On Sat, September 23rd, celebrate the Hollywood icon who embodied the short-lived ’80s male ideal of tough love, grace, and fearless sensitivity better than anyone else by coming to Monty Hall for the Patrick Swayze Film Festival, curated by Station Manager Ken. Doors open at 3:30pm and the festival kicks off at 4pm with Red Dawn, a 1984 Cold War fantasy about commies invading the heartland, followed by Point Break (6:30pm), with Swayze as an extreme athlete and spiritual guide, and finally, Sawyze’s masterpiece, Road House (9pm), in which he cleans up an out-of-control bar as he delivers one life lesson after another. Buy tickets to individual films here, here, and here, or get a full festival ticket here. WFMU is crazy about Swayze!
