QUADROPHENIA - 35MM PRINT!: Mods, miniskirts, scooters, Stax, pills, parkas. Based on The Who’s concept album, the 1979 film Quadrophenia puts it all together, displaying the beauty and alienation of 1960s British working-class youth, and their often aimless pursuit of fashion, music, “blues,” sex, and rivalry with the Rockers. Starring Phil Daniels in his signature role as Jimmy, with emerging British talent like Ray Winstone ( Nil By Mouth, Sexy Beast), pop singer Toyah Wilcox, Lesley Ash, Philip Davis, and Sting from the Police. " Quadrophenia tells a universal story. 'Mod' is a shorter word for 'young, beautiful and stupid' - we've all been there." - Pete Townshend. (showtime 7:00pm)

DANCE CRAZE – RARE SHOWING!: British ska revival 2 Tone bands are caught at their peak in live performance in this rarely seen iconic 1981 film (not available on video). Director Joe Massot (Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains The Same) filmed Madness, The Specials, The Selecter, The Bodysnatchers, The (English) Beat and Bad Manners in various UK venues, in high-energy performances that explode off the screen. The bands and audiences display the energy, passion, fashion, and sense of community, that made 2 Tone such a huge UK youth movement, and created a devoted following in the U.S. (showtime 9:30pm)
