s sci-fi movie? (Hint: Not the obvious guess!)
What movie is the quote: “You break his heart, I’ll break your face” from?
Name the ‘80s horror movie in which ZERO women appear.
How many movies did Jim Henson direct in the ’80s?
Answers to the above:
Record Store, Airplane!, Alyssa Milano, ECTO-1Mac & Me, Some Kind of Wonderful, The Thing, 3
If you knew the answers to these, you should buy tickets for our next trivia night! If you didn’t, you should find friends that do and bring them so you can enjoy a fun night while they do all the heavy brain work!
All of our Trivia Nights are created in-house with a very specific format: 40 questions with no movies repeated. These questions involve music, video clips, images and of course an amazing host: Carmelo of Chimera’s Comics. We always throw in at least one “What movie is this song the theme of question”, one music video, and one trailer. The rest is random! Some hard, kind of hard and of course some soft balls. Hope to see you at our next trivia night!
