The Secret Cinema
at Moore College of Art & Design presents
A Walk on the Soft Side:
Films of the Beach Boys and Friends

“On Saturday, March 26, the Secret Cinema at Moore College of Art & Design will present our first screening in several years centered on rock music, when we show A WALK ON THE SOFT SIDE: FILMS OF THE BEACH BOYS AND FRIENDS.  The program, sure to be welcomed by those rediscovering the charms of the “sunshine pop” and “soft rock” genres, features difficult to find footage from lost television specials and educational films. Much of the program features the Beach Boys, but there are also rare appearances by the Fifth Dimension, Jimmy Webb, Johnny Rivers, Merrilee Rush and others.”

Visit the Secret Cinema homepage for program details.

UPDATE 3/22/11
Dennis Diken, drummer for the Smithereens and noted authority on the Beach Boys, has been added as a guest speaker.  See you there.
