OUR LAST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER SEASON!
PT Anderson’s opus is a mesmerizing, hilarious and terrifying plunge into the porn industry of the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s. Starring Mark Wahlberg in the first starring role that established him as a serious actor. Great performances by Julianne Moore, John C Reilly, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Heather Graham and Burt Reynolds as the silver fox director. Based loosely on real events in the life of John Holmes and others, Boogie Nights is a wild ride through the funhouse of the disco era, ebullient and shattering.
DJ Cut Chemist spins before and after the screening.
