Grindhouse Dublin, in association with Light House Cinema, are proud to present Mark L Lester’s CLASS OF 1984

Grindhouse Dublin present a special screening of CLASS OF 1984 on Friday September 26th, at the Lighthouse Cinema Dublin…

CLASS OF 1984 is a cult 1982 Canadian action-thriller movie about a newly hired music teacher at a troubled inner city school, where students have to pass through a metal detector due to problems with gangs, drugs, and violence. It was directed by Mark L. Lester and starred Perry King as teacher Andrew Norris, Merrie Lynn Ross (who also co-executive produced) as his wife Diane Norris, Roddy McDowall as Terry Corrigan and Timothy Van Patten as Peter Stegman, the leader of the gang of thugs who terrorize the school.

It was one of Michael J. Fox’s early roles, before he was a well-established actor. It was a major box-office success for its time making more than 20 million dollars in the US alone on a budget of four and half million, and was the number one film in many countries worldwide on release.

The movie utilized the punk look and image that was becoming part of popular culture in the early 1980s. The movie’s theme song, “I Am the Future”, was performed by Alice Cooper. The film also features a performance by Canadian punk band Teenage Head. Get ready to be punk’d!!!
