March 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$9
The Salida SteamPlant is proud to host a new series, Songs OnScreen. We invite all to take a tuneful journey each month with a performance-filled film profiling some of music’s biggest names, both past and present, or a story that is driven by the soul of the music. Monthly screenings take place the last Thursdays of each month (unless otherwise noted). A cash bar, popcorn, and concessions will be available. This month’s film will be on Friday the 29th of March.
This Month’s Film: Bad Reputation: A Joan Jett Documentary
Songs OnScreen is happy to bring you the 2018 documentary film BAD REPUTATION. With her inimitable singles “I Love Rock N’ Roll,” and “Bad Reputation” Joan Jett inspired a generation of young women to rock. She became mega-famous from the number-one hit, and that fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, influencing many musicians-both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands-with her style. The documentary gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene, and their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. Rated R.
Tickets are $9 available now at the SteamPlant Box Office or online here.
