Caribe Theare can be seen directly in the backround towards the end of the 1976 film “Rockers”. This was a modern-day Robin Hood story with a happy reggae soundtrack and alot of Rastafarians smoking massive ammounts of marijuana. It also featured an all-star cast of reggae legends including Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, Richard “Dirty Harry” Hall,Jacob Miller,Gregory Issacs,Burning Spear,Kiddus I, Robbie Shakespeare.
