TWISTER

We honor the late, great Bill Paxton with a special rooftop screening of ultimate summer blockbuster TWISTER, a stormchasing epic shot partly in Iowa!

"An expert in making audiences squirm and twist, at making us feel the rush of experience right along with the actors, De Bont choreographs action and suspense so beautifully he makes it seem like a snap." -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

A mile-wide, 300 miles-per-hour force of total devastation is coming at you! In this adventure swirling with cliffhanging excitement and awesome special effects, Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton play scientists pursuing the most destructive weather front to sweep through mid-Americas Tornado Alley in 50 years. By launching electronic sensors into the funnel, the storm chasers hope to obtain data to create an improved warning system. But to do so, they must intercept the twisters' deadly path. The chase is on!
