One of the most beloved American films of all time – for a number of different reasons – American Graffiti is going to be back on the big screen in just a few weeks after one of the biggest classic car shows in California.
Available 100% free of charge on 8 PM is this July 11 after the close of the local classic car show, the general public will be ushered into a restored theater to watch this movie that highlighted so many of the same classic rides in a day would have been able to see just a few short hours before.
Films in 1973 (taking place in nearby Modesto in 1962), the film follows to high school friends out for a night of cruising around before they head off to college. Featuring many of the same rides that the people watching the film will be able to see and touch for themselves just before the lights go down, this brings a new and interesting multimedia spin to the summertime classic car event and it should make for a rather big hit. If you’re a lover of all things classic automobile – or just enjoy the film itself – you’ll want to find yourself down at the Old California Theater on Railroad Avenue on July 11.
