NEW ORLEANS, LA- July 9, 2015– Will Samuels, co-owner of Lakeview’s Pizza Nola, announced today that the pizzeria will host a viewing party and costume contest for the premiere of the SyFy Channel original movie Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, from 7:00-10pm, at 141 W Harrison.
“The Sharknado films may comprise one of the most important cinematic trilogies of our time,” said Samuels. “At this point, it has become our civic duty as responsible media consumers and as a casual affordably-priced full-service family restaurant to commemorate it accordingly.” Previously, the restaurant has held viewing parties for the first two Sharknado movies, the SyFy epics Ghost Shark and Arachnoquake, and last year’s season premiere of NCIS: New Orleans.
According to SyFy Channel, in Sharknado 3 the entire Eastern seaboard is affected by the “shearing winds of teeth and death” as a Sharknado ravages from Washington, D.C. to Orlando, FL. Once again, Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) must save the day with the assistance of David Hasselhoff, Bo Derek, Cassie Scerbo, and a host of celebrity cameos (including Mark Cuban as the President, Ann Coulter as the Vice President, and Lou Ferrigno as Secret Service Agent “Banner”) .
The movie begins at 8pm, preceded at 7pm by a Sharknado costume contest. Celebrity judges include Sharknado experts Scott Walker (news anchor, WDSU-TV), Kevin Allman (Editor, Gambit Weekly), and Allison Kushner (Director, Jewish Community Relations Council, and Sharknado star Ian Ziering’s cousin). Contest prizes include a Sharknado2 screenplay signed by screenwriter Thunder Levin, signed DVDs by the movie’s director, Anthony C. Ferrante, Pizza Nola gift certificates signed by Will Samuels, and other goodies to be determined.
The movie will be projected on a large screen in the pizzeria’s parking lot. Food and drinks will be available for sale from the restaurant, and participants are encouraged to bring blankets and/or folding chairs (no outside food or drinks). The party also will include giveaways and door prizes. The event is free.
Pizza Nola is located at 141 W Harrison Ave in Lakeview and is open daily with dine-in and carryout service as well as delivery to 70124, 70005, UNO and beyond. On Fridays through Sundays, the restaurant offers a full breakfast (including delivery) from Bawk beginning at 7am.
