Nitehawk’s COUNTRY BRUNCHIN’ presents GAS FOOD LODGING as part of our special “SHE MADE IT” series. A 35mm presentation with a live pre-show serenade by LI’L MO!
Allison Anders’s Gas Food Lodging picks up in a dusty New Mexico town populated by a few waitresses, gravediggers and bored teenagers. Sisters Shade and Trudi cope with the boredom in different ways: Trudi rebels against just about everything, while Shade escapes into fantasies at the movies – but both of them share a desire to get out of dodge. But even in a single stoplight town, both young women are able to find love and heartbreak by the barrel load.
Part of Nitehawk’s September SHE MADE IT brunch, midnite, and special event series.
