      Movies on the Square - That Thing You Do

      It's the summer of 1964 and rock and roll is here to stay. Nobody knows that better than Guy Patterson, appliance salesman and drummer for The Wonders, a local rock band whose popular song, "That Thing You Do!," is about to change his life forever. Although their first club booking is in a spaghetti joint near the Erie airport, it isn't long before The Wonders land a recording contract, a state fair tour and a trip to Hollywood. And as their signature song rockets to the top of the charts, The Wonders embark on a humorous and surprising journey where they not only get a taste of fame, but an extraordinary look at the halcyon days of rock and roll.
