Movie Night!

Posted: June 26, 2015 in Uncategorized

Tonight on Subculture: It’s MOVIE NIGHT! Oddly, the set list was already planned before hearing of the death of James Horner. Obviously, he fits perfectly into tonight’s theme so we will honor his contribution to movies through his music. Also, hear music, quotes and trailers for from your favorite movies including Heathers, Sixteen Candles, and NL’s European Vacation.
