Predator (25th Anniversary screening!)

“Easily the tuffest/buffest/gruffest of ’80s sci-fi action, and a legendary call-to-arms against interplanetary meat harvesting.” – Zack Carlson, Alamo Drafthouse

A full-on macho heavyweight rager of intergalactic proportions! In a recent poll to determine the most (probably) scientifically accurate action blast, Scientific American unanimously announced the solid answer: John McTiernan’s amazing Predator. An all-star team of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers (Rocky, Action Jackson) & Jesse “The Body” Ventura (plus Commando veteran Bill Duke and Lethal Weapon scribe Shane Black) venture to the jungles of South America to prove once and for all that “if it bleeds, we can kill it.” Big men, big guns, camouflage facepaint, torn limbs and Oscar-nominated(!) effects work by Stan Winston highlight this mandatory big-screen brawler, which still kicks your puny ass twenty-five years on.
Dir. John McTiernan, 1987, 35mm, 107 min.
