"When it comes to saving the world, Bruce Willis is your man. Smarts and style, humor and courage!" -Los Angeles Times

"Are you classified as human?"
"Negative... I am a meat Popsicle."

In the 23rd century, a New York City cabbie, Korben Dallas (Bruce Willis), finds the fate of the world in his hands when Leeloo (Milla Jovovich) falls into his cab. As the embodiment of the fifth element, Leeloo needs to combine with the other four to keep the approaching Great Evil from destroying the world. Together with Father Vito Cornelius (Ian Holm) and zany broadcaster Ruby Rhod (Chris Tucker), Dallas must race against time and the wicked industrialist Zorg (Gary Oldman) to save humanity.

Despite the development of CGI whiz-bangery, director Luc Besson crafted many of his costumes and effects practically and detonated the largest indoor explosion ever filmed at the time. Join us for this can't-miss, big-screen rooftop blowout.
