"DOMO ARiGATO, MR. ROBOTO!" Five-Film Fest

(ONLY $13 FOR one or ALL FIVE FILMS!)

2:30pm - WESTWORLD (1973)
domo
Written & Directed by Michael Crichton
Containing: Yul Brenner, James Brolin, Richard Benjamin
Michael Crichton's early Sci-Fi films are some of the most stunning films to belong in the genre. And while many of them have inspired many of our favorite entries (TOTAL RECALL, BACK TO THE FUTURE 3, THE TERMINATOR) WESTWORLD may be the greatest of them all. As a couple of guys go on a futuristic vacation back to the ol' Wild West, what should be the time of their lives turns into hell on earth where computers don't always do what they're told. Be prepared to become a Yul Brenner superfan! 88 min. New 35mm Widescreen Print Courstesy of MGM.

4:45pm - THE TERMiNATOR (1984)
domoWritten & Directed by James Cameron
Containing: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Michael Biehn

James Cameron kicked his career into high gear with this relentless sci-fi exploitation masterpiece. While the sequels emphasize SFX, this lil' meanie will creep inside your psyche heightened by a terrifyingly ruthless performance by Schwarzengger, a deliciously desperate Michael Biehn & Linda Hamilton's drop dead transformation from clueless waitress to messiah. Throw in one of the best synth-soundtracks of the 80s and you should be crying by now. Preceded by a ton of existential sci-fi trailers. 108 min. New 35mm Print Courtesy of MGM.

6:30pm - ROBOCOP (1987)
Screenplay by Ed Neumeier; Directed by Paul Verhoeven
Containing: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herily, Miguel Ferrer, Ray Wise
domoPaul Verhoeven's first American film is one of the most subversive and disturbing movies of the 1980s yet somehow it's satire seems as accessible as a Saturday Morning Cartoon. Come on out for this gorgeous 35mm screening and take a re-look at what this super-robot-cop actually is fighting for! Warning: Extreme sound effects, violence and jaw dropping SFX by Rob Bottin & Stephen Dupuis! Preceded by obscure sci-fi trailers & upcoming M4M events. 102 min. New 35mm Print Courtesy of MGM.

9:45pm - Transformers: THE MOVie (1986)
Written by Ron Friedman; Directed by Nelson Shin
Containing the voices of Peter Cullen, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Idle, Scatman Crothers, Judd Nelson, Robert Stack and Orson Welles

domoThis near-perfect animated feature which came out in between 2nd & 3rd Seasons of the animated TV show, hypnotized and traumatized the few thousand kids that were even allowed to see it in the theatre. Now it's time for a whole new era to experience it on the big screen on an EXTREMELY RARE 35MM PRINT!! Combining Japanese anime and American animation, be prepared to be overwhelmed by hundreds of characters, a script that is still more complex than most modern trilogies and a climax that sincerely altered a whole generation! Did I mention this is Scatman Crothers & Orson Welles' final film? If they only realized how spectacular of a farewell this truly was. Preceded by a gaggle of 1980s animated feature films! 86 min.

EXTREMELY RARE 35MM SCREENING!! BUY TIX IN ADVANCE (on sale soon) CUZ YOU MAY NEVER GET ANOTHER CHANCE TO SEE THIS IN A THEATRE

11:45pm - "SURPRISE SECRET FILM"
TOO MUCH (1987)
machoDirected by Eric Rochat
Containing: Bridgette Anderson
What better way to round out the evening than with a Secret Surprise Film!? If you make it all the way to the fifth and final film, you will be rewarded with one of the most obscure, least heard of Robot films of the 1980s! Preceded by kiddie robot trailers. The only hint I can give you is that it's NOT AVAILABLE on DVD!
