Movie Loft Presents “Dudes”
Thursday, September 12th, 2019
This September at Shadowbox Studio, Movie Loft hits the road with a screening of the 1987 adventuromedy ‘Dudes’! Directed by Penelope Spheeris (‘Suburbia’, ‘Wayne’s World’, etc.), the action follows a trio of punks (Jon Cryer, Daniel Roebuck, and Flea) as they flee the city for parts out West. But along the way they have to cowboy up against a dreadful guy named Missoula (Lee Ving!), with the help of local tow-truck driver Jessie (Catherine Mary Stewart).
Spheeris was amidst ‘Decline of Western Civilization Part 2: the Metal Years’, and the soundtrack certainly reflects this. What is maybe a punk rock western (dubbed as the “Easy Rider of the Eighties’) certainly leans heavy on the metal. Filmed in Arizona, and with appearances by John Densmore and punk band the Vandals, we find out how “New York City is tough, but the country is really murder.”
There will be primo ’80s metal records spinning starting at 7, along with hot grilled weenies! The movie hits the gas around 8, with more tunes afterwards.
Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what’s on-hand!
