Runaways movie posterFriday, August 6th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself—and so do its two leads. The film chronicles Joan and Cherie's tumultuous relationship on and off stage, as the band starts to break out. Rated R.
