Teens Taking Over Thursdays on TCM in July

School’s out, and that means teens are out in force. Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is making room for the invasion with teen movies every Thursday night in July. Each week’s collection will focus on a different theme, from juvenile delinquents and fun at the beach to teen romance and hits from the ‘80s.

TCM’s July slate of teen movies includes such memorable films as Rebel Without a Cause (1955), Blackboard Jungle (1955), Tammy and the Bachelor (1957), Rock Around the Clock (1956), Gidget (1959), Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), Bye Bye Birdie (1963) and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986). The roster also features TCM premieres of such films as the noir thriller Crime in the Streets (1956) and the popular 1980s movies Fame (1980), Risky Business (1983), Sixteen Candles (1984) and Better Off Dead (1985).
