Footloose This Friday August 21

Fresh Air Flicks this week is playing "FOOTLOOSE". Refreshments and snacks will be available as always. Starts at dusk and don't forget to bring your chair

Footloose - 1984
Directed by: Herbert Ross
Starring: Kevin Bacon, Lori SInger, John Lithgow, Chris Penn

Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can't quite believe he's living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. There is one small pleasure, however: Ariel, a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous boyfriend. and a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople.

The main character is "teenager Ren"? I wonder if downtown's REN will show up.
