  • This event has passed.

Hey, hey, it’s the Monkees . . . being catapulted through one of American cinema’s most surreal sixties odysseys.

The brainchild of Bob Rafelson, making his directorial debut; his producing partner and Monkees cocreator Bert Schneider; and Jack Nicholson, a coscreenwriter on the project, HEAD was the fanciful beginning and ignominious end of the TV-bred supergroup’s big-screen career.

In it, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork become trapped in a kaleidoscopic satire that’s movie homage, media send-up, concert movie, and antiwar cry all at once.

A constantly looping, self-referential spoof that was ahead of its time, HEAD dodged commercial success on its release but has since been reclaimed as one of the great cult objects of its era.
