Bad Reputation: A Joan Jett Documentary

A special one-night-only engagement with an exclusive, brand new solo performance by Joan made specifically for this screening. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene and the rocky road to rock stardom decades on.

It’s true, Joan Jett became mega-famous from the number-one hit "I Love Rock n Roll," but thats only part of the story. That fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV, world tours and many hits to follow like "I Hate Myself for Loving You," but that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, starting her record label out of the trunk of a car after being rejected by  23  labels,  and  influencing  many  musicians—both  her  cohort  of  punk  rockers  and  generations  of  younger  bands—with  her no-b.s. style. Their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: Even though people tried to define Jett, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.
