The Wraith is a film that was entirely shot in Tucson, AZ in the mid 80s, and has now become one of the best known cult classics from that era. This is your chance to watch the film again on the big screen, and meet the director of the film, Mike Marvin (who has not returned to Tucson since filming was complete in '86) for a Q&A after the film. Arizona Underground Film Festival doesn't ever do retro screenings, but since this is our 5th year we decided to make an exception for this awesome 80s cult classic.
Packard Walsh and his motorized gang control and terrorize an Arizona desert town where they force drivers to drag-race so they can 'win' their vehicles. After Walsh stabs the decent teenager Jamie Hankins to death for being intimate with a girl whom Walsh wants for himself, the mysterious Jake Kesey arrives, an extremely cool motor-biker with an invincible car. Jake befriends Jamie's girlfriend Keri Johnson, takes Jamie's sweet brother Billy under his wing and manages what Sheriff Loomis can not the methodical and otherworldly elimination of Packard's criminal gang.
This is a one time screening with a limited number of seats. Get your tickets today.
