We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Get A Job is the best fictional feature film ever produced in our islands. A polished independent endeavor starring friends, family and famous Mauians, Get A Job is a raucous romp through the Valley Isle that follows the antics of two dichotomous heroes (played by Willie K and Eric Gilliom) whose worlds collide. Just as fun is the fact that the fine folks behind the film are masters of pono promotion—and know how to party. A follow-up to their already legendary MACC premier, this weekend’s 13 showtimes—spread out over four days at the historic Iao Theater—is not to be missed. Rub elbows with cast and crew members who’ll be around to sign autographs and partake in special post-screening Q&A sessions (after every 5pm show), plus listen in on Thursday for radio shows on KAOI 91.5FM (7:15pm) and Q103 (9:15pm). Considering this film has the potential to kick-start our local movie-making industry, it’d be wise to scoop official movie merchandise like T-shirts designed by Maui Thing, CDs, the official movie poster and a special poster commemorating this first-time theatrical run (and if you want to get really into it, go to multiple showings to collect the unique tickets for each screening… brownie points for getting a Friday at 7:15pm MauiTime ticket—enter to win some at mauitime.com). Of course, you can’t party without ono grinds and libations. So the burgeoning beer garden that’s given Wailuku First Fridays (and Market Street at large) such a brewtiful bump is opening up on Friday and Saturday (4-9:30pm), teaming with Cafe O‘Lei to offer a custom menu. A comfortable seating section for the whole ‘ohana will be housed on the makai side of the garden, and on the mauka end those 21+ can enjoy beers like Stella and Shock Top, and a selection of wines from house to ultra-premium reds and whites. Best of all, beer garden proceeds benefit Maui OnStage. Plus, check out Wailuku Coffee Co. for extended cafe hours (Thursday & Friday 7am-7pm). Tickets are going fast, so get them in person at Maui Thing or online at getajobthemovie.com.
