July 4 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
A double dose of Snake Plissken, the deadliest man alive
About ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
The world’s greatest leader is taken hostage in the most dangerous place on Earth. Now, only the deadliest man alive can save him.
Kurt Russell is many things: charismatic, handsome, humorous…but THE one thing he possesses that all else covet is TRUE CINEMATIC POWER! There are men with more muscles, and there are men who can take bigger beatdowns, but no man will transfix you quite like the perfectly squared grizzled jaw of THE MAN amongst men, Kurt Russell. He’s a man so tough he came out of his mother’s womb and snapped his doctor’s neck for looking at him funny.
Russell’s first team-up with John Carpenter is arguably his best. The government enlists hardened criminal skull-basher, Snake Plissken, to travel to the blood-thirsty maximum security prison island known as “Manhattan,” where he has has less than 24 hours to save the President of the United States and get back…or he’s a dead man. With a supporting cast of all-around bad asses including Harry Dean Stanton, Lee Van Cleef, Adrienne Barbeau, Ernest Borgnine, and Isaac Hayes, this movie is guaranteed to set your eyeballs on fire.
About ESCAPE FROM L.A.
This time, a cataclysmic temblor hits Los Angeles, turning it into an island. The president views the quake as a sign from above, expels Los Angeles from the country and makes it a penal colony for those found guilty of moral crimes. When his daughter, part of a resistance movement, steals the control unit for a doomsday weapon, Snake again gets tapped to save the day.
