Movie Moxie – prp. n. – The Highball's boozy and offbeat live movie trivia game show!
Movie Moxie features contestants from Austin's film and cinephile community battling for mental dominance and your amusement. They'll face a variety of motion picture questions from host Maxim Pozderac [Fantastic Feud, QRANK] and co-host Nicholas Pozderac before the alcohol-soaked final round where they must drink their answers. Fun will be had, egos will be inflated and/or crushed, newly-learned obscure facts will be quickly forgotten, and throughout the evening there will be prizes for select audience members who can prove their Movie Moxie™
You love movies. We love movies. More often than not, the people who make movies and give awards to movie makers love movies. With this in mind, for May we go behind the scenes with Movie Movie Moxie, a show about movies about movies. Our three teams of film fans will answer questions about on-screen film fans and the real & imagined backlot shenanigans that the camera captures when motion pictures are made. Also playing at this trivia megaplex will be rounds about classic Hollywood, fictional portrayals of real filmmakers, and the experience of audiences in movie theaters watching movies where an audience in a movie theater watches a movie. Sure, this all sounds overly confusing, but on Saturday, May 12th, drink a highball at The Highball and everything will become clear.
