Description

THURSDAY MAY 16 & FRIDAY MAY 17 JOHN CARPENTER DOUBLE FEATURE
ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK Thu 7:00; Fri 5:30, 7:30 NEW 4K RESTORATION!
In a future where Manhattan Island is now a maximum security prison, war vet outlaw Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is offered a reprieve if he can rescue the POTUS held captive within the walls of incarceration. Lee Van Cleef, Harry Dean Stanton, Adrienne Barbeau, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, and Isaac Hayes co-star in John Carpenter’s wild melding of the Eastwood and Hawks ethea. (1981, 99 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)

+ THE FOG Thu 8:55; Fri 9:25
4K RESTORATION! An ominous, glowing fog rolls over a small coastal town one hundred years after a mysterious shipwreck. When vengeful ghosts go on a killing spree, residents look for answers even as they try to survive. Imaginatively filmed in widescreen on Northern California locations, Carpenter’s spooky follow-up to his smash hit HALLOWEEN stars JC regulars Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, and Jamie Lee Curtis, with veterans Hal Holbrook, Janet Leigh, and John Houseman adding old-school cred. (1979, 89 min, 4K DCP ‘Scope)
