Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse feted the cult sitcom June 26
Through strong word of mouth and Netflix streaming, "Party Down" — a cult sitcom about a slacker catering crew that ran for two seasons on Starz — has become far more popular now than when it was on the air.
That may be why news of a possible "Party Down" movie hit the Internet with more force than seemed possible when the show was canceled in 2010.
The revelation, by co-creator Rob Thomas, came at a June 26 event put together by Austin's Alamo Drafthouse, which paid tribute with a marathon of the show's 20 episodes and a discussion with cast and crew.
Thomas said the movie would potentially shoot next April — unless his potential Fox midseason sitcom "Little in Common" receives a big order.
Collider.com dug even further and got Thomas to say, "We talked about structuring it like 'Four Weddings and a Funeral.' We don’t envision the movie as one long party. We think each act would be a new party and we’d stretch it out over the better part of a year so we’d be able to … get some finality to some of the existing storylines."
Jane Lynch, who left during the first season to join "Glee!," was a no-show, as was Paul Rudd, another co-creator. But it hardly mattered, gauging from the crowd reaction in the six other videos below.
The potential movie isn't the only on-camera "Party Down" reunion in the works: Some of the actors will appear as their catering characters in upcoming episode of Adult Swim's "Childrens Hospital," which co-stars Marino and Mullaly.
Check out the clips from the Alamo event below — it's almost like being there!
