40th Anniversary screening!

In the words of Director Walter Hill, this film is about "Custom cars. Kissing in the rain. Neon. Trains in the night. High-speed pursuit. Rumbles. Rock Stars. Motorcycles. Jokes in tough situations. Leather jackets and questions of honour."

Greaser street gangs and over-the-top power ballads reign supreme in this underrated, underseen neon-drenched rock & roll fantasy. 

When singer Ellen Aim (Diane Lane) is kidnapped by gang leader Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe), her boyfriend and current manager Billy Fish (Rock Moranis) hires her ex-boyfriend-turned-mercenary Tom Cody (Michael Paré) and the rough-and-tumble McCoy (Amy Madigan) to save her.

Set in a hyper-stylized "another time, another place" where the night is eternal, the rain never stops, and '50s pulp teenage dreams merge with '80s action bravado (Butterfly knives! Explosions! Sledgehammer fights!), this film is meant to be played loud and on the largest screen possible! Don't miss it!
