Second Dark Age Double Feature

7:00p: RoboCop
Viciously murdered police officer Peter Weller is resurrected in half-robotic form to enforce Detroit, where almost no distinction is made between the conduct of top-level executives and street criminals. Called by Ken Russell “the greatest science-fiction film since METROPOLIS,” Paul Verhoeven’s tech-noir savagely satirizes Reaganomics and the consumerism of the ‘80s. (1987, 102 min)

9:05p: The Terminator
Traveling back in time from the future, cyborg Arnold Schwarzenegger cuts a hell-bent swath of destruction on his mission to kill the mother of an unborn enemy. James Cameron’s low-budget sci-fi actioner plugged into fears resultant of Reagan’s re-escalation of the Cold War and became one of the most influential films of the decade. With Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn. (1984, 108 min)
