Get Crazy (Allan Arkush In Person)

Director Allan Arkush will join us IN PERSON, schedule permitting, for a Q&A between films.

Director Allan Arkush’s high energy blast of gonzo gags, zonked laughs, and raucous rock & roll follows the team at the Saturn Theater (The Wiltern!) as they attempt to stage the greatest New Year’s Eve show ever – and they won’t let anyone get in the way, not the wild crowds nor the even wilder performers, and certainly not the rival concert promoter out to steal their auditorium. Featuring nonstop insanity, wall-to-wall music, a fun cast packed with cult film stars, plus a theme song by Sparks!

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School

Hey ho, let’s go! The most fun you’ll ever have going back to class, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School is a rapid-fire teensploitation comedy classic backed to the punk beat of The Ramones! When an iron-fisted new principal (Mary Woronov) takes over, music-loving teen rebel Riff Randell (PJ Soles) will have to unite the student body with the help of her favorite band, to joyously overthrow the administration.
