Escape from New York

As part of our “Kurt n’ Carpenter Triple Feature” on Saturday, August 13 we’ll be screening Escape From New York, their epic 1981 action film that sees director John Carpenter‘s “muse” Kurt Russell as the iconic, eye-patch-wearing Snake Plissken. Set in a dystopic 1997 in which a major war between the United States and the Soviet Union is concluding, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a giant maximum security prison. When Air Force One is hijacked and crashes into the island, the president (Donald Pleasence) is taken hostage by a group of inmates where Snake Plissken, a former Special Forces soldier turned criminal, is recruited to retrieve him in exchange for his own freedom. Also starring Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton, and Adrienne Barbeau.
