ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
1981, Rialto Pictures, 99 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

Kurt Russell delivers one of cinema’s most legendary performances as ornery, one-eyed Snake Plissken, a sentenced-to-die anti-hero sent into a maximum-security prison in a Manhattan of the future to rescue U.S. president Donald Pleasence from villain Isaac Hayes. A highly entertaining tall tale with influences ranging from comic books to apocalyptic sci-fi to spaghetti Westerns! With Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Harry Dean Stanton and Adrienne Barbeau.

THE WARRIORS
1979, Paramount, 93 min, USA, Dir: Walter Hill

One of director Walter Hill’s finest films assumes a dark, comic book style, following the Coney Island Warriors as they run for their lives after being fingered for the murder of a peacemaking gang leader. The gangbangers brave a gauntlet of ghetto booby traps, unseen marauders, unsympathetic cops and rabid, teen NYC wolf packs as they try to reach safe home turf. Tough-talking Michael Beck, James Remar and Deborah Van Valkenburgh lead a snarling young cast.


Special Ticket Price: $15 General. No vouchers. | Special Thanks to Harry Guerro for 35mm prints.
