On Thursday, June 7, dancing to 'My Sharona' will be blasting through Howler. The next night, perhaps the Brunswick venue will bring out a few ice sculptures. And the following evening, we recommend bringing your croquet mallet. Throw in a sing-along to Cher's version of 'The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)', and the scene is set for three nights of flicks celebrating the one and only Winona Ryder.

Here, sporting a 'Winona Forever' tattoo is encouraged. Changing it to 'Wino Forever', well, not so much. In the same vein as its Twin Peaks, Back to the Future and Bill Murray shindigs, Howler will show its love for the ultimate '90s screen queen with a three-day beanbag cinema experience between June 7 and 9 — screening, if you hadn't guessed it already, Reality Bites, Edward Scissorhands, Mermaids and Heathers.

Whether you're a Winona fan from way back when, have a 'Free Winona' shirt in your closet or just love her work in Stranger Things, you'd best don your favourite black outfit, forget about dispensing with your enemies and head out for a very very few nights. Tickets start at $25 per film, with a $32 Wino Forever option available — yep, with a glass of vino included.
