Gen X Cinema Double Feature: Dazed & Confused and Half Baked
4/21/2018, starts 7:00 PM

The GenX Cinema series presents a double feature celebrating 1990’s comedies, with “Half Baked” and “Dazed and Confused,” screening on Saturday, April 21 at 7:00 pm at the Soper Reese Theatre in Lakeport. Entry is by donation. No host beer bar will be open; additional refreshments will be on sale at the concession stand including popcorn and candy.

Dave Chapelle is a comedic genius, and he's also a notorious stoner, so it’s only fitting that his film, “Half Baked,” is the quintessential cannabis celluloid anthem. Chapelle's leading-man charisma, a solid supporting cast, and a plethora of witty jokes keep the comedy coming.

Richard Linklater’s “Dazed and Confused” is an affectionate look at the youth culture of a bygone era, starring Jason London, Joey Lauren Adams and Milla Jovovich.  It's the last day of high school, somewhere in Middle America, the summer of 1976, and the beer busts and hi-jinks are about to begin. There's a knowing, sympathetic and witty spirit about the film that makes you laugh as you wince.

“Half Baked” was made in 1998, is rated R, with run time of 1 hour 22 minutes. “Dazed and Confused” was made in 1993, is rated R, with run time of 1 hour, 43 minutes. The films are sponsored by Michael Green, and are jointly presented by the Lake County Theatre Company and the Soper Reese Theatre. The Soper Reese Theatre is located at 275 S. Main St., Lakeport, 707-263-0577, soperreesetheatre.com.
