Upcoming Classic Movie

The Cerrito Classics series will resume on September 23 at 7:00 p.m. with “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” We look forward to seeing you there.

“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” (1982) at the Cerrito on Thursday, September 23 at 7:00

The Classics series is back!

After a long hiatus, Rialto Cinemas Cerrito is resuming the monthly classic movie series, starting with “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

This movie follows the misadventures of a group of high school students. There’s inexperienced sophomore Stacy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who longs for romance, her best friend Linda (Phoebe Cates) who tries to help, “Rat” (Brian Backer), who has a job at a movie theater as assistant to the assistant manager, overconfident Mike (Robert Romanus) who makes money scalping concert tickets, popular Brad (Judge Reinhold), whose main ambition is to pay off the loan on his 1960 Buick LeSabre and to get out of his relationship with girlfriend Lisa (Amanda Wyss).

Then there’s Spicoli (Sean Penn), a stoner and wannabe surfer whose main purpose in life seems to be to get under the skin of strict teacher Mr. Hand (Ray Walston).

“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” features a lot of Hollywood talent early in their careers. The screenplay was Cameron Crowe’s first, and it was Amy Heckerling’s directorial debut. It was only the second movie for Sean Penn, Phoebe Cates, and Forest Whitaker. Jennifer Jason Leigh had been in only two movies before this one, and Judge Reinhold had been in only three.

“Fast Times at Ridgemont High” will play only once at the Cerrito, on Thursday, September 23 at 7:00 p.m. Please note that this is the fourth Thursday of the month. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as the movie may sell out. All seats are $9.50. Arriving early is a good idea if you plan to buy food or drinks.

By the way, you can have a pizza delivered to your seat, just like Spicoli! Just order it at the concession stand, and the Cerrito staff will deliver it to you in the theater. If you’d prefer, you can get a salad, a burger, or any other item from the Cerrito menu. No matter what you order, we’re sure Spicoli would approve.

Upcoming Classics

Cerrito Classics usually play at 7:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month, but in October it will be on the third Wednesday. The price is $9.50 for all seats.

Coming up soon:

  • “An American Werewolf in London,” Wed., October 20 at 7 p.m.
  • “Charade,” Thurs., November 18 at 7 p.m.
  • “Elf,” Thurs., December 16 at 7 p.m.

Important Announcement

Starting on Wednesday, September 15, Rialto Cinemas Cerrito will require proof of vaccination for all attendees age 12 and up. Please read the details of the policy here, on the Rialto web site.
