The city is divided between teenagers who have grown up with wealth and privilege and the rough-edged “greasers” from the wrong side of the tracks. The greasers yearn for the life they see on the other side of town, but the rich kids want to keep them in their places. Then, one greaser dares cross the line to talk, and to dream of more, with a girl from across the tracks . . . an action that can only lead to conflict on a hot, steamy night.
Featuring Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Diane Lane, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell and Patrick Swayze, among others young actors who have since gone on to stardom.
This two day screening event will feature the 4K Restored version of the film, as well as a special on-screen introduction to the film by Director Francis Ford Coppola. The 4K Restoration was created using the original film negative, maintaining the highest level of visual quality as possible. This is Director Coppola’s preferred version of the film; there are an additional 22 minutes of footage, it includes a beginning and ending more true to the book, as well as a rousing rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.
