Showing Next…Licorice Pizza
Ah, the 70’s! Teens growing up, running around, and falling in love in California’s San Fernando Valley from the mind and eyes of writer and director Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights). Party fun fact: Licorice pizza is slang for vinyl records, which have the appearance of shiny, black licorice and are the size of a small pizza. Also, a SoCal record store went by the name in the 70’s and 80’s.
