Peter Fonda, Fast Cars, and Punk Rock, Too

While we're still thrilled that both "Bedknobs & Broomsticks" and the "Garbage Pail Kids" flick were two recent midnight movies around town, we're also glad to see that the next offerings lean more adult. Starting with...

"Dirty Mary Crazy Larry": The 1970s saw the zenith in movies featuring souped-up, outlandishly painted mean machines zooming around dusty roads while young kids in love evaded parents or school or responsibility or the law or all of the above. This flick peels out around the Golden State with an ultra-cool Peter Fonda at the wheel, and sexy Susan George at his side (yep, the same actress who dated Prince Charles back in the day). Friday, March 20, midnight. Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles


"Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten": The Clash just changed everything, not only in the realm of punk rock, but in larger cultural waters. Joe Strummer was the man at the helm of a band at the forefront, and years after his untimely death people still celebrate his contributions, not only on albums like "London Calling" but to musicdom at large. Director Julien Temple and a host of famous fans remember him in this tribute film; plus, the Fifth Story Tenants play live. Friday, March 20, midnight. The Art Theatre of Long Beach, 2025 E. Fourth Street, Long Beach
