For The Love Of Food & Movies: Local Food Pop-Up Teams With Media Company For "Scream" Screening!

The movie theater experience is said to bring people together as they gather around and experience the escapism as one congregation. Well that is exactly what happened when local food pop-up owner of "Ziggy's Smash Burgers" Mike" Ziggy" Devish had a conversation with owner "Keith Klep" Napier.

CritiX Media, for the last 5 years, have covered and reviewed the latest in movies, television and pop culture news including Comic Cons across the country at the same time interviewing some of your favorite television and movie stars. It is a perfect marriage of the two companies.

" We've decided to bring the four things we love together. Our two brains, food and movies."

Says Klep owner of CritiX Media/

The two companies have teamed up to bring a fan experience like no other to their home town in Massachusetts, which will provide a FREE screening of the new Scream [2022] movie hosted at Millbury, Massachusetts at The Blackstone Cinema De Lux. The catch? Well, all any fan of Ziggy's Smash Burgers or the Scream franchise will simply need to do is pre-order a delicious and well sized specialty themed burger meal to attend the screening.

The idea was originally spawned Just last month after Devish surprised his son with a Christmas gift, renting out an entire Showcase theater for he and his friends, to Screen the box-office smash Spider-Man: No Way Home. This inspired a conversation between Mike and CritiX that would then lead to a collaborative treat for Smash and Scream fans in New England.

"Just pick up your pre-order and bracelet. Then meet us at the theater"

Says Devish.
