Everybody knows that the '70s was the best-ever decade for rock music, but the era of eight-tracks and flared jeans produced some damn fine movies as well.
Four fine examples of what the seventies spawned film-wise will be offered at the VIFF Centre tomorrow (July 15), and it'll only cost you $2.50 to see each one.
As part of its specially curated series, Ragged Glory: Summer in the 70s, the moviehouse is screening the 1970 Rolling Stones concert doc Gimme Shelter at 6 pm in the Studio Theatre, the 1971 coming-of-age comedy-drama Harold and Maude at 6:40 in the Vancity Theatre, writer-director-star Dennis Hopper's 1971 flick The Last Movie at 8 pm in the Studio Theatre, and Robert Altman's 1979 Vietnam War comedy M*A*S*H* at 9 pm in the Vancity Theatre.
If you're a big Stones fan, better hurry and score tickets to Gimme Shelter. To get you motivated, here's a video showing clips of the film to the sweet '70s sound of Blue Öyster Cult's "Transmaniacon MC".
