American Graffiti - Win Passes to the Saturday, May 22nd screening

I really need a date night and I've never seen American Graffiti either! Maybe I have been spending too much time under the lemon trees.

Just learned about California Independent Film Festival and Diablo Magazine's Classic Film Series at the Orinda Theatre. To sweeten the deal, Diablo Magazine is giving away FREE passes to the Saturday, May 22nd screening of American Graffiti. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Have a great weekend!


  1. American Graffiti is among the best movies ever made.

    It was filmed in the Bay Area, including a scene at Concord's own Buchanan Airfield. It was a sleeper (a low-budget film that went huge).

    The TV-show "Happy Days" is loosely based on the camaraderie from American Graffiti, and don't forget all the Happy-Days spin-offs: Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy, Blansky's Beauties, Out of the Blue, and Joanie Loves Chachi. Technically, Happy-Days was a spin-off from: "Love, American Style", but, IMHO, it all started with American Graffiti.

  2. Thanks for posting this. I forgot all about the Orinda. This will make a fine evening out with the Mrs.
