The Rio Theatre’s Rio Grind Film Festival concludes on Sunday, November 28 with a screening of a slice of something seriously 80’s, the oft-requested, always capitalized, cult-classic RAD.
In celebration of its 35th anniversary, the 1986 BMX racing film has returned to theaters with a new 35th anniversary restoration. Bill Allen stars as a bicycle-motocrosser who tries to enter a corrupt promoter’s nationally televised cash-prize race. Also starring Lori Loughlin, Talia Shire, Jack Weston, and Ray Walston, along with 1984 Olympic gymnastics champion Bart Conner.
“Whooshing and swirling with mad abandon, Hal Needham’s teen flick is a blast of nostalgic joy.” (Screen Anarchy)
“Brimming with energy, passion, and an underdog spirit… there’s not a cynical note to be found in the absolutely delightful RAD!” (Cinapse)
