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."
Thomas, along with fellow co-creators Dan Etheridge and John Enborn, were joined on stage by cast members Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Megan Mullaly and Ryan Hansen.
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!
