Silo City Blockbuster: ROCKY III + CREED

July 2nd, 2016
Rocky III: 9pm
CREED: 11pm
@ Silo City Meadow (map)

Squeaky Wheel invites you out to its annual outdoor blockbuster double-feature! Just in time for the fourth of July, Squeaky Wheel will present two films from the ongoing saga of families Balboa and Creed. Charting the development of the friendship between Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), Rocky III (1982) has Apollo takes on his former rival as his apprentice to defeat the snarling Clubber Lang (Mr. T). Their friendship resonates years later in 2015’s critically-acclaimed Creed, as Apollo’s son, Adonis (Michael B. Jordan), seeks out the retired, aged Italian Stallion (Stallone) as his own trainer, as the young Creed attempts to break free of his fathers shadow. Bring out your blankets, lawn chairs, and star-striped shorts for two classic American tales of friendship, beating the odds, beating their fears, and beating each other.
