"Guaranteed to make you smile." –Entertainment Weekly

The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy 13-year-old white kid who's obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family's annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich local bullies and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. This movie is about that time in your life when you're treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you're as funky fresh as it gets.

DIR/SCR Michael Tully; PROD Jeffrey Allard, Brooke Bernard, Michael Gottwald, Lori Krein, Billy Peterson, George Rush, Ryan Zacarias. US, 2014, color, 92 min, DCP. NOT RATED.

    The online ticket purchase site says the movie is at 7:30. Is it really at 7:00?

    Sounds like a nice movie. Is this walking distance from Silver Spring Metro?

      Yes. The theater and metro are both on colesville road and a few blocks from each other.
