CinemAttack! pays homage to cult classic films, and they do it in style. Kicking off their first attack at the Art Theatre in Long Beach, the Dance Craze Dance Party! celebrates the 1981 2-Tone ska British music documentary—but this event is more than a typical screening. Legendary cinematic genius Joe Dunton participates in a brief Q&A and discusses his role in conceptualizing the visuals of Dance Craze, plus DJ Lawless sets the tone with a selection of ska classics for your skanking pleasure. While the atmosphere is geared towards being laid back (seating is available), dressing “sharp” is strongly encouraged. Check out the Dance Craze Dance Party for a night of dancing and potential sing-alongs in honor of the cult classic film.
