Richard Linklater Double Feature: Slacker + Dazed and Confused

Richard Linklater Double Feature: Slacker + Dazed and Confused

6:45pm - Thursday, Jul 6, 2023

Alright, alright, alright!

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

Get ready to toast Austin, Texas filmmaker Richard Linklater on July 6 with back-to-back viewings of two 90's-era classics from his canon that best exemplify the "wandering eye," pre-mumblecore aesthetic for which he is best known. We're firing up the projector for a double feature that includes both the 1991 indie darling SLACKER (that caught the attention of critics - and Madonna), and a 30th Anniversary screening of DAZED AND CONFUSED (which caught the attention of, well, everyone else).

Thursday, July 6
Doors 6:15 pm | Movie 6:45 pm *Start time subject to change, Please arrive on time.

SLACKER (Richard Linklater, 1991 / 18A / 97 mins) A day in the life of Austin, Texas as the camera roams from place to place and provides a brief look at the overeducated, the social misfits, the outcasts and the oddballs.

Movie 9:00 pm *As this is a double feature, this is an aproximate start time.

DAZED AND CONFUSED (Richard Linklater, 1993 / 102 mins, 14A) | The adventures of a group of Texas teens on their last day of school in 1976, centering on student Randall Floyd, who moves easily among stoners, jocks and geeks. Floyd is a star athlete, but he also likes smoking weed, which presents a conundrum when his football coach demands he sign a "no drugs" pledge.
