UnCAGED: Vol. 3 – 80s Edition


Lock up your daughters, infants, fiancés, and secretaries, UnCAGED is back with Volume 3, wherein we celebrate the master of Western Kabuki during the decade he came up: the 1980s. Shedding his ensemble roles and emerging as a bonafide leading man, Nicolas Cage ushered in the eighties with genre re-defining masterworks, including the crown jewels of romcoms (VALLEY GIRL & MOONSTRUCK); a beloved Coen Bros. caper (RAISING ARIZONA); and a depraved, satirical horror (VAMPIRE’S KISS). The ‘80s were a time of defining what “uncaged” would come to mean and offered some of the dreamiest, and yet also monstrous of Cage iterations. 


Presented without irony and with a respect for theatrical presentation, celebrate Cage in his 60th year on earth every Wednesday in March. On-site bonus: an in-cinema UnCAGED marketplace for all your Cage collectible needs, including last edition’s sold-out Cage Trading Cards from artist Keenan Tamblyn, Cage shirts and totes, limited edition posters, and more!  


Shedding his Coppola moniker and adopting the first ever “Cage” credit, Nicolas made his leading man debut in Martha Coolidge’s ultra-cool VALLEY GIRL. A neon-hued, fantastically soundtracked modern re-telling of Romeo & Juliet, in VALLEY GIRL Cage plays Randy, and post-punk teenager from Hollywood, wooing Julie (Deborah Foreman), a beautiful queen of the valley girls. Tension ensues when their opposing factions get in the way. 


Romantic, heartfelt, and simply one of the greatest romantic comedies to feature teens ever made, VALLEY GIRL is a must. Cage is at his ultimate dreamboat appeal here, complete with a bizarrely groomed V in his chest hair. (ALICIA FLETCHER & BRENDAN ROSS)
