Theatre 650, billed as a "new late-night experience at Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte,” continues its Cult Movie Mondays Film Series by presenting 1984’s This Is Spinal Tap at 8 p.m. next Monday, April 28, at the group’s venue at 650 E. Stonewall St.

Directed by Rob Reiner, This Is Spinal Tap has long been considered a cult classic and was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2002. Starring Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer (who all also co-wrote the script with Reiner), the film was largely responsible for the popularity of the “mockumentary” genre that has since produced such titles as Waiting for Guffman and Best In Show. And in 2007, the picture ranked #3 on Creative Loafing’s list of the 20 greatest rock films ever made.

Monday’s screening will be followed by local actor Scott Ripley and band performing some Hedwig and the Angry Inch tunes.

Admission is free, and so is the popcorn. Drink specials will also be available ($2 beer, $3 wine). For more info, call 704-342-2251 or go to http://blog.myspace.com/actorstheatrecharlotte.
