101 60’s Movies Trivia Questions For The Grooviest Of Fans

Welcome to the sixties! Isn’t it just outta sight? The 60’s are famous for revolutionary music, outrageous fashions and home decor, and a counterculture struggling daily to bring peace and love to an intolerant and hostile society. Movies underwent many significant changes in this decade. With television growing more popular by the day, filmmakers and theater owners alike tried increasingly more eccentric tactics to lure viewers out of their homes and into the theater seats again.

In addition, the Hays Code, which had restricted what creators could include in their movies since 1934, was done away with in the 60’s. This means that films of the decade are characterized more than anything by increased freedom. Between experimentation in film techniques and storytelling, adaptations of old classics, movie theater gimmicks, and constantly pushing the boundaries of what a film could get away with portraying, there is always something interesting to find in these movies. You and your friends can use these 60’s movie questions and answers to see how much you know about them.
