The Anniversary Show is The Mini’s new monthly fundraiser celebrating films that reach significant historical milestones in 2019. Support our mission by attending these special ticketed events, which include themed drinks and snacks. Our August program presents Rock 'n' Roll High School, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019.
“Set in Vince Lombardi High, an institution with the lowest academic standing in California, Rock 'n' Roll High School pits cheerleader Riff Randell (P.J. Soles) and her fellow students against the new principal, the insufferable Miss Togar (Mary Woronov), and her evil henchmen. A showdown between the two factions, sparked by rock 'n' roll - specifically the music of the Ramones - leads to a widespread riot on the campus. This is probably the only American film in existence where an educational institution is completely trashed by the end and no one is punished.” - TCM (93 min)
