Big Trouble in Little China (30th Anniversary Screening!)

Big Trouble in Little China (30th Anniversary Screening!)

It’s all in the reflexes…

As part of our Kurt n’ Carpenter Triple Feature on Saturday, August 13 we’ll be having a special 30th Anniversary screening of John Carpenter‘s insanely fun and totally 80s martial arts action classic Big Trouble in Little China. Carpenter “muse” Kurt Russell stars as all-American trucker Jack Burton, who agrees to take his friend Wang Chi on a trip to the airport to pick up his beautiful, green-eyed fiancee – but along the way finds himself involved in a crazy, supernatural ancient Chinese battle that pits the forces of good against evil. Russell really shines here as an (almost) over-the-top, lovably macho leading man with a penchant for cartoonish dialogue; between his scene-stealing performance and the glorious levels of movie craziness on screen, Big Trouble in Little China still feels like a cross between a B-movie and a comic book – in the best way possible. Also starring Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun and James Hong.

“Brimming with energy and packed with humor, Big Trouble in Little China distills kung fu B-movies as affectionately as it subverts them.”Rotten Tomatoes

Wayne’s World 2

To mark our run of the new documentary LIVE FROM NEW YORK (June 15-18), it seemed like an excellent idea to give some screen time to one of the most loved films to come out of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch, WAYNE’S WORLD.
