1988. USA. Dir. John McTiernan. With Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman. 131 min.
Considered “the quintessential piece of action cinema” by some and “totally friggin’ sweet” by others, this iconic lone-man-vs.-terrorists showdown has been imitated often (on a bus, on a boat, on a plane…) but never duplicated. Explosions, emotions, humor, and a little Christmas cheer mix into a perfect, potent brew of yippee-kai-yay.
DATE: Tonight, October 8
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
