Film Club Free Screening: Gonzo

The KPBS Film Club is having a free screening of Gonzo: The Life and Work of Hunter S. Thompson (Magnolia Pictures)

Landmark Theatres, the KPBS Film Club of the Air and Magnolia Pictures are holding a special advance screening of Alex Gibney's new documentary
Gonzo: The Life and Works of Hunter S. Thompson on Thursday June 26 at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas. Click here for your chance to get free passes to Gonzo.

From Oscar-wining director Alex Gibney ( Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room ) and producer Graydon Carter ( Surfwise, The Kid Stays in the Picture ) comes a probing look into the uncanny life of national treasure and gonzo journalism inventor Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. A fast moving, wildly entertaining documentary with an iconic soundtrack, the film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson's life-his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell's Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern's 1972 presidential campaign, and much more. Narrated by Johnny Depp. We have a limited supply of tickets so don't wait to request yours.
