‘Rebel’ and ‘Wailers’

In Films/Film stars,local news,music,show dates on September 12, 2009 by Editor Z

Just found out that things will really be happenin on the night of Thursday October 8th in the Valley. First off just eight days after the 54th anniversary of actor and icon of cool James Dean’s tragic death the second and perhaps best known of his three films (the last two released posthumously a year following his death) there will be a special screening of “Rebel Without a Cause” at the Amherst Cinema at 7PM.

The 1956 film follows the stories of a trio of confused adolescence. Jim (James Dean) is a troubled adolescent who has just moved to a new town with his parents seeking refuge from past demons and troubles. Judy (Natalie Wood) is the attractive girlfriend of the knife wielding drag racing boyfriend of a bully taunting Jim. Finally Plato (Sal Mineo) is the awkward loner largely orphaned by his parents seeking only friendship and family. The three converge on a night that turns into a tempestuous epic that will no doubt alter all forever.

Additionally that night at about 9PM at the Pearl Street nightclub in Northampton, members of the original Wailers (as in Bob Marley and the Wailers) will be performing. Tickets are $23.00.
