The McCoppin Hub Plaza opened in August of 2014, transforming this former cul-de-sac into a vibrant and active new public gathering space. The plaza serves as a community gathering hub hosting music, food and cultural events.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension

Despite mixed reviews and a disastrous initial release that dumped the film into theaters for a week in the midst of the 1984 Summer Olympics, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eight Dimension went on to become one of the major cult films of the 1980s, developing a rabid following after its release on videotape. Drifting between satire and improbable sci-fi adventure, the film stars Peter Weller as Buckaroo Banzai, the son of an American mother and Japanese father who is a combination physicist, neurosurgeon, martial arts master, secret agent, and rock star who travels with his band of assistants/backing musicians, The Hong Kong Cavaliers.
