Krull (30th Anniversary screening, star Ken Marshall in person!)

Journey into a mystical time and place — one which belongs to neither the past nor the present, where extraordinary creatures of myth work their incredible magic, and where a horrific, omnipotent Beast is the ruler. This is the planet of Krull — and it all comes to life in this visually spectacular fantasy tailor-made for teens fluent in prog-rock album covers, RPGs ‘n D&Ds. When Princess Lyssa is kidnapped by dark forces, Prince Colwyn must lead an unlikely band of thieves and misfits (including a Cyclops and a young Liam Neeson) to the rescue. As an adventure can only be as exciting as the villains encountered, Krull is bolstered by a panoply of rad, freaky monsters, from the silent stormtroopers with slithery alien worms inside their noggins to the epic stop-motion Crystal Spider, and the skyscraper-sized Beast to beat them all! Plus, did we mention the non-stop laser battles — and the ancient deadly boomerang that is the Glaive? Archival 35mm print! Plus, star Ken Marshall will be here in person for a Q&A after the film!
Dir. Peter Yates, 1983, 35mm, 121 min.
