Movie Loft presents
The Exiles
Stacks Image 9089
Movie Loft marches into March with a screening of the 1961 drama The Exiles. Following a group of young Native Americans through a night in the Bunker Hill section of a now-vanished Los Angeles, director Kent Mackenzie crafted a tale of carousing, isolation and freedom.

Featuring a nonprofessional cast playing versions of themselves, drinking and partying and flirting and fighting. Filmed in crisp black-and-white with an incredible depth, it is both haunting and gorgeous. And there's near constant music on jukeboxes and radios, propelling the players through the long night and into the dawn.

There will be lots of honkin' rock-and-roll and R&B blasted to match the musical landscape of the film. Records a-spinnin' and hot dogs a-grillin' at 7, movie starting just after 8!

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
