Event Description

1987, dir Paul Michael Glaser w/Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso, Yaphet Kotto, Jim Brown, Jesse Ventura, Richard Dawson, 101 min, DCP

Set in 2019 after the a global economic meltdown has left the U.S. under a totalitarian regime, THE RUNNING MAN features Schwarzenegger as a government scapegoat sent to compete on a deadly reality TV game show.

“[Schwarzenegger’s] appeal was universal. Like the disaster film, he returned cinema to its fairground origins, embodying the notion of the movie star as an expensive expanse of well-lit torso. His freakish, seemingly indestructible body was, as Time magazine would observe, ‘its own stunning special effect.’ He was the blockbuster given human—or at least humanoid—form.” – J. Hoberman, Make My Day: Movie Culture in the Age of Reagan

A "Double Feature" ticket additionally allows admission into the 2:30PM screening of THE TERMINATOR. No additional purchase is necessary.
