Summer of (Movie) Love, Peace & Understanding
Monterey Pop

Sun. July 30

(Doc. ~ 1967) 1 Hr. 18 Min. (Digital/Restored) In English

The State is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Summer of Love with a four-film series ~ and a fab party ~ that kicks off with the remastered and restored Monterey International Pop Festival. The first festival not only captured a decade’s spirit and ushered in a new era of rock and roll, it featured career-making performances by Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding plus the diverse cast included Simon and Garfunkel, the Mamas and the Papas, the Who, the Byrds, Hugh Masekela, and the extraordinary Ravi Shankar. D. A. Pennebaker captured it all, immortalizing moments that have become legend: Pete Townshend destroying his guitar, Jimi Hendrix burning his. Now, 50 years later, we return to a place and time the likes of which have never been seen, or experienced, again: The Summer of Love.  Next films: Valley of The Dolls (R-1967) on Sun. Aug. 6 at 2 p.m.; The Fearless Vampire Killers (G-1967) on Sun. Aug. 13 at 2 p.m.; and a party plus Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (PG-1978) on Fri. Aug. 18 at 6 p.m.

Admission: $8
