JOIN US at the Parkway Theatre to show your support for the California Food and Justice Coalition and our work to create a community-driven, sustainable and just food system for all Californians. A portion of the price of the movie ticket goes towards supporting CFJC.
HELP US MAKE IT HAPPEN! We have a big year planned and the proceeds of the move night will go towards helping us:
- direct monies available in the 2008 Farm Bill to the people that need it: urban and small farmers and grassroots groups working to rebuild local food systems and increase access to healthy food
- building upon our new training and mentorship program to grow and support the movement
- future advocacy campaigns for food justice.
FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS (1998) is a whirlwind of a movie adapted from the book by Hunter S. Thomson (1971), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream. Journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) heads to Las Vegas to cover a motorcycle race, bringing along his Samoan lawyer, Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro). Duke and Gonzo are on their way with a frightened hitchhiker (Tobey Maguire) and a trunk full of drugs. Depp is terrific as Duke and Del Toro is a riot as the crazy lawyer. A master of complex, bizarre visual imagery, Terry Gilliam directed this cult classic that captures the frenetic pace of the counterculture novel.
