San Marco gets THRASHIN’ this weekend for the midnight movie…

“As a story, Thrashin’ is basically a remake of West Side Story, with much of the plot and character interaction modeled after this contemporary American musical version of  Romeo and Juliet. This is not surprising when you discover that the director, David Winters, played one of the Jets in the Broadway and film versions of West Side Story. But let’s face it, the storyline and even the dialogue isn’t the reason you watch a film like this. It’s for the photography and skateboard action scenes, not the plot. Josh Brolin has the look of a skateboard champion, and there is an on-screen chemistry between Brolin and Pamela Gidley that transcends their dialogue. Although is some attempt to introduce other characters in Corey’s circle and among the Daggers, and a few humorous bits, the film soon focuses on the triangle between Corey, Hook, and Chrissy. There is a good selection of skater music, and an early video appearance of the Red Hot Chili Peppers that give the film authenticity. But this film is really a symphony of skater moves and multiple chucks shots, a real period piece of the L.A. skater scene in the mid eighties. That is the basis for someone to enjoy Thrashin’.”

Thrashin plays August 3rd and 4th at midnight at the San Marco Theatre. Bring in your Kona Skatepark receipt and get a buck off admission.
