The Weather Underground 10/3

“The Weather Underground” opens Friday, October 3rd for a one week run

9:00 nightly; 3:30, 7 & 9:00 Saturday and Sunday.

The most radical of all the groups formed in protest of the war in Vietnam, Weather Man was also media-savvy, and its spokespeople–who were almost without exception young and photogenic–were always in search of the perfect media moment.
