Pink Floyd The Wall Wiltern Rockin Pins

Our friends at Rockin Pins are sponsoring an upcoming screening of Pink Floyd: The Wall in Los Angeles and are giving you the chance to see this film for free! Buy any 2 Pink Floyd enamel pins in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood and get a free ticket to see The Wall at the Wiltern on Friday, January 25, 2019 (while supplies last). 

Pink Floyd: The Wall is a 1982 British live-action/animated musical drama film directed by Alan Parker with animated segments by political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe. Based on the 1979 Pink Floyd album of the same name, the film centers around a confined rocker named Pink, who, after being driven into insanity by the death of his father and many depressive moments during his lifetime, constructs a metaphorical (and sometimes physical) wall to be protected from the world and emotional situations around him. When this coping mechanism backfires, he puts himself on trial and sets himself free. The screenplay was written by Pink Floyd vocalist and bassist Roger Waters.

Rock on Film Series is a salute to the singers, writers and musicians who have created the poetry of our time at The Wiltern. Inspired by Bill Graham’s 18-day "Rock on Film" festival at The Wiltern in 1987, the folks at the Wiltern are bringing the legacy back to where it started.

This screening is all ages. A full bar for 21+ attendees and concessions will also be available for purchase. More info about the event here.

Enamel Pins

Enamel pins may be small but they carry a big message -- and a very high cool quotient. Adding a pin to your backpack or jacket is a subtle yet ultra hip way to rep your pop culture obsessions, whether it's the band that changed your life, the TV show you can't get enough of, the movie that inspired you to dive into cinema --- or your all-time favorite record store, of course. (Yes, we have special Amoeba pins.) You can find an unrivaled, ever-growing selection of pins to scratch every pop culture itch at all three Amoeba stores. You can also shop a somewhat more curated selection online under Merch.

Not only are these pins are a great way to show off your personality through fashion accessories, they're just plain fun to collect. You never know what one-of-a-kind finds you'll be able to pick up or what perfect stocking stuffers you'll find for the music heads on your shopping list. Come visit Amoeba Hollywood, Amoeba San Francisco or Amoeba Berkeley and see what we've got!
