50th Anniversary of American Graffeti


About This Event

A nostalgic look back at one night during the summer of 1962 in a small Northern California town. The movie follows around a group of teenagers just out of high school, cruising the streets enjoying their last precious moments of summer freedom. The academy award best picture nominee is a nostalgic look at the summer of 1962 in California’s Central Valley. The film is a favorite of car enthusiasts as the teenage cruising culture is the backdrop for this coming of age story. In 1995, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. “As a member of the Greenfield Moose Lodge, I love that the film is about the existential crises of the recipient of a college scholarship from the Moose Lodge.” Explains Mass. Ron Howard would go on to star in a very similar role the following year in Happy Days which though set a decade earlier appears to draw all its elements from American Graffiti.
