Movie Night at DIESEL! "Across the Universe"


Movie night at Diesel, A Bookstore in LarkspurDIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur continues our Movie Night series. This time we'll be watching Across the Universe, on Wednesday, September 20th, at 6:30 pm. This event is free and all are encouraged to attend!

In commemoration of the closing of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, we have selected Across the Universe as our featured movie of the month as it closely reflects this groundbreaking, yet tumultuous, time.

Across the Universe is a love story set against the backdrop of the 1960s amid the turbulent years of antiwar protest, mind exploration, and rock and roll. The film moves from the dockyards of Liverpool and the creative psychedelia of Greenwich Village to the riot-torn streets of Detroit and the killing fields of Vietnam. The star-crossed lovers, Jude and Lucy are swept up into the emerging antiwar-counterculture movements. They are also joined by a small group of friends and musicians, with "Dr. Robert" and "Mr. Kite" as their guides. Tumultuous forces outside their control ultimately tear the young lovers apart, forcing Jude and Lucy--against all odds--to find their own way back to each other.
