Only three guys can stop a madman from total destruction
Ticket to the show: $7. Popcorn, soda and candy: 12 bucks. Seeing "Mega64": Priceless. A tale of dreams found and lost, of family and of the brutality inside and outside the video game world. A madman out for revenge, a group of friends in a battle for survival and a puppet who could save them all. American film-making legend Rocco takes us from hell through purgatory and into paradise, each represented by modern conflicts in what is billed as a complex and profound work of art. Watch and learn how to draw crappy mustaches, you can't go wrong.
"In the not too distant future, a former video game programmer and mad scientist Dr. Poque grows weary of the world's games. Shunned from society, he invents the most powerful video game console ever created- The Mega64; A machine powerful enough to download old video games into users' brains, making them embarrassingly real. To prove himself to the reluctant public, he captures ordinary teenagers to beta test the machine 24/7 and document their progress within his secret compound... beneath his apartment building. Lead by the brave duo of Rocko and Derek, this kidnapped crew must endure the digital insanity and learn why video games and the real world should never mix."
