Come along to the Wildish Theater at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, July 11 to experience a film that changed the shape of Hollywood. The film, largely improvised along the idea of making a modern Western, follows Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) as a pair of outlaw motorcyclists. After selling a large haul of cocaine they plan to ride to New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras.  Along the way they meet hippies, an ACLU lawyer played by Jack Nicholson and fall afoul of small town residents and law enforcement.  The film was lauded by critics for its writing, direction, soundtrack, visuals and atmosphere and was number 88 on the 100 Years, 100 Movies list from the American Film Institute.

Starring Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson and Luana Anders, written by Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper and Terry Southern; directed by Dennis Hopper; 95 minutes; 1969; Rated R.
