“This superb and singular film catches the charm and tribal energy of the teen-age 1950s.” Time magazine

On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), Steve (Ronny Howard), Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock'n'roll tunes. It's the last night before their grown-up lives begin, and Steve's high-school sweetheart, a restless blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle. (George Lucas, 1973, PG, 110 min.)

Friday night under the stars! Bring breathable blankets or a low chair, a picnic and your friends.
