September 18 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Harrison Recreation Center
V Street, NW (between 13 & 14th)

The last movie of the U Street Movie Series will be The Legend of COOL “DISCO” DAN, a feature documentary narrated by D.C. native Henry Rollins that tells the story of Washington, D.C. in the 1980s through the eyes of D.C. graffiti legend, COOL “DISCO”DAN. Blending exclusive interviews with dozens of local and national celebrities along with archival footage, Washington natives offer the most comprehensive portrait to date on this critical decade. The development of Go-Go, D.C.’s distinctive style of urban music, racial tensions, crews, sensationalist media, crack, and graffiti are important pieces of this story. Graffiti historian Roger Gastman and filmmaker Joseph Pattisall spent over ten years researching and documenting the unknown stories of COOL “DISCO” DAN’s D.C. for the project.

We will have DJ Harry Hotter (spinning 80s gogo, funk bombs and roto-toms!)”
