American Graffiti Friday, August 7

American Graffiti Part of the Summer Fridays

In the perfect summer classic, a couple of high school grads spend one final night cruising the strip with their buddies before they go off to college.

 

THE FILM SERIES AT GORTON PRESENTS:

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 hot-to-trot blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle.

Directed by George Lucas
Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Harrison Ford

Individually wrapped concessions available for purchase before the film.
