Wolverines! Final Swayze Summer Tonight! 

That's right Swayze-lovers, TONIGHT is your last chance to see the our man Swayze on the big screen at the Old Stone Church.

Tonight at 8 pm we'll screen Red Dawn, a raucous and ridiculously fun story about a band of teenagers who, in the aftermath of World War III, bring back American's resilience and honor.

Swayze was the ideal beefcake vehicle for this message; a perfect balance of dude (as exhibited in his subsequent role in Point Break) and doe-eyed and kind-hearted love interest (as shown in Dirty Dancing and Ghost).

Red Dawn
is a time capsule, bringing together two of the most important cinematic themes of the '80s—the alienated sense of teenagers (um, see The Outsiders, Pump Up The Volume and every John Hughes film) and Americans' Cold War paranoia about Russians (see, Rocky IV, Hunt For Red October, which started as a small publication out of Berkeley and quickly became a best-selling book and basis for a Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin blockbuster, but ignore Sting's cloying single, "Even The Russians Love Their Children").
