QUADROPHENIA at Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In
Friday October 27th, 8:00pm
Railroad Tracks at Fair Ave, Santa Cruz
Come dressed as a Mod or a Rocker!
Quadrophenia, a haunting and richly-textured 1979 epic follows Jimmy, a young and disillusioned working-class rebel trying to find himself in London. A scooter-riding, pill-popping, sharp-dressed kid, Jimmy and his fellow Mods battle the Rockers in 1964 Brighton. (Yes, it's based on The Who rock opera of the same name, but its nothing like the other Who rock opera Tommy. Where Tommy is self-indulgent hallucinogenic fantasy, Quadrophenia is gritty realism.) Rico hosts.
PLUS a ride, bike valet parking, intermission, urban wasteland, and great company.
BRING lawn chairs, blankets, pillows, friends, wine, & food to share for intermission. Donations are greatly appreciated and directly support the project.
SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theatre under the stars that springs up in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.
SUBURBAN WASTELAND LOCATION: S on Hwy 17 to Hwy 1, Hwy 1 north to Mission St, L on Fair Ave after Feral Donuts, walk a short way along the RR tracks to the right.
