OSCAR SEASON AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE 2016
Double Feature! George Miller In Person!
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD / MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR

George Miller’s wild ride through the movies began with MAD MAX in his native Australia in 1979; since then, Miller's wide-ranging film and TV resume has included drama, documentary and family films such as the animated Oscar-winner HAPPY FEET.

Discussion between films with director George Miller, moderated by Drew McWeeny.
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
2015, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow, 120 min, Dir: George Miller

More than 30 years beyond THUNDERDOME, George Miller (Academy Award nominee for Best Director) revisits his post-apocalyptic demolition derby. Tom Hardy takes the reins as drifter ex-cop “Mad” Max Rockatansky, whose wasteland survival skills are matched by those of Charlize Theron as Furiosa; together they hope to liberate the wives of the tyrannical Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne – original MAD MAX baddie the Toecutter) in Miller’s critically acclaimed, non-stop thrill ride.


35 mm!

MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR
1982, Warner Bros., 94 min, Australia, Dir: George Miller

Hockey mask-wearing Lord Humungus whips his speed freaks into a frenzy, while Road Warrior Mel Gibson tries to save the remnants of civilization in director George Miller’s lean, mean, thrill machine.


Tickets: $16 General, $12 Members. No vouchers. Screening formats: DCP (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD), 35mm (MAD MAX 2: THE ROAD WARRIOR)
