'70s Summer Cinema: Shampoo

Wednesday, July 8 at 7 pm

Politics. Power. Scandal. The ‘Me’ Decade. Disco. Funny pants. However one defines the ‘70s, no definition is complete without the films from and about this pivotal era. This film series will explore American social and political life in the 1970s. Presented with longtime film critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Carrie Rickey.

About Shampoo (USA, 1975, 109 min.)
This sassy, saucy satire takes place on the eve of the 1968 election. Richard Nixon is about to be elected, which will set the stage for the fraught political decade that follows. Meanwhile, George Roundy, a charming and charismatic Beverly Hills hairdresser is more interested in his happy life filled with fun and beautiful women. When he decides to pursue his dream of opening his own shop, he will do whatever it takes to make that dream come true. Warren Beatty co-wrote, produced, and stars alongside Julie Christie and Goldie Hawn in this adult comedy box office smash, directed by Hal Ashby, best known for Harold and Maude (1971), Coming Home (1978), and Being There (1979). Rated: R
