CUSACK ATTACK! (Better Off Dead & One Crazy Summer)

By Mahoning Drive-in Theater (other events)

Saturday, June 10 2023 6:00 PM 11:30 PM EDT

On Saturday, June 10th, get ready for a CUSACK ATTACK, as we present two 80s teen comedy classics starring John Cusack and directed by Savage Steve Holland!

First up is the cult classic BETTER OFF DEAD (1985), starring Cusack as Lane Meyer, dumped by his girlfriend (Amanda Wyss) for the captain of the ski team,  and often escaping into a fantasy world only slightly nuttier than the one around him. 

Featuring Diane Franklin as the French exchange student next door, E.G Daily as the coolest prom singer of the 80s, and Curtis Armstrong as longtime high school student and dispenser of wisdom Charles De Mar. Infinitely quotable and endlessly hilarious, a living cartoon that hits the highs and lows of high school in the 80s and beyond!

Then Cusack and Holland re-team and head to Nantucket for ONE CRAZY SUMMER (1986)! This time out, Cusack is a shy cartoonist who teams up with his oddball pals to help local musician Demi Moore save her family land from evil preppie developers!  Fast, funny, and filled with trademark Savage Steve Holland irreverence, it’s a lost 80s summer classic to savor under the stars!

So come on out and have a CUSACK ATTACK!
