American Graffiti (12A)

FILMS: An enduring classic, American Graffiti celebrates an America of the early 1960s, where teenagers cruise the streets in hot rods and rock and roll tops the music charts. Inspired by his youth in the valley town of Modesto, California, Graffiti was George Lucas’ second feature film, and is a masterwork of vibrant colors, exciting soundtracks, and endearing characters. A story of coming-of-age, it remains one of the most successful films in history.
