Magic Trip at Hollywood Theater in Dormont Tonight....The Merry Pranksters Landmark Trip Across Country
I am very happy that I can go to this movie and "experience" the wild LSD fueled trip that is a landmark in American socio-cultural history...........without having to actually go on such a wild ride. This movie is pieced together from footage someone shot during the trip of Ken Kesey (author of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Neil Cassaday and the Pranksters trip across the U.S. in 1964. It has had great reviews!
The Post Gazette notes: "At 29, Ken Kesey, "one of America's greatest writers," led a scruffy band on "a bus trip across America that changed everything," declares narrator Stanley Tucci. Their search for themselves and America was largely conducted on LSD."

NOTE The movie is at the Hollywood Cinema in Dormont tonight at 7 NOT at the Melwood Cinema. The latter is an error in the Post Gazette story.
