Green Screen Film Series: Two-Lane Blacktop

Friday nights in July, pack a picnic, cruise by Terry Allen’s Road Angel sound sculpture, and catch classic films selected by the artist, featuring car chases, questionable choices, and road trips on the run.

Drag racing east from L.A. in a souped-up ’55 Chevy are the wayward Driver (James Taylor) and Mechanic (the Beach Boys’ Dennis Wilson), accompanied by a tagalong Girl (Laurie Bird). They challenge a Pontiac GTO–driving wanderer (Warren Oates) to a cross-country race, in possibly the greatest road movie ever made. (Directed by Monte Hellman, 1971, 103 min., R)
