Restored 35 mm. Print + Mod Party! Scooter Rally!
QUADROPHENIA, 1979, Rhino Home Video & American Cinematheque Presents..., 115 min. Inspired by the Whos landmark concept album and featuring some of composer Pete Townsends most ambitious music, director Franc Roddams QUADROPHENIA is set against the backdrop of early 1960s England, where scooter-driving Mods and leather-clad Rockers clash for control of the beaches and juke joints. Phil Daniels stars as the rude boy struggling against Britains ultra-rigid class and education system, with support from Mark Wingett and Sting (in his acting debut). There will be a Mod Party following the screening in the Egyptian courtyard. Special Ticket price of $12.00 General, $10.00 Members for this event.
Mod Fashion display courtesy of Eskandalo!, Hollywood, Hair Salon and Clothing Store (1623 N. Cahuenga Blvd.). Open Late!
QUADROPHENIA will open in LA for a special one-week engagement following this sneak preview of the restored 35 mm print! Look for QUADROPHENIA around the US this summer and fall.
