Is the onslaught of the holiday season making you a bit nostalgic? Then head down to the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood on Wednesday the 12th for a 40th anniversary commemorative screening of the The Monkees' feature film, Head. It may not be hot cider and snowball fights, but original Monkees Davy Jones and Peter Tork will be there!

In addition to the seminal screening of Head in a rare 355mm print, there will also be a theatrical production of the Monkees' Emmy-winning TV series. Other expected appearances include actress June Fairchild, Columbia Pictures exec Steve Blauner, and maybe more - you never know!
