Ok it’s time to come clean and have a neighborhood confessional – how many of you were obsessed with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when they first came out? Everyone right! Well now it is time to re-live all those days of green childhood fantasy and spark that same fire in your kids or grandchildren as the Turtles make a comeback!
Families and fanboys alike are invited to hit the green carpet for a throwback Hollywood-style premiere event to see “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze” take on the big screen in full glory once again! Guests are encouraged to dress up as their fave turtle and participate in costume contests for a chance to win prizes (watch a YouTube tutorial on how to make your own TMNT costume quick & cheap with reused/recyclable materials here & take a look at these DIY costume ideas to get inspired), catch killer martial arts demos and engage in a Q & A session with the turtle man himself and original creator/writer Kevin Eastman along with the Pizza Boy from the film and martial arts master, Ernie Reyes, Jr. and the executive producer of the brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie set to take over theaters in 2014, Napoleon Smith. The little ones will especially get a kick out of the Turtled-out pizza party at the Dave & Busters Tempe Marketplace after the flick. There will be photo ops available with all of the cool cats in attendance as well as memorabilia from the franchise.
Also, you get a chance to be a star too!!!! LIKE the FB Page Ninja Turtles on the Green Carpet and send them over a pic of your TMNT drawing, costume, collectables or original creation for a shot at having at appear on the big screen at the theater!
