Grapes of Wrath Fri Jul 31 8:30pm


The Grapes of Wrath

Economic disaster, unemployment, bank repossession, homelessness, hunger, fear and hatred of immigrants- sound familiar? Add the Dust-bowl, labor camps, intrastate border cops and you've got 1930's America!

From Oklahoma and elsewhere, dispossessed farmers migrate westward to California. After terrible trials en route they become little more than slave labor. Among the throng are the Joads who refuse to knuckle under, struggling to survive and make their way in an increasingly unfamiliar and unfriendly world. A classic battle for justice and labor rights in the face of tyrannical bosses and brutal repression. Based on the classic and controversial novel; by John Steinbeck.

SANTA CRUZ GUERILLA DRIVE-IN is an outdoor movie theater under the stars that springs up in the fields and industrial wastelands. Beyond showing great movies and bringing a broad community together, part of our mission is helping reclaim public space and transforming our urban environment into the joyful playground it should be.

PLUS thrilling and funny short films, an intermission, great company and a guaranteed good time!

BRING blankets, pillows, anything you need to be comfortable in the great outdoors, friends, drinks and snacks and anything to share. Donations to support the project are more than welcome.

URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION: From downtown, head south on Soquel Avenue. At Riverside, by the Royal Taj, turn right. Follow the path down to the sandy area under the bridge.
