Dazed and Confused (30th Aniversary Screening)

9:00pm - Thursday, Jul 6, 2023

Alright, alright, alright!

Why go cruising the strip or climbing the moon tower on a Friday night when you could spend it at your favourite indie movie theatre instead?

Join us at the Rio Theatre for a 30th Anniversary screening of a slice of cult-classic nostalgia that celebrates the best day of high school you never had: Richard Linklater’s DAZED AND CONFUSED.

As fresh today as it was when it was released in 1993, Linklater's infinitely quotable coming-of-age tale features a truly excellent ensemble cast, an authentically groovy 70s feel, and a pretty killer soundtrack, man. DAZED AN CONFUSED might be Linklater's best-loved work, and really showcases his signature rambling, naturalistic style and an approach to storytelling that was so memorable in his breakthrough 1991 indie hit, Slacker. Dazed and Confused manages to take a peek into the cliques and characters of high school in a smart, heartfelt, and often very funny way, revealing an endearing and occasionally profound picture of, "the best years of your life." Starring Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, Matthew McConaughey, Parker Posey, Joey Lauren Adams, Rory Cochrane, Adam Goldberg, Anthony Rapp, Marissa Ribisi, Milla Jovovovovich, and Ben Affleck.
