Movie Loft ambles back to Shadowbox Studio in late April with a screening of the 1972 jewel 'Cisco Pike'. A dizzyingly superb cast including Kris Kristofferson, Karen Black, Gene Hackman, Harry Dean Stanton, Viva and others. The yarn follows Cisco Pike (Kristofferson, in his first leading role), a faded rocker and ex-dealer that gets set up by a crooked cop to sell a mountain of weed over one weekend.
The first film by director Bill Norton, and a bounty of LA sights and scenes, from footage at the Troubadour to the home-base of Cisco at Venice Beach. And speaking of the cast, it also includes Doug Sahm, Allan Arbus, Joy Bang, Antonio Fargas, and many more!
We'll complement the era and vibe with a batch of country-rock tunes, starting at 7 along with hot grilled wieners. Movie to roll around 8, more records afterwards.
