Penelope Spheeris joins us LIVE for two nights to present THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION trilogy. We're also screening SUBURBIA, a masterpiece of not only punk cinema, but of the cinema of disaffected and alienated youth everywhere.

Directed by Penelope Spheeris
USA, 1988, DCP, 93 min., Color

-------------------------------------------------------

Seemingly a whole world away from the first film in the trilogy, DECLINE II takes us into the world of the hair-metal bands who populated the clubs of the Sunset Strip in LA. Spheeris presents the hilarious excesses of these would-be rock stars and finds some of the sadness and delusion that surrounds them, and their groupies as well. In addition to the young musicians and hangers-on, there is commentary from elder statesmen Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Ozzy Osbourne (riotously funny) among others.
