The (Original) Wrestler at the Parkway Theater

posted by MP Johnson

You know how Darren Aronofsky‘s the Wrestler was totally brilliant? Well, fuck that. I don’t want brilliance, I want wrestling (actually, I want brilliance, but just go with me here). I want Verne Gagne and Ed Asner throwing body slams and hamming it up. I want 70s movies with poster art that is so cool the movie could never possibly live up to it. The Parkway is delivering this in the original the Wrestler, showing from 1/27 to 2/2. During the weekend showings, Verne is going to make an appearance and his son Greg is going to do a Q&A.
