Pulp Fiction

Thursday, May 2
7 PM

Twenty-five years ago, Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction burst onto the big screen with an unmistakable Dick Dale surf-guitar riff. Featuring now-legendary performances by Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Uma Thurman, and John Travolta, this graphic crime drama won the Palm D’Or at Cannes and put then-30 year-old Tarantino on the filmmaking map. Shot on location in Los Angeles, the film’s urban locales and eclectic soundtrack – with the likes of Kool & the Gang, Al Green, and Chuck Berry – make obvious why Time magazine named the flick one of the 100 best films of all time.
