Weekend at Bernie’s star Terry Kiser was at the Rockaways in New York City Friday for a BBQ Films event called "Weekend at Bernie Jr.’s,” commemorating the 25th anniversary of the film, which co-starred Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman.

At the event, Terry answered questions about his infamous Bernie “smirk,” talked about what the film means to him, demonstrated the Bernie lean from a chair, posed with guests, and spoke about upcoming projects.

The party was hosted by the crew of BBQ Films, an event production company that creates immersive cinematic experiences in extraordinary locations.

BBQ Films wowed crowds with their Back to the Future-inspired Enchantment Under the Sea Dance in March, as well as their Foot-Clan Tryouts (of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fame) last November.
