Time to break out your “flare” and at least one red stapler.
Dayton Offices, 301 W. First St. in downtown Dayton, is hosting a free Office Space-themed grand opening party 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 16.
The 1999 cult classic written and directed by Mike Judge is about three office workers who hate their jobs.
It stars Jennifer Aniston, Ron Livingston, Ajay Naidu, David Herman, Gary Cole and Stephen Root.
The movie includes the totally timely death of an office printer that had it coming and a long list of memorable lines that includes:
“I'm gonna need you to go ahead and come in tomorrow.”
“It's not that I'm lazy, I just don't care.”
“I believe you have my stapler.”
Dayton Office recently opened and bills itself as the
“Gem City’s first homegrown all-inclusive office space concept.”
Office space rental starts at $495. The business offers corner, window and interior space.
“We’re giving small companies the resources of a big corporation for a good monthly rate. They get a receptionist, mailing address, internet, phones, conference rooms and parking for no additional charge,” Dayton Offices President Bob Posner said in a press release.
Party-goers are encouraged to dress like Office Space characters during the family friendly party that includes music from local band Spungewurthy, food trucks, drinks and office space tours in and around Dayton Offices’ building.
Awards will be given for best dressed.
