Kill Your Darlings at the Hillcrest 4:40 PM

"A true story of friendship, love and murder, Kill Your Darlings recounts the pivotal year that changed Allen Ginsberg's (Daniel Radcliffe) life forever, bringing him together with William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston) at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to their Beat Revolution. At Columbia, Allen finds stuffy tradition clashing with daringly modern ideas and attitudes—embodied by Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan), whom he first encounters shouting a scandalous passage from Henry Miller atop a library study table, and David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall), an older hanger-on who clearly resents Allen's position as Lucien's new sidekick. With his louche charm and androgynous blond beauty, Lucien is an object of fascination for shy, unsophisticated Allen, and soon he is drawn into Lucien's hard-drinking, reefer-smoking, jazz-clubbing circle of friends. But when David is found murdered, Ginsberg is faced with a stark choice: to betray himself and lie to the district attorney, or to write the truth—and condemn a friend."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
