Fast Times at Ridgemont High in 35mm

Duration: 93 Rated R Director: Amy Heckerling
Fast Times at Ridgemont High

The most outrageous, era-defining comedy of its time is Universal Pictures’ FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH. In August 1982, more than a decade before she wrote and directed CLUELESS, filmmaker Amy Heckerling made her directorial debut alongside first-time screenwriter and future Oscar winner Cameron Crowe (ALMOST FAMOUS) with this iconic, inside view of teenage American life. The all-star cast includes future Academy Award winner Sean Penn, future Oscar nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold and Ray Walston. FAST TIMES also marked the film debut of future Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage and co-starred future Emmy winner Anthony Edwards (ER) and future Oscar winner Forest Whitaker. This hilarious portrayal of Southern California high school students and their favorite subjects— sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll—features a classic soundtrack that includes hits from The Go-Go’s, Oingo Boingo, and The Cars. Four decades later, Universal Pictures’ FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH remains as bold, daring and funny as it was a generation ago.

Screening as a 35mm double feature with Flashdance as part of the IFFBOSTON Hot Summer Nights film series.
