The rise and fall of the punk rock movement is
epitomized in The Rise and Fall of the Clash (2012) Danny Garcia's
documentary about "the only band that mattered," or at least it did during its
glory days from 1976 to 1983. But after achieving worldwide success and
releasing at least one immortal album - 1979's London Calling - the Clash, like so many bands before and since,
succumbed to internal squabbling, drugs, poor judgment, and general exhaustion.
Featuring rare unseen footage of the band, the film screens with the director
in attendance at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St, Arlington | Thursday, July 12 @ 7:30 pm | $10;
$8 advance | 781.646.4849 or regenttheatre.com.
