As part of the 50th anniversary celebration, West Shore Community College is sponsoring a classic Hollywood film series in collaboration with Manistee’s Vogue Theater.
“American Graffiti” (1973) is next in the series and will be screened in the Vogue Theater, on Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m.
On the last day of summer vacation in 1962, friends Curt (Richard Dreyfuss), Steve (Ronny Howard), Terry (Charles Martin Smith) and John (Paul Le Mat) cruise the streets of small-town California while a mysterious disc jockey (Wolfman Jack) spins classic rock'n'roll tunes.
It's the last night before their grown-up lives begin, and Steve's high-school sweetheart, a hot-to-trot blonde, a bratty adolescent and a disappearing angel in a Thunderbird provide all the excitement they can handle.
Two films from each decade of the college’s existence (1967 - 2017) are being screened until June 2017. The remaining films will be shown on December 13, January 17, February 14, March 14, April 18, May 16, and June 13, at 7:30 p.m.
Moviegoers will be charged the same ticket price for the decade in which the films were released.
