"2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of EASY RIDER, a movie that inspired generations of riders by making the freedom of the open road synonymous with motorcycle riding. To celebrate this iconic movie, Monday at the Movies and Rialto will host a special screening Monday, August 19th, 7 PM. Tickets available at our box office anytime we are open (weekdays after 6 PM, sat/sun after 1 PM and between 1 and 330 wed/fri). Tickets just $5! Visa, MC and cash accepted. 

"50 years after laying claim to changing the face of the movie industry, Dennis Hopper's groundbreaking look at the late 1960s in America, Easy Rider, is back. A film that remains vibrant and influential even half a century later, Easy Rider became a statement for an entire disillusioned generation when it was released in 1969.

The film received Oscar nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Jack Nicholson) and In 1998, Easy Rider was added to the National Film Registry, and the iconic movie is also part of the American Film Institute’s list of 100 best American films."

“In 1969, I went looking for America,” said star Peter Fonda, who co-wrote the film with Terry Southern and director Dennis Hopper. “Fifty years later, I’m still looking.”
