Alright, alright, alright!
Kick off the summer with the first screening in the CALS Ron Robinson Theater Rock & Reel film series: Dazed & Confused!
The screening starts at 7pm. Admission is $5.
Richard Linklater’s coming-of-age film follows the mayhem of group of rowdy teenagers in Austin, Texas, celebrating the last day of high school in 1976.
The graduating class heads for a popular pool hall and joins an impromptu keg party, however star football player Randall “Pink” Floyd (Jason London) has promised to focus on the championship game and abstain from partying. Meanwhile, the incoming freshmen try to avoid being hazed by the seniors, most notably the sadistic bully Fred O’Bannion (Ben Affleck).
Others in the cast are Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Rory Cochrane, Adam Goldberg, Anthony Rapp, Marissa Ribisi, Cole Hauser, Wiley Wiggins, Parker Posey, Nicky Katt, and Renee Zellweger.
Joey Lauren Adams also stars in the movie. When the Culture Vulture first saw the movie he said in a too loud voice in the Missouri movie theatre where the late night screening was taking place, “Oh my God! I went to high school with her!”
