It's the last night of the summer in the 1950s before Curt Henderson (Richard Dreyfuss) and his good friend Steve Bolander (Ron Howard) have to leave their small town and start college. Throughout a night of cruising, drag racing, fights, and picking up girls, punctuated by popular music of the time, they both struggle with whether or not they have made the right decision and confront the reality of approaching adulthood. Meanwhile, the rest of their friends, including Steve's girlfriend and Curt's sister Laurie (Cindy Williams), also are faced with their departure and begin to consider the course their own lives are taking. Charles Martin Smith, Harrison Ford, Wolfman Jack, Kathleen Quinlan, and Mackenzie Phillips co-star, with a memorable cameo by Suzanne Somers. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress, and Golden Globe winner for Best Motion Picture.

Proceeds from the screening will go to the Glendale Kiwanis and Glendale Arts.
