Sunset Strip Movie With Ozzy Osbourne And Alice Cooper To Premiere March 16th
March 13, 2012
Sunset Strip: The Movie will make its premiere on March 16th at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas. The movie features cameos from artists such as Alice Cooper, Slash, Ozzy osbourne and Tommy Lee.
The Strip itself was born in the roaring ’20s as a dirt road connecting Hollywood studios to a new development called Beverly Hills. This “strip” between two cities fell just outside Los Angeles city limits, a no man’s land outside the reach of the LAPD, which gave free reign to both creative and dark forces. Generations of great artists were inspired here and great art was created here, right along side notorious speakeasies, nightclubs, casinos, brothels, and opium dens. It is truly a mix of light and dark, sunshine and noir, that is uniquely L.A.
Of course, when limits are pushed this hard, crash and burn is inevitable. Up and down cycles come fast and furious. So it’s no surprise when tragedy strikes and the death of The Strip is pronounced. It’s been that way since the very beginning. But the lights always come back on and suddenly she’s alive and kicking with another burst of creative energy for a new generation. The Strip remains true to her nature and her calling as ground zero for the biggest sounds, images, and cultural movements to echo around the world.
Today, huge tectonic shifts in the music industry have energized live music and music venues, so a new generation of idealistic artists, fans, and club owners are using that energy to make Sunset Strip their own, forging their own history, just like all the generations before them. Something fresh and cool is brewing!
Johnny Depp, Keanu Reeves, Mickey Rourke, Ozzy Osbourne, Courtney Love, Sharon Stone, Pamela Des Barres, Alice Cooper, Hugh Hefner, Perry Farrell, Peter Fonda, Sofia Coppola, Tom Arnold, Slash, Richard Lewis, Paul Mooney, Dita Von Teese, Paris Hilton, Lou Adler, Tommy Lee, Billy Corgan, and Lemmy, along with historians, authors, former mobsters, kids who call it their playground, and families who call it home… all come together to take us way beyond a rock documentary and down the rabbit hole into a fascinating world called SUNSET STRIP.
Los Angeles filmmaker/musician Hans Fjellestad has screened in theaters, galleries, and festivals throughout the world and on television networks including Showtime, MTV, Adult Swim, PBS, and BBC. Hans directed the feature docs “Sunset Strip”, “Moog”, “Frontier Life”, “When The World Breaks” and wrote/produced “The Heart Is A Drum Machine”.
