(Allan Arkush, 1979)

35MM Print

A legendary cult film of the 1970s, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School stars P. J. Soles as Riff Randell, the biggest Ramones fan at Vince Lombardi High School. She’s dying to meet Joey Ramone to give him a song she wrote for the innovative punk rock band, but when Principal Togar (Warhol superstar Mary Woronov) confiscates her ticket for the Ramones’ upcoming show, Randell leads a revolt to overthrow the school. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see the rambunctious classic in 35mm! (93 mins., 35mm)
