From Staff Reports 

A screening and critical discussion of the film “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” will be held at 7 p.m. March 27  at Grail Moviehouse, 17 Foundry St., in Asheville’s River Arts District. 

Part of the Music Movie Mondays series,  the program will take a deep look into the 1979 cult classic musical-comedy film that starred the Ramones. 

As always, program moderator Bill Kopp — briefly —  will introduce the film. At that point, the film, rated PG with a runtime of 93 minutes, will be screened. Afterward, Kopp, an Asheville-based author and music journalist, will engage the audience in a moderated discussion of the film. 

An event promotion noted, “‘Rock ‘N’ Roll High School’ spawned a cult following and the film soundtrack includes memorable tunes from DEVO, Brownsville Station, Alice Cooper, Todd Rundgren, Chuck Berry and (of course) the Ramones.”
