“This superb and singular film captures the charm and tribal energy of the teen-age 1950s.”

UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Hot Fun in the Summertime: American Graffiti, on Friday, July 8th at the County Courthouse Sunken Garden at 8:30 p.m. Pre film festivities include a classic car show on Anapamu Street between Anacapa and Santa Barbara Streets.

On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), Steve (Ronny Howard), Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock’n’roll tunes. It’s the last night before their grown-up lives begin, and Steve’s high-school sweetheart, a restless blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle. (George Lucas, 1973, PG, 110 min.)

Filmgoers may start setting up at noon on the day of the screening. Please respect the lawn and your fellow filmgoers: blankets should be permeable (no plastic/nylon/tarps), and chairs must be low-backed and low to the ground. Park staff may remove plastic items that harm the lawn.
