A View To A Kill

A View To A Kill

“Dance into the fire.”

For many movie-lovers who came of age in the 70s and 80s, the always suave and sublimely debonair Sir Roger Moore will always be remembered as “their first Bond,” thanks to many memorable appearances in the franchise in such classics as LIVE AND LET DIE (1973), THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN (1974), THE SPY WHO LOVED ME (1977) and OCTOPUSSY (1983).

On Tuesday, July 12 we’re toasting Sir Roger Moore and his phenomenal tenure as the iconic British super spy with a screening of his seventh and final performance in the role, 1985’s A VIEW TO A KILL. Featuring memorable supporting turns from Christopher Walken (as super villain Max Zorin) and the electrifying Grace Jones – not to mention one of the decade’s catchiest theme songs courtesy of Duran DuranA VIEW TO A KILL is the height of decadent 80s nostalgia, and a fitting cinematic tribute to one of our favourite MI6 agents.

Investigating further, Bond is led to Max Zorin, the head of Zorin Industries. Soon Agent 007 faces off against the villainous Zorin and his tough Amazonian bodyguard, May Day, who are scheming to cause massive destruction that will eliminate the competition.

Batman: The Movie (1966)

Kaaapowie! Holy feature film, Batman … This one based on the tongue-in-cheek, campy 1960’s television series which helped form the basis of so many of the modern super hero films that are such a staple in pop-culture and movideom.
