Sunset Strip

Please choose a format above.

Sunset Strip is a classic Hollywood tale, in the sense that 1985 is now long enough ago to technically be considered “classic.” 

And it is VERY 1985. The protagonist is a breakdancing photographer - meaning he photographs breakdancers, not that he takes photographs while breakdancing. He rides around the Sunset Strip on a motorcycle, and he’s trying to help a friend keep his sleazy nightclub open in the face of organized crime. And just in case that still ain’t 1985 enough for ya, they threw in some hair metal and gratuitous background stripping!

More fun details: there’s a bar band who will make you pine for the Jeff Healey band of Road House fame. There’s a major character named Moran. Actual British music legend John Mayall is inexplicably here. And our photographer hero has a horny landlord who’s constantly trying to jump his bones. See, like we said, classic!

Grab a Members Only jacket, cue up a slimy saxophone solo, and join Mike, Kevin and Bill for the pure 1985 power of Sunset Strip!
