Totally Awesome: Films of the ’80s at AFI
The AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring is paying tribute to these and other memorable films with “Totally Awesome: Films of the 1980s,” a two-month-long retrospective look at some of the more influential movies of the time.
The series starts Friday, July 6, and runs through Thursday, September 6, showcasing an eclectic collection of films that includes everything from light-hearted comedy (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off) to zombie horror (Evil Dead: Dead by Dawn) to indie fare (Blue Velvet).
Tickets are available online (general admission is $9.25); you can view the complete line-up and the showtime schedule at this link.
You might want to go all out with some pop rocks candy and peach wine cooler. But please—leave the ’80s attire at home.
