Friday, September 1 @ 11:55 pm
Drink along to the movie! Drink during gunfights, with a memorable catch-phrase, and more! Full guidelines will be provided at the event.
“One of the most rude-tempered, rollicking gobs of spit in the face of 1980s politics this side of John Carpenter’s They Live.” – Slant Magazine
“One of the most fun (and graphic) superhero movies ever made, extrapolating present trends into the near future and commenting on our media-driven culture in the process.” – Senses of Cinema
“There’s a brooding, agonized quality to the violence that almost seems subversive, as if Verhoeven were both appalled and fascinated by his complicity in the toxic action rot.” – Chicago Reader
In a violent, near-apocalyptic Detroit, evil corporation Omni Consumer Products wins a contract from the city government to privatize the police force. To test their crime-eradicating cyborgs, the company leads street cop Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) into an armed confrontation with crime lord Boddicker (Kurtwood Smith) so they can use his body to support their untested RoboCop prototype. But when RoboCop learns of the company’s nefarious plans, he turns on his masters.
Dir. Paul Verhoeven. 1987. 102 min.
Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
