Dazed and Confused Saturday, February 25, 2023 7 p.m.-9 p.m.
Presented by Eric Berger, Space City Weather
“It’s the last day of school in a Texas suburb. Bongs blaze, bell-bottoms ring, and rock ’n’ roll rocks. Among the best teen films ever made, Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused eavesdrops on a group of seniors-to-be and incoming freshmen. A launching pad for a number of future stars—notably Matthew McConaughey—Linklater’s first studio effort also features endlessly quotable dialogue and a blasting, stadium-ready soundtrack.” —The Criterion Collection
