Free Movie: Rebel Without a Cause
James Dean's iconic performance highlights our free movie at the Orinda Theatre on April 13
On the second Thursday of every month, Diablo magazine partners with the good folks at Lamorinda Theatres by offering a free screening of a classic film at the gorgeous, Art Deco movie palace in downtown Orinda. This Classic Film Series draws hundreds of movie lovers every month—there is nothing quite like seeing a Hollywood classic projected on the big screen and sharing the experience with an audience.
Our April entry in the series is the 1955 smash, Rebel Without a Cause, starring James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, and Dennis Hopper. Dean's breakthrough role, directed by the great Nicholas Ray, is every bit as searing and mesmerizing today as it was more than 60 years ago. We picked Rebel Without a Cause because of its cameo in La La Land. It will be a great treat to show this iconic teen drama on the big screen at the Orinda.
Rebel Without a Cause will screen at the Orinda Theatre on April 13 at 7 p.m. Seating is first come, first serve, so please arrive early to find parking and best available seating. As always, Republic of Cake will provide cupcakes as prizes for our trivia quiz before the screening.
May's film will be Bonnie and Clyde—see you at the movies!
