Night Flight: Born Again (with Stuart Shapiro and Larry Hankin in person!)

Live Set by DJ Totally Abuse

Night Flight—fuzzily remembered by ’80s punks who tuned in after stumbling home from shows, or, if you’re a little bit younger and had no boundaries, watched all night long at a Saturday night sleepover—represents the golden age of basic cable television. The variety program ran overnight on Fridays and Saturdays on the USA Network, and featured music videos, short films, documentaries, and animation like Bambi Meets Godzilla and Mr. Bill. And with MTV still in its infancy, Night Flight was the place to catch all the coolest punk and New Wave music videos” (AV Club). In conjunction with the release of subscription channel Night Flight Plus, join us for Night Flight: Born Again, a special big-screen tribute to what VH1 called “the single greatest rock omnibus program ever aired,” featuring nostalgic jewels from Ozzy Osborne, BB King, Wendy O Williams, Divine, Billy Idol, Johnny Rotten, and Frank Zappa, plus a special tribute to Prince and many more treasures from the archive.
