Fast Times at Ridgemont High 

When: Thu., March 24, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Personal Anecdote the First: Thanks to seeing Amy Heckerling's teen comedy classic, for years I thought Sean Penn's immortal line was "You nerd!" It was not. Personal Anecdote the Second: I was just in a rare book shop in Los Angeles that had a signed first edition of Cameron Crowe's original novel, based on true stories he found when he went back to high school undercover. It was inscribed with "Have a bitchin' summer" and cost $2,500, which is the only reason I didn't get it. But at least I can see this 35 mm print at the Galaxy Cinema, which kicks off their "The '80s Strike Back!" film series. Fast Times launched a number of major careers, including those of Penn, Judge Reinhold, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Forest Whitaker and more. Plus, there's a killer '80s soundtrack and, well Phoebe Cates. Mmm, Phoebe Cates. See it again, or say "Aloha" to it for the first time. Trust us, it's awesome, totally awesome. The screening is at 7 p.m.; tickets are $5. The person with the best '80s costume wins a free membership to the Galaxy Cinema. —Zack Smith
