It’s that time of the week again, y’all. Here’s a list of a moving pictures we’re excited to see.
Escape From New York
This is early ’80s sci-fi action at its finest. It’s the year 1997 and New York City is a police state (sounds familiar), but rather than shipping criminals to Rikers Island, the island of Manhattan has been converted into a maximum security prison where violence reigns. The probably named Snake Plissken (played by a mostly shirtless Kurt Russell) is not only working to bring back eyepatches, but he’s also on a reconnaissance mission to save the President after Air Force One crashes in the middle of Manhattan. Friday September 26th and Saturday September 27th at 12:20 am, IFC Center; tickets, $14
