Easy Rider @ The Remarkable Theater
October 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Easy Rider introduced a new era in Hollywood: avant-garde directors shooting low-budget films, showing the young generation’s perspective on their lives and the world they were changing. Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda not only star as two bikers making their way across the South and Southwest, they also directed and wrote the film, respectively. The companions they meet along their journey, from hippie to lawyer to farmer, paint the screen with colorful characters native to the emerging counter-culture.
Nominated for two Academy Awards, this film left its mark on the American psyche, and opened an avenue for unknown directors to make their Hollywood dream come true.
