Nitehawk has also hosted special guests like Sean Young, Aida Ruilova, and Alan Cumming to introduce select films in the series but for one, our series debut of Easy Rider, Karen herself took the time to answer some of the biggest questions asked regarding the movie that marks a turning point in modern American cinema.

We thank all who came to support the series and, most of all, we thank Karen Black for giving culture something so incredible to celebrate.
