Enjoy the 1973 classic “American Graffiti” film starring Richard Dreyfuss, Ronny Howard, Harrison Ford, Paul Le Mat, Wolfman Jack, Bo Hopkins and more, directed and co-written by George Lucas. “American Graffiti” is an American coming-of-age comedy-drama film set in Modesto, California. The film is a study of the cruising and rock-and-roll cultures popular among the post–World War II baby boom generation. The film is told in a series of vignettes, telling the story of a group of teenagers and their adventures on their last summer night before college. This Academy Award-nominated classic was voted one of the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Films of All Time. Discover drag racing, Inspiration Point and drive-ins all over again in this nostalgic look back at 1962. The incredible soundtrack brings you the most memorable rock-and-roll hits of the era.
