Staff Picks (past events)Repertory Series ArchiveReel Music



1983 • dir Penelope Spheeris w/Chris Pedersen, Bill Coyne, Jennifer Clay, Timothy O’Brien, Wade Watson, Flea • 94 min • DCP

The narrative directorial debut of Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization), SUBURBIA will kick your ass. Made after Spheeris’ phenomenal success with Decline, this nuanced look at a patchwork family of punks banded together against their bad parents and authority figures is made even radder by hammering live sets from SoCal hardcore legends D.I. and TSOL.

Staff Pick! Rachel: “TSOL rips in this. Watch Suburbia and then go home and binge The Decline of Western Civilization series.”

“The best movie ever made about punks.”
– Zack Carlson, co-author of Destroy All Movies
