Good Records screens ‘The Runaways’ tonight

If you’re one for rock ‘n’ roll films and free Lone Star Beer (yes, please), Monday night is your night. Good Records on Lower Greenville has been hosting Good Films: Music Movie Mondays throughout July and tonight, they screen a double feature of The Mayor of Sunset Strip and The Runaways. The latter, of course, features Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart as our favorite butch rocker Joan Jett in “the world’s first all-girl teenage rock band.”

Jett’s never discussed her orientation, but did comment to NY Daily News on the film’s depiction of the lesbian love scene between her and bandmate Cherie Currie, played by Dakota Fanning. Really, we’re just stunned that Dakota Fanning is old enough to be playing such scenes. Nonetheless, Jett has been good to the community, whether she’s singing about woman-to-woman love on “A.C.D.C.” or playing the Northalsted Market Days in Chicago this August. We get it.

The Runaways screens first at 8 p.m. Good Records will also be giving away movie merch. If you snag an extra poster, I’d totally take it off your hands. Just sayin’.
