Check Out VALLEY GIRL’s 30th Anniversary Event Tonight!

1983's Valley Girl

1983’s Valley Girl

Where were you in 1983 when Director Martha Coolidge’s landmark 1983 comedy Valley Girl hit theaters? Well as crazy as it sounds, this year marks its thirtieth anniversary. Nicolas Cage’s satellite dish-sized eyes and shambling time made their leading man debut as Randy, the amiable punk who falls for Julie (Deborah Foreman) when he and his best friend Fred (Cameron Dye) crash a San Fernando Valley party. Coolidge boils down Romeo and Juliet and reduces it to a power-pop confection about the class tensions between the distance that divides Los Angeles proper from the suburban wonderland on the other side of the hill.

The Beyond the Marquee producers are very close friends with Heidi Holicker who played “Stacey” in Valley Girl and we’re thrilled to announce this great Anniversary event where Heidi will be in attendance.

Cage’s shaggy assertiveness marked the beginning of the ’80s in film, and Coolidge packed the film solidly with a talented and eccentric cast that included Elizabeth Daily (her baby-smoky voice would provide a counterpoint to Paul Reuben’s determined arrested development in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and propel several animated series, including Rugrats), Quentin Tarantino repertory player Michael Bowen and, as Julie’s parents who refuse to let the sun go down on the ’70s, Fredric Forrest and Colleen Camp. Even co-writer/co-producer Wayne Crawford would go on to make his mark; for this group, as Modern English noted in a song that functions as the unofficial Valley Girl theme (and is now used in chocolate commercials), “The future’s open wide.”

Get into the 80′s spirit and dress up! Costume contest judged by director Martha Coolidge and reception to follow the screening.
