The Circle K that plays an vital aspect in “Bill & Ted’s Superb Experience” is closing.
The retailer is in which Keanu Reeves, who performs Ted in the 1989 movie, utters the wonderful line, “Strange issues are afoot at the Circle K.” (Picture this spoken in the most Keanu Reeves manner feasible.)
Instructed on Twitter by The Arizona Republic that the retail outlet was closing, Alex Wintertime, who plays Invoice, tweeted the fantastic reaction:
“All we are…”
Exceptionally effectively performed.
Which is a further wonderful quotation from the motion picture, when Invoice and Ted meet Socrates. (Very long story watch the movie.) Bill tells Ted to philosophize.
“All we are is dust in the wind, dude,” Ted states, quoting the really dreadful tune by the band Kansas.

What Circle K said about closing the Bill & Ted shop
Employees at the Circle K, at 1010 W. Southern Ave. in Tempe, reported they had been notified that the shop was closing on May 19. Circle K’s possession did not answer to requests for comment. (The closure was 1st reported by Phoenix New Periods.)
Circle K confirmed the closing in a assertion that commences, “The rumors aren’t bogus. We are organizing to shut our keep at 1010 W. Southern Avenue in Tempe. It is a locale that has relished some most triumphant moments in its far more than 30 yrs of serving the Tempe neighborhood.”
Staff there will be relocated to other outlets.
The assertion doubles down on the Bill & Ted-converse:
“We know that the information will occur throughout as non-non-heinous to a lot of,” it suggests. “But brace on your own, amigos. We have some bodacious options for Circle K as we go on developing in Arizona and around the earth, opening condition-of-the-art new stores and launching enjoyable new plans, offers and experiences to enable make our customers’ life a very little a lot more superb each and every day.”
The film relies on absurdity — and an innate sweetness on the section of Reeves and Winter — for its results. Someway Circle K is the great in good shape.
Other Valley locations the place the movie was shot incorporate Metrocenter Mall — it’s also absent — and Golfland Sunsplash h2o park.
In the film and its sequels, Monthly bill and Ted are large university friends with a band, Wyld Stallyns. They’re also miserable learners, and if they don’t pass an future background examination, Ted’s father will send out him to military school, breaking up the band.
That can’t occur, nevertheless, mainly because Wyld Stallyns will finally unite the planet in a utopian modern society. So George Carlin visits by way of a cellphone booth time machine to take them again to satisfy historic figures to assistance them move.
The Circle K is the place he first fulfills Invoice and Ted. And now it’s heading absent.
Seems bogus, without a doubt.
