It is the second decade of the 21st century. Corporations rule. And the world is threatened by a new plague…Join Dumpster Raccoon Cinema for William Gibson’s EERILY PRESCIENT cyberpunk dystopia JOHNNY MNEMONIC (1995)!


Hometown hero KEANU REEVES stars as a grimly determined data-carrier, whose head can hold as much as 80 gigs of data! But when he falls afoul of mega-corporation schemes and a payload too massive to survive, he must team up with Lo-Tek revolutionary J-Bone (Ice-T) and a cyborg assassin (Dina Meyer) before a fleet of yakuza and an extremely pissed off Dolph Lundgren can get what’s in his head! Also there is a dolphin.


A gritty sci-fi neo-noir carefully crafted by Neuromancer’s William Gibson, JOHNNY MNEMONIC crashed against Reeves’s SPEED box office success and subsequent studio interference, insisting on retooling a cool-headed punk satire into a straighter box office smash. But Gibson’s laser-cut precision is impossible to buff away, and the film still crackles with gum-cracking pizazz and sparky nineties cynicism – and some of the goofiest visuals you’ve ever seen!
