The Night of the Iguana
with Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir

Night of the Iguana is John Houston's masterpiece adaption of the Tennessee Williams play. A defrocked preist who's lost his faith, a lascivious widow, a lonely middle aged woman, a beautiful 17 year old nymphomaniac, a poet on the verge of death, and a gorgeous Mexican coastal paradise.They are united in that they are divided, in that they are all tortured souls seeking beauty, life, meaning and engaged in battles to stand tall, to live with integrity and love. On a hot, cloying night, a night of the iguana, when all their ropes snap taut, they meet. In glorious black and white.

Plus we'll be joined by Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir who will bring their own special entertaining blend of spirituality and activism. Throughout its seven year existence the Church of Stop Shopping has fought Starbucks, Disney, Walmart (to name a few) promoting independent businesses and gift, thrift and barter economies; encouraging the survival of our neighborhoods; and giving a voice to countless sweatshop workers worldwide.

Re: REV BILLY and NIGHT OF THE IGUANA at Guerilla Drive-In (6/2)

A quote from the wise and willful, spirited and spiritual Reverend Billy himself:

"We have wandered into a terrible moment. Another in a long line of great historical powers who torch the world is so doing, dreamily adolescent and irresponsible. Words like "Democracy" and "Freedom" are applied with the distortions that power allows. Nothing is more dangerous than the isolation of America, unseeing and inexperienced. We are in a dome, in a fluorescent big box full of
products created by suffering. All our views of the world are filtered by billionaires at the portals of a false environment. We must break
into their private property and introduce new imagery. We must be willing to embrace our counter-intuitive Holy Foolishness. Amen? AMEN!"

Uh, aren't we just going to be kicked out (again) by the cops? Does the current Guerilla movie folks know that the underground movie series ahs been kicked out from under the bridge three times in the last three years?
