#TBT at the Laemmle: Rock ‘N’ Roll High School

October 13, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

“On behalf of the students from Vince Lombardi High who are here tonight, I’d just like to say one thing: Screw you, Principal Togar, we made it to the concert anyway!”

Set in 1980, Vince Lombardi High School keeps losing principals to nervous breakdowns because of the students’ love of rock ‘n’ roll and their disregard for education. Their leader, Riff Randell (P. J. Soles), is the biggest Ramones fan at Vince Lombardi High School. She waits in line for three days to get tickets to see the band, hoping to meet Joey Ramone so she can give him a song she wrote for the band, “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School”.

When Principal Togar takes her ticket away, Riff and her best friend Kate Rambeau have to find another way to meet their heroes—by winning a radio contest. When Miss Togar and a group of parents attempt to burn a pile of rock records, the students take over the high school, joined by the Ramones, who are made honorary students. When the police are summoned and demand that the students evacuate the building, they do so, which leads to a quite literal explosive finale.
