AMERICATOWN Screenings: FRI 1/7 (7pm), SAT 1/8 (10pm), SUN 1/9 (7pm), MON 1/10 (10pm), TUE 1/11 (10pm), WED 1/12 (7pm), THU 1/13 (7pm, 10pm)

Come hang out with us at the ReRun Theatre in Brooklyn and check out Americatown on the big screen playing for the first weekend as a double feature with our first film Lightning Salad Moving Picture!!!

NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!

AMERICATOWN is an inventive, energetic, unapologetically absurd new comedy from filmmaker Kenneth Price and the UCB-trained comic troupe known as the Superkiiids! (Jonathan Guggenheim and Cory Howard). The Best Feature Winner at the 2010 Atlanta Underground Film Festival makes its New York theatrical premiere with a week-long run, January 7 - 13.

Godspeed, and welcome to Americatown, home to Head Mountain, Letter Sign on the Hill, and Giant Gap in Earth. Celebrated for locally made aboveground cars, an almost infinite variety of breakfast cereals and unbridled, bald-faced greatness, this little burg of exactly 1,000 citizens is the only place worthy of you. That is, until a single spilled cup of coffee sets off a cataclysmic chain of events destined to test the town's gumption. Can the Americatonians pull together and weather the madness, or are they fated to crumble like so many tiny empires before it?

For their second feature, the Superkiiids! took just two thousand bone-doggies, four folks and a minivan to explore and exploit the fruited plains, purple mountains, mythology and culture (pop and otherwise) of the United States of America, vision-questing into existence its microcosmic, hyper-realistic stepbrother heretofore known as Americatown! Land of the free-radicools, home of the bad-to-the-bone... Get on the bus.

Also screening during the run is Kenneth Price's hilariously caffeinated 2008 debut, LIGHTNING SALAD MOVING PICTURE, a Superkiiids! origin story (of sorts) in which the boys are woken up each morning by groundbreaking filmmaker Robert Zemeckis to be briefed of their daily assignment. Today's mission? Write, direct, produce, cater and possibly star in Part IV of the epic $400 Billionmillion worldwide U.S. grossing, global-networking, time-shredding franchise of the BACK TO THE FUTURE films. Will they defy steam engines, budding romances, classically trained villains and Meankiiid's 'tude in order to create their life's work for the day?

78 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated.

Merry Christmas From Americatown!

This Christmas/whatever-holiday-or-occasion-you-want-to-make-it-about we're giving away the soundtrack to Americatown, available for download at This hearty 23 track album is one of our favorite parts of the film and features a mind-blowing original score by savant/wunderkind Seth Moody (still eligible for Oscar Nomination **fingers crossed), songs recorded exclusively for the movie by some of our best friends (Ponchos From Peru, Fortress Of Swatches, Bibis Ellison, Fran Dyer), music from a couple of the most fireball-esque acts in North Carolina (Yardwork, Ryan Gustafson) and a few other tracks by bands that we somehow have a vague, make believe and pseudo-permission to use in the film (Why?, Animal Collective, Dr. Dog ).

Download the pa-ju-ju out of this album, pass it on, find the bands that contributed to it, download the pa-ju-ju out of them and give them all of your money, they are the number ones, and so, SO phenomenomenomenomenal.

Thank y'ins for your support, its been a great year, we couldn't ask for better friends. Keep your eyes peeled, we're just getting started.

Elephant Shoe,
Godspeed yourself (Godspeed your Elf)

Praise for Americatown!!!!

Praise for Americatown:

“Best Feature” --Atlanta Underground FilmFestival

“the exuberance, energy and invention more than justify [its] existence.” --Independent Weekly

“…a sometimes sublime, sometimes slapstick, sometimes puzzling but never dull 77 minutes.” -- Independent Weekly

“[Jonathan Guggenheim and Cory Howard] show the spirit—if not necessarily the execution—of Buster Keaton in his great, more-praised-than-seen works such as Our Hospitality and Sherlock Jr.” --Independent Weekly

“An utterly different take on the American fantasy” --TimeOut Chicago

“It’s fun and contemporary, relevant and humorous, using parody and hyperbole to shed light on the ridiculousness of many “American” values….”--Chicago Art Magazine

“The best of the U.S. squeezed into the ultimate small town community.” --Filmmaker Magazine

"I think I’ve found my favorite new American surrealist comedians in the team of writer/director Kenneth Price and writer/performers Cory Howard and Jonathan Guggenheim. " - Michael Tully - Hammer to Nail
