"DUDES" Special Film Screening w/ Penelope Spheeris

from 8.00

"DUDES" (1987) Special Film Screening and Q&A Session following the Film with Director Penelope Spheeris. 

Urban angst meets the Wild West when three NYC punks (Jon Cryer of Pretty in Pink, Daniel Roebuck of River’s Edge, and Flea of Suburbia and the Red Hot Chili Peppers) on a road trip to California cross paths with a vicious gang and their psycho leader (Lee Ving, Streets of Fire and Fear). Aided by a pistol-packin’ knockout (Catherine Mary Stewart, Night of the Comet), a daredevil Elvis Presley impersonator (Pete Willcox), and mystical spirits of the past, they relentlessly pursue the gang to an epic, hallucinogenic, final showdown.  

Directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization, Suburbia, Wayne’s World, Blacksheep, Beverly Hillbillies, Little Rugrats), Dudes blasts a killer soundtrack featuring The Vandals, The Little Kings, Keel, Jane’s Addiction and Steve Vai.

Come join us for this special screening of "DUDES!" with Special guest and Director Penelope Spheeris in attendance and who will participate in a Q&A session following the Film Screening. LIFF will present a LIFF Lifetime Achievement Award to Penelope at the LIFF Awards Ceremony Saturday night at the Tropicana Pavilion Theater.
