FORT MASON FLIX: American Graffiti
Fort Mason Center For Arts & CultureMay 21st @ 5:30 p.m.
“Somebody wants me. Somebody who’s out there roaming the streets wants me!”
About: Over the course of a summer evening, four teenage friends ponder their futures, navigating relationships centered around the cruising culture of their sleepy town in California’s San Joaquin valley. After a madcap series of hilarious encounters, they each make decisions that will forever change their lives. An enduring classic, American Graffiti celebrates an America of the early 1960s, where teenagers cruise the streets in hot rods and rock and roll tops the music charts. Inspired by his youth in the valley town of Modesto, CA, Graffiti was George Lucas’ second feature film, and is a masterwork of vibrant colors, exciting soundtracks, and endearing characters. A story of coming-of-age, it remains one of the most successful films in history. (LucasFilm.com)
