On June 25th of last year, News scored a podcast interview with Talia Shire and Robert Schwartzman on the 35th Anniversary restoration and re-release of the 1986 BMX film “RAD.”
Then, in July, we sat down with RAD screenwriter, Sam Bernard for the real-deal backstory on how the script came to be, and developed into a generational cult classic.
We have added the links to both interviews below, if you’d like to get some super-tasty behind the scenes backstory…the kind that we don’t get (or hear) everyday.
Now that theaters across the country have re-opened, Mr. Schwartzman has made-good his promise to bring the film, in all its restored glory back to the big screen–for one night only.
On the evening of Thursday, October 14, BMXers, and soon-to-be-BMX fans will settle in with some popcorn and a tanker of Mountain Dew, and see the story of how Cru Jones laid the smackdown on the factory stars.
We’ll be there…and we hope you will be as well.
