FREE "Cooley High" screening at The Highlander presented by Film Streams and Seventy Five North

Presented with & at Seventy Five North
The festivities are set to take place on the Highlander Community Lawn, 3003 Patrick Ave. Lawn seating opens at 7 pm, and the film starts at sundown.

This deeply felt recollection of adolescent life on Chicago’s near North Side, set in 1964, is based on episodes from the childhood of screenwriter Eric Monte (who also co-created TV’s “Good Times”). The story centers on two high-school seniors preparing for post-high-school life: Leroy “Preach” Jackson, who loves to read and aspires to be a Hollywood screenwriter despite rotten grades, and his best friend Richard “Cochise” Morris, a basketball star and suave ladies-man. With humor and realism, Cooley High chronicles their troubles with girls, school, and the police.
